  1. They should be able to part your hair and see how large the scar is, especially at a 2.5 or 3 guard. and to your question about pre-treatments you are probably referring to Fraxel. It's a laser and can be quite expensive. The idea is it would help smooth out the scar to a more even tone, but it was meant as more for acne scars. I had about 4 treatments years ago and it did nothing for me. Some say it really helped them. If you go that route My personal advise on that would be to see 4 or 5 laser practitioners and see what the consensus is if it will help your case or not.
  2. I'd be interested in Seeing that scar. At 2 or 2 and half inches I doubt anyone would assume ht scar. That could literally be from just about anything. I know it's your scar so you'll feel different about it, but I probably wouldn't even worry about it.

    Jacko, sorry you're in the same Situation. Wish I had Advise for you but unfortunately I'm not sure what to do either. One thing I can say is, now that my hair has Grown back and I've been keeping my self busy I've been able not to dwell on it. The dwelling is the worst part. Not to say I'm moving on. I'm just planning my next move rationally, because whatever it is it's going to cost a lot so I need to gather the info and funds appropriately. Good luck in what you decide to do and don't let it consume your day to day like I was starting to do.
  4. SMP into Scar

    Looking good so far. Who's doing the procedure? I'll Def be keeping an eye out on this.

    Hey Beach, sorry for the late reply. I've grown my hair back.. Still debating what I want to do, because it was expensive. With my head shaved and not what I was hoping for it was all I could think about. I was basically going obsessed. I'm working in all my possibilities right now. I'm considering FUE into the scar now. I don't care if I have a fully shaved head, and if I can get it buzzed close that would be awesome. It's a lot more money though. Who was your practitioner? How did your laser removal go?

    I actually started growing my hair back in dissapointment. Had some meetings I needed to attend and was too freaked out about my scar. Sadly now I'm depressed about my hair. I did pay pretty good money for my procedures so I would like to get back to talk to someone at his for evaluating why it's too dark.

    ha, I wish I could have gone to a 14. Mine was one of the very lightest shades. In fact my first 2 sessions were the lightest shade. I have blonde hair that when grown out looks dirty blondish but is apparently very light when shaved.

    Hey Beach. at 5 days I'd say you still have time to relax. Unfortunately for me it's 7 weeks and still too dark. I'll let you know how it goes
  9. I like the idea of this post. I'm feeling about the same as you. I'd show mine but I started growing my hair out to hide it again. I had to go to a few meetings where I didn't have the guts to show the scar off. Disappointing because I know it needs more work still, but I just wasn't sure if I was seeing what I hoped for. How about you? Willing to start off with your pics?

    thanks for the reply flash 14 weeks is a long time. Did HIS advise you to keep waiting that long, and did you see some degree of fading happening through out the 14 weeks? I'm not sure I am right now and I would be very disappointed waiting three months and it not getting any lighter. I'm not comfortable leaving the house with out a hat right now so not sure If I should start growing my hair back out or what.
  11. too dark at 4 weeks

    ok. here is the pic that shows what I am concerned with. It was hard to get a photo by myself and is too bright but still shows it. I'm at 5 weeks tomorrow now and it's very noticeable.
  12. Luck with Scar creams?

    Blue Smurf, did i read you tried dermarolling? If so what was your thoughts on that?
  13. I'm sure it depends heavily on the scar, but i tried once and don't think it helped in my case
  14. too dark at 4 weeks

    Yeah I'll try to get a pick up on the coming tuesday (i went on vavation and left my shaver like noob). Who knows, maybe it will have settled more by then
  15. Hey, looking to get advise. I'm at about 4 weeks of my 3rd treatment and half of my scar is very dark compared to the surrounding area (oddly the other half faded down to just about right if not too light). Is there still time to fade considerably? I was told it could take 6 weeks to settle, but it appears to be quite a bit darker than just settling.
