Hello, it is really too early to say. Collagen takes about three weeks to fill in but I am assuming the first layer of the scab has fallen off? What people don’t tell you is that there will be a second smaller scab that will follow after you lose the first one. I believe that you are on that stage.  At night, apply aquaphor or Vaseline to the area. Later follow with a lightening cream to reduce hyperpigmentation. In the next few weeks, you should gradually see the difference.

TCA CROSS can make things worse before the become better. Dermatologists all say to do multiple treatments to fill in the holes. Have several more treatments and reassess to see if there's improvement.
