tca cross questions

Recommended Posts

i just used my first tca cross peel 2 days ago, because my scars were very very wide, not like ice pick scars, i had to lay the toothpicks kinda flat on my face. On the 2nd day, the spots that i used the peel on became a brownish color, and looked slightly burned. Today is day 3, and it still looks quite burned, i did use a neutralizer solution after appying the tca cross as well. Is this normal? or did i do something wrong...

i neva done TCA cross, but i did do a full face TCA peel,

it did make my skin brown/red/orangey sorta colour, this just peeled off within 7-10 days.

most people who TCA cross get a whitish looking scab though, perhaps you used a lower percentage

Sorry I just tried it myself today so I don't know. When you did the cross, did you have the white frosting effect?

yeah that lasted for a bit, and was gone the next day, my skin does look somewhat burned now, with the brownish redish color, and its peeling off as well..

I don't quite remember all the details, but Cross was successful for treating icepicks and boxcars and it sounds like you have rolling scars.
