  1. I need help. It’s all around my cheeks, down the jawline. I have tried topicals but it didnt work, since its not superficial.

  5. Hello all, i had 2 subcision treatments, one of them left me with a raised scar. I guess I was not a good candidate. I am now waiting to see a bew doctor who can hopefully help me make it go away. I had 2 fraxel treatments and 1 co2. I noticed that after my 3rd laser treatment, which was the co2 that was done at the same time with my second subcision, so as I stsarted healing my cheeks started losing collagen.

  6. Thank you everyone for the replies. I have one more laser treatment and next time I see my doctor I will definitely discuss what else we can do about the lumps. I appreciate the help so much.

I have 2 lumps on the left side of my face and one on my right. Juat won't go away. What else can I try? it is really sad to go through this procedure to make my face more presentable and then end up with lumps!! Anybody has advice on what else I can do? The doctor does not seem worried. But I would like these lumps gone... and soo
