Laser and Dermatologist in Irvine costed me more than $5,000.00. It worked but after the regimen. I'm back to my old self again. Ain't that terrible. The good thing that laser did to me was my wrinkles. The ACNE prevailed. |
: I have bad acne scarring myself but have been
: looking into laser skin resurfacing. It is
: much more expensive. It can range anywhere
: between $5000 - $7000. I am not sure about
: silicone injections but I was informed by my
: dermatologist about collogen injections. I
: was told they are not permanent. I do not
: think they last very long.
: I saw two differnet doctors regarding my
: scarring and both felt that laser
: resurfacing would have the best results.
: It is a very big decision to make. It all
: depends on the severity of your scars. You
: should really look further into different
: treatments for treating your scars.
: Good luck.

: I went to see a dermatologist for treatment
: scars left from acne. The scarring has
: left depressions in the skin. The good
: doctor told me it could be easily
: corrected by 2-3 visits consisting of
: filling the depressions with liquid
: silicone injections. I don't know anything
: about the procedure. He said he's been
: doing it for years. Each visit will cost
: $700. Please share any information on the
: subject. Thanks.
