i need your help

Recommended Posts

@acnescars2000 We can call them severe I have seen worst often, your case is more complicated to treat and I will give the basics below. I have over 100+ people to help by PM today so will take me a bit of time to reply.

Thank for posting the picture, that helps.

Yes you have rolling scars,  textural scarring, PIE or wounding post acne, box cars, icepicks. Firstly please get the acne under control or you will spread bacteria and make the scars a worse issue. I see pustuals and comedones. That is your biggest issue besides the scarring the cause acne and it's ongoing. The redness is early scarring.


** Please Note I offer to acne scar suffers a "more" "customized" (private) consultation than the above general advice. Analysis, answering questions, ongoing support by Private Messaging. Feel free to message me there. Be patient as I can get over 100+ of the worst acne scar cases to help, it "may" take me up to 48 hours to respond.

Checkout the main scar treatments sub, find the FAQ pinned on top there, goto the bottom, there are Dr's or call around and ask who does cannula subcision or nokor subcision (needle type) to dermatologists and or plastic surgeons, consult a few before you decide who you like, even if you have to pay as treatment is expensive, better like them. Ask how many subcisions they do a month and if they treat your skin type. If they just do laser run they will just blast you and not solve your issue.

just wanted to let you know that my scars no longer look like this. I‘m on my last month on accutane and the scars on the picture look a lot better. I am still going to treat my scars, because my other side is severely scarred (funny, because i thought i had nothing there). treatments are going to start in a few months with a doctor, that learned from dr.rullan (based in europa). I am going to get subcision, microneedling and phenol cross.

Those are fresh scars that got better on their own. no procedures yet, because I am on accutane. Going to start treatment in 2 months.

Wth?  Wow your skin improved so much on its own.  That's one of the most dramatic cases I've seen.   I think after a few treatments you will make good progress.  Please continue to update us.

What was your daily accutane dose? How long did you wait after finishing Accutane before starting scar treatment? Your skin looks good.

I was taking 20 mg every day for 9 months.. I stopped one week before subcision and will continue taking iso in two weeks..

Interesting. I would personally stop Accutane for at least six months, but my skin is most likely more sensitive than yours. I wish you all the best with your upcoming treatment and keep us updated.

Some new research suggests Accutane can be used simultaneously with procedures, but better safe than sorry at this point. Did you use retinol, Differin, or any other topical? How about any peels? That improvement seems really drastic.

no, I did not. My derm said that low dose accutane does help with scarring. I don‘t know.. guess I was lucky. One scar on my forehead was really deep and it filled in almost completely. The other side of my face was still severely scarred and did not improve on its own. Now with the subcision everything is  leveled out. Of course its not perfect.. you can still see where the scars once were. But then again it has only been a week since my treatment..

Hello acnescar2000, 

wow, congrats on your improvement, it is huge judging from your photos. And just on Accutane alone. I also have fresh scars that I am willing to treat soon. How did the subcision go for you? Did you see a doctor from the list of BA? 

Wishing you good recovery and results from the procedure!

Thank u ! subcision went well, no lumps or scars from the incision. I still have bruising tho.. i think it is because I am suctioning. Improvement at the moment is about 70-80 % ( I know, most likely it is not going to stay that way) The doctor is located in Switzerland :) 

All the best for u !
