  1. Your skin looks amazing! I also had a great experience with accutane. Your skin looks very healthy as well which is awesome.
  2. I’ve heard people head back the same day depending on the procedure, though I’d imagine you’d want to get a hotel at least for a night. Dr rullan is well worth it. I wish I would have started my journey with him!
  3. Hi all! I know how it feels when people got procedures and they wouldn’t follow-up with posts. Ha but I’m trying. Anyway I will try and post some 2 month post procedure pics tomorrow. I am very happy with the results as not only my scarring but my skin in general just feels so much healthier. I’m still a little red but nothing like I thought I would be and my cheeks are still sore and sensitive, but again nothing unmanageable. From where I was with my scarring etc, this was a great decision for
  4. I found the same things and it made me nervous. This is a very intense procedure and so honestly I would only feel comfortable going to Rullan. Administration, method, experience are all extremely important. Also Rullan has a double day procedure yeilding better results.
  5. Yes definitely! I'm happy to help...especially as I couldn't find a ton of info on this procedure. In about a month or so I plan on giving a pretty in depth review of my experience. I wanted to wait until my skin healed a bit more to ensure that I was documenting facts and not my emotional experience. Until then I will say that since taking accutane over ten years ago, my skin has not had a break-out and I have developed no cysts. This is important because due to the recovery of this peel (and l
  6. Hi all, I wanted to give a brief update with two pics. It has been about 18 days since my phenol peel. My face is still red but much less than I was anticipating. I tried to get the “after” pics in the same lighting and they were taken in the same place. I’ll take some more soon in different lighting. I’m sure there’s still microswelling etc, but I am very pleased with the initial results. My skin overall feels much better. Some precancerous spots I have are gone as well as wrinkles under my eye
  7. 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
  8. For me, Rullan. Fortunately I live in San Diego so it’s not an issue for me (although I had no idea who he was until I started this site). I love it that he’s not laser oriented and (at least for me) never felt like he was selling me something. He’s realistic but also confident in his skills. I had a bit of an uncomfortable experience during my first meeting with him, which has since been rectified. I plan on posting my experience with the phenol peel in another week or so. Anyway the other thin
  9. 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
  10. Hi all... has anyone had a phenol peel completed? I’m just wondering your experience and how it impacted scarring/wrinkling. I live in San Diego and Dr Rullen recommended this for me. I’ve had so many lasers and other treatments so I just want to make sure it’s worth the money etc. Can anyone share their experience? Also BA thanks for your guidance! Oh does it make the skin thin like lasers?
  11. Have you been tested for polycystic ovarian syndrome? May be something to look in to.
  12. I really have no idea...although I’m sure I’ve had both at this point! Clearly I have no idea because I combined the two lasers in my spelling! Ha. Lmk if you find out
  13. Thanks for the info! What type of laser is Profraxel? I get confused in all honesty with all the different lasers. Thank you! It has been a long, often times, painful journey. I am going to try and take some pics with the flashlight.
  14. Hey Eva! I had the sculptra added everywhere they did the subcision. So basically all over my cheeks and they also put some in my temple areas even though I have no scarring there. She focused on my jawline. So thanks for suggesting TCA cross. Embarrassingly enough, although I have been on this journey for quite some time, and have looked at this forum, I have never been to the scar section! So I am just now learning about other things to do aside from lasers. Have you done TCA cross? What do yo
  15. Has anyone here had experience with Bellafill? I know that there are people who are strongly against it; so I'm just wondering from anyone who has actually used it before and the results. Thank you!!
  16. Hi Jaspa! I'm not sure if there's a way to click reply to your comment but hopefully you get notified. So I have done 2 aggressive subcisions to far, both including sculptra. The tx I got was a few incisions by the ear and she snapped all the bindings from this. I've read that some people have had individual incisions and snaps. Not sure what the difference is. I am having Bellafill and subcision completed again on April 12, so I will be sure to post pictures afterwards. Did you get results from
  17. Hello all! I have lurked on here for years, mainly when I was dealing with active acne. Anyway, quickly about me, I suffered from acne from the age of 10 to about 22. However, my acne did not get severe and cystic until about 19-21. I'm sure I don't need to describe here how awful it was. I have only really had acne severely on my cheeks; although I went through periods on temples, forehead, and neck, I have no scarring in those areas. I have also never had acne anywhere on my body aside from my
