    Sorry i haven't been back in a while! Wanted to wait to make sure what ive been doing is helping, now id like to point out a couple things; Firstly, ive only done 2 sessions of dermastamp/roll combined/alternated with glycolic peels and secondly, through all my previous peels i dont believe i cleansed my face as well as i should have because its only after the last one i did (70% glycolic acid) that i really FELT the penetration and got some pretty effective exfoliation from it. This is suc

    I am on day 3 and I'm feeling a little bit better to talk about my experience. I am Asian male and had 2 days phenol chemobrasion with Dr Rullan. Prior to procedure, he had order EKG and lab done to make sure everything is normal. I also took antibiotic and antiviral a day before the procedure. He noticed I had some keloid on my chest and offer to take care of it. My previous medical history regarding to acne scar include mechanical dermabrasion ( the late Dr Y in New Orlean) and 4 su

    I'm on my day 4/5 recovery and I pass through the most uncomfortable part which is day 3. I was itching, burning, and can feel the pulsating blood vessel in my face. My eyes aren't as puffy as before and I look normally now. I had multiple acne scars treatment from mechanical dermabrasion, 3x subcision/microneedling/scrupltra, so I'm not expecting chemobrasion to give me 70-90% improvement. Regardless of what the improvement resulted, I'll be moving on from acne scar treatment and with life

    Subcision without filler is useless.

    Even though I'm not an expert like BA, I also gave advice to tryinghard when he PM'd me last month to do many subcisions with fillers (CROSS on the ice picks and boxcars) and not jump straight to a phenol peel. Phenol peel would be a massive waste of time and money because the scars are no where near level. They can predict a 90% reduction, but all it is IS a guess. I think at this point you should go talk to a therapist and figure out what you want to do with a dermatologist/plastic surgeon.

    I feel like it has killed my brain cells honestly. Since I came off accutane, my brain just feels so slower, softer, devoid of the ability to think critically, devoid of passion and enjoyment. I feel like it's made me simple minded in many ways I don't understand how it can fuck with my brain so badly. I feel like I can never recover the old me. I've regressed as a person because of it. Fuck accutane

    Hi! I know how you feel! I had all the same thoughts. So I’m on day 11 now and my skin is healing great. I will wait until a month before I post pics. I will also give a full detailed account at that point. But feel free to message me with specific questions bc I’ll give you my phone number. I was dying for someone to talk to who had done it—so I know how you feel. As far as pain, you are sedated for both days. I will tell you though that it is not pleasant. During the procedure I had no p

    Hi all, I just had the phenol peel performed by dr rullan on Tuesday. I am determined to give a full account, as I found such limited info and follow-up info from treatment from other users and people on the internet. I will post before and after pics. It’s been 3 days and I had the skin scraping yesterday. Once I’m feeling more up to it I will give a detailed account and answer any questions you all may have. At this point I’m still in a significant amount of pain. Dr rullan wonderful and his a

    this is correct. I have the same type of redness as described in the OP but mine's not from Accutane, it's just from using lots of harsh topicals which irritate and strip away the Lipid Barrier. Although what you say about there not being a treatment for this is incorrect. It's actually very basic biology. If the Lipid Barrier is depleted, then your skin is incredibly sensitive to water and topicals. Therefore any regimen designed around washing the face and applying topicals simply cannot work,

    We all know how you feel, life seems like it's not worth living because of these scars. We all have the same thoughts, "why me" etc... I think acne is one of the worst diseases but that's because I haven't suffered from any others. I have thought suicide, but I don't think that's the answer, I'm still young. But then I think, I can't see myself enjoying life like this. ACNE does as much damage to someone as cancer it seems, and needs to be taken much more SERIOUSLY. I would like to grow up to
