Re: Scars
Jan 10, 2009
Home made products will not do anything for icepick scars and dents. They only help with flat surface red marks. I have successfully treated my icepicks with Silkia camellia oil and Epidermx microdermabrasion cream.

I had 5 deep dents on my forehead - about 2mm deep, but they were signifcantly filled in after one year's faithful use of these products. Before the 2nd year was out they were almost invisible any more. I can't see them until I look them closely in the mirror. I had another 3 dents above my lips. They are not as completely healed as the others but still have significantly improved. Now I only need to dab some concealer to hide them. Before even the best concealer couldn't cover them up - they would show through after 1 or 2 hours.

You can try professional microdermabrasion or laser. But I can say they won't completely get rid of your dents. Expect only minor results after a couple of treatments. Many on this board have done professional microdermabrasion, laser, peels, and other treatments like Flexel but I have yet to hear anyone say these treatments got rid of their scars 100%. Most people just did a few sessions of treatments over a couple of months and of course there could not be any significant results. Time is your friend. It takes a looooooong time for the dents to fill in. My experience tells me that, unless your scars are teeny tiny, there can't be great results if you only expect a couple of months.
