  1. @totalbeautyaddict simple. I was put off by all the horror stories not only here, also on realself and other forums in my country. my impression from stories of people with acne scarring who got laser was: best case scenario= it did absolutely nothing. worst case scenario=permanent change in texture for the worse/permanent discolouration/volume loss/no change to scarring. I dont recall reading many stories (if any at all) that would say - laser rid me of scars, yayyy! However, Sirius lee ofte
  2. Haha, yeah, I recalled that already several times @Sirius Lee But while majority of my scars are shallow, there are a still fewer deeper rolling ones that the sub helped a bit (the filler did not much). But overall yes, I agree, you were right.
  3. Fair enough. I took pictures under the very same lamp that the first pics in this thread that BA just reposted. Original pics are dated Dec 2016. Since then I had 5 dermapen sessions in the course of 2017. Mid- January 2018 - first subcision. End of February 2018 second sub + Dermapen w PRP + TCA cross. End of March 2018 - TCA cross forehead + filler for cheeks. Here go the pics. In the first rant I complaint that the filler did nothing to my shallow scarrin
  4. @Quadboy Mmm, but the poster mentions in his first post he'd had sub and filler before and the scar didnt respond well ... ((
  5. UPDATE: I feel so disheartened and sad and frustrated at the moment. I had filler to my cheeks feel two days ago. And I am looking into the mirror, I am inspecting my face all the time like a crazy person and I literally cannot see any difference. What I was hoping for was a little bit more subcision before the filler (not necessarily Nokor). The reason is many of my scars on my cheeks were never subcised (a lot lot of shallow boxscarring/icepick). Only the deeper ones were subcised,
  6. SO I just had fillers done in my cheek today. Not sure how I feel about it. No subcision this time since the doc deemed it unnecessary. Fair enough. Some parts look nice and fuller and (almost) leveled out with the rest of my face but some shallower scars which have never been subcised...seem to have stayed. It has been around 10 hours, I am dreading I am having a mild donut effect around some scars. The doctor considered these shallow boscars too shallow for a sub but I feel some subcision e

    @Sirius Lee Infini where I live is reasonably priced. Pretty much the same price as for PRP (less than 300EUR). That wont be an issue. Some others who advised me here think Infini could yield amazing results on forehead. What are the other cost-effective options? Most doctors refused to subcise the scars that bother me there since its too risky for them. Botox without subcision? I might try but am skeptical. Regarding the filler-Infini stimulation Im gonna talk about it elsewhere.

    @Nina22 just finished and send a long PM to you I will comment more on my experience w fillers in my thread not to sidetrack this one

    Hi guys! Would it be reasonable to have Infini done ONLY on the forehead? Why? Still too s*scared of the side effects, I value the fat on my cheeks too much, afraid to lose even a slight bit of it. Also, I have been noticing inceremental results on my cheeks w other treatments. Forehead pretty much 0 response. Also, just had filler in my cheeks (I think it was Juvederm Volbella). The doc discouraged me from needling or even peeling the cheeks until the filler wears off (according to him, shou
  10. Hey! May I ask you where did you have the sculptra injected? Which part of your cheek? your face is looking nice, even tone Most of what I m seeing is not-so-deep ice picks - have you thought about TCA cross for these?
  11. QUESTION: Can you subcise scars in the glabella region? I am reading and hearing conflicting information on this. Chu allegedly said it is too dangerous to subcise in this area (to another poster). (I have one in the frown line area. Chu said it does not seem tethered and so it should respond to needling over time. However, it's been there for almost a decade and I have been needling for couple of years and it is not responding at all so I would love to have it subcised to see if/how it
  12. (I searched for this before starting this topic but didnt find the right answer) So I wanna start using topical tretinoin to tackle my textural problems before starting medium/deep peels later this year. But Retin-A is not available in Europe. Sure, we have prescription topical tretinoin creams, there is one I could get (doctors in family). However the mildest is 0.05% strenghth. I was thinking I better start with 0.025% = safer? The other ingredients in this cream are: alcohol, macrogol 60
  13. wow, how lucky you are to have this dermatologist around and meet them on your first visit. sounds v good;)
  14. @Noa27 thanks for the question, you reminded me of one important thing I wished to clarify here. Odense is easy. You take a train directly from CPH Airport, takes around 1.5 hours to Odense. vvv convenient. Once you re in Odense, you can take a 10min bus to the clinic or grab a cab. I myself stayed in CPH for couple days since I have plenty friends there but it would be 100% doable and convenient to make it in one day. (I doubt that Odense has its own airport, anyway;) So I traveled both t
  15. wait. I'm not following. I never had filler before. Just sub. So Im not "toping-up". Now I wanna filler and it just happens that there's public holiday in 4 weeks and I d like to make use of that, instead of taking days off work.
  16. @beautifulambition ok, thanks. But I thought that you always recommended others to space out treatments more. better than rush it. It wont be only filler but possibly more subcision, too.
  17. Guys, I am having a dilemma - your advice is much needed and appreciated now. I had the "triple treatment" by Prof Chu on 28 February - that is dermapen PRP + su + TCA cross. Not many areas of my face were subcised. I barely have bruises now (day 8) - just yellowish/greenish tint. As for the TCA cross, some scabs/crusts are still on, some seem to be gone. It was my first time so I dont know what is "normal". My point is -- I think I am an OK healer as far as I can say. (Also it is possi
  18. In such case the atrophy would be also where the needle went in, not only in the scar itself imo. I am also one week out from subicison and I am still swollen. Thanks so this swell my entire face is beautifully plump and seemingly almost scarless - beside one scar. I also have one persistent deeper scar that is still visible regardless subicsion, now it seems even deeper, I think thanks to the swelling around. It has been subcised twice. At best I see no improvement, sometimes it see
  19. fair enough, I might have had more fibriosis and resistance with the first case, very likely so actually how do we know this, btw? I mentioned him to Chu, didnt seem to remember him/know who I talk about. mmm.
  20. @Noa27 have you done your sub with Prof Chu? I had my second sub with Chu and on my third day the bruises are yellow already :-O They are fading much more quickly than with the first sub (w Emil) and are just ... smaller... paler.. and no bumps at all. Why? I dont think it is a matter of subcision performed "right" or "wrong" but the steps after the sub itself- Emil just pressed down on the subcised areas with an icepack for like 60 seconds and that was it. Chu, on the other hand, had the n
