Scar Treatment Progress

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I wanted to share my progress and get input on the future directions of this journey. 
 

So far I’ve had 

Nokor Subcision in SF(Oct 2020)

Nokor Subcision with Juvederm in SF

( Nov 2020)

3X Genius RF in NYC ( May through July 2021) 

 

The first photo is before any treatment.
Second is after the Subcisions and the last one is 2 months post the last Genius RF.

After 2X Subcision

I am thinking of continuing with more treatments. I’ve been advised to try fractional Co2 but worried about PIH.

I was seeing Dr. Krishnan at Arya Derm before I moved to NYC. Now seeing Dr. Ron Shelton.

considering that you had two subcisions very close to each other (and this is very bad for healing) you got a tremendous results already. Keep it up.

Hi, I would personally like to recommend what I would do in your case as a start to finish process, please don't expect perfection but in this case approximately 80% is achievable. What I have made below is the ideal process for you if money and time was not an issue change and adapt it according to your constraints and I wish you the very best and your scars do not define you.

Thanks for sharing your recommendation. This seems too excessive for me but could work great. So fractional CO2 can be done alongside subcision? Also, I heard that regular fractional lasers thin the skin and may cause PIH in my skin type. I am not convinced that RF micro needling is aggressive enough for my deep scars. Great for texture/tightness though.

Personally for you, I would say that the 6 months of pih is worth the improvement in scars and if it bothers you that much you can get a laser like vbeam to reduce it

I really would recommend looking into tca paint and co2 fractional as this should give you the greatest amount of improvement for your money
