Follow-up question: Question to Dr Emer per Subcision and TCA Cross question.

Thank you for your response. I am based in London, UK do you have any recommendations? The consultant I was seeing is an Professor on acne and acne scarring. I must say I also intervened in the healing as I panicked with the bruising/burn created and used an astringent as I have done this before on superficial acne scars. This has caused the skin to peel and thought same would happen with this. I am using a silicon gel now.

Hyperbaric oxygen can improve burns in addition to the silicone gel with growth factors. However, an in person evaluation is needed to get a proper evaluation and treatment. See an expert to minimize possible scarring. Best, Dr. Emer
