    Just had treatment with Dr. Rullan

    I do agree with you that he isn't very aggressive with phenol cross and too agressive on subcision. I'll schedule my third subcision next month with him

    I didn't put aquaphor and I scabbed on both of my subcision, cross, microneedling.

    TCA + Subcision + Needling with Dr Rullan

    Yes! He said it's two week of down time and I'll still be pink. It seems to give the best result for complexion qnd severe acne scars.

    TCA + Subcision + Needling with Dr Rullan

    I don't have box scar but mostly rolling scars and some ice picks. When he did his consultation, he mentioned mostly rolling scars and icepick as well. Rolling scars saw the most improvement and some icepick. My bruising has improve so it's easier to judge the improvement. I see 40% improvement on some scars on my cheeks. Again I'm 2 weeks out so I don't know if it's the swelling or not. I think subcision should help with all type of scars since it free the tether scars up. That's going to be an expensive trip. Best of luck! You are in good hand. He is very caring Dr. He went back to finish some scars when he missed it the first time. I'm going back to third time in Feb and doing phenol peel in Nov next year.

    TCA + Subcision + Needling with Dr Rullan

    Post 2 weeks update. I feel like this is the most significant improvement. 20-25% in my cheek. I still have some bruising on my cheek where the Taylor Liberator was performed. Area where there are fat loss seems to fill in nicely. It's sorta weird to touch my cheeks and feel the tenderness/sculptra

    Yea he did. I'm more bruise and tender on one side he did it on. The sider with liberator, I'm more plump up. It could be due to liberator or the filler. I think around 15-20% total improvement being conservative for 2 treatments for all type of scars. I have severe acne or so some area improve more than others up to 30% in rolling scars area. I still have splotchy skin so I'm hoping a chemabrasion after my 3rd subcisions would fix uneven skin tone and scars

    @49ersFan Thanks! I'm still swollen on the right side of my cheek with some bruising. I suspect it's due to the Taylor liberator.If you are concern with the bruising or pain, maybe you can ask for the cannula subcision. @cali_scars Via email. He doesn't charge anything for it. He will provide you with the treatment plan and you can coordinate with the office manager for the pricing. I didn't drive to do consultation either. I'm planning to do one more subcision with phenol cross, sculptra, microneedling 3 months from now. I'm planning to have 2-day chemabrasion in late 2019 during the winter month which is recommended to me by @beautifulambition I'm hoping 50% overall improvement with 3 subcisions, cross, filler, microneedling + chemabrasion. That's probably enough for me to move on.

    @cautiouslyhopeful It's a new tool he used for subcision. It's called "Taylor Liberator" @beautifulambition did talk about it in forum thread. Just do a search. Here is a video of it on youtube I think I'm the first patient he tested it out on.

    I had my second subcision with Phenol Cross, sculptra filler (1st) and microneeding. I'm more swollen and bruise than last time even a week out. Dr Rullan explained it's due to the sculptra. He did tried a liberator tool on one side of the cheek instead of cannula needle. He switched to cannula for the other side and other when I felt it was more painful than cannula.

    I was given this recommendation by someone base on the images I provided . Sculptra is for the collagen production and fat loss. I also had PRF with the first procedure. Dr Rullan did mentioned I needed fillers later on so both had reach similiar conclusion. I was given a quote to do Microneedling, Subcision, phenol cross and sculptra. I'm not sure to do it all the same time due to the swelling or space the sculptra apart.

    @49ersFan I think 20% is realistic now. It does looks 30% on my cheeks when I just wake up. I'm planning to do subcision, phenol cross and sculptra for stimulating collagen x 2. Finish off with resurfacing peel.

    HSA & Scar Treatment

    Just wanted to update this thread. I was able to qualify for HSA reimbursement with a letter of medical necessity from the dermatologist. I'm planning put aside some HSA money to do 3 more procedures (Subcision, Phenol cross, Needling, PRF) and maybe erbium laser for texture next year.

    Some hope for everyone

    This is just so heart breaking to see. The other instagram video show another angle of his scars. Even the needle couldn't penetrate his scars. I can't imagine how difficult it's for him to endure all these years.
  15. @superburrito who is this Dr in LA? My treatment with phenol cross, Microneedling, Subcision, prf injection came out to be 1200 with Dr Rullan.
