  1. I went to Dr. Nicole Schrader in Princeton for acne scar excision ($550). It was fast and almost painless. I was very pleased. She removed 4 scars that I have been in anguish over for years. I went about 6 months ago to Dr. Rappaport. He wanted to use different procedures to minimize. I had Infini (microneedling) OUCH!, and Fraxel and subscision. I only saw worse changes from these treatments. I never even went back to him for a follow up. It was a waste of money. ($1800) They numbed my
  2. I am Asian (23) studying in the Netherlands now. I did some research and want to get derma fillers (especially Bellafill)(oh i just read that its banned in Europe..:( ) or punch excision surgery for a depressed box scar on my face. I couldn't find any information about it in the Netherlands, only some plastic surgery clinics provide temporary fillers for treating scars. Any recommendations? (Belgium and Germany could also be on my list if necessary, but no UK since I need a visa for it)

  4. I had chicken pox last year and now have 15 holes on my face. I have done a lot of intensive research on excision as I have had restylane, C02, Non-ablative laser and although much improved, I can see I will always have a huge hole on my forehead which is always going to be visible in certain lighting. Hence, I really want to get this and another on my cheek just under my eye next to my nose, excised. I found this study http://www.buffalo.edu/news/releases/2006/08/8127.html and many
  5. I'm new to this guys so I hope I'm posting this in the right place, and if I'm not I'm so sorry! I'm looking for any & all recommendations from those who've had good scar treatment results from doctors in NY or surrounding areas. After much research, I think the best bet for my deep boxcar scars is subscision and/or excision followed by fillers. I'm not opposed to looking at other things. But does anyone know of doctors who do this in the tri state area (ny, nj, ct). As a side quest
  6. Hi, I am a new member to Acne.org and would like to introduce myself. i am at young adult female living in the SW U.S., very out going, easy, laid back and grateful that i have few friends whom i hang out with that seem to dont mind my scars. I am looking for someone in the SouthWestern U.S. who has performed subcision successfully on deep box/pitted scars as well as rolling scars...mainly along my temples and cheeks to my jaw. Anyone who has had this done, are you satisfied with the re
  7. Hi everyone, long time lurker here. I've never had great skin, and am prone to cystic acne because of hormones. During my last pregnancy I got a cyst on my cheek that didn't go away. When it did it left an awful textured scar, the kind that looks awful under harsh lighting because of the edges. So, I went to a PS to excise the area (and two pitted scars next to the cyst scar) I hope documenting my journey will be helpful to others. I'm one week post-op now. I'm a bit concerned that the middle of
  8. As a result of accidentally knocking off three large pustules on my nose (while doing things like brushing my hair away or putting on my glasses) I've been graced with three horridly obvious scars on my nose. They are in a line; one icepick on the tip, and two moderately deep boxcars above them. The boxcars are also quite dark looking (pih?).They look horrendous and I need to get rid of them asap. My acne is under control now (thanks antibiotics), by the way. What options are available for
