My journey with Dr. Rullan (TCA, subcision, microneedling) First Session 12/20/18

Recommended Posts

On the topic of bad doctors...Emer is also one of them. No, just no. He may be good with other cosmetic stuff but definitely not an acne scar specialist.

Hello all,

 

I am going in for a third treatment with Dr. Rullan next week.

 

Progress has been great so far - please see original posts for updates.

 

Its been about 3 months since my second procedure. 

So what did Rullan recommend from here on out?

Hello All,

07/06/19 Update has been completed within my original post.

Summary: Finished healing from 3rd round of subcision with Dr Rullan. Planning on doing a phenol peel with Dr. rullan in August. Any Advice would be appreciated!

He recommended to do fillers. But I plan to go more aggressive and go with a peel. He is okay with doing a peel as well. 

I just want to add, I think its best for people with deep acne scars to go through a few treatments of subcision/acid to "lift" up the scars, then probably do a peel to even out skin. It makes sense.

what u say u had further improvement? 

would you recommend phenol cross? 

from what i see on the pictures you do not have any rolling scars, so why would he recommend fillers?

I was considering doing phenol cross but man the treated skin appears to be very pink. How long does that last? Your earlier treatments suggest a low recovery time. When did you get the most recent treatment done?

Also, 6k is a lot. Why not milder chemical or laser pees?

Cool, good luck on the peel. 

I also just finished my 3rd sub+cross w him and I asked him about phenol peel for me and he didn’t really push it so it sounds like he didn’t think I needed it?? He said regular peel for me is fine...and also fillers as well. 

Idk if I have the guts to do a phenol peel tbh, it looks super hardcore. I’ll see where my skin is at in 1-2 months.

Same, did my 3rd a few weeks ago. He pushed for a phenol peel for me but I don't want to risk it, you just never know with these procedures and that one looks waaaay intense.

Hello all, just a quick update. 

 

I am planning on going in for my fourth subcision combo treatment with Dr. Rullan w/ some fillers on 08/26. Decided against the phenol since the down time looked way to excessive (1-2 months). I start my new job in September so the phenol was too prohibitive in terms of downtime. The last thing I want is to show up to work with a super red face and give a bad first impression to my boss and new co-workers. So the phenol will have to be put on hold. In the meantime, just going to do another subcision treatment before I start my new job. I will keep you guys posted on the results. Overall, my skin is definitely improving, but not perfect. I do not think I will ever obtain 100% perfection, but I do really believe that these treatments are helping filling in my scars and making them less noticeable, which i think is the best thing I can do for my skin.

I'm going in 3 days after you for my third subcision/phenol CROSS. Adding sculptra and might also add microneedling seeing how great it has worked out for you. It's been 4 months since #2 due to scheduling conflicts, but glad I gave my face some time to recover and relax. Good luck buddy!
