is this your 2nd time getting phenol cross?
3rd. I don't think the first one counted as it was much weaker than the 2nd and 3rd. @ the office, Dr. Rullan gave an explanation of why he's convinced TCA cross expands (and lifts) scars while phenol just bruises (thus lifting) the scar but doesn't expand it. I like phenol so far.

Hey, thanks for updating! Progress on your left cheek looks pretty good.. although I noticed that your current afters are no close ups like your befores of the first post.
Left side has texture issues and 3 main pits I want to fill. I didn't notice the scars on the bottom towards the mouth until I took that picture, will probably like to clean that up.
Will get a close up next time in a few months. Planning for filler then infini, so I'll be swollen for a while. Some of my before pictures will look better than my after pictures due to length of swelling.

That post procedure microswelling is the best high. Hopefully most of the lifting of the scars remains after things settle. You're looking really good so far.
And thank you for following up.
Having been in this acne scar game for so long, I'm not too hopeful. Best of luck to all of us.
Had cannula subcision, phenol, needling 2 weeks ago. It's unlikely I'll ever want nokor again; cannula subcision hits all the scars in one treatment rather than just certain areas, and I'm not bruised for months. Also only 2 incision points!
I figured a downtime timeline might help some people here plan their treatments around school or work, so here is mine. To those who are flying in for the procedure and flying out same day - . The face looks absolutely terrible right after treatment. The 24 hour picture, swelling has already reduced considerably.
It may be early to post results but here's where I'm at. Same lighting, different angles.

its hard to tell of the progress from these pics but i do understand that in person they are probably way better. How much % would you say you got?
In this lighting condition (dark room + spotlight LED) little to no improvement. The problem with this lighting in my opinion is a shallow scar casts a deep shadow, just like a deep scar.
In other lighting conditions like @ work in the bathroom (florescent), huge improvement - I was ecstatic after looking at it recently. I wish there was a better way to measure scar depth and size for the layman.
