Greatly Reduced Acne Scars - San Francisco, CA

I did (3) 2.0 mm treatments at a dermatologists office in San Francisco, Ca. First off it hurts. Make sure you get shots with the numbing cream. Did my first one with only numbing cream and i felt every needle. I had acne scars all over my face, small ones on my forehead and deeper ones on my cheeks and temples. It really help with reducing all of my smaller scars. I had little hope that it would remove my deeper scars and was only hoping to reduce the appearance of them. I have had been looking for a fix for my scars for years and learned early on that theres nothing that will completely remove them, only improve the look. I have done microdermabrasion, collagen injections all with limited results.

This gave me the best results. While it didnt remove all my scars it allowed the rest of my face to look more healthy. Leaving me feel alot more comfortable. I no longer avoid mirrors. Hoping to start doing home dermal rollers since it gets expense really quick with having each procedure done about every 6 weeks. By the way I made plans to hide at my sister house for about 5 days. Your face looks really bad for the first 3 days, bruised face, white heads come up, alot of anti bacteria cream, can't allow your healing skin to dry out. I felt comfortable about the 5th day to return home. Feel free to send me any questions you may still have.

Well I'm sad to say my scars have return to their normal self. i'm disappointed that theres not much noticeable improvement. Even the light scars have came back. i don't understand why there so many different ways doctors tell you that you can remove your scars. You would think if something work they all be doing the same procedure. I think its become more about profit then providing procedures that work. I hate thinking this is the one that going to work and then becoming disappointed when it shows little to no improvement. My tablet about to die so i'll update the rest later.

Felt very comfortable when I first spoke to Dr. Glandstone.
