Ice-pick acne scars from cystic acne

Recommended Posts

Would this be a laser? IPL? I would love to hear feedback on what posters here feel addresses ice-pick acne scars.

Not red marks - faint ice pick acne scars.

TCA CROSS would be the best choice, it's worked wonders for many many people, unfortunately it's cheap so it doesn't get as much attention. Honestly, lasers unfortunately don't work, TCA CROSS seems to have the best results!

TCA CROSS. Make sure you find a practitioner who is familiar with the process and knows NOT to allow any of the acid to touch the sides of the scars at all. That will make the scars wider. They'll still become more shallow, but they WILL also get wider.

I did my own TCA cross in April and did notice that in one scar that I allowed the TCA to touch the sides of the scar...it became wider and shallower.

TCA Cross almost eliminated my small ice-pick scars, which were no larger than scarred pores. It did widen some boxcar scars because I used the same toothpick and the tip became saturated and expanded. Be careful!
