TCA CROSS for closely situated scarred pores?

Recommended Posts

I wanted to know if anyone's had success treated scarred pores that are very close together (1-2mm apart) with TCA cross? If so, can you give some details? Thanks!

Hello. I have a problem with scarred pores on my nose and have recently treated them with TCA cross (will post pics soon!) I haven't seen much of a difference, but the nose is a hard area to treat since it's mostly cartilage. I've also treated small scars that were a bit larger than a the scarred pores, and they've almost completely disappeared. The areas of my face that responded well were the bridge of my nose and my upper cheeks. My nose and forehead didn't have any results that I can see yet, although my forehead seems to have thinner skin than most people do.

I would try it on one or two pores that are NOT next to one another....the last thing you would want is further scarring that would make 2 pores into one larger scar....and see if it helps. Give it at least 5 weeks to see results.

do not use tca cross to treat large pores or any pore problem. it will make your pores worst

Is this from experience? Have you heard from others?

Please share more details.

thanks.

What if one were to TCA CROSS a pore, but left alone the other scarred pores in close proximity? Would you say this is still the risk?

I have done this HOTH.. many years ago. now mind you I was younger and I was not nearly as smart as I am today. I had no post treatment program, my diet was poor and quite frankly I was pretty unhealthy.. but it did not help me one bit. Not sure why this is. I have seeen people get great results with tca. you figure if it can fix a scar cant it fix a scared pore?? its a scar right. so I do think back and wonder if it was now would things be different. Just trying to give you both sides of the coin in my case. I personaly feel alot of factors play into this stuff. its never just as simple as. "It did not work for me so it does not work"

I am using needling for my scared pores now. jury is still out as I just completed my first serious session of individual needling a few days ago. and only just completed my second session of rolling. But I have alot of scared pores and will keep you posted on my progress in the weeks to come.

sorry I cant give you better answers on the tca. all I can add is if you try it, just use quality topicals, eat right, take your vitamins ect.. put yourself in the best possible situation to achieve results.

good luck.. :)

well im guessing tca would only work on pores that have scar tissue ... the tca would break it down and the pore could revert back to its orgianl posititon i guess ... if you just have large pores due to geneitcs then im not sure that tca would work - although it may increase collagen and elastin which could make the pores a lil smaller. i was told by a skin specialsit that my pores had scar tissue - she used a dermascope to see it

Hmmm.... I wonder how different scar tissue looks under a dermascope as compared to regular tissue. I wonder how much is left up to opinion. Where did you find this skin specialist? Are they an esthetician or a doc or what?

A dermatoscopes works by magnifying the epidermis and the papillary dermis of the skin up to 10 times the original size. This helps a physician evaluate the skin for any signs of damage and possible melanoma. In fact it is one of the best tools available to diagnose melanoma. Depending on the experience of the user, the dermatoscope can help diagnosis up to 49% more cases of melanoma.

While the dermatoscope was originally intended solely for the purpose of diagnosing melanoma, it can also be used to diagnose other skin diseases such as xeroderma pigmentosum, folliculitis, scar tissue and vascular supply, dermatofibroma, lentigo maligna, and a variety of nevi. In the pursuit of perfection, some modified dermatoscopes have been able to capture information about the hair such as growth rate, density, and diameter. Dermatoscopes tend be used less on those with darker skin since they have a far less melanoma rate. However, despite the fact that darker skin individuals are less common to contract melanoma, it is not impossible. Therefore these individuals should also be evaluated by a dermatoscope.
