This treatment involves applying high concentration of TCA (Trichloroacetic Acid) directly inside of an atrophic scar (ex. icepick, boxcar and rolling). This causes an inflammatory reaction that leads to the formation of new collagen. When the tissue experiences trauma in a controlled method like this, the body's natural response to healing is collagen production in the affected area. As the skin remodels itself the scar will fill in depth and width. Once the TCA is applied, the skin initiates the healing process. Treated areas will be white due to "frosting" which will be replaced by redness/ light swelling and scabbing over the next following 5-8 days. This method requires a series of treatments spaced about every 2-6 weeks. To get the best results from TCA CROSS it's recommened to combine with skin care, lasers, microneedling, and chemical peels. Treatment plan is based on skin type and severity of the scar.
