I saw many people are wondering about Phenol Chemabrasion with Dr. Rullan, you are free to ask any questions.

I benefited a lot from this forum and your posts, so I would like to help.

I got this done with Rullan last month. Most of my scars are still there. I'm waiting 3 months post-procedure to post my experience/how I felt about the results.

@Miro Yes, few weeks ago

@gynoscar Yes, I still can see some scars, but overall I see it more under specific lighting and the shadow, in direct lighting it looks pretty good. I even didn't have a month, don't wanna judge my results yet, still hope that some scars will fill up more. Also, keep I mind that if you still have redness, it does make scars look much worse.

I had the same idea, to post picture after 2-3months. My skin is mess now, Dr. Rullan also did touch ups for white lines a week later and I got surge of acne because of healing ointments.

@Charisma Treatment itself for 2 days is bearable (not super painful),  I was told I have high pain tolerance though. In my opinion the real nightmare process is after, very uncomfortable. 1st 4 days were painful in fire and then on day 5th instead of painful it became super itchy, it was especially bad until day 9. Only on day 9 I was allowed to remove green mask. Allegra they recommended did nothing for me, also keep in mind not under any circumstances you cannot scratch your face, even it it is itchy, if you rip off your green mask accidentally, you can end up with new scars. I was scared to scratch myself accidentally during sleep and was not able to sleep well for 9 days. At the end office recommended me  prednisone pills fo itchiness, but I decided not to take it (Were already taking too many pills and it was day 7 maybe). Prednisone pills are not included in the basic list of medications they ask you to buy, maybe it is good idea to ask office for this prescription and get it in advance. Good luck!

Also, if someone is interested, in my opinion I have very similar scarring as screwscars, at least it looks the same to me on the photos( maybe in reality, it is different). I don't think I will have the same flawless result as she though. One of the reason for this to be fair, I did have manual scars preparation prior phenol, but it wasn't as extensive as her preparation.

I did 3 subcissions, 2 TCA Cross, 2 Erbium, 2 PRF, done with Dr. Rullan. Prior those I was regularly doing Microneedling at home, peels, also I was using tazorac(0.1 gel), vitamin C, peptides.

I didn't think that phenol chemabrasion will fully remove my scars and give me glass skin, my purpose was getting fresh start and better overall skin completion. I had a lot of sun damage, pigmentation, started to notice slight wrinkle on the forehead, all these factors contributed and made my skin look bad overall. Also, personal circumstances played a role. The most important, it is WFH(COVID). I'm not sure, when next time I will have opportunity for that much downtime (Other treatments don't require that much downtime).

After my skin heals, I will see, where I can go from there, I still have plans to do more treatments.

Hey Lany. Wondering if you can give us an update about your phenol peel? I’m seriously considering on having it done in August.
