good candidate for TCA cross?

Recommended Posts

Heya guys,

I have about 10 icepick scars, along with some rolling ones on my cheek.

The attached pic shows 2x 1-2mm icepicks along my cheekbone.

Would these scars be suited for TCA cross?

The scarring on my other cheek is actually visible without closer inspection, but it doesn't belong in this thread.

thanks in advance.

uhh no it doesnt. i truly do not see any deep ice pick scars. maybe enlarged pores at the most. tca crossing is a invasive scar revision procedure and if you mess up or get unwanted results (making the scar bigger), it could be devastating.

there aren't really any alternative solutions to dealing with icepicks though, right?

is TCA cross that dangerous? I could try on one scar.

try on one scar and tell us how it goes. I am going to do the same on an isolated scar near my sideburn (whcih you cant notice since its near my hair).

no needling doesnt work at all for icepicks

Well, I did give needling a go, and I will post pics shortly.

One thing I can say, is that with this icepick, I can insert the needle all the way in, without applying much pressure. What does this mean?
