TCA Cross – A Powerful Treatment for Acne Scars
Acne is a common skin problem that affects millions of people around the world. While many treatments are available to address active acne, the scars left behind can be challenging to treat. Dr. Qazi, a renowned cosmetic dermatologist, has introduced an innovative treatment for acne scars – TCA Cross. In this article, we will explore what TCA Cross is and how it works.
What is TCA Cross?
TCA Cross stands for Trichloroacetic Acid Chemical Reconstruction of Skin Scars. It is a minimally invasive treatment for acne scars that uses trichloroacetic acid to stimulate collagen production and promote skin rejuvenation. The acid is applied to the affected areas using a fine-tipped applicator, causing controlled damage to the skin. This stimulates the production of collagen, which helps to fill in the depressed scars and improve the overall appearance of the skin.
How Does TCA Cross Work?
TCA Cross works by stimulating the production of collagen in the affected areas. The acid causes controlled damage to the skin, which triggers the body’s natural healing response. As the skin heals, new collagen is produced, which fills in the depressed scars and improves the texture of the skin.
What are the Benefits of TCA Cross?
TCA Cross offers a number of benefits over traditional acne scar treatments. These benefits include:
- Minimally invasive – is a minimally invasive treatment that does not require any incisions or sutures.
- Safe – Is a safe treatment with minimal risk of complications.
- Quick procedure – The procedure typically takes less than an hour to complete, depending on the size of the affected areas.
- Little to no downtime – Most patients are able to return to their normal activities within a day or two of the procedure.
- Long-lasting results – Stimulates the production of collagen, which results in long-lasting results.
Who is a Good Candidate for TCA Cross?
TCA Cross is suitable for individuals who have depressed acne scars. It may not be suitable for individuals who have active acne or certain medical conditions. The best way to determine if TCA Cross is right for you is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Qazi.
What to Expect During TCA Cross Treatment
The TCA Cross procedure is performed under local anesthesia. The skin is first cleaned and prepped for the procedure. The trichloroacetic acid is then applied to the affected areas using a fine-tipped applicator. The acid is left on the skin for a few minutes, depending on the depth of the scars. The acid is then neutralized, and the skin is cleaned and covered with a dressing.
After the procedure, the treated areas may appear red and swollen. It is important to avoid direct sunlight and use sunscreen for several weeks following the procedure.
