Still dealing with the scars from the Erbium Laser...

Still dealing with the scars from the Erbium Laser. Going on 5 yrs this March. On my 4th treatment of Restore Dual. Seeing a little change but too soon to tell yet. I'll let you know in 3 months when the results are supposed to show.

Ok so I had 4 treatments of Restore Dual. Wasn't...

Ok so I had 4 treatments of Restore Dual. Wasn't impressed after going though all that. In June I went to another doctor who did another fraxel restore. She used the highest level. I have to say this is the first time I saw some good results. Altho I did wind up with some blisters around my mouth & chin that were a real pain to deal with. Their still healing but the rest of the scars look better. A month later she put some Sculptra around my temples, outside the eyes & high cheek area. Went back a few weeks later for more. Your supposed to have 3 treatments of Sculptra to really see a difference but I already see an improvement after 2. I've been though so so many treatments & spent thousands that's it's nice to see a bit of an improvement. The other doctor was good but he didn't want to use such a high level on me after having such bad results from the Erbium Resurfacing, he took it slow but she went full blast & I'm glad she did. I go back for the 3rd injection of Sculptra next week. Then I'll go back in Jan for another fraxel from her. I want my skin to heal & see how the Sculptra is doing after a few months. I can't believe I got the fraxel restore from her from a Groupon! Her name is Dr Cross in Tampa. Fl. I spent thousands on the others & never got this good of a result. Find a good doctor. That makes all the difference in the would. I would never ever go for another laser that takes skin off. That's the reason for all my scars. I found a good exfoliate that I want to tell you about. It's called "Cure" It scared the heck out of me when I used it the first time. It took tons of dead skin off, it rolls off in balls & doesn't turn your skin red. Leave it on for 30 seconds then rub lightly. It's amazing. You can look it up on youtube & buy it on Amazon.

Wanted to tell you the other doctor that I said...

Wanted to tell you the other doctor that I said was good was not Jasin !! He's the one who gave me the scars. The doctor I was talking about was Dr Bernstein in PA. He was good but wanted to be safe not to hurt me since Jasin destroyed my skin.

Fat Transfer and Lift to help with scars

I had to have a fat transfer & lift to help the dent and scars that were made by an Erbium laser resurfacing done in 07. I had tried sooooo many kinds of lasers & fillers & peels that I was at my wits end. It's one thing to get a bad dent from an accident which I could take the emotional stress better from than going in one day to have a few scars gone & come out with bad texture, more scars & the same scars & red broken caps all over in one day. So in May after 7 yrs I had fat & a lift. It helped the dent to where I an handle it and helped fill out my face from it looking so thin from all the stress. I still have to go back for a few more scars but so far the fat and lift helped the most. Never ever get a laser resurfacing. It makes your skin thin. But then again it could be the doctor which was the case for me. Make sure to look and talk to others they did work on & check them out really good, I found out later mine had malpractices suits against him. If I only knew but back then there wasn't board like this, check out ipl and laser damage boards and look up your doctors reviews on any site you can find, even ones that go way back. So if people just say they had treatments and not describe what kind then don't go by them. Their probably fake. Only go by the people who say what kind of treatment they had like I had laser resurfacing , not things like, oh he was nice and my procedure or treatment or surgery went great. DAH what procedure or surgery or treatment went great? you want to know what kind their talking about, They could mean just a filler or something little. And if you can look them up on malpractice boards. I wish I did. I didn't know., it's my fault for not finding out more about him since he acted so nice. Their all nice til things go wrong. I'll let you know in a month when I go back to see my surgeon who did the lift & fat transfer to see if he can help me more. I love that man. such a sweetie & when I was concerned about looing puffy he made me come in right away, when I call about anything they ask me when I want to come in & they try to make it the same day. His name is Dr Brandow in Philly in case anyone wants to know. So far I'm glad I used him for the transfer & lift. No one else ever wanted to touch me including a couple I found on realself. They talked a big game on line but when I went it they said they couldn't help me.
Michael Jasin, MD

I had laser resurfacing done. Left w/scars, dent, texture change, red for months. Worse part is he didn't want to help at all. Told me it was my imagination & needed help. Walked out of the office. Left me to fed on my own. Called & wrote every week, he would never call back. Thank God for other doctors who saw the damage & are trying to help. He was very rude & insulting. Wouldn't help you if he saw you under a bus & that's being nice. When i first went in he was great, said he'd fit me in, wish he didn't, he would have done him & me a favor.
