Is tca cross effective in acne scars?

Doctor Answers 3

ICE PICK scars do best with TCA CROSS

See both the video and the Youtube link. Ice pick scars do best, followed by narrow box car scars. You will require 2-3 sessions. The deeper and narrower the scar, the better the treatment. Never try this at home as the concentration we use ranges from 70-100% TCA, 10 times stronger than 'safe' home TCA preps. See a Dermatologist or Plastics for this treatment. All the best, Dr Davin S.

TCA cross is effective

This is a treatment used to treat ice pick acne scars. Better results are seen when used in combination with the Infini, subcision, PRP. It is safe for darker skin types.
