Advice on how my scars should be treated please?

Recommended Posts

Hi, 

So far I have tried Tca cross100%, Tca 35% peel, Salicylic 30% and microneedling at home a few years back, but then I got tired so I stopped, for some reasons now I really wanna fix them so bad. I have been searching for treatment options I have near where I live, I can only find fraxel lasel though. 

 

Any opinions on if Tca cross and Tca peel will help my situation? Thanks in advance

One session of TCA is rarely enough. You will need at least 3 rounds. For your boxcars, I suggest 100% TCA initially, then taper down to 80%, etc after evaluation.

Than you, can you draw a circle of my box scars? I can't really tell

Thank you, what about these two areas?

Also I am Asian, should I be using Retinol cream for at least 3 weeks before TCA cross?

You have a combination of boxcar and icepick scars. One on the right is mostly minor boxcars and icepicks, while the one at the bottom is hyperpigmentation (eg. redness), which will fade over time.

No, avoid using Retinol before undergoing treatment. Retinol exfoliates the skin and that will only exacerbate the skin leading to unnecessary hyperpigmentation. Instead, apply bleaching cream like Hydroquinone for 4 weeks.
