Does TCA work on raised scars?

Recommended Posts

Should I try putting TCA on big red raised scars that are on my shoulder and chest? Would it make them smoother and flatter. They are from cystic acne. Ive tried cryosurgery and cortisone injections which worked fairly well but still have a few left and using an acid might be cheaper and require no derma visits.

Raised scars are difficult to treat and it probably isn't worth the risk of making the scars worse by applying acid of any form to them.

Have you checked out this site for help with raised scars? http://www.keloid-scars.com/index.htm
