  1. So i am 23, i have had Severe acne on back, chest, and abdomen since about 2014, I have been on multiple body washes (cheap and expensive), have been on minocycline for about 5 months w no diff. My diet is really clean (no dairy, rarely any eggs, clean proteins, etc just healthy) have had allergy testing, have even had an MRI to see if it was adrenal related (MRI results normal), all blood tests normal (thyroid normal) exercise regularly, only supplement i take is vegan protein powder, yet i breakout like crazy! my face doesn't breakout like before. (pretty clear of active acne). But my back is killing me it is itchy, and has lots of severe nodules, will be going to one of the top 3 dermatologists in arizona on December 31st. Will ask derma for a skin culture to see if perhaps it is fungal or something else. If not i am gonna accept Accutane, I know the risks and have decided to just go for it. will update here for anyone who wants to follow.
  2. Sorry for being away for so long, just finished nursing school and have extremely busy with assignments, clinicals, etc. Planning to get my 2nd subcision with rullan around mid january, will post pics around end of december. sorry guys

    Subcision/cross progress - before/after

    is this your 2nd time getting phenol cross?
  5. hmmm good to know. i will try juvederm in october after my next subcision. what type of juvederm was it? i know its just that i wanted to get this peel before pictures. MEH i mean filler did help a little bit. I still regret tca cross, and wish the moderators would stop recommending it, The redness is pretty much gone from the cross but i think it made some wider. some days it does seem like they are raising but idk. seriously its too harsh. I would say the filler gave me like 20%ish improvement. idk but I'm feeling good about this peel even tho its just a peel that literally never gets recommended, well see tho. I feel like the subcision also helped except its hard to put in pics bc in my bathroom in the dark w a light n the background i can def see that the subcision did lift some of the harsh scars up quite a decent amount.
  6. Op here: received a vi peel w precision plus boost 6 days ago almost done peeling, ill post pics sometime this month. Planning to prob get another vi peel in a month. And then another subcision w rullan early october.

    PRP Injections for Depressed Acne Scars

    i have done several prps I've done 3. I don't think it does much. its more like a booster for an additional treatment, plus they are saying that prf is better than prp now, I've never done prf.

    Subcision/cross progress - before/after

    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?
  9. i will post pics after my vi peel. My vi peel will be done august 1.
  10. Why do a lot of derms say no? theres a lot of facial nerves there that could cause paralysis on side of face which is rare but i went to a derma here in phi and he said he doesn't do temples. but with cannula it is fine.
  11. op here: ok it has been about 5 weeks since subcision and about 3 weeks since filler. I am comfortable with results, not suuper happy but comfortable. some scars look more plumped up in that harsh overhead lighting. overall scars seem to be on the same plane. I was freaking out a while ago bc of the lumpiness of the filler but that goes away in a few days, it takes like 2 weeks for the filler to settle and plump up if that makes sense. I would say temples got improvement of like 35-45%, overall improvement was like 35-45% which is good considering it is my first official subcision plus filler procedure. My plan is to get a VI peel in about 2 weeks in hopes to fade some hyper pigmentation a bit. i will go back to rullan sometime in october for sub + filler. And probably will do it again in february. and after that will probably wait 4 months to get an erbium or 2. I will post pics sometime this upcoming week. @ChildhoodDreams when i post pics up can you do that before and after thing, i tried following directions you sent me to do it myself but i can't figure it out, probably bc i have a mac. idk. thnx.

    Be careful of doctors offering Subcision

    yea thats pretty much what i said, people still cling onto nokor for some reason idk why. cannula seemed to the same amount of popping tethers.

    Be careful of doctors offering Subcision

    just putting my 2 cents out there. I came across an article a while ago probably in late december 2017 that said cannula subcision had less side effects (lumps from hematoma, added scars) than NOKOR. I believe rullan ran into this article and decided not to do nokor anymore. Why does it matter whether its w cannula or nokor? i heard lots of popping with the cannula when rullan did it, and had no lumps to this day, why not use it entirely over nokor? people just assume cuz nook is a mini scalpel its going to do waaayyyy better? idk what do i know I'm not a derma and i don't have thousands of subcisions performed under my belt. if theres an medical article saying 80 something pts prefered cannula over nokor idk why people still talk about nokor being so great. its like the whole tca cross 100% thing there are waaay more negative reviews for it than positive ones probably 5 negative ones for every positive one there is, yeeeettt mods and other people always keep recommending it for ice picks.
  15. Now that the dust had settled a bit and evened out, i guess it did help a bit but not as much as i tought. 30ish%?? Anyway will take pics sometime next week to upload.
