Post-Blunt Cannula Subcision & Sculptra #1 w/Dr.Lemckert (Hamilton, ON) [w/Pics]

Yesterday, I had my first subcision & sculptra filler session with Dr. Lemckert in Hamilton, ON. It feels sooooo good to get the first one finally done, I've been waiting all month for it. It surprised me, how much personal satisfaction I got from hearing the sounds of many of my scar bands untethering....harmonious music to my ears. It was strangely very emotional empowering.

Dr. Lemckcert seems very knowledgeable to me. I made it well known, from my initial consult with him back in August, that I have done an excessive amount of research on atrophic acne scarring and I won't be investing in a laser treatment util i've had several subcisions. Even then, the laser would be useful for texture irregularities, not much else.

I have had a lot of laser treatments done in the past and they have done only a modest improvement for my scarring.. like 5-10% after a dozen etwo type of thing.

Nonetheless, I am happy he went very aggressively and did multi pass, as I had requested. I am really swollen but happy haha. IMG_20190928_160619.jpg.b89e28c2911c2926e41e20372403104c.jpgIMG_20190928_160606.jpg.4f5ff5c38cb6b8218ef634a0d12175e8.jpgIMG_20190928_160619.jpg.b89e28c2911c2926e41e20372403104c.jpg

He definitely broke up more bands on the left side of my face, which was more tethered than the right

Will post more photos once the microswelling is done. 

After sculptra.. Am i supposed to massage my face to avoid lumps? Online it says yes but my after care instructions at the clinic didn't include that. 

Also, is it 10 weeks or 3 months until my next session of sculptra + subcision? 

And will my next session treatment be the derminator, in a month? 

@beautifulambition what can I do to maximize chances of bands not tethering again? Can i also do Chinese shopping even though i did sculptra

I'm interested in pursuing the same treatment with Dr. Lemckert in the future - glad to hear you had a positive first treatment experience! I'll be following your journey with great interest. Best of luck!

Yes follow his aftercare instructions.

Am i supposed to massage my face to avoid lumps? - typically yes. Ask if you have any questions, as I did not inject it.

3 months is fine, ... That's 12 weeks. 10 is close enough. Observe, you know when to stop and when to go get more.

Yes one month post is fine.

You can Chinese Cup only to scars - spot treat... that are still atrophic 1 week post, don't go overly aggressive. If there is any complications stop immediately of course and discuss with your provider.

BA, I thought chinese cupping was for subs only not subs + sculptra is that still safe to do?

UPDATE: 10/23/2019 (almost four weeks since my first subcision + sculptra on 09/27)

LEVEL OF PERCEIVED IMPROVEMENT: 10-15%

 

I didn't feel it was right to post anything until at least a few weeks until my first session of sculptra + subcision as sculptra does not provide immediate results but takes a few months to begin stimulating collagen. Nonetheless, it has only been almost four weeks but my scars definitely seem smoother and shallower. I'm definitely a lot more content with the right side versus the left though.

I've booked my second subcision + sculptra for late December and will update after that treatment as well.

I have been doing suction as well but honestly have not been consistent at all...

Will probably book an etwo just to keep creating that friendly collagen stimulating environment haha.
