  1. My doc referred me to Dr. Markus because she has worked with him and he has been working with lasers for a number of years. Can you please tell me who will be performing the procedure?? do they have any b4 and after pictures in their office??? Is 600 for the whole face?? What type of fraxel machine will it be??? I am asian too (yellowish undertone). HOw much improvement did they tell you to expect with 5 treatments??
  2. How much did the baylor clinic qoute you for full face fraxel because thats the doctor that my derm referred me to????
  3. does it have to be 3 weeks after punch float??? Why can't you have all the punch float you need then save some more $$$ then do dermabrasion???? that would take like 6more months to save $$$.... is that possible???
  4. Can this be done in any skin color or is it suited only for fair skin??? How much does it cost???
  5. how was the punch flost procedure done?? does the dr. do it on clustered ice pick scars???? the cluster is about a quarter in size. or is this better if it is excised???
  6. how much does dr. Y charge for punch float??? I have tiny icepick scars about 1mm which look like enlarged pores clustered from the base of my nose. Each cluster of icepick from e/ cheek is about the size of a quarter. I know dermabrasion will not do any good for these icepick so i wanted dr. y to punch float. I also have scars which are clustered on each of my temple like the icepick from the base of my nose and some boxcar. The cluster of scars on my temple is about the size of a dime. I don't
  7. Poe your scar didn't look that bad before. Who makes the decision about the punch float???? I don't have a lot of money but want this done right the first time and I will do as many punch floats to get optimum results. I don't want to spend $4500 + $4500 + hotel= more than $10,000. Thats 2 years of tuition. Were your scars deep or wide????
  8. I know POE. I am asian and i have been to the derm and told me I am the best candidate for the peel. I feel bad it did nothing for you. I had a different peel b4 and it hurt. I went to have laser done and it didn't do a damn thing for $300 bucks. I am in Houston TX and live pretty close to LA. I am a bit reluctant to make an appointment now because I have to go to school january (Nursing). I have to have an interview and all of that crap. Take the entrance test and other stuff. Take CPR class an
  9. Do u think Dr. Y will excise some skin out and stitch it back it so you will have optimum improvement after dermabrasion. even though your scarring is not severe but they are clustered around the cheeks to the base of the nose. because I don't want anymore invasive procedure after the dermabrasion. I want the optimum results because the price is pretty steep. I rather spend $200 more for excision than paying another $1500-4500 for a touchup. Plus it takes time to heal. I have gone through a lot.
  10. Poe you said you tried obagi blue peel for the face. did you notice any difference on hypertrophic scarring??? I am asian and they said I am a good candidate for it. I won't do it on the face though. I will probably do it on my back to even out the color and with the hypertrophic scarring.
  11. how do you know that you need excision?? I have 1mm ice pick scars. the biggest one i have is 2mm.....I am not sure if i can do it during december. I still haven't gotten my school schedule.
  12. I went to Dr. Friedman in Houston and it wasn't worth it. The guy didn't know what he was doing. I had some scars on my back but he didn't know what they were so he kept poking it with a needle to see if he can extract some fluid. He didn't know they were hypertrohic scars. I didn't know if that was that doctor. I think it was a guy doing his residency.
  13. Does Dr. Y perform other procedure to reduce scarring besides dermabrasion??? I want that for my face but I also have scarring on my back (small raised white circular scars). I don't think dermabrasion is good around the shoulder area. I do not trust lasers because I had it done once without any improvement . I might be able to tolerate a Chemical peel. I had it done once and it hurts . If i could get my school schedule down i would make an appointment. Consultation in November (Thnx giving Br
