TCA Cross For Acne Scars in Delhi

TCA Cross is a skin rejuvenation treatment that causes Chemical Reconstruction of Skin Scars (Cross) using Trichloroacetic Acid’s (TCA) skin repair action. It is one of the most preferred treatment options for ice pick acne scars. At Dadu Medical Centre, Dr. Nivedita Dadu provides acne scar reduction treatments with safety and precision to help one achieve smoother skin. 
 

TCA is typically used in low concentrations to improve the appearance of facial scars and skin aging. It is the most popularly performed treatment for atrophic acne scars and is also inexpensive and safe. It helps to effectively reduce acne scars from the skin with successive sessions. 

In the TCA Cross procedure, a concentrated form of Trichloroacetic Acid is deposited on the site of atrophic scars to cause an inflammatory reaction. This reaction further boosts the production of new collagen fibers in the skin. As the new collagen is formed it starts filling the depressions on the skin caused by scars. Thus, the ultimate result is smooth, even-textured skin. 

 

The decision to perform TCA Cross depends on the type and severity of acne scarring, candidate preference, and expectations with the treatment. This procedure is unique because TCA is only applied to the scar and not the surrounding skin. It works effectively even for the deeper scars. Collagen stimulation takes at least 3-4 weeks to form and peaks at 3-4 months.

 

TCA Cross is useful in the boxcar acne scars, rolling acne scars, and ice-pick acne scars. TCA Cross can also be used to treat deep open pores and prominent pores. Treatments that can be combined with TCA Cross for acne scars include topical ret-in-oids, microneedling, fractional laser treatment, and subcision. TCA Cross can also be combined with dermal fillers and several types of laser treatments to deliver the best outcomes.

 

The Procedure
TCA Cross is a safe acne scars treatment that is performed by medical experts at Dadu Medical Centre. The treatment can take a few minutes to perform, depending on the number of scars to be treated.

  • The patient should be in a comfortable semi-recumbent position.
  • Eye covers are applied to protect them. 
  • The very first step is to clean the skin using a medical-grade cleanser. 
  • TCA is applied specifically on the scars and not on the surrounding skin. So, a very fine blunt end-point instrument is used for its application. 

 

Aftercare that one must follow
There is a downtime of about 5 to 6 days, which means the time it takes for the skin to heal. During this time candidates are not allowed to wear normal makeup or sunscreen.

  • For the initial 12 hours, the patient will experience frosting of the scar surface.
  • Skin can be red and sore but it will subside within 24 to 48 hours.
  • Small scabs are formed after 2 to 3 days. One should not pick these scabs and let them fall off naturally. That will happen after 3 to 7 days.
  • No harsh cleansers/ face washes must be used during the healing period. 
  • Generally, after 7-10 days it is okay to wash the face normally and apply make-up.
  • Apply moisturizers and antibiotics as advised by the doctor.
  • Drink plenty of water.

Most candidates require 3 to 6 treatments of TCA Cross for optimum improvement of acne scars. Treatments may be repeated at 2 to 8-week intervals over a period of 6 months.
