Are TCA Peels good for acne scarring, ice pick scars, etc by Dr. Philip Young? TCA peels can be used for full face resurfacing or spot treatments for acne scar treatment. For Full face chemical peeling, you can improve ice pick scars and box scars. I typically add dermabrasion to medium depth TCA peels for more benefit. Also, I use stronger strength TCA (trichloroacetic acid) peels for ice pick scars to help them raise up. I like to also incorporate fat injections, subcision to elevate depressed scars. I think fat injections are a step up from subcision which adds a layer of tissue under the scars for more benefit, more vascularity to help your scars heal, and to elevate scars, etc. I have many videos for you to watch and pages to read on our website. Here is a specific video on the TCA CROSS Method. You have to scroll down to where the videos are and it will be the first one. Here is the link to the YouTube Video on TCA CROSS Method by Dr Philip Young. One of the exciting new approaches that we would like to talk about is our new Acne Scar Vitalizer Treatment. This multilayered approach could transform this segment of medicine that treats acne scars.
