    I think the linear scars he is referring to are the kind of long ones you have in the middle picture on what would be -I think- your right cheek. They are long and perhaps would not do well with subcision- but I think subcising around them would fix a lot of the depth, because it is being pulled down by the tethering around it. I have similar scarring to yours and I am hoping to do ~2 or 3 subcisions, followed by infini rf, and then TCA peels and microneedling. I am looking forward to seeing your results... also in advance sorry if this message is all wonky, I realized I was SUPER tired midway through writing it but I wanted to let you know that I am rooting for you!!!
  3. Microneedling will not help this scar, and rolling is never recommended for the face. You will need subcision to break the tethering, perhaps with filler. You may need 3 treatments of this.
  4. I am familiar with that article, but there is a huge difference between 15% TCA and 25% TCA. Also, you must remember that those results were achieved in a lab-setting where things are carefully controlled and sterilized. The doctors are familiar with how skin should respond and would be able to react quickly to any dangerous side effects that appear. Someone at home would not have the same expertise. I do like that study, however, and I do agree with the results they were able to achieve.
  5. Heyyyy hehe I've been MIA because I started medschool this semester! Excited to start my scar treatment journey soon though! But yeah, I agree- the more rough you are with your skin, the longer you should wait!! There is no point in introducing even more damage
  6. Definitely do NOT do them on the same day, or even within the same week. This would be dangerous and harmful to your skin. Do one each month.
  7. What is monomorphic scar?

    Yes- exactly that. It means scars that are all of the same type and the same plane/depth (usually boxcar.)
  8. Choosing clinic in Korea

    Hey, I was in Korea over the summer for 2 months. I would bet the procedures are a lot more affordable there than in the U.S. The typical person there seems quite pampered and done up. It is definitely accessible to the average-income person there
  9. What to do about Scarring?

    Forums Scar treatments 9 replies

    Those divots are going to need subcision to start out with. I would say some you could get away without filler, but there are deeper ones which would really benefit from it (right by your mouth, near your ear.) You should start with that, and expect to need 3. Instead of filling, some areas could also be suctioned, but filler would be best. Afterwards (or in-between, depending on your healing and free time) 3 infini RF to address left-over atrophy and skin irregularities. From there, many many TCA peels or erbium laser for texture! For forehead lines if they bother you, botox would be best to address these

    @star-fox Hey there! Yes, Infini is great for both of those, but of course subcision would be best for any scars that are tethered. Infini won't give you perfection because it doesn't treat the skins surface, but it will definitely help fill in pitting or depressions

    Hey guys- thank you for your support. This is is an old post hehe and my scars have gotten less red in the past few months. Also, I finished university and just started medschool this month so keeping busy has definitely helped me focus less on my scarring. Unfortunately I've had to extend my accutane course, and my acne seems to just get worse over time. Been on for almost 7 months now. Still looking forward to improving my scars, especially the large rolling areas
