CO2 laser in treating acne scars - ultrapulse & Subcision of Acne Scars W/ Dr Lim Dr Rullan and Other Drs - Success Story in Progress

Recommended Posts

BA i understand every thing u said we're all different or had some bad experience or poor healers or whatever etc... What i'm trying to know what is her perspective on this matter? Since she's been treating with one of the best dr's in the world how much improvement did she got? It's just feels like so exhausting and frustrating going through all these treatments and still not get the results that she wants there is an improvement that's the good thing but what is ur overall opinion on treating with davin and rullan and how much improvement did she got from them?

I’ve gotten good results from both doctors, definitely my scars have improved by over 40% I’d say. It’s hard to put a number on it. With my scars, there’s a lot of things you can’t see with my scars, ie the fibrosis. 

It is exhausting and it is a lot of money. If someone had told me three years ago I would still be treating my scars to this day, I would have laughed. I have extremely severe scars and unfortunately I’m not a lot of people here who have mild or moderate scarring. 

 

With that being said, I got filler the other day and like the results.

Dr rullan and dr Lim also aren’t miracle workers. They do excellent work and really know acne scars but so much of it is out of their hands, ie healing.

I typically show my face in the harshest of lighting just to add and just after treatment when my face is the worst. I’m not a poor healer, these things just take time. I need to take more “normal” pics so people actually see the difference and weeks in between. I just want to be real with everyone here. 

Thank you :)

And with severe scars, results take a lot of time. You have to be very patient.

Last week I had filler and TCA done by dr Ben Behnam. 

With the financial stress of doing this so frequently and maybe not letting my skin heal as it should, I think I am going to follow @beautifulambition’s advice and go back to treating every 3 months. I feel like because of my scars being so severe I need to treat frequently and get results as quickly as possible. But all of this is getting too much. 

I will schedule an appointment with dr rullan for mid-late November* and focus on more self-acceptance.

Maybe it is just me, but I don't think your scars are severe. 

 

Maybe it sounds silly, but my 'hobby' is now my hair. I have kinda curly, frizzy and dry hair. So I started with the curly girl method which I really like to follow. My hair now is beautiful and I really like to focus nowadays on my hair and products that make my hair nice and curly :)

 

This is just a example how to focus on something else. I'm sure that you find something too :)

Thank you for the messages, they help a lot. I’m booking an appointment for the 21st of November with Dr Rullan, I’m looking forward to it. I’m not sure if I should book a hotel for a couple of nights or come straight back to LA but I will be taking some time off work to heal. 

As far as taking my mind off things, I’m going to join the gym and focus on good thoughts.

It’s only a 2.5 hour drive unless you’re leaving Rullan’s office later in the day. Traffic back to L.A. about 4 hours. I wouldn’t book more than one night if you don’t want to drive in traffic. 

Join L.A. Fitness! Good gym and great way to keep yourself busy and healthy.

Yeah I might stay a night or two because you look very scary post procedure and I’ll regret it if I drive to LA like that lol. And will do! Definitely want to keep busy and take my mind off this as much as possible.

for anyone reading here and considering Dr Rullan, prices have gone up. Instead of 1,000 for microneedling, subcision and TCA it is now 1,500 and will be increasing further to 1,750 USD by the beginning of next year I believe or the end of this year. 

I will still be aiming for a November 21st appointment

He said the reason why he used CO2 core instead of ultrapulse is simple: ultrapulse is far more aggressive, uses more energy and isn’t his FIRST choice unless the scars are severe enough.

i haven’t read full thread yet so apologies if this is answered later but i’m confused...was co2 core used or ultra pulse?

No I had not seen dr Lim at the time these photos were taken and I had not tried erbium or co2

Ive been following your thread since the beginning. All i can say is your scars have healed immensely from these pictures alone. 

Add to that you have a beautiful pair of eyes. All in all, i do not think people will notice your scars when they look at you and spend time with you. Because they are not that noticeable. Once the scar issue is not that dominant, which in your case they are not, what will come forward is your personality and personal hygiene etc. You look like someone who takes care of herself, therefore enjoy life :)
