Red Marks Post-TCA Cross for Acne Scars

9 weeks ago I had my first tca cross 100% for acne scars. the treated areas are still red. is this normal and is there anything I can do to get rid of it?

Red spots form TCA

May try a topical steroid to decrease the redness.  You may start with 1% hydrocortosone and if this is note effective you may need a prescription steroid cream.
