Is this a deep or shallow scar?

Recommended Posts


Hello! I know this is a terrible picture, but I have been struggling with this scar and another on my other cheek that is very similar to it. I have had Fraxel lasers (yeah, that was a big mistake), that didn't do anything, and temporary fillers, which made me pretty happy with my skin, but sadly, are obviously temporary. I'm considering TCA cross or maybe micro needling for my two scars, but I've read differing opinions on whether they're helpful for scars like this. I know this is a terrible picture (sorry! I couldn't find better lighting!), but I would really appreciate some input on if I'd be making a mistake pursuing TCA cross!

Point an LED flashlight from an angle while shooting. This will capture the shadow thereby accentuating the scar.

If you had pretty good success with fillers in the past, I would recommend getting Bellafill, which is a permanent filler.
