Help With Acne Scarring

Recommended Posts

Hello, I’m looking into different options for treating acne scarring and I’m hoping to get help identifying what type of scarring I have and how severe it is and what type of treatment to follow. I’m thinking it’s mostly scarred pores with hyperpigmentation and a few boxcars, but I’m not sure how much of it is textural or whether it’s more complex.

I live in the Bay Area and I’m considering seeing Dr. Rullan, as is often recommended here. But I want to get an idea of what I need before reaching out to his office.

As a note, although I don’t get pimples very often anymore, I do believe I have mild popular rosacea because I get these small little bumps that quickly go down, but leave hyperpigmentation. I’m not sure if these small papules are creating additional scarring or not. Anyway, I believe I’m sensitive to hyperpigmentation and it’s probably negatively affecting the overall appearance of my scars. I don’t know if this makes me at risk for certain treatments.

 

Any help is appreciated. Thank you very much.

@beautifulambition replied to me via PM. He suggested a few sessions with Dr. Rullan (phenol CROSS, Subscision, etc.), 3 sessions of RF Microneedling, one session of 1927nm Fraxel 22 passes over cheeks (not fully sure what this is yet), and then finishing with either fully ablative erbium laser or a peel.

[This is a generic treatment plan given to most.] You probably don't need to put yourself through a phenol peel with the cost and and downtime and obviously side effects.

I don’t understand how BA is allowed to edit and hide posts by me and others. Nothing wrong with what I originally stated in my post above to have the first sentence removed. Kinda sad to see a moderator doing this.
