there are some pics in the faq.

here are pictures from member Hellzangel's gallery (i hope he doesn't mind the pics being used like this). these are classic icepicks.

here are pics from member Costorm. most of these are rolling/boxcar type, but a few are like very large icepicks (they have sharp edges). like halfway between an icepick and a rolling scar. basically the icepicks have sharp edges.

here are my pics, my icepics have basically filled in (thanks to tca 100% 4X) but you can see some rolling/boxcar type scars which TCA did not help at all.

Hi,

I used to have icepick scars and I had punch-floats to remove them. It's a simple, low cost procedure that completely removed the scars. I really don't understand why more people don't opt to just have them removed?

honestly i agree with Meusveta, you should get them punch excised or other punch techniques. 2 months is nowhere near enough time for TCA.

however, if you have many many icepicks it may be impractical to have them excised. in which case TCA is a better bet.

yes you can find doctors to perform tca for maybe $100-$300 per session. TCA would probably be about the same cost as punches if done by a professional. the real cost of tca is month after month of looking like a red faced monster.

one tca session is unlikely to do anything for your scarring. i only saw results after 4 treatments (still healing 3 months after my last one).
