  1. Thank you! Would Retin-A cream be too harsh to use and maybe interfere with the healing? Should I just stick to vitamin C serum and niacinamide?
  2. It's been 9 days since I removed the sutures and I'd like to make a quick update. So far everything have gone well. No complications and no enlargement of any of my scars. There's still A LOT of swelling and redness going on. I've been taping the scars with silicone sheets and will continue to do so for the next couple of months. After that I'll probably do laser. I will upload pictures so you can see the progress. The picture above is right after stitch removal. The picture below is from
  3. Today I had the sutures removed and the scars look much better. One looks like a thin line and the other one is barely noticeable. I took a picture of the scar on the left side of my face. There's still a lot of swelling going on but so far I like the results.
  4. So today one of the pieces of tape got loose to the point of falling off so I gently removed it and replaced it with a new one. I decided to take a quick photo to share with you. I think it have healed good. Hopefully it will turn out like the scar above it.
  5. I just wanted to make an update. I just got a re-excision done on two scars. On one scar I got two understitches and three overstitches, and on another I got two under and five over. It took approximately half an hour. The stitches will be removed in a week. I've been thinking a little about the scars that turned out worse and I believe it was mostly my fault. First of all, I didn't leave my scars alone. I removed the tape a bit too early because I was curious about what it looked l

The scars did bother me but not to the extent where it made me insecure. I just wanted to get rid of them. I do feel like it's an improvement, at least on one of the scars. The other ones I will get re-excised. I have uploaded a picture of my right side. There's still a little swelling left but other than that the scars have healed.
  7. Thank you! That's strange. Can you see the pictures now? I updated the first post. Anyway, I'm not sure about what kind of scars I had but I believe they're boxcar scars.
  8. On 18/3 I had scalpel excision done on 3 acne scars. Since there are very few threads about this particular procedure, especially with photos, I decided to create one and will update it as often as I can. Some backstory I got sudden acne on my cheeks approximately 5 years ago, that left me with 3 indented scars. I've tried numerous treatments – microneedling, TCA cross, spot dermabrasion, one session of laser spot treatment and punch excision once with a 1 mm round scalpel, no
