I am reviewing this procedure since i feel there are not much reviews about this procedure online.
I had a problem of acne scars, uneven skin texture, freckles etc for almost like 10 yrs now. It had a huge impact on my social life as well as on my psychology due to which i decided to go for this procedure.
& i planned to get the procedure done once i'd get some days off from my work.
And finally i went in for the procedure on 6th December 2015.
It is much of an outpatient procedure. I reached his clinic at around 1 pm. I was taken into the O.T where my face was scrubbed and local anaesthesia in the form of an infra orbital nerve blocks on both sides of the face and on the nose region was given. It had an immediate numbing effect over the nose,cheek and upper lip area. The procedure was started at around 2 PM & took around 45 minutes.
The procedure was very tolerable since the area where it was to be performed had been numbed. After the procedure, my face was bandaged and i was kept in the OPD for 2-3 hours for the observation after which i was allowed to leave for home and was asked to be back after 4 days for the review & the dressing,if required.
Since it is an invasive procedure, i was prescribed the following medicines:
Augmentin 1gm(antibiotic) for 4 days
Lyser D( pain killer & will also help with swelling) for 4 days
Vit C tablets( helps in healing) for 4 days
Enzoheal( it also helps in healing) for 4 days.
Now today( 11/dec/2015) i was called for a review of the condition where the doctor opened the bandage and said the healing has been good till now.
I'm attaching the 3 photographs(2 of the left side of the face & 1 of the nose area). I have not attached the pic of the right side of the face since the wound there is a little raw and i was asked to keep it covered for another 24 hours(the doctor did the dressing over that small area in the OPD itself,today!)
I've also been prescribed Vit C tablets that are to be taken thrice daily for 7 days plus cleansing the face daily with any good but gentle facewash & vit C serum,of which 3-4 drops are to be applied every night before sleeping.
Thank you very much.
I'll keep u guys updated. :)
