Recommended Posts

Hi everyone! I am looking for recommendations and suggestions on what kind of treatments to get for my type of scarring? I’m desperate!

I would look into TCA Cross and deep fractional CO2 laser treatment at the end. Microneedling is an option but I'm not too high on it (manual or radiofrequency).

I'm not sure where you are, if you're willing to travel, or what your budget is, but don't restrict yourself to doctors and procedures locally. To expound: some doctors will only treat you with the devices they have in their office; some doctors don't do certain treatments (Cross, subcision, etc.).

There's something called a Phenol Peel done by Dr. Rullan in San Diego. Only a handful of doctors do this. It's expensive ($6k) and requires an overnight stay. I'm just throwing this out there as a possibility since many people are unaware of this. Disclosure: I've seen him several times and he's popular on this forum. I have no ties to him or incentives. He's also one of the leading doctors to do subcision and Phenol Cross, although he jacked his price up in the last few years.

Please ask questions and some of the help members here will contribute. Don't just jump into a treatment because the doctor told you so unless you have lots of cash to burn.

Hi Amanda, thank you. I am in Philadelphia. San diego is definitely too far. I have been researching though! I appreciate your feedback. :)

You're welcome. Please feel free to keep posting on this forum and asking people here about doctors near you and procedures. So many dermatologists and plastic surgeons aren't skilled at treating scars (people on this forum aren't experts either!) so it's best for you to gather as much information as you can from all parties. I've seen a number of dermatologists and plastic surgeons and most of them just tell you what they read from brochures about collagen remodeling and all of that crap.
