Please help, 70% abrasion scars on my leg

Postby tinating » Wed, 21 Oct 2009 9:54 pm

I used to be a freelance model, until i got into a motorbike accident with a van while riding my motorbike in october 2008.

My scars runs over 60% of my right leg.

I went to visit an aesthetic doctor and got to use hydroquinone 4% to lighten it,however its not really responsing fast.

I hope there is a cure out there, which is affordable and effective.

I am currently 20 years old, a student studying at Republic polytechnic.

I went to many many aesthetic doctors, and got cheated. Therefore, i got no choice but to post this up, rather than paying a lump sum for consultation and knowing there isn't hope.

Anyone out there experiencing the same, or do know any good aesthetics doctors?

hi there,

sorry to know what happen, but can i check with you, if you say you have been to TOO many aethetics clinic and was cheated..

hmmm, does it mean that you have already done lots of treatment and yet the result remains? if yes, maybe you can check out what is the best treatment thru the internet for your scarring first and consult the doc again, see if they provide such service,

scarring is one of the top enemies for girls, no matter what the outcome is, remember that the scarring is permanent.. no matter what kind of treatment you are using, you must be very persistent to see results.

Hi,

i'm sorry to hear about what happened to you.

Firstly, it is going to take time for the scaring to improve.

From the pictures, it looks like it's the lumpy kind of scarring vs the pigmentation (color) type. the hydroquinone is best for reducing the dark pigmentation rather than the lumpy kind of scarring.

What type of aesthetic people have you been consulting? Are they spa type places or actual doctors?

there are 2 types of doctors i would recommend that you go to. The first you should consult is a dermatologist. See what they say and whether it even makes sense for you to see a plastic surgeon.

I have a couple of dermatologists that i've used if you are interested.

But you need to bear in mind that it is going to take time to heal. and whatever improvement you can achieve will take time and it may not be 100%

i agree with what bubblesgal said - you are looking for a miracle treatment that does not exist.

hydroquinone shld work but it will take time. (cheap & effective)

blessed that you are still young so your skin shld improve thru time.

national skin centre is a good consideration if you are concern abt greedy docs out there.

experimenting with services from beauty salons/aesthetic salons/spas etc will just burn a bigger hole in your pocket, u end up with a bigger disappointment, with that same old scar.

Yup.. the scar will always be there.. no 100% but i wonder by using, Egyptian magic cream would help anot..

i think the dermatologists can laser dark pigmentations. but im not sure so just consult with a doctor instead of the beauty creams.
