I live in bay area, and I plan to have my acne scar treatment. I believe I would need RF needling and subcision. Dr. Rullan seems to be the best in west cost, but he is is San Diego. I think I would several sessions of treatment, so I would think doing it close to my home makes my life much easier. I am wondering if anyone has done acne scar treatment with Dr. Swengel in Refined Dermatology in Los Gatos, which is much closer to me. How big the difference would be?

@froyosh Dr Rullan is a acne scar specialist, top 1%, Swengel is just a normal dermatologist - but he does do subcision. Heavy on the lasers. Go see Swengel if you can afford it and want energy devices, he is expensive. You can goto both if needed. Some start with S and goto R.

@beautifulambition Thanks a lot for your suggestion and quick response. I will try to schedule appointments with both of them and see if they offer different treatments, then consider the prices.
