TCA Cross

There are many types of acne scars, but the most troubling for patients is the ice pick type. These indented scars are difficult to mask and can last a lifetime.

TCA is a chemical used for chemical peels and comes in various strengths. When used by physicians for the TCA cross procedure, the strength used is 30%-100%. If used improperly, this chemical can cause permanent scarring and disfigurement. When used properly by a professional, it can dramatically improve and help to permanently fill in deep pitted ice pick acne scars.
