  1. From looking at the pics on their website, looks like she had done a really good job!
  2. Hi oran, Glad to hear finally you have done 25 excision for your scars, I hope you'll see a great result!! I'm happy with my result too, still have redness but slowly faded. Good luck with your healing, keep us update with your progress! I used 2% hydroquinone, my dermatologist just prescribed 4% hydroquinone, will start to use it now. I have pm the details
  3. Thanks blahblah. I just want a skin that I'm happy with, not a perfection cause like you said earlier, that still out of reach. I attached before and after picture, that's my current pic, I have tried turmeric mask, aloe vera, hydroquinone, it help a bit but I'm really impatience, lol. I had redness after needling, so I stopped needling. Do you think peeling will help with redness?
  4. Thanks for ur advice! I think right now I have to focus to get rid redness first. I tried not to think about my skin too much but it's hard. My scars have improved but I'm really desperate to improve my skin texture. I have read about glycolic acid peel to help with redness, what do u guys think? I'm a bit terrified cause there possibilities I would make thing worse.
  5. Excision have helped my scars but my skin doesn't look smooth, thought that dermabrasion will help improve my skin texture. But from what you mentioned above, sounds too risky. I know my skin would never be perfect, I'm desperate to have "normal" skin. What can I do to improve my skin texture?
  6. I post some pics, 1st pic I have make up on and on 2nd pic without any make up on. Still have this uneven skin texture, I hope I'll get improvement from dermabrasion.
  7. Thanks missamua! Excision improved pitted scars, but I still have this uneven skin texture. I'll schedule for dermabrasion, still debating whether I'll do spot dermabrasion or full face. I think icepick and boxcar scars respond well with excision. Subcision and filler work well for rolling scars, I don't know whether you can do excision for rolling scar, I might be wrong though. Best of luck!
  8. I took low dose Accutane, 10mg/day, I waited for 1 year before excision. Redness fade after 1 month.
  9. I took low dose Accutane, 10mg/day for 3 months, I waited for 1 year before excision. Redness fade after 1 month.
  10. Hey attwater20, I'm back! Sorry for slow response, been really busy lately Those track marks are hardly noticeable now but still have some redness, I tried turmeric and aloe vera mask, will see how it goes, finger crossed! Recently, I've been doing needling in some scars that didn't get excise, I think it work, some indentation now become more like a linear scars and some level up with the rest of skin, will see the result a month from now. If it worked then I wouldn't need 2nd excision a

  12. Hey everyone.. Sorry it has been awhile after my last update, I tried to put some make up on , I don't like to put make up cause it make my scars more prominent but now after excision it look much better with make up on
  13. Hi oran.. So your surgeon said that the redness will be fade in time, my surgeon said the same, I know I shouldn't worry too much but couldn't help myself not to..lol..but thanks anyway.. poppy does your surgon see international patients do you think he was good where are u based cause its impossible to get a good plastic surgon here in the uk to do excision. Do you believed this can also be done on small ice picks or not. Yes excision can be done for icepick and boxcar scar. I'm based in Indo
  14. Thanks for the info.. I've been massaging my surgery scar, it works with new scar cause still in healing process. I'll keep massaging my scar!

  17. Hi! Glad to hear that my progress give hope to anyone in this community. Me too, I was lurking on this site before I decided to do acne scar revision, I've learned a lot from this site, I owe this community and hopefully I will give something back to this community. I tried to find information about excision but hardly find any good before and after pics, I scared that I would end up worse than before I started. I have this line scar level with the rest of skin, it barely visible and can't f

    2 weeks 5 days post excision

    Thanks! Hope it still continue improving
  19. I had scalpel excision with plastic surgeon, he cuts out the scars and stitches the skin shut, the sutures will be placed below the skin to keep the wound shut. Cause I have bunch of scars on booth cheeks, my surgeon didn't excised all my scars to prevent too much tension on my skin. I'll have 2nd excision for the rest of scars and then dermabrasion to smooth it out..I document my excision progress on my post..Not many PS or dermatologist that offer excision for acne scar, they prefer to offer l
  20. This afternoon I took pics both cheeks in different lighting. My right cheek pic took in a bad lighting, duh, the rest of scars that didn't get excise look worse!! I can't wait to get those scars excise, this is weird but I feel that surgery scar much better than pitted scar. I used to get depressed everytime I look at my scars but now I don't feel so depressed cause excision will take care of it. I'm so impatience now, can't wait for 2nd excision and dermabrasion then hopefully all those scars
  21. I read from other post here, they said that Mr. Matt had success with TCA cross for nose scar. Just a thought maybe you can try to PM him and ask him directly. U're so welcome lenar Thanks..I'll keep you guys update! Best of luck for you!! I hope you'll find the right treatment for you..
  22. Thanks a bunch!! My cheeks before were a mess and has that weird wavy texture but now it has improved. I'm still looking for improvement for the rest of my scars, hopefully after 2nd excision and dermabrasion I'll be happy and live with it.
  23. Acne scars, by far, one of my feature that rule my self esteem the most. Acceptance is a weird concept when you hope no one looks you in the face. Nowadays, there are a lot of options available for treatment acne scar. Make sure you put a realistic expectation about your result, acne scars can be improve to the level where you can live with it. Surgical treatment for acne scars is not an option you will read a lot about, but it is often the very best treatment for improving your complexion. Surg
