  1. Lol I agree with you on this each doctor sells his own method. Hence it is important to go a doctor that have a good collection of tools.
  2. Is rf microneedling really better in treating all type of acne scars. I mostly see negative opinions or not desired outcome from this. I believe settings used matters as depth, energy and heat time can make big difference in output. Not sure if people who had this treatment were not treated with the right settings or they didn’t do enough treatments. I am trying to find something that can lift tiny ice picks, enlarged pores and medium to shallow boxcar scars?
  3. Camera enlarges everything that you see the correct picture is from an arm distance also the oiliness can make scar look worse your scars are not bad you just need some filler and subcision mostly they do fillers for those temple scars
  4. This is very weird thing I am suffering for a long time. All I remember is I used to play a lot of time in the sun during my teen years and maybe it caused me to be darker on the face side. I am not trying to be white but the issue is there is clearly a color mismatch between my body and face. I would say I am Fitzpatrick 2 or 3 on the body but on the face I am 4 or 5. is this a medical condition I am suffering, because this is what I can remember from the puberty time. can peels resto

  6. @Sirius Lee can you help this person with a treatment plan based on your knowledge. also one thing I would say is start early and don’t let doctors rip you off. As it could take a year or two to get satisfied or happy with the results, if it means working two jobs to get funding for the treatment do it. If you start later then there is the risk of skin being not in its prime condition of healing also your life is mostly when you are young so you have to have quality time now. By the time yo
  7. You need more subcision also there is hyperpigmentation that needs to be taken care of. Your scars are noticeable due to the color and contour(edges of the scar). To fix color you need to do chemical peels or use hydroquinone and sun protection. For edges of the scar you do fully ablative laser on the scar edges. Fully ablative means it removes the complete surface of the skin wherever the laser is done. You can do filler as well when the scar surface is very close to normal. if I were you
  8. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3996784/ The study used *subcision once at the start of treatment *microneedling 1.5 mm monthly for a total of 6 sessions * tca peel 15 percent monthly *tretinoin 0.05 percent the results are very impressive based on the study. Please open the study to see before and after pictures.
  9. Thanks Amanda for your input on this. How many sessions of laser had you done and the depth used by doctor?
  10. I have noticed that the skin has very sunken appearance after laser. Immediately it is plumped for 9 days but at 2 weeks it starts to look sunken in area even where there were no scars, it mean they don’t look like scars but looks slightly sunken as if there is collagen loss FYI I had erbium ablative laser and some areas with full ablative laser
  11. You need subcision treatment these are rolling scars, it’s relatively inexpensive to do.
  12. Can anyone share their knowledge on which laser works better in fading punch excision lines post excision. I know a Med spa who is offering laser sessions which is fractional ablative will that work or should we go with fully ablative laser?
  13. Hi seraph no matter what kind of scarring you need to understand first what kind of scarring you have. Believe me I also felt the same that my scars are stubborn but it was always trying the right treatment for the right scar. It will not become perfect like glass skin. But it will become really unnoticeable. So if you can put on some pictures other people can let us know what treatments will work. Again when people do lasers or peels or rf does not work they really need to tell the details
  14. You have very minimal to no scarring. You can probably try spot ablative laser treatment for the minimal scarring you have and see or you can just use fillers
  15. there is a fade bright serum that you can use for hyperpigmentation
  16. Barely bad, you mostly have slight rolling scars on selected areas.
  17. You have boxcar, few ice picks and little rolling scars.You need subcision, rf and cross maybe fillers at the end when the pits have lifted to surface level. all the best
  18. You can look into spot subcision and rf needling
  19. Since you have very shallow scarring you could expect excellent results. But again I can’t guarantee. This what’s known from the type of scarring you have and the improvement. Go in expecting nothing and you will always be happy. All we can in life is to give our best shot, outcome is not in our control.
  20. Lighting always make it look worse than it actually is. You can go for microonedling or rf micro needling looks more like a rolling hence subcision. It doesn’t have a huge atrophy hence it is shallow but I have seen people with subcision get excellent results for these scars and they are permanent. You always can try other modalities but better to go with a proven track record. You just need spot subcision by the way should be cheaper. You don’t need fillers specifically but can give you in
  21. But IMO it’s so shallow that even if you don’t do anything about it it’s fine. But I understand it effects you, so go for it. Btw you are pretty!
  22. yes, I mean normal skin. Spot Subcision should start to give you long term results and fillers would start to give immediate results. Killing two birds with the same stone.
  23. I believe fillers can easily address this and maybe spot subcision. The best way is to know about fillers, is to stretch the skin and see if it flattens or look normal skin. Fillers will solve the issue.
  24. Well it’s not 100 percent science, I had a lump as well after 1st subcision, it took some time and after 2nd subcision it got better, I guess the blood clots in that area either it will take time or another subcision to break it up.
  25. i think you are fine, these lumps will go away with time. If not, these will be corrected when he does the next subcision. Did he use nokor or cannula? I know nokor causes lumps more frequently..
