tca corss...i did it!

hey everyone! my tca 50% arrived about 5 days ago. today, I tried to do CROSS to have the best possible improvement on my scars. so I used a sharpened wooden tothpick. first I dipped the toothpick into the tca and then pressed it into the scared area. but I think, I made a mistake: THe touthpick touched the edges of the scars, too! is that a big problem?? thanx for any given answer!

I got it outside a couple of my scars the first time and thankfully it didn't seem to affect it any.

When I did this, the TCA that got outside the scar made it bigger temporarily, but it healed fine within a couple months.

The only problem I've had with getting a little on the edge of the scar is that I get a little ring of discoloration around the scar, but it fades within a few weeks. You don't want to keep doing that, though, or you risk permanent hyperpigmentation. Do be careful.
