  1. Will Do.....but I think it will be a slow process.
  2. Hi Kim I just ordered some dermatix and I'll give it a try. Let me know how it works for you if you would. http://www.icncanada.com/sigel/index.html
  3. One other thing that I just remembered is that you should not take anything that will thin your blood for about a week before and after having subcision. You want a nice blood clot to form in the areas the subcision was preformed and blood thinners will have a negative effect on that. Aspirin and ginkgo biloba are two blood thinners that come to mind but I'm sure there are many more.
  4. Shiny...it takes some time after nlite before the collagen starts to rebuild so having subcision a few days before or after nlite may have the same effect. I'm sure Dr. Chu has his reasons for doing the nlite first.
  5. It probably doesn't matter much which procedure is done first as long as they are done at about the same time. The important thing is to not have scars that are tethered down when the collagen begins to build from the nlite. Dr. Rapaport states on his web site that he prefers to the nlite one to four days after subcision.
  6. Jamie, IMHO the best thing you can do before nlite is to have subcision. I know that's not really the kind of info you are looking for, but I have been told by a derm how important it is to have subcision on rolling scars if you want to get the most from these types of lasers.
  7. Ylem... If you don't mind me asking did you have subcision on your rolling scars before the sm treatments? One of the points Dr. rapaport made was that although smoothbeam does help in the building of collagen, in the areas where the rolling scars are tethered down there won't be much of a positive effect..
  8. John, don't make the same mistake I did by going to his old office in Fort Lee. Dr. Rapaport is now at 333 Sylvan ave, Englewood Cliffs. Good Luck !
  9. I went to see Dr. Rapaport Oct. 9 th and I had the following treatments local tca, subcision and excision. I would of gone back the next day for n-lite but I can't afford it at this time. I found Dr. Rapaport to be very professional and very down to earth.
  10. Here is a good site to find a Doc in your area that uses lasers, and than you can check the Docs website to see what type of laser they use. http://www.lasersurgeryinamerica.com/abstract5.php
  11. Does anyone have info on this product...seems like a very low price for topical accutane ? http://search.cartserver.com/search/search...tane&maxhits=20
  12. Hi there Banana, the only link about this treatment that I'm aware of is this one. http://www.blackwell-synergy.com/servlet/u...25.2002.02095.x
