  1. Bellafill after microneedling

    Thank you so much! I read the FAQ not sure why my doc is recommending the bellafill as a first line, apparently they treat lots of acne scarring here and she was recommended to me by other derms in the area. I read the FAQs but am still a bit confused as to whether to keep up microneedling at all, I know you said its more maintenance and it sounds like CO2 laser is typically just the last thing to do just to even things out correct? Is microneedling generally better than than and I know you said years, she recommends sessions of 3 at a time so I'm not sure how often to even go back for that but clearly it sounds like I need to do the subscision and filler first correct? Sorry I'm so confused, very much a newbie and my scars are very difficult for me to see daily and deal with so I'd like to hold out more hope that in years they could be corrected somewhat. I've had them for 5 years now.
  2. Is there literally ANYTHING that will disguise deep acne scars? Most of mine are boxcar or rolling...
  3. Accutane!

    I know its been awhile since you posted this but I had pyoderma faciale. It was the most horrible experience of my life. I was 28.
  4. Microneedling vs. CO2 laser?

    I had pyoderma faciale and according to docs have every type of scar type in different combinations, most are boxcar or rolling with some ice pick and 2 hypertrophic. What are your thoughts on treatments working for these?
  5. Bellafill after microneedling

    I mostly have boxcar scars but some are rolling and a few ice pick. Here are some pics but not the clearest. What are the biggest risks?
  6. Will treatment help? *pics*

    I have had 3 microneedling treatments with PRP and don't see much improvement (~5%). I was told I have every possible type of acne scar. Most are boxcar, then rolling, then icepick, and 2 hypertrophic ones. I had pyoderma faciale at 28 and am now 33. I have included pictures (not as clear or as bad as in person of course) and am looking for advice as to whether or not to try fraxel CO2 laser, bellafill or something else. How much improvement could I even hope to see? Looking for the best results and to not waste a bunch of money if results will always be minor.
  7. Bellafill after microneedling

    Microneedling with PRP made minor improvements, I have LOTS of piting still. Is Bellafill a good treatment for this? Is there much difference? Does it last like its supposed to?
  8. Microneedling vs. CO2 laser?

    I just finished 3 microneedling sessions with PRP and have noticed only a 5-10% improvement. I'm not sure whether to proceed with CO2 laser or not, its really costly and has a lot of down time. Anyone try both and have an opinion?
