    Acne Scar Treatment

    Hard to put a number to it but it's definitely better than before. I had 26 scars before, now I have 8 that still need (more) correction. So I would say perhaps ((26-8)/26)*100%? I plan to get another subcision early next year.

    I had my second subcision in May and haven't had anything done since then

    Weeping Cystic Wound

    In my experience, such wounds have pus inside. Have you considered compressing with saline water? I would heat water and dissolve some salt in it. Next, I would soak cotton pads in it and compress for about 30 minutes, putting the cotton wool to the cyst till it cools down, and then repeat. This helps the pus to localize and rise to the top, thus helping the infection heal faster. I have also found retin A to be very useful in bringing infections to the surface.

    There's a new indentation I see, like a linear scar, possibly a nokor entry point scar. Is there a chance this may resolve itself or something I can do to get it resolved at this stage? It's been ten days since subcision. Also, when can I start micro needling? Thank you

    Acne Scar Treatment

    Thank you. I didn't have much bruising till yesterday. Things had started turning yellow in fact. I think I slightly overdid the suction last evening (about four passes 4 seconds each)other and have cupping marks as well as bruising. Some of the deeper scars have started to get re-depressed thought I *think* to a shallower extent. I don't feel any hard lumps under my skin yet.

    My face is blue and black and its been six days! I believe its because of the suctioning.

    Is it possible that I may end up getting hypertrophic scars?

    I started suction today, using a Chinese cupping set that I bought of Amazon. I have suctioned the subcised areas, and held the suction pump up to a count of ten. As expected, the area immediately became dark due to a rush of blood. Suctioning was not uncomfortable at all. I intend to do this everyday. The chicken pox scar on my forehead looks quite the same even after the subcision. Same goes for the deepest icepick scar next to my nose. The doctor did not subcise the other icepick scars.

    I got my first subcision done today. The doctor came in and marked my 40 worst scars. He took my opinion on if I agreed with his idea of my worst scars, something that I really appreciate. Then the nurse injected the areas to be subcised with Lidocaine. I think she had to go get an extra bottle because she had to inject me so many times. Perhaps I am too sensitive? She was really nice and asked me if I was doing okay. I asked the nurse if I could take Advil for pain after. She said that Advil ac

     @beautifulambition @Petsmethank you very much for your replies. I have tried to upload better photos. Hope these are more helpful. How much time do you think I should allow between two subcisions?

    Acne Scar Treatment

    Hello everyone, Introduction: I am a 27 year old female. The first zit appeared on my face when I was eleven. Since then it has been a continuous battle. I have seen good and bad days. While a doctor had advised me to take Accutane to knock it out for good, I decided against it given the side effects. Retina - A (0.025%), Clindamycin and general avoidance of dairy products seems to be keeping things somewhat under control (touchwood, I am going to say that a lot). I have some acne scars that ar
