  1. If you're light skinned get subcision followed by Fraxel Repair. There have been enough scientific journals that have proven its efficacy. Stay away from punch excision, it has the potential to make scars much worse if your body is not genetically programmed to heal in a certain way. For subcision and Fraxel the only way to go is up in terms of improvement. If 1-2 weeks of hiding is going to deter you from choosing the absolute best laser, then I have nothing to say.
  2. I don't see a scab right now, just a red hole. Shit...
  3. Hey guys. I got one ice pick scar crossed and immediately noticed that the scar looked deeper but narrower. I saw frosting with a deep hole, and now no frosting with a deep hole. It's been almost 5 hours since i got it done. IS THIS NORMAL?? I'm freaking out!! Thanks.
  4. This has happened to me before. You most likely had a pimple in which the pus never came to the surface. The scar was formed when the dermal damage was done by the inflammation. It was only after removing what was leftover from it that you experienced an ice pick scar. Even if the pus came to the surface right away when the pimple formed, you most likely still would have had this small ice pick scar. The hole will decrease in size, but will not completely go away in the coming days.
  5. I am a Chicagoan like you Leo. Besides Dr. Shah, which other doctors did you find helpful for scar treatment?
  6. Go to a derm and ask for accutane! It was something i did not do and as a result, got acne scars. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.
  7. I would need to see pictures of your scars so I can you tell if they're 'coverupable' by my technique.
  8. My other account is '4meracneguy', this is how my skin looks from afar
  9. I got acne scars in high school. It took me one year to figure out how to conceal my pitted scarring using experimentation and a TON of time, during which I took an entire year off from college (1st year). I'm now 22, 3 years removed from when I started covering the holes in my face and I still feel like crap because I know that every morning when I get up it will take 1 hour to apply the makeup, and it's not perfect (someone looking very closely may be able to tell I have makeup on). Most days
  10. I was told by a dermatologist that a guy named Matthew kelleher (in naperville) was very good. So I went in to see him two weeks ago and said he could give me 40-60% improvement--but only if I first go to a shrink for his perception that I have bdd. This guy has been treating scars for 20 years apparently. I went to Dr. Anil Shah last year (got a nose job with him in 2010) and he told me straight up that he does maybe 1 or 2 treatments a month and couldn't guarantee anything. Chicagoan f
