I mixed the TCA with water 50-50 trying to get a strong enough blend.. I put it on the scars, no burning... added a bit more TCA and put it on the scars... Not much burning.. Made a stronger blend and uses a toothpick to put it inside the hole/scar... (was difficult because deep and puffy) one of the other scars started burning, so I washed it with water and left everything alone...
Looked really bad for about a week... Then the scars all peeled.. I say one of the 3 scars disappeared 95%... the other 2 only 30% or maybe 30-40% better than before... The deep hole-like scar improved a whole lot... like 65% No discoloration now, no puffiness, just an indent, and significantly smaller at that
Anyway, I would like to try it on my face (I have a few scars that could use smoothing out) but afraid of the downtime (its really much more obvious than needling.. So I think I will try on 1 or 2 scars on my face next and if that goes well, I will do it on some of the other scars I have. No problems on my arm, but you never know, so I'm trying to be careful

Im gonna try something crazy. Im gonna dermastamp my face in 3 weeks. Then do another 20% peel 3 weeks after that....dermastamp 3 weeks later...then 3 weeks after that try a 30% peel. Maybe if I attack my skin on 2 fronts while still giving it a chance to heal I can actually get some results.

Hi,i understand where you're coming from because of course it's best to be safe than sorry when you're dealing with powerful stuff like 100% tca,but to 'find a proffesional' who actually is willing to treat you with something as reasonably simple and cost effective as the tca cross method is easier said than done im afraid,,especially in the uk. I'm still on the lookout for a good derm who is willing to perform either tca cross or punch tecniques but i'm coming up with nish.The only derm/surgeon ive managed to find that does (i believe) do punch excision is a 'dr langtry' who is based in newcastle (im in manchester) & who charges £200 for a consult. Crazy money imo. And so the search goes on..... Btw the person in the link who said they had a bad experience with tca cross didnt put any photo's up of how they looked BEFORE treatment,,also his/her first post on there was only 1 day after they did the treatment.You have to give these things time.
I'll just point you towards this http://www.acne.org/...ster-with-pics/ Please get a professional.
