TCA Cross Technique
Often the skin heals with red or pink, this can be improved with lasers such a pulsed dye or yellow laser. Please see an expert. Best, Dr. Emer.
Red acne scars
Red acne scars, even from TCA CROSS can take time to fade- sometimes up to one year. Occasionally they maybe permanent. The good news is that these are the easiest scars to treat (macular erythema). The video below shows V BEAM laser to reduce unwanted red scars.

Redness from TCA
I often combine the V-Beam to treat redness from the acne or acne scars. Please consult a specialist for the best cosmetic treatment. Best, Dr. Green
Redness after TCA CROSS
I do many CROSS treatments in my practice. Any treatment which produces a wound in the skin can cause temporary redness. However, my patients do not typically complain of prolonged redness with CROSS treatment. In your case, it might be possible to improve the redness by treating with pulsed dye laser or other vascular laser. Speak to your dermatologist about this.
