Infini RF + Subcision + Filler did nothing

Recommended Posts

After 4 Months, I can‘t see any bigger improvements on my scars after the first but bigger combination treatment.

 

Should I try another round of the same treatments or should I go for dermabrasion.

seems you have very shallow boxcars.
If you really want to flatten everything why not go for full ablative erbium laser across the cheek. Much more controlled than dermabrasion. Full ablative laser and dermabrasion provides the same functionality. One can debate that dermabrasion is more aggressive. But it’s better to be safe than sorry.

Idk I had way more ice-picks and I think they were generally deeper and Dermabrasion was successful. Definitely look into it, along with what getsmart suggests which is look at fully ablative options too. I am really not a believer of half measures with acne scarring. You either go big or go  home in most cases unless you're scarring is so modest that you never want to go big as it could reverse improvement or cause actual damage.

Not all is equal though, weigh the risks of what could go wrong with any procedures. But I had great success with Dermabrasion but I had icepicks and my doctor was very aggressive.

Which doctor you did dermabrasion and what instrument he used for doing it, also what is your Fitzpatrick type?

I'm not sure the exact instrument but it was early 2000 so whatever they used back then. I am (based on google looking) a type 2 Fitzpatrick type. The doctor was in NY area. He wasn't that good but he was obviously super aggressive it took 2-3 months to go from red to pink and 7-10 months to fade normally.

I want to say also I had 2 subcision PRP infini appts , first 6 weeks ago and 2 weeks ago and I have seen 0 change to scarring. I was hoping to see something by now , so I will instead do a laser.

It is not a scam. It gave results in my case but they are subtle to moderate. It can improve shallow scarring and also tightens the skin.

I have the same scarring and did 3 sessions of RF microneedling and saw about a 50% improvement over the process of the year. Treatment included strict skincare including retinol during treatments and tretinoin for a year after to boost collagen. Results came slowly and I'm currently pursuing a resurfacing laser so it's not 100%. 1 treatment would have never cut it, I did 3 back to back 6-8 weeks apart. It's up to you because infini can be expensive. I was treated with Genius. I never did subcision because I felt it was too shallow to be necessary.

I don't think RF is a scam but I have very little faith that it does much for moderate depth scarring. The scarring has to be shallow, which yours is shallow. I'm very thankful for the results I got but the two moderate scars I have showed little to no improvement.

A year. Two treatments combined with subcision. I am sure I will see more improvement if I do more. 

Improvement is undoubtedly there even though it is mostly noticed with the shallower issues. Other more severe scars haven't improved much but overall I am happy I got the treatment.

I see , for me it's only been 6 weeks, so perhaps a little too impatient , but my scars are relatively new

For shallow not tethered scarring CO2 all the way , it can make miracles , but not everyone  is suitable for CO2 , people with higher fitzpatrick should avoid this treatment and also u need experienced dr that know what he s doind and still healing is much longer then RMF and potential side effects are there of course

It takes at least 2, better yet 3-4 treatments for results. Give it another try and time!

How much % did you all see ? I think Acne scar treatments deliver 30% improvement at max ! more possible are 20% if there is improvement at all( if you can proof otherwise then show me). Let’s be realistic these procedures are risky as hell have a lot of side effects and don’t deliver great results and on top of that they’re damn expensive. Don’t forget you maybe pay this money and don’t get any results or worsen your scars. This industry is 90% scam let’s keep it real. Doctors play down side effects and are playing with people because some  forget how to think critical and realistic when it comes to scars(or they don’t want to) but this is just lying to yourself. Don’t get me Wrong it did the same mistake and I wish someone would say the same things I did to warn me that’s way im Posting this.

I would say 20-30 % overall improvement, 80% for shallow scars, 20% for deeper scars. While it is true that some doctors promise more than they can deliver, in my experience all have been very honest. We are all different and react to treatments differently so nobody knows what results you will get in the end. Side effects are always a concern  but a good dermatologist should keep the risk to a minimum.

Which doctor did you visit ?  Well the self crowned 1% acne scar cartel with Lim at the front isn’t that honest. I got subcision from with one of them  even though I didn’t even need it. I payed money for side effects…. 
And I know other people that had problems with the same doctor.

Well I’m happy for you :)  at least you got results. Would you send them to me per dm ? Or post them ? Most positive Reviews from Dr. Henningsen are from People that enter the board Write a positive Review and then dissapear. I would be nice to see a non fake result.

thank you :) I am hoping for more improvement with the next treatments. I don't know about other reviews, I wanted to chime in here because I saw improvement from this treatment combination. Even the deep scars improved if only by 10-20%. My goal is not to advertise the doctor just to share experience. For the time being I don't feel comfortable sharing photos but I might if I get more improvement.

In my experience rf needling isn't a scam.
