Is Sculptra good for shallow scarring

Recommended Posts

Sculptra should be reserved for those with widespread rolling scars. It shouldn't be used for boxcars or icepicks (eg. those with prominent scar edges). Also it's more effective when Sculptra is combined with an energy device than Sculptra alone.

thanks for your reply. my scars are mostly box cars and some ice picks/scarred pores but all of them are mild imo. when i go to clinics they just seem to give me very intense treatments when it doesn't seem necessary. i was thinking about a medium deep peel, but i don't know if there are other options besides phenol peel

It's hard to say without first seeing your scars. But if they're "mild", phenol peel is not a good fit. Phenols are for more severe scars.

can i send you a picture? i feel a little uncomfortable sharing public photos. apparently co2 can be efficient, but i keep wondering about the amount of sessions and whether it's worth it in the long run

i thought about a sedated peel because i read that the risks are inferior compared to lasers and because i think i have a similar level of scarring but im not really educated

Yes, send me the pics my way.

BTW that picture was taken only 18 day post-op. Way too short. You should ideally wait at least 3 months (6 months is the most ideal). Since she never updated us after that, I guess we can only speculate.
