I Am an Indian with a Dark Complexion..I Wanted to Try TCA CROSS for Acne Scars..is there a High Risk of Hyperpigmentation?
Yes. Hyperpigmentation is the primary risk.
Higher concentrations of TCA are notorious for causing post-inflammatory pigmentation in darker skin, but your dermatologist can both pre-treat your skin to reduce the risk and post-treat to reduce the severity. Using high level sun protection and retinoids as well as doing this procedure in the winter will reduce the risk.
