  2. Here's another set of punch-related pics. A bit graphic. http://www.skincancerinfo.com/sectionf/11p.html
  3. I posted about punches in another thread. This should give you a basic idea about how they can be used. http://www.acne.org/messageboard/index.php...t=20&p=440239
  4. I'm confused. If you excise, graft or float a scar so that it heals flush with the skin and then you subsequently abrade the whole area, shouldn't you have a dramatic improvement? I mean, an excised scar is gone, right? Not there anymore, replaced with a fine line. My sister's best friend had several large moles excised from her face by a plastic surgeon. The area was then dermabraded and now you can't even tell there was anything there. I guess different people heal in different ways.
  5. Isn't this thread about punch excision?
  6. Here is a helpful animation. I'm a bit confused about the end though, I've never heard of an excision being finished with a BAND AID!! It stands to reason that you'd stitch a gaping wound up, right? Whatever, just ignore the band aid bit and you'll be fine.
  7. I found some punch biopsy pics which depict what a punch excison actually looks like, keeping in mind that the punch used in ice pick removal is smaller. Other than that it's pretty much the same, just imagine that the mole is an ice-pick scar.
  8. Larger excisions are more prone to caving in I believe.
  9. Punches are available in the following sizes: 0.5mm, 0.75mm, 1.0mm, 1.25mm, 1.5mm, 2.0mm, 2.5mm, 3.0mm, 3.5mm, 4.0mm, 5.0mm, 6.0mm and 8.0mm.
  10. Dermatologists don't have anywhere near the experience in carefully opening a wound and then sealing it. And the way a wound heals determines what kind of scar will be left.
