  2. Cant you try retina?

  3. You can keep trying different products but i would suggest a course of oral anti biotics,something like tetracycline and see if that clears it up when the course ends then obviously you can see if it gets rid of it.the problem is they are in and under your skin so can be difficult,so fight them inside.

  4. More Than a Month
  5. Just a word of advice on needling,just dont use a dermaroller.use stamp type needlng method.

  6. You got a bit (not loads) of tethered deeper or medium depth stuff,so you wanna lift the deeper scars.

    tca cross for the smaller scars,this will help with appearance of scar by lifting/filling the dent and your overall appearance,you change them scars and your appearance changes.

    subcision on larger stuff even if its not nokor and some is better than none,but after care,suction or fillers?

    but tca cross on some of the smaller scars,i see like 6 scars that jump out so maybe 3-4 can be tca crossed,i know from experience,my skin is like yours.you tca cross and you will get improvement in the scar you treat.50% tca to start and see how your skin reacts,if good just stay at that concentration,if its stubborn then take it to up to 70%.100% guarantee tca will heal your appropriate scar.

    Get targetted subcision and get them individualy subcised but after care matters,suction or fillers?

    subcision can help the tca cross lift the scar by changing the tethers and overall scar.

    but way i went at my skin i would tca cross your skin,easy diy just follow guidelines.get the dents lifted and then resurfacing.

    tca peels alternating with needling,only needle the scars not whole face as your overall face seems ok just usual
    cheek areas.

    needling gonna help lift whats left of depression and peel will help smooth and at mediuam strength 30-35% its gonna encourage collagen to certain degree.

    basicly doing all this at home now for like 16 months and getting improvement but my skin worse than yours.

    so i know what your scar look like,i know what i look like,i know what i did and what worked and cross,peels and dermastamp (not roller) works its just over long period as its mostly in the healing and that takes ages so spacing your treatment out is important,6 week min and up to 3 months.

    i even self subcised my face but another story and it did good but i dont encourage it.

  7. Try a course of oral anti biotics from dr,oxytetracycline or similar.

    I just treat my skin and wait the healing time,things should/will get better,you will want to look in mirror to see how you improve.

  9. years of acne scar

    Forums Scar treatments 30 replies

    Be sure to wait a minimum of 6 weeks when your doing the tca work,longer is better,so you improved so not soo desperate to improve,so now is good time to let your skin heal longer.

    maybe a couple of months,the more healing you get the less treatments and downtime,this time can be spread over a year.

    yes,vast improvement,keep it up and looking good.

  10. Reason for retinal creams is more likely your skin type,asian maybe so you need to bleach skin.but,for fillers shouldnt need them.

    dont do surface treatments till you get the scars lifted/untethered,this is what filler is for permenant or temporary.

  12. You can use water to neutralise the peel,thats not a problem,onviously plenty and just massage it on your skin few handfulls.

    we work low % first and work up but observe your skin amd how it grows and heals afterwards.if you reach 25% amd this makes a noticable change in your skin then its good for you,just wait ling time for healing inbetween treatments.

    Ethnic type skin needs bleaching for 3 weeks prior,i aint Ethnic so cant speak from experience.

    In the right light you will more likely have deficiency everywhere that there is scarring,its what this kind of scarring is,something missing while healing creates a small dink.

    tca cross for ice pick type or smaller scars,that will lift and heal them in %.that should make your appearance better.tca peel at higher strengths will help with smoothening your skin out and reduce the smaller ice picks,scarred pores.you could bermastamp alternating,dont roll,monthly or every so often.

    also i think you either got folliculitus or had it in past,why you have poral appearance even in your hair and thinning.you need to get rid or control it by going dr and checking it checked and right treatment,usualy anti biotics.it breaks skin out in acne.

  15. The biggest scars,theres 2 on one side of your face,i would tca cross them.then i would tca peel or use other resurfacing technique.but,your asian and before you do any tca or acid work you should bleach treat your skin before you do anything.

    You can use fat but usualy first they subcise your skin,with needle.if you want fillers they inject that after your swelling gos down,so they can better fill your skin.filling can be done at same time by someone with lots of confidence/experience.

  17. Just warm clean water wash and simple moisturiser.

  18. Your skin gonna retether as it cant stay loose,idea is to control how you heal and control the appearance of the scarring.why suction or filler is used for deeper scarring thats subcised,trying to create spacer/area that stays podged up to change appearance after healing.in due course the filler is absorbed and gets replaced by bodies own collagen,you gain a little each time so you repeat treatment till you get the required improvement and have to use a different treatment.usaly about 3 subcisions ate tequired but that depends on your scarring,whats being treated,how well its done and whos doing it,then theres your own ability to heal,sone people heal better than others.

  19. Just use the handpump thingy out the cupping set and use that directly on your scar and suction the subcised areas for 5-10secs for say 3x a day for around 10 days or even 2-3 weeks.then stop and just let your skin heal.

  20. For scarred pores and smaller boxcar and boxcar tcs peel is beneficial,i can atest to it.it takes strong tca and good application,getting penetration of the skin and long healing,at least 6 weeks,doing many over a year period will definately yield results but a lot is dependant on how your skin heals.alternating with needling and having a good moderate needling session and wait at least 4-6 weeks for that to heal should yeild results for sure.

    if you had subcision and had at least 1 treatment it can also make the needling and tca peel work better as the scar is left more vunerable to the treatments and suseptable to change/healing.

  21. Some people are just like that,they learn that smooth blemish free skin make you pretty,whats a smooth ugly person?>_<

    in a year or so let him see you with less blemishs and regret but the worlds full of men and women.

    nokor subcision is preferable with filler if you can afford it,if not suction is required.

    your pics are blurred so i cant see what can be tca crossed or not,regardless i am sure you gonna need 2-3 sessions of subcision,it depends on how well the treatment is performed and how you heal.once the skin starts smoothing out you could do an rf microneedling session to see if it helps with collagen and filling in the dinks.

    dont buy in on lasers,be sure any rf microneedling is insulated,basicly sound off and ask here first,let us know whats on offer and how and you get good advice on what you should get and even about settings,never go to high on energy using treatment.

    subcision shouldnt require any skin bleaching,just get it done thoroughly,you need to free the tethers that anchor the skin down and heal the space or fill it out.

    skin repair and healing is where the magic lies but correct treatment/method is required for correct result.

    we are working under the epidermis here at first not ontop of it,here is where the damage lies so heres where we need to repair.

  22. Rf microneedling is supposed to be good on deeper to medium depth scarring but think subcision is standard proceedure that cuts them tethers and helps the skin be released and filler helps control the way the skin retethers and heals,suction is used as an alternative.

    takes multiples of any treatment,rf microneedling can be used for collagen production and be used to breakdown scars and then healing process takes over.

    if you gonna get a skin dr to do the work,they should be able to examine your skin and pull it and feel it and decide on best for you but these treatments are more likely best.not lasers or resurfacing treatments,we are treating the scar under or in the skin,this is where you want to work till you smoothen out and you will.

    it takes ages but if you do right treatment and heal well and look after your skin you will see difference after first couple months but in small %.so a year in you will/should look better but its a long journey as its all in the healing and it takes ages.

    so thats the pay route,at home you can needle but dont used roll method,at the minimum use a stamp method but you alternate that with tca peeling but strong % up to 35%ish but wouldnt go stronger,you start of on weak % like 15 and work yor way up increasing % reach peel to reach 35%.

    alternate with say 6 weeks min of healing period between treatments and you should get improvement.

    we all different and heal different so see how you heal after each treatment.

    your asian?

    there might be a guide line for asian skinned people to follow like bleaching agent prior to tca peels,if so find out and take precautions,you might have to treat your skin couple weeks before tca peel.

  23. And stay out of sun!

    dont think “hey it cool” sit in the sun and cook your skin,could and may cause problems.sun wont do it any favors at all,more likely have an effect on your pigment.
