  2. @EvidentNancy at least your improvement on one side is quite OK. I went to see him as well and feel like I spent money for nothing, I see no improvement after 2 weeks from his field and individual subcision.. He didn't even fill up my scars enough so they would level up at least for few months or so..  I cant believe how highly recommended he is in here..

    Yes, it was immediate due to the filler - I got Bellotero. I think cannula created a good pocket for it so the area got lifted nicely with the filler. On my other smaller scars where I didn't get subcision just the filler I got some donut effect or the filler just went away very quickly.. I think I eventually needed Nokor anyway to really cut through all the tethers.. But since I already heart popping with cannula I think it also helped to create enough space for the filler.. Some say cannula is too blunt to cut all the tethers for truly attached scars so hard to say.. Anyway this scar of mine was also ideal for subcision, I have other small ones and it is yet to be seen if I will get the same result there.. So we should not generalize. But I would definitely always add filler to my subcision unless you plan to repeat it very soon like the OP here, so it can be done after.

    @Amp2695 I talked about this in another post but I had one deeper scar subcised with a blunt cannula a year ago and heart some popping sound and then had it filled straight (there was almost no bleeding since cannula enters the skin few cm away from a scar) and then in a week time I had it filled again even more to level it out after swelling.. I got pretty impressive improvement maybe 90% for 4-5 months it became invisible and now after a year there is no filler left and I think it's still 50 % less deep.. In between I had another subcision done with Nokor on the same scar - this was like 4 months ago in London, the doc said it was still/again tethered a lot, (back then there was still a bit of filler left..) But after the Nokor subcision without filler I haven't seen much improvement it stayed the same - as I said overall still 50 % better than before. Also I had another 3 small scars subcised without filer and suction and seen no improvement. My next step is subcision with filler and really pray for some improvement like I observed for the very first time with cannula and HA filler..

    Yes, no improvement from all of it actually, I have only seen improvement with subcision and filler done on my medium deep scar in past.. And this is what I want to do next.. What about your RF needling - will you do it again?

    I had the TCA cross with a well known doc for acne scars in London he did it just after the Dermapen and subcision on all of my scars and I have mostly rolling superficial scars.. 4 months later they are all healed (my skin was healing for maybe a month after all the procedures but I was back to work pretty much straight with some makeup) but I do not see any improvement from it .. I'm actually worried one box car scar got a bit deeper, so better invest in fillers..

  8. @Scarredtodepression I was wondering because Nokor subcision is normally done with many entry points scar by scar.. And cannula subcision is done with very few entry points.. Maybe ask him next time what he used  :smileys_n_people_38:
  9. @beautifulambition thanks! so cannula subcision is basically a field subcision - as Dr. Novick does? 
  10. Hey, did he use the Nokor needle or a cannula? Thanks 

  11. Hey @incepticon , you make me confused.. I just read a reaction from you on another post saying you are not happy with your subcision results and the doctor, and here you say you see some good results on 'a lot of your deeper scars' .. :smileys_n_people_38:

  12. He doesn't like fillers in general even HA fillers that are not permanent and many others in here, including me, do like them.. PRP didn't work for me because it doesn't act as a filler it just helps you heal faster according to some.. He only subcised 4 of my scars instead of many more as I would like and I did not get a visible improvement like with filler before, so I was not happy.. Next time I want to do subcision combined with filler as well.. 

  13. He works in a private clinic now so I dont believe it has anything to do with NHS.. When I asked him he told me he doesn't believe in fillers as they tend to relocate/ cause issues etc.. For tethering he suggested PRP.. I advise you to combine your subcision with filler, I wish I would have done that instead of the Chu's treatment which did not give me any result.. Can your local doc do that? (My scars are also mostly rolling btw)

  14. @incepticon Why can't you post some recent close up picture so we can see the issue? When did you stop Roaccutane? Do you smoke?
  15. @Sirius Lee but isn't Sculptra meant to be injected deeply rather than superficially? What if she gets some lumps from it - isn't it too risky for such small scars? Or do you mean to put it deeper under the whole cheek area as Novick would do in some cases?

    If it is not showing and under the skin

    What do you mean by if it is not showing and under the skin?
    Means you can't see it in the mirror just feel it with your fingers once you touch it.. 
  17. @inception More important is what do you think? We do not know your scars as you do and these photos are not detailed enough to compare any before and after difference, but I see there are no more bruises, so did the scars get any better and will you see Dr. Emil again?
  18. Maybe the scars were too superifical for any fillers to begin with? I think laser and Infini is all what is left to try if you still wish so, otherwise as others say your face looks very pretty ^_^


  19. @eva_li Hey again Eva, thanks for updating us. I just wanted to say that I think the Dr. is correct as I felt like the rest of my filler (I had already had it for several months before my medical needling) was completly gone after the Dermapen. I tried to find some more info about this before and the docs on Realsef pretty much say that Infini is OK with fillers that are injected deeply for volume like Sculptra, but not superficially placed ones like in our case..

    @eva_li Hey Eva, did you also have some Nokor subcision with your fillers? How did you like the doc - would you recommend him? Did he also have good things to say about Infini?
