  1. I had it done privately as my doctor refused to refer me on the NHS. I had the consultation and treatment on the same day as i travelled a long way. I did phone his secretary first though and tell her that i would like to do this so they were aware of it and could book extra appointment time if necessary. At the consultation he had a look at my scars and explained what type i had and then told me how he treats them, he then asked if i would like to go ahead. He is very likeable and comes acr

  3. No peel is permanent. Not unless you use so high a concentration that it damages the dermis and creates burn scars. If someone has any research stating otherwise, please post. :] Dermabrasion is the only 'safe' lasting solution, along with subcision.
  4. justmeuk, thanks very much for this. I look forward to meeting him.
  5. I've been given a letter of referral to go and see Dr Chu at the Hammersmith hospital. Could you describe the session, did he make sure you understood everything beforehand, did you have a consultation prior to treatment? Did you get this done privately or on the NHS?
  6. Scars fade naturally over time. How long have you had these scars for and over how long a period are you talking about here?
  7. I'm going to start a dermapen treatment soon hopefully. See my gallery for before pics at least. :]
  8. In all honesty I don't see much difference but that's due, partly, to the fact that your after picture is occluded by your glasses and you having tilted your head, altering the projection of the light. In the centre of the original picture, that scar seems to have faded slightly post treatment. Maybe it's as you were told, it'll take some more - be careful though. Good luck with it.

  11. When it comes to treatments for scarring, the variable you should be paying the most attention to is the practitioner and their track record. Anyone can be trained to pour liquid, fire a laser or poke the skin. You need someone who understands the procedure inside out and isn't out to do just their job's worth. As with all things, you get what you pay for and specialists are a valuable resource considered to be at the forefront of their field. Research the individuals involved.
  12. The consensus seems to be that pore size cannot be made smaller, it can only be made to appear that way. Anything which causes tightening of the skin will have this effect, even then it will not be permanent. I always understood it as a genetic predisposition, hence there is nothing to heal.
  13. To my knowledge, subcision is the typical treatment for this sort of scarring. Get a consultation booked with an experienced derm.
  14. Aha! This is quite interesting, yet another new take on microneedling. Thanks for posting, I will be watching this very closely. Nope.avi, where did you come by that information regarding scar tissue becoming compromised at certain temperatures? Is it standard info which applies to laser-based treatments? Kind regards
  15. Thanks for posting this, it's good to share this sort of information. Do you have any before/after photos?
