  1. I have not idea how I got this deep pitted pore. Can TCA help reduce this severity of this type of scar? It's very small but it's deep. Does anyone know a good practitioner in Northern NJ to help correct this? Thanks
  2. Hi everyone. I am planning to do a TCA cross. Just want to know the exact procedure how to do this. Should the TCA be rinsed off after apllied to the scar? Please let me know. THank you. The scar location is at the nose.
  3. Has anyone tried this method of TCA cross? Think this works better than other methods (ex. using a toothpick)? For the DIYs what method do you use? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uxJMnWYV2mE What size (gauge) needle do you think this is? Perhaps smaller would be better/safer (especially for scarred pores). Any amazon links? Thanks!
  4. hello everyone. i have been reading these forums for around 3 months and decided to treat myself with the TCA cross method. i was desperate and couldn't find anyone in my area that did it. i read enough and felt like i was educated on the proper application and risks. i bought the tca cross kit from julia's website. i was going to have laser resurfacing but because i still have active acne and am still on medication, i was told i'd have to wait till i was acne free (yeah, never then) and off
  5. What would be better , a Q tip or toothpick for scars ? I read somewhere Q tip for the bigger ones and toothpick for the smaller ones (mainly ice pick scars)..... also does it matter if you get a little outside the scar ,like around the edges? I would think that would help even it out more? hmmm..
  6. Today i got tca cross done by a dermatologist in vancouver. i was charged 280 for a test spot of 3 scars. if there is improvement i will be going back for a full face in a few weeks. The only problem was she used 35%. Isnt this too weak for cross? now im scared i just wasted my money because she didnt use 80%-100%. Has anyone else used 35% for cross and seen results? Also i have to go back tomorrow so she can "dig the dead skin out" ...iv never heard of anyone else doing this. she also put tape
  7. Hi everyone. I went to the derm the other day to talk about acne scar treatments and set up an appointment for a TCA Cross treatment. I hope it will help some! I was wondering how others experiences were with this treatment and also the healing time. He said about 5 days.. I sure hope it is 5 days because I have something big coming up about 6 days after the treatment!! Thank you!
  8. UPDATE: I will not continue with TCA cross or any type of peels. I feel like the improvement was minimal and some actually got worse. The very very long healing time only adds to my stress and i have accepted living with my icepicks.
  9. Hi everyone, I am a 21 year old Asian-Indian origin female struggling from moderate-severe acne scars. I first battled moderate acne for years before going on a low dosage of accutane (10 mg) for four months after which my breakouts stopped. I haven't had a new pimple in months now (yeeeeaas, thankfully) but I have horrid horrid acne scars all over my cheeks. These are almost impossible to conceal with makeup so I had decided to visit a dermatologist who could help me get rid of these using
  10. I did the TCA cross (100%) on the 1st of February. All of the scabs are now off. It seems the best results are from the spots that the scabs remained on the longest. Three of them stayed on until the past couple of days, and they are almost level with the rest of my face already. I have some improvement with some of the others, some not so much. I am going to Cross again mid-March. I had quite a bit of redness in the scars when the scabs came off, but they have faded rather well. Is there a
  11. Hi guys Sorry for posting a bit in recent times, I just need a last word of advice now before I go ahead with procedures for my scarring, so this will hopefully be my last post until skin updates in the coming months. I recently posted on here asking for advice on what I should do for my scars. Two of you experienced members suggested I look into TCA peels and the derminator to help with my scarring, also suggesting fillers would NOT be worth it, as my scars are too shallow. I then w
  12. Hi guys. I was wondering, is there anyone here that has tried TCA Cross or needles for nose scar? Anyone with success stories? I tried TCA peels and for me there is a very little improvement. For needling, I am really very afraid to try this on my nose as it might make more damage. I have done 3 sessions of TCA Peels on my nose, using 10% strength as I am afraid to use higher concentrations. Any thoughts? Thank you!
  13. I want to try TCA cross for ice pick scars I have. I have been using MUAC TCA peels upto 30%, which is the highest it can go. What is the most recommendable place to get solution for TCA Cross? I was thinking of amazon. Would this be okay? I would appreciate your response. Thanks.
  14. Hey all! Newbie here, but nice to meet y'all. I'm embarking on a new journey to improve my scars. I thought I'd start a thread to document my process. I'll my best to keep it updated. I'm hoping my experience helps you in some way. My scars I've had some form of scarring for most of my life. First, I have linear scars caused by someone who scratched up my face when I was a kid with long fingernails. Yep, childhood sucks. Second, I have mild to moderately depresses scars from adult acne during
