  1. Hello everyone. I have been looking all over it seems for excision success stories for depressed scars but it doesn't seem like there's much info out there. I have searched this forum but it seems that ones who had it post they did and then post a week or so later but then you hear nothing more from them. Assume theyre ok now? I am so afraid I know i will have to have surgery on my nose. Do the docs really make you wait up to a year before correction? Any info would be most appreciated.
  2. Hey friends! Haven't been on the site in a while but had a few questions I'd like to ask the community. I am wanting to pursue punch excision or just general excision for a handful of scars. I wanted to know about your experiences as well as possibly some doctors in the midwest. I've traveled to Chicago for a series of treatments of another type and won't go back. I know there is a specialist in Seattle (Dr. Philip Young) that seems enticing but if I can save some money by staying in the midwest
  3. I am thinking about getting a punch excision for a very large pore on the side of my face, under my eye and to the left of my nose. Would it be better NOT to get any microneedling done with a dermaroller before a punch excision was done as a means of keeping the raised walls around the large pore more precise as to give the plastic surgeon a better chance of a successful surgery? Or, would it not really matter?
  4. Are two punch excisions sometimes needed to remove a dilated pore or acne scar? I was very happy with the result so far. However, now that it's healing I see that some of the scarred pore remains. Will duplicate punch excisions cause more damage than good?
  5. Hello everyone, I have been lurking the forums for quite some time as I used to have pretty bad facial acne until some years ago when accutane finally fixed the problem. The acne, and oily skin, was mostly concentrated in the area on and around my nose, Unfortunately, I am now left with an ice pick scar not far from the center of my nose (slightly to the right side). I must probably add that this scar is not a typical ice pick scar but rather a very enlarged/scarred pore, which also stretches
  6. Hello all - I am writing for some advice on my scarring and to determine if you all think I would be a good candidate for subcision. I am 37 and at age 25 I did punch floats and full-face dermabrasion by one of the best doctors in the world for these procedures. My results were mixed. I had something like 28 punch floats or punch excisions. A couple weeks later I underwent a full face dermabrasion (FYI people, it hurt like hell but I'd probably do it again). The right side of my face imp
  7. Hey there acne.org friends! New here, just started getting on here recently and really loved the tight knit and supportive community:) so basically my story is, I have had clear skin since high school had a few problems back then but nothing serious that I worried about. About 5 months ago my mother passed away from her 2 year battle with cancer and it completely devastated me. About a couple weeks after that my face just blew up, I had never had acne just a few pimples here and there so I was r
  8. Hey everyone, new member. Have been a silent follower for a couple months now. Anyway, I guess I'll share my quick story about my nose scar that's depressing the hell out of me... I've never had a a real problem with acne until now. I mainly get it on my forehead with the occasional pimple on the nose or cheek. Anyway...Originally I had a small icepick scar, probably the size of a pin on my nose from picking a pimple. Tiny! You couldn't even see it unless it you were all up in my face! At first
