Hmmm, dont really look that bad to start off with, just looks like the red marks make it look a whole lot worse, making it look more uneven.

what treatment was used on that?

Well, Im not trying to be a smart @ss but, his scar does not look like an acne scar..it looks like an indented injury scar..like something "gashed" his face...I dont think there is a name for it.

perhaps it is: contusional gashernoma fascial reverse edema? eusa_think.gif

yea that is what his looks like which looks like mine. but i know when i first got mine it was a giant red pimple that dented into my skin since like 97 thats why i was trying to figure out what kinda scar it was to see what i can do about it. would u go with needling on that or 100%cross i dont think cross has to the trick for me omn that one any suggestions??

In my opinion that guy didn't need scar revision. If your SCAR is like his or even less don't waste your time, you might make your life EVEN WORSE.

there does'nt even look like theres a major indent there, maybe a slight uneveness, which some of you will say is an indent.. but it was a very very minor indent

I would not do TCA cross, you may make it deeper (and your life hell) if your scar is that large. I personally, would go for a filler, its quick, non invasive, the scar is corrected instantly...and you can move on with your life....just a thought.

I have to agree with nodoubt. If that is the only scar you are worried about I would go with a filler.
