  1. I used a manual suction machine made for chinese cupping method. I used the smallest cup available (it came with 10 different sizes). It was around 25 USD
  2. I will say the name of the doctor, because I want to plan to make a big review on her anyway. I did my procedure in Singapore in Le Private Clinic and doctor was Eileen Lew. She was just amazing and very professional. She is so caring, patient and thorough. She is a perfectionist and that's who you want for your skin treatment. The nodules were noticeable to others, it looked like a pimple, but it just wasn't red. But mostly - it was noticeable to me. Honestly, I didn't mind it that much. Esp
  3. Hi everyone! As I promised, I am back to update you about the next steps, which I did in my scar fighting battle I underwent another round of subcision and that was about 9 weeks ago. I attached a before and after picture to this post, so please have a look (left one is after the procedure and the right one is before - sorry for the confusion) This time, I tried the suction machine after 4th day after the procedure. I suctioned approx 1 week. The results are really good for me. I did derma
  4. Actually I had problems with nodules after subcision too. But after I did needling & dermastamping, my nodules disappeared. Don't stress, like I did Give it a month - two and try to needle them, if they won't change. And there is still the hydrocortisone in the worst case Good luck with your healing!
  5. I hope so. But i dont know what to use for topical. My collagen production is very low due to stress and stuff, and i would like to increase it with topicals. But i can't use any retin-a or aha stuff as long as i dont know what this red areas are. It looks really horrible! Hm, I've heard, that vitamin C is an important supplement for collagen production. So, try some creams and vit C capsules or get the vitamin from the fruits & veggies. As well protein is crucial. Gelatin, meat, bone
  6. As I said, this is what my derm told me. I can ask her for more information. She didn't say anything about Retin A, she was mentioning Accutane. I used Retin A for over a year, I broke out with cysts and they left scars. Then I stopped. When I had a cyst on my face, it didn't leave a scar. Then I switched to Epiduo. I used it for 2-3 months - cysts left scars. Plus my pores were huge and texture shiny and horrible. I stopped with tretinoin treatments and I had no new scars at all, even from the
  7. I saw pretty nice results from TCA cross for icepick scars and I'd go for subcision too. Meanwhile try some needling every 6 weeks. You can get some nice results for less money. Good luck
  8. Retin - A does make Scars?! Thats quite interesting, because i did use retin - a the last few days. My doc said its safe to use now. But i think it did worsen the spots. Do you have still the scars? Depends on people I guess. I had NEVER scars before I used Retin A. From a few months of having acne - bam! My face is covered w it. My dermatologist asked me, If I used Accutane, when I said no, she warned me not to ever use it, as the new study claims, that it causes new scars. It contains Isotre
  9. I am not unhappy with the procedure itself and it did not do any damage. I just expected better results and I am questioning myself, what went wrong. Not enough of vitamines? Genetics? Bad supplements? Wrong aftercare? Robertitooo is just right...you never know, what procedure will work on you. But subcision has quite good reviews and quite low risk level. Definitely try it! Good luck! And yes, I would go for suction and microneedeling too (also low risk levels).
  10. Looks like the scarring, which Retin-A left on my skin... Ask the doctor, I am quite curious, what will he tell you.
  11. I don't think she marked it with a pen, however, I think she followed the photo, what she took. She had some kind of a professional device, which makes your scars look crazy bad (I didn't want to see my pic to be honest, I think I would get depressed). She numbed each and every scar separately and after a little injection, she subciside it straight away, so I don't think it had any time to swell. I expected I will get 2-3 injections for my whole face, but I think I got like 30 of
  12. I recommend you to take at least 5 days off. From my experience... If you are boy, you might need even longer time, coz as a girl you can wear makeup.

  14. Thanks for your replies, guys I take it easy, I knew I wouldn't be fully satisfied until 3rd treatment will be done. I think I will try suction method too this time.
  15. Hello everyone! A quick update about my results from subcison. It's been 2 months from my 1st subcision. The healing went quite OK, except of a few nodules, which developed on my face. They were quite big, they weren't painful, but I could feel them on my skin. I did one dermarolling session after 6 weeks from my first subcision and the nodules became much much smaller. I can't see them, but I still can feel them a little bit. I don't mind them anymore though. I am attaching two pictures
