I just had TCA Cross done

You're mileage may very since my skintone isn't as healthy as yours,

They spots will scab, the scab phase is misleading because the scab can make it look completely filled in.

After the scabs fall off they will be red for a few weeks, for even longer then that they will be more irritable than the rest of you skin. I.e. they will turn redder than the rest of your skin when you are stressed.

I caution you that TCA cross can make scars worse, whether they look worse at this stage isn't really indicative. Since you are someone who seems to have your scarring blend very well naturally I would warn you that cross may not give results that are neccesarily what you are looking for.

I would make a analogy like this, imagine that your scars are potholes on the road, the new scar tissue from TCA cross may fill in the spots to a extent, but you might not like the look of asphalt.
