  1. Like many of you I was very tempted to try out RF microneedling. And amongst different machines Genius seems best designed for this purpose. Well, I just had a consultation of one of the leading providers of Genius (at least that’s my impression from the number of lutronics machines he owns and videos he’s made about genius). Surprisingly he said genius is for skin tightening and that I wouldn’t need that kind of treatment. He went on to suggest a much cheaper (price in the 3-digit inst
  2. Did you see results from Infini?
  3. Considering getting RFMN. My skin seems very prone to lasting redness (possibly have some rosacea), and I’m worried that microneedling might trigger it. So those who’ve had regular or RF microneedling, what was it like for you?
  4. Has anyone seen Dr. Sani? His scar correction approach seems Genius RF and subcision focused, and I'm interested in trying Genius with him. His website has some pretty dramatic B&As too. I can't tell if the afters are photoshopped/blurred. Curious about any experience with Scarlet or Genius RF in the Bay Area too. Especially dr. Ransom and Swengel. Please share!
  5. Under overhead flashlight in a dark room I can see those depressed scars very well, but I can't really see them facing direct sunlight or in car rearview mirrors, so I don't think there's much to be done about the texture anymore. Is there a safe, low risk method to elevate those scars by a notch? I'd prefer permanent improvements, so not really considering fillers at this stage. Thanks!
  6. Morganroth's bedside manner was quite terrible in my experience. Very overpriced as well. Tagging along OP's question - Any recommended doctors in South Bay experienced with fillers for acne scars?
  7. As title says, I'm looking for dermatologists experienced with v-beam in the SF/South Bay Area. The more affordable the better of course. I've talked to California Skin Institute but they charge an exorbitant amount of money plus I really dislike my overall experience with them. Also - I recently had one session of v-beam to take care of some very long lasting but slight redness on the scarred areas, which didn't seem to yield any effect. Is this normal? How many sessions are usuall
  8. You will probably have some slight atrophic scars afterwards but trust me the redness makes them look 1000% worse. Mine looked like yours, actually redder, and so they appeared like deep pits. But once the redness was gone I could barely see any even in close-ups.
  9. First two photos are from a few years ago, and you can definitely see depressed scars on her lower cheeks. They seem to have disappeared or at least significantly lessened since. The last two photos are from 2019/2020. I’d say the improvement on her scars is quite impressive. What kind of treatment do you think she might have received?
  10. Are you suggesting that I give phenol another try? I just don’t want to risk widening my scars again... also is1-2mm considered deep/noticeable? If that’s the case I probably gave the wrong number. I meant the doctor said I just need treatment that penetrates 1-2mm into my skin, as opposed to microneedling that goes up to 3mm.
  11. Had Rullan’s trio package a few months ago. I don’t think the CROSS did much for my quasi boxscars. I call them quasi because the edges aren’t super defined, but they aren’t icepicks or rolling either, so boxscars are the closest thing to what I have. My question is - what other treatments should I try next? I don’t want to try TCA/phenol CROSS again. I actually think phenol widened my scars a teeny bit. Should I try some laser or some kind of needling? I’m quite risk averse now after CROS
  12. I would say at the least my scars haven’t had any noticeable improvements from the CROSS. Maybe a bit widening/deepening but it’s hard to say for sure. Kinda bummed out by the outcome
  13. It means a patient who only needs treatment on, say, their cheeks, would feel ripped off if they had to pay the same amount as another patient who receives treatment on their entire face. You can replace cheeks vs entire face in my example with knees vs face + knees. Price differentiation is just the terminology for the kind of pricing strategy you've described. In reality your doctor might have established a pricing menu, i.e. a treatment price for each area of your body/face of which
  14. Price differentiation so that customers who only needs one area treatment wouldn't feel like they were getting ripped off for paying the same amount for less work. Bay Area is also just expensive in every way possible.
