Unfortunately once the acne has healed it can leave behind permanent scars. One of the less common, yet effective treatments for deeper pitted acne scars is known as CROSS, or the chemical reconstruction of skin scars. This procedure uses higher concentrations of Tri Chloroacetic Acid (TCA) to rebuild collagen in atrophic acne scars. TCA can either be applied over the entire face for an all over peeling effect or in concentrated areas for intense collagen reconstruction. Patients with lighter skin tones are the ideal candidates for TCA peels and will need an average of 3-5 treatments for best results.
