  1. Well it might be around 10k because she had rhinoplasty done, the treatments done for her scars would be at most 4k, that is not too bad. The improvement on her scars is huge, perhaps for other people it is not but personally her scars looked on the severe side in comparison to mine, keep in mind this is just one month post-op she still has months of improvments to go and so far so good. i think it worthed, i see improvement and i give thumbs up for co2, but i think that 10k is a lot of money.

  3. I know, I pm'ed her to ask her how it was she had both co2 and dermabrasion seems pretty abrasive, but hey anything to remove scars forever would be fine by me.
  4. This lady had pretty bad scarring on her cheeks and now they are hardly noticable. She has fat transfers, dermabrasion, and CO2. Just goes to show to get rid of scars you have to go hard. Pictures
  5. How can it be in your experience have you had all of said treatments done? It is not the removal of the top skin that does it it is the heat caused by treatments like TCA nad laser resurfacing that may cause enlarged pores. The best treatment would be dermabrasion it will not reduce natural pore size but since it removes a top layer it will reduce the size of pores stretched by age and pimples i.e. scarred and enlarged pores. Of all treatments though it seemes the scariest dermabrasion ha
  6. where did you read the base might be larger? I honestly believe that the best treatment for pitted scras and en;larged pores is dermabrasion. Though it might be hard finding a good doctor the complications are the lowest regarding pigment/discoloration, scarring and prolongned redness. I myself have a few scars shallow and a few scars that look like enlarged pores and I am planning on getting dermabrasion done as soon as my school semester is over.

  8. How am I not looking hard enough those are one set of pics. I also want to see the after treatment pictures you know the rawness. It may be not as popular but, that is because of the healing time. There was only one bad review and that was because of the process not results. I strongly believe that unless you have only shallow scars dermabrasion and co2 laser resurfacing is best. What do you care if the fraxel repair goes deeper? no amount of collagen production is going to fill in enlarged
  9. Actually thats the only picture I have ever seen of dermabrasion, but I wanted to see dermabrasion befoer and afters done for scarring.
  10. I was wondering if anyone had pictures or sites where they show before and after pictures. I mean real dermabrasion not micro. I have been searching but I can not find anything.
  11. Why when doint treatment like lasers and fraxel is dark skin and asian skin a problem? I understand dark skin may have pigment complications but what about asian skin? whats the worry?
  12. I would have to disagree with the notion that peels are better. What peels will do is perhaps make them shallower depending on strength but they will not fill them in. A laser like fraxel would be much better in rejuvenating skin and inducing collagen production. I am not to familiar with pixel but, I have not heard great success stories from it. I think a few strong fraxel treatments would be very beneficial especially for the ones on your chin. You will probably catch some flack from people
  13. Well I do not think any treatement will shrink them permanently but, what a treatment like CO2 or fraxel does is rejuvenate the skin and take the pores back to where it was years ago depending on the strength. So my conclusion is that if it reduces pore size to where they were before age and access oil stretched them a very low dose of accutane will shrink oil glands and inturn shrink pores or keep them where they are by controlling oil production.
  14. I was thinking about different treatments for scars and pore size and got to thinking. For the most part laser tratemts are best for scars but, as a side result many peoples pores reduce in size due to the tightening and growth/rejuvenation of new skin. So I was thinking if one has fraxel or C02 done and then waits 3 months to be fully healed would taking a micro dose of accutane (0.5-1.00 gram) shrink the pores even more or keep them as they are after treatment? I would think it would be great,
