For those who have done CROSS

Recommended Posts

I am thinking about having this done professionally. I want to know how long the PIH (Redness) lasts.

I know it can vary, but I'm just looking for general amount of time.

I don't want to read the entire cross thread -- I read it years ago and it's so long. I just want to know how long the redness lasts (usually).

Thanks.

Maybe two weeks max, or even less. However, it all depends on how you heal.

I personally do not like tca cross because of the high risk of HYPOpigmentation and making the scars wider and larger.

Hi Anti-Em

For me the scabs lasted about 2 weeks. The redness lasted about 1 1/2 -2 months. I only had a few treated so it wasnt too noticable. They remained widened for about 2-3 months and now they look about the same. Didnt really notice a difference with the couple of treatments that I had done. Probably more would be needed to acheive improvement I guess or I just dont respond to cross. I honestly would only treat a few to start with just incase you dont like the end result.

Hypopigmentation? Really? I never knew that was a risk, but I guess it makes sense since it's a deep "peel."

I am concerned about it making the scars wider. I have heard that.

That's not too bad. Regular PIH from acne lasts like 6 months and that would be annoying.

I do plan on only treating a few to test it out.
