TCA Cross is a skin care technique, where trichloroacetic acid (TCA) is applied to shrink skin scars. The TCA Cross method is also a useful skin care technique for treating large pores. Whether scarring is due to severe acne, chicken pox or other similar skin trauma, most skin professionals find these lesions are very difficult to treat. There are very few effective cosmetic solutions. TCA Cross represents a breakthrough in this area and has shown itself to be far more effective than any of the other treatments used for scar correction.
The TCA Cross technique works by applying 100% trichloroacetic acid to the entire depressed area (scar) using a wooden applicator. This stimulates dermal thickening and collagen production which, in turn, shrinks the size of the depression. In order to achieve the best possible treatment outcome, patients have a series of six treatments, spaced 4 – 6 weeks apart. The TCA Cross method is also useful for treating large pores.
