TCA CROSS Procedure for Helping Acne Scars


We hate acne as much as you do! In fact, millions of Americans suffer from acne, and roughly 22% have residual scarring. All types of treatments are available ranging from subcision (trying to elevate the scar), excision (removing the scar), saline injection, dermabrasion, dermal fillers, lasers, and deep chemical peels.

Luckily, a relatively new approach is now on the market and is quickly gaining interest among acne prone consumers. This procedure is called TCA CROSS (Trichloroacetic Acid). Used for over 50 years, this medium-deep chemical peel helps to treat acne scars with minimal downtime and discomfort. Used on ice pick, rolling, or boxcar types, the procedure is done in less than 15 minutes and requires no numbing creams or pain medication. The area treated develops a frosting (whiteness) over the scar which must be covered with antibiotic ointment for the next five days and may develop slight scabbing during that period. Usually 4-6 treatments are needed to see the full results, and studies show the results to be very satisfactory with no pigmentation issues.

So check out TCA Cross procedure and learn how to attack those hard to treat acne scars. It’s non-invasive and practically no downtime. What have you got to lose, but a few scars?
