50% TCA cross experiment

Recommended Posts

I don't think 25% TCA CROSS is going to do much. The reason higher strengths are used for this is because of the great ability to produce collagen when a small wound is created in the scar itself by a sharpened wooden object after it has been soaked in TCA. However you could try your first TCA CROSS with 25% TCA, just so you can geet used to the procedure itself and understanding the importance of applying the toothpick or whatever you use to the scarred area only.

Looks like you got a nice improvement after one TCA CROSS. after another one or 2 more CROSS applications your scar should have filled in very well. Keep it up.

Hi Pizzicato, Wow! Based on your day 14 pictures, the scars that you crossed really do look noticeably more shallow. I'm impressed. Congratulations! And thanks again for sharing your ongoing progress pictures with us.

Pizcato,

When I asked how old is that scar, I am talking about how long did u have it before you did the TCA Cross?

Pizzicato!

Congrats on this improvement. It really looks great! I may try this at some point, so your documentation on the process is incredibly valuable.

I was wondering how the treated area feels now, does it feel smoother, can you you feel a depression still, or does the tissue feel thickened at all?

Thanks and congrats again!

:-)

Denise,

Fantastic results... could you define that smile.gif ie: have your scars dissappeared? less prominent? percentage improvement. How old are you? and what kind of scars did you have fantastic results with? What colour is your skin?

I've done all my (4) crosses with 50% tca and I've always gotten fantastic results.  Personally, I don't think using 100% tca is necessary at all.
