    My Saline Injections for my scars

    So it has been about a week and a half since my first experience with the saline injections. and i am HAPPY, no i am THRILLED to say i see an improvement! my scars "have filled in" (but not entirely). i am guesing i will need maybe 2 more saline treatments. and i cant wait until i see a full result.. i will keep u all informed...

    But, saline injections are temporary, they're not long-term. Or to my understanding they are. From what I read, saline injections are not permanent.

    How do they work? For example, how do they just fill in the scar and no effects the rest of your skin?

    What kind of scars did you have?

    Yes, the saline injections are temporary. However they may last for years and years. (Like everything else, they vary with every person).

    I paid $100 and the doc "filled in" about 15--20 scars for ONE treatment (I am a cash patient...insurance is not covering anything so it may be cheaper)

    The saline injections just fill in the scar and have NO effect on other areas of the skin at all. The needle is placed directly into the scar.

    My scars are mostly on the sides of my face and noticeable. The have the appearance of "craters". They are medium in size I'd say and "indented".

    Any other questions, I shall try my best to answer

    Keep us posted if you get more injections, and tell us how they go.

    I heard the effects only last for a few months then the scar goes back to the way it was.

    hmm Forgotten, I am unsure about that. But I will keep you posted with my own experiences with the injections.
    My best friend also had the injections done over a year ago and her face looks great. Her scars are virtually unnoticeable still with the injections treatments.

    yo luckystar1

    hey how's it going? i haven't talked to you in such a long time. How is your face now?

    I'm happy to say that i'm clear now. i hardly have any acne anymore since i controlled it with diet. My scars have successfully faded since I had my powerpeel and spanish peels. Things for me are going GREAT. I never thought that I would finally acheive clear skin.



    well, i hope things are going well for you.
