  1. My subcisions were performed by Dr Morganroth in mountain view California. No fillers were used (California skin institute) my laser and dermapen were performed in Miami at Bowes Dermatology. The laser was called icon xd
  2. The pictures on the left are before I did any treatments. Unfortunately that was years ago so my camera quality wasn’t as good. I’m actually quite happy with my results. Some scars are almost gone. Most are much more shallow. I used to only be able to see my scars. They’re starting to improve enough that I can see past them now. I’ve accepted the fact that they’ll never be gone completely, but gradual improvement is enough for me. ive done 4 rounds of subcision ($6,000 total) ive
  3. Yes. You should look at my old thread for photos of my skin before and after I had the subcisions and compare those photos to the photo on here so you can see how my skin has changed and maintained results in the last few years. I’m glad I did the subcision - it made my scars less “jagged” looking to me and the results lasted. Yes, I couldn’t find any either. The only thing I could find was a video of the nurse who did the laser on me getting it done herself. I was nervous she was only
  4. So many people have asked me for updates on my skin post subcision. As mentioned before, I had 4 subcisions and my last one was a few years ago. I have since moved from San Francisco to Miami, and I wanted to see if a doctor down here had any ideas for how to further improve my skin. I went to Bowes Dermatology and met with a nurse there. She told me she did not suggest any more subcision because it is so expensive. She said fillers were best used after subcision, so she didn’t recommend t
  5. Hi I just read your information on subcision and thank you for all the information that you put I just got my first one on February 8th I'm going for my second one March 2nd like you read your information on subcision and thank you for all the information that you put I just got my first one on February 8th I'm going for my second one March 2nd like you I felt like there was no results but I do see the scars a little later do you have any pictures of how your skin looks now I would greatly appreciate it and can you also let me know what suction means so I can do that because I didn't do that on my first session and high with suction my face and for how long? Thank you so much I hope you respond soon it's just so stressful because it's a lot of money and I would love to see someone else's results your first pictures that you have on your first session great your skin looks really pretty I'm happy for you

  6. Update: the top 2 pictures were taken summer 2016 right before my 4th and final subcision. The middle pictures were taken early 2017 in the same lighting (about 5 months after my last subcision). the bottoms pictures are just close ups of how my skin currently looks. You can see my scars are clearly still there, but they are improved from when I began my journey over a year ago. I'm still very pleased with my decision to do subcision, and every 6 weeks or so, I continue working on my scars b
  7. Ok so here's a month post my (for now) final subcision. I'm super happy with the results. Some scars are nearly gone and many of them are much more shallow. The pictures on the left are before I had any subcisions, and the right pictures are after 3. On the right, I just showered so my skin is a little red and makeupless, but hopefully you can still see the difference and be inspired to try subcision if your scars bother you xo
  8. Update after subcision 3: im currently 2 weeks post my third subcision, and I can't believe how improved my skin looks. I was not expecting such a difference this time, so I'm going to wait to take pictures until I'm sure all swelling is down and the results are permanent. After the procedure, a couple of scars pretty much went right back to where they were, but this time I had quite a few hematomas (lumps) under some scars my doctor subcised, and those scars improved the most, so I really thin
  9. Thanks, guys! Some days are better than others, and some pictures are better than others, too. My scars are all definitely still present, just less so. As far as the suction device, at first I bought a hand held vacuum but that seemed to not be strong enough. My second subcision I used the nozzle on the regular vaccum and just put my fingers between my face and the nozzle to keep from bruising, but the suction was much stronger and I think that worked better.
  10. I guess my best tips are to remember that all of us have different skin that will respond differently to the subcision. I expected bruising and swelling, but I had very little of either; instead, I got a scab at every needle insertion point that left me with hyper pigmentation for about a month. Everyone was saying bruising is good, so I was worried, but the nurse said my results were great. The iPhone pictures aren't perfect depictions because that's only in one light looking almost directly at
  11. I'm going for my third and hopefully final subcision next month. My dr held had a light directly above my head and tilted my face to mark all of my scars. My scars are better than they originally were, and I know they will never be gone, but I'd like to try for more improvement. I'm going to see what my dr suggests as far as future treatments
  12. I dermarolled prior to getting subcision and the results were pretty subpar. I've dermarolled twice since getting subcision and the results are much more obvious. I think once the scars have been lifted and are shallower, the dermaroller is more useful (at least at the level I use which is 1mm). I know someone who dermarolls at home with a 2mm roller and he has been able to greatly improve his rolling scars with just that alone. No I have no plans to get laser! It is so expensive and I've a
  13. In November 2015 I had a subcision performed by Dr. Morganroth in Mountain View, CA (Bay Area). I had a second subcision performed 4 weeks later in December 2015. The picture I attached shows before then 3.5 weeks after the second subcision. I have another thread you can look at where I documented the process starting with the first subcision. http://www.acne.org/messageboard/topic/354675-post-subcision-results-wpicture/?page=1 questions I've been asked: how I cleared my skin: Yaz birth cont
  14. Swelling is gone. It's gone after about a week. Microswelling may last a little longer. After my first subcision, my dr. said my scars had improved 15-40%. It was definitely worth it to get it done twice. It made a big difference
