  1. This is a really long entry documenting my experience/journey with subcision. Subcision part is in bold. * I've had acne since i was about 13 years old. I'm currently 25 years old and throughout the years I've learned how to minimize my acne to the best of my ability. My father had really bad acne growing up as did I. Experts say that acne has nothing to do with diet, however I tend to disagree. I've lived with it for more than ten years now and it wasn't until recently th
  2. Is it ok to get Vbeam 2-3 days after subcision? Subcision causes blood to pool under the skin so I'm wondering if vbeam will have negative affect on the subcision outcome. My derm think its ok to have vbeam afterwards. Wondering if anyone has done that or heard about it?
  3. I have found a study on subcision, proving that subcision with suction can help it level the surface. Is there anyone here that has done this before? The study also states that it can cause raised scars from this surgery due needling closer to the epidermis. I'm wondering if anyone has experienced this themselves? Here is the study: http://owndoc.com/pdf/therapy-in-treatment-of-atrophic-acne-scars.pdf
  4. So this idea of AFTERCARE came up in another thread. And thanks to @beautifulambition and others for the encouragement to start this thread. Anyway, there appears to be a lot of posters in recent months who have confessed to getting their scars sliced (subcision), poked (microneedling), zapped (laser), or poked and zapped (Infini) as well as burned (all things acid). There's endless debate about what treatment is considered optimal for what types of scar. However, there's not enough dialogue abo
  5. So I have come across this community so many times while looking for ways to treat acne/its scars and now that I started treating the scars , I want to document it here , maybe it'll help someone Anyways I have deep ( really deep ) combination of acne scars , mostly box car scars as you can see below ( I'm taking them in the lighting that shows them the worst ) https://imgur.com/a/aI5wa https://imgur.com/a/k9yPE I plan to undergo 3 sessions of both subcision and TCA cross 29/10/2017 my
  6. Is Juvederm vycross filler safe? Is it pointless since it biodegrades after 12 months? I might combine vycross with subcision, but what is the point if the filler biodegrades? Won't the scar re-appear?
  7. I have visited this informative and honest forum so many times and I thought it is my turn to write to share my experience so far. Currently, my experience of subcision 7 weeks ago is not very positive – at the moment. It seems many people have had good experiences but I do think my old acne scars appear worse and I have some raised nodules. I don’t want to put any one off having treatment as we are all different and things still could work out for me. The main reason I am posting is 2 fold – to
  8. Hi everyone How long should one wait post accutane to consider subcision treatments? I've read many different things on threads within this website, with some people saying to wait 6 months, others 12 months, and others saying it can be done within a couple of months post accutane - with only energy devices (such as lasers) being the thing you have to avoid for a 6+ months post accutane. Any advice would be great. Thanks
  9. Hi all, I am looking into subcision treatments and was wondering if anyone has had good results from anywhere within Sydney, Australia. Any recommendations would be great!!! Also, how long should one wait post accutane to receive subcision treatments? Thanks, hotdog1996
  10. Hello All! Hoping to find some guidance. I have a few old rolling acne scars on my cheeks and have exhausted just about every type of treatment (peels, fraxel, microneedling, fillers, etc). I've been reading about saline subcision and feel it might make an improvement to the type of scars I have. I live in Boston and was hoping someone could recommend a practitioner in my area that performs this procedure. Looking forward to your responses Also, would love to hear about any success stories wi
  11. Hi All, I have went thru two subcision treatments and two TCA cross treatments. The second treatments was 4 months after the first and it has been about 6 months since my last treatment. While i have noticed some results, the scarring on left temple which are mostly icepicks have not seen too much improvement imo. I have micro needled three times with the derminatior. Do you guys think if i keep microneedling, the ice picks will improve? I really dont want to do any more TCA or subcision ca
  12. Hi Guys, My name is jake and I'm new to Acne.org. Basically, my story is like everyone else's. I had great skin all of high school and then one day in college BAM. I broke out with the worst cystic acne of my life. Long story short, I took Accutane for 7 months which helped clear my acne tremendously. But after I got off it, the cysts started to come back. Now I am currently eating a dairy-free diet and use Tazorac cream (.01) and I rarely break out anymore. Now all I have to deal with is my
  13. I am happy to say that the subcision I had last year worked very well on one scar. I also had a laser and prp. On my right cheek I can hardly see the large scar. It was getting worse because I am older. It's much much better! I do still see other scars but they have improved as well. In certain light I see a scar under my eye on my left cheek, but that's under certain light. I wanted to go for the four follow up subcisions but I don't want to deal with my wife nagging me on how vain I am. B
  14. Hello, I've had three rounds of subcision to my combination of ice pick scarring and the wider, shallow scars. The improvement is most noticable in the shallow scars, but you can see the tiny build up of collagen in the ice pick scarring areas where the dermatologist's needle perforated and reorganised the skin. I can't wait to get a hold of a Dermatologist capable of the TCA Cross technique. But how does one go about finding them?? Best regards, -K
  15. Hello. I'm not sure what to make of this.I wonder if you can help. I had subcision 2 weeks ago.Most of the swelling has gone. But there's an area which is hard when I press it (and it hurts).It's under the skin and doesn't stick out. I'm concerned because it's like a lump under the skin.I hope it's not permanent. Any ideas? Many thanks.
  16. I need some advice on post-subcision. I had it done about 7 weeks ago. From what I am reading, some people say that the results are temporary. Well, right now, my scar is no longer depressed. But, it is slightly elevated and it looks kind of unnatural. Will it go down over time or should I go back to the doctor. Would a topical cortizone cream help...or ice each night perhaps? Also, what is my best option to smooth out this area. Like I said, the depression is gone. But now, it looks like
  17. My derm breifly mentioned this to me when I asked about scar treatment a few months ago. Does anyone know what injecting blood under the subcised areas is supposed to do? Thanks
  18. Hi All, I've read a lot about the risks associated with scar treatment after Accutane. The conventional wisdom seems to be anywhere from 6 months to as much 2-3 years after Accutane. However, everything I've read applied to resurfacing procedures such as dermabrasion and laser resurfacing. What I'm wondering is what kind of data is out there for other types of scar treatments such as subcision, needling, smoothbeam, etc after having Accutane? Do the same risks apply? Can anyone point
  19. Hi, I've been a long time viewer of this site and have always found it a positive place where I can read about the latest treatments and find comfort knowing that there are people out there that share my pain. Anyways, after reading up on various treatments I've decided to get a subcision. I'll be in North Carolina for a while and then New Mexico so I was wondering if anyone out there has had a subcision experience in any of these states, positive or negative. Thanks a lot.
  20. Just got back from my derm (Dr. Jones in Winchester), and we discussed my options for scar removal, he seemed very keen on C02 resurfacing saying most people see 60%-80% improvment from it. But I explained to him that I didnt think C02 was a very good idea (maybe a last resort) for various reasons and I asked if he knew about Subcision, Isolagen and N-lite, he only knew about N-Lite, but when I asked him about Dr. Chu he basically said Dr. Chu was a really clever and skilled bloke, he called him
  21. and he suggested for my chicken pox mark that I do - Subcision..and then some N Lite. $700 for sub and $650 for the N Lite. He seems like he is very knowlegeable. The office is nice. The staff is a little odd. They interview you first before you see him. Question: Has anybody had subcision for a chicken pox or indented scar and what happens to the BORDER of the scar? does the scar fill in and the BORDER disappears? any input would be appreciated - Thanks.
  22. I would really appreciate it. I will be having smoothbeam but I think I would benefit a lot more doing subcision and smoothbeam combined. Any of you know any good places to go to for subcision in Los Angeles ...by the way I live in the 213 area. -not2bad
  23. I had an appointment with Dr. Rapaport this morning and he seemed like a very straightforward and nice guy. However, he turned me away for treatment. He said that since I told him that my scars (which are shallow) did not respond to two previous rounds of subcision in the 1990s (with Dr. Robert Orentreich in NYC) he saw no need to try the subcision again on me. At first, his patient counselor was advocating subscision followed by N-Lite for me. But Dr. Rapaport nixed that plan. Anyway, he was ve
  24. I've been using isotrex (0.05%) for almost 3 months. In the last few days I've started to leave it on all night (prior to that only 1 hour/night). I've had a huge improvement in the last few days. My red scars are almost gone and I've noticed that the shallow scars have filled in evenmore .I also had nlite and subcision 6 weeks ago. My pores are smaller and my skin looks fresh.I had a few fine lines which I honestly can't see anymore. I don't have a dryness problem anymore eventhough I'
