Scars Are Deeper and Larger - Amarillo, TX

I am a 54 yr old woman and I had spot dermabrasion to remove a few scars on my face. Now the scars are defintely larger and deeper. Fillers are expensive and painful, and non eneding. So what else can a person do? It has only been 41/2 wks since my dermabrasion but I am hoping I didn't mess up! What are the alternatives? Or am I expecting too much too soon?

Well not right now. Maybe later on down the road.

There is a permanent filler available now but you have to get tested first to make sure there is no allergic reaction.

Hi Neacy -- I'm sorry to hear about your disappointing results. Where did you go for your dermabrasion? Did they give you any indication whether these results are typical?

You may want to post a question on our Doctor Q&A forum and get advice from doctors. They can tell you more about what to expect from dermabrasion healing. Photos are also really helpful, if you have them.

I hope things get better for you soon. Good luck!
