    Combo Treatment: Subsicion + Fraxel + Re-Cell

    Dear All, I am a bit overwhelmed by reading all the last comments on here, I had not logged on for a couple of months and It is very moving to see how documenting my journey has given hope to many of you. That really makes me really happy. Apologies for not being in touch recently, life has turned a bit hectic lately. I have lots of private messages and I will be responding to those in the coming days. If I dissapear again for a while please be patient, I will always come back. In terms of an update, I had PRP back in November as I had previously mentioned and I had fraxel laser again over the Xmas period. The texture of my skin has improved further but I the improvement of the depth of the scar wasnt as great as before. I think the reason for these is two fold: a) I only had Fraxel this time around and didnt combine it with ReCell or Subcision; this reafirms to me that the magical thing that did it for me was the combination treatment as described at the very beginning of this thread. and b) I had Fraxel at only 40% intensity this time (half of what I had the first time). However, some people do notice improvement, I guess because I see myself in the mirror everyday and I am so perfectionist I struggle to se a dramatic improvement. Having said that, when Dr Khan took the VISIA photos again and we compared to the very first photo I was completely speechless. As I always said, this is a journey. Dr Khan also told me that some of you have visited and has asked him to see him, I went to see him today to discuss possible future treatments (I do want to take my skin to 100% if possible) and I told him that if any that goes to see him want to meet me, I am happy to come and see you guys. He promised me to take your numbers for me and I will be in touch. Right! now I will check some of the private messages... Best wishes for you all Ernesto

    Combo Treatment: Subsicion + Fraxel + Re-Cell

    Hi Ernesto Just wondering what "PRP" means Look it up on this forum. It stands for PLATELETS RICH PLASMA. Basically, the Dr takes a sample of your blood and separate and concentrate the growth factors that are contained in your own blood and then inject that back into the scar tissue which trigger a scar regeneration and healing process. PRP is proven to work great in acne scaring and also in other type of problems such as bone repain, tendoditis, etc.

    Combo Treatment: Subsicion + Fraxel + Re-Cell

    Is the PRP treatment injections? If so would there be any downside to getting it done before the damage the lasers will cause? I will be getting this done for sure when my FALL semester is over and since the treatment is not offered in the USA I will be traveling to DR.Kahn. Dr Khan suggest to have PRP 6 weeks before the laser and also straigt after. He argues that the growth factors on the PRP injections will prepare the skin for the laser damage and help it heal and enhance the healing process afterwards Let me know if you are travelling to London to see Dr Khan, happy to meet you while you are here!

    Combo Treatment: Subsicion + Fraxel + Re-Cell

    Hi Everyone, Just touching base with all of you again and bringing some news: I visited the Dr a couple of weeks back to check progress and plan next steps. I told him I wanted to go through the whole thing again aiming to get as close to perfection as possible. He suggested to do PRP 6 weeks before the Fraxel and right after the Fraxel this time round, which I will do. So, I have booked the PRP for November 12th and 6 weeks later (around Xmas time again) to go again through teh Fraxel Repair. Thanks to all of you that have sent me private messages, I am glad to be of help and habe brought hope to many of you. Remember: You need to believe is possible and then take action to make it happen. Keep looking for the solution even if something didnt work for you before. Believing and a positive attitude is what we need.

    Combo Treatment: Subsicion + Fraxel + Re-Cell

    Hey Buddy No, I didnt suffer of any hyperpigmentation or any other side effects, but I completely understand where you are coming from. In London ,I visited 5 other Doctors before visiting Dr Khan and they all refused to carry out laser treatment on me due to my skin type. It was only Dr Khan who said that he would be comfortable carrying out the treatment, but he did warned me of the risks, but at the same time he said he would ensure all measures would be taken to reduce the risk. So, I went onto a treatment to prevent hyper pigmentation for 3 weeks prior to the Fraxel (Pigmanorm). I also kept myself in complete darknes for 2 weeks after the laser and after that with very limited exposure to sunlight wearing always SPF50. Not sure if I was lucky of Dr Khan really cracked the code with the Pigmanorm, the post treatment care and the ReCell.

    Combo Treatment: Subsicion + Fraxel + Re-Cell

    Hi, Dr Khan has both lasers. He is very experienced in using laser technology. So, to answer your question: I had Fraxel Re:Pair. I found him by looking up doctors on the Fraxel website.
  11. Hi All, As many of you know, I also have a thread on which I have documented in detail my journey with Dr Khan. For those of you that dont know the story, is simple: I had severe scaring all over my face as the result of ACNE and on December 2009 I had a combination of treatments with Dr Khan. 8 months later I can state that my overall improvement is of 75% and that I am very pleased with the results, to such a extend that I will even repeat it all over again this December with the adittion of PRP before that. I am aiming at 100% improvement (if such a thing exists!). You can see all my before and after photos and all the details of my journey on here: http://www.acne.org/messageboard/Combo-Tre...77#entry2773477 So, reason why I am writing here today is because I am very dissapointed to see how Faizal's great thread ended up turning into a documentation of an emotional and 'almost-legal battle' against Dr Khan. So I thought I would share with you all my thoughts about this thread and Faizal's experience. As you know Faizal went to Dr Khan and requested Stem Cells treatment on his nose to get rid of a scar that it is NOT the result of acne and is placed above the nose' cartilage. Faizal's thread is great in the sense that it documents his story, the treatment and his photos, but then it turns into the 'legal and emotional issue' of having his money back which I dont think is the objective of this forum. I think lead people to have the misconception that Dr Khan is scammer and that he has never achieved results with anyone, etc etc etc. So, a few things to remember and to put things into perspective: In regards to Faizal: -Faizal's scars are not the result of severe acne. This forum ACNE.ORG is to help those in the search of a solution for acne scaring. So, you should not discard this treatment because it didnt work for him, your scars are probably very different that his. -Faizal's scar is is placed above the nose' cartilage, an area that is particularly difficult to treat because the limited amount of healthy skin that is under the scar and the cartilage (very different that treating cheeks for example). -I also understand that Faizal had TCA Cross prior to the StemCells and as it has been explained to me, this hinders the results of Stem Cells treatments. -I think Faizal went to Dr Khan with the expectation of finding a 'Panacea' or solution that in one day alone would get rid of his scar completely. I think we all here know that scar repair is a difficult matter, it is a journey and it takes a combination of treatments and a strong commitment to yourself. Faizal didnt get the 80% results he expected with just ONE (1) alone treatment if such a thing existed none of us would be here! we would all have perfect skin!... this is a journey people. In regards to Stem Cells -Stem Cells is a newly discovered treatment that is still undergoing development. -Stem Cells treatments come in different sizes, packages and colours! (stem cells combined with fat, stem cells cultivated for a while in a lab and then injected back, etc... these treatments are different, you shouldnt rule stem cells out completely because this one in particular didnt work in that particular type of scar). There are also cases of very successful use of stem cells! -The fact Stem Cells didnt work on Faizal doesnt mean that it wouldnt work in other types of scars, skin or other people. I, personally, increased further my results by having Stem Cells. In regards to Dr Khan: -I regard Dr Khan as a highly professional individual and someone who has been specially warm, genuine and honest with me all along. I have trusted him and I have followed his recommendations and advise thoroughly as indicated and I have obtained fantastic and astonishing results. I think is unfair people judge him only based on what Faizal has to say. -Dr Khan is committed to get results with his patients and he has proven this to me by calling me regularly after my treatment and by suggesting further steps constantly. In Faizal’s case, Dr Khan even offered Faizal FREE treatments and Faizal declined. -If Dr Khan was a scammer he wouldnt have the client base and reputation he has in Harley Street in London. Stories like Faizal’s would be over the papers in a regular basis and that is not the case. I want to state here that my experience with Dr Khan, as well as that of other three people on this forum (ie. ICareToHelp and a few other that dont want to be mentioned) have been great and I am extremely pleased with the astonishing results I obtained from my treatment with Dr Khan. I am just happen to be the only one brave enough to share my story with you, including all my photos. This is not a post to defend Dr Khan, but given that this thread became all about him, I thought I would also share my experience, at the end of the day this is what forums are for! ... I just find sad how he can be put down this way, when he has been the man that helped me to change my life around, therefore I am grateful!.. but ultimately what I want to say with this is that you shouldnt be discouraged by this thread of going to see Dr Khan or any other Dr that is carrying out StemCells treatment. My improvement is the result of a combination of great treatments (Fraxel, ReCell, StemCells) in a very specific type of scars. I am not here to promote Dr Khan's business whatsoever, I could have documented my story in my thread without mentioning his name, it doesnt really make a difference to me at all, I still have my results and I could have still published my photos.. I have done this for you guys and to help those in the search of a solution, many of you insisted on me revealing the name of my Dr and that is what I did. Bottomline here is: You must believe you can get results, you must combine treatments and be patient, this is a journey that you need to do with a professional and experienced doctor that you trust, whoever that may be and depending on where you are (the US, Asia, etc). Regards to everybody ernestoria

    Ohhh and by the way.... For some of you that have been reading Faizal's thread on his Stem Cells Treatment with Dr Khan, just a couple of warnings: As you know Faizal went to Dr Khan and requested Stem Cells treatment on his nose to get rid of a scar that it is NOT the result of acne and is placed above the nose' cartilage. Faizal didnt get the 80% results he expected with just ONE (1) alone treatment and he then went on to demand money back from Dr Khan and it seems things got a bit difficult between them. Faizal's thread is great in the sense that it documents his story, the treatment and his photos, but then it turns into the 'legal and emotional issue' of having his money back which I dont think is the objective of this forum. What I want to say with this is that you shouldnt be discouraged by his post to see Dr Khan or any other Dr that is carrying out StemCells treatment. My improvement is the result of a combination of great treatments (Fraxel, ReCell, StemCells) in a very specific type of scars.

I have done this for you guys and to help those in the search of a solution, many of you insisted on me revealing the name of my Dr and that is what I did. I want to close this by saying that I regard Dr Khan as a highly professional individual and someone who has been specially warm, genuine and honest with me all along. I have trusted and I have followed his recommendations as indicated and I have obtained fantastic results and I will continue my further treatments with him. Bottomline here is: You must believe you can get results, you must combine treatments and be patient, this is a journey that you need to do with a professional and experienced doctor that you trust, whereever you are (the US, Asia, etc).

    Combo Treatment: Subsicion + Fraxel + Re-Cell

    Hi guys, So, here I go... I tried to make as much space as possible without having to remove the old pics and the after treatment pics because I think that is what most people would like to see. So, I have room for 2 final pics which I took last week. Once again, to kill all negative comments. YES, I HAD ABOUT 75% improvement overall as a result of combining treatments: Subcision, Fraxel and ReCell and Stem Cells 3 months later. Yes, initially I had about 90% improvement but after 8 months all micro-swelling has subsided and what you see is what I was left with. It's about 75% improvement overall. Was it worthy? of course it was!!! I am very very pleased.. my life has changed so much!!! Note that back then before the treatment many doctors told me the max I could get was 30% improvement from Fraxel. I went ahead happy to get 30% as I thought that would be a massive improvement for me anyway.. anything would help my bad scaring, but in order to take it further and following recommendations from Dr Khan I also did Subcision, ReCell and Stem Cells in combination and I got 75% in total. I am very very pleased! FOR THOSE NEGATIVE AND SKEPTICAL GUYS OUT THERE: I am real and not an hoax, I just happen to be a 31 years old professional guy that works as a Management Consultant and also have a busy life. So, sorry for not posting pics immediately after you demanded. If I was an hoax, how can I create so many pics in so many different scenarios, including the ones after treatment when I look like I was run over by a truck!!!??? LOL Some of you guys are hilarious, negative and just don't let yourselves believe. I doubt that without faith and believe you would ever get any results. I think only 3 or 4 people on this forum have actually uploaded so many pics before and after, the majority of you all dont even have an avatar. I am exposing myself like this for your benefit and to help other people in the same boat as me and what I get from some is recrimination and even people doubting that I am real! ... I mean... seriously guys, get a life! Reason why I took so much time to document my story at the beginning and not now is because as you can probably imagine, after the treatment I was at home for 3 weeks doing nothing! very different to the situation today! Anyway, here are some new pics, but before that I wanted to point out that I will be doing another treatment in December, exactly a year after my first one. I have visited Dr Khan again to request another Fraxel so I can take the skin to perfection (or as good as it gets), he suggested also doing PRP before that and a combination with subcision again. So, that it is what I will do. I will the update with results. Cant wait! Pics:

    Hi, thanks for your messages, specially all the lovely private messages. I am glad to hear that for some people my thread, time and effort have been worthy. I think I know now how to optimise my pic storage space on here. Tonight when I get back home I will delete some of the old pics I have uploaded before to free up some space and will upload the new ones. I have taken them with exactly the same lighting, angle and even time of the day. And as I have always said... "if you dont believe, just call me and come and see me in the flesh and for real". I got results and that what matters to me!
