TCA CROSS Treatment for Acne Scars at Fine Dermatology

TCA CROSS (Trichloroacetic Acid Chemical Reconstruction of Skin Scars) is a specialized procedure offered at Fine Dermatology, specifically designed to address the challenge of acne scars. This innovative treatment targets the scars themselves, promoting collagen production and skin regeneration for noticeable improvements in texture and appearance.



TCA CROSS involves the precise application of a high concentration of trichloroacetic acid directly to the base of each scar. This acid solution acts as a catalyst for collagen production, initiating a process of skin remodeling and regeneration. By reconstructing the underlying structure of the scar, TCA CROSS raises the depressed areas and smooths out the skin's surface, resulting in a more even skin texture and improved appearance.

Customized Approach for Specific Scar Types

In cases where multiple scar types or complex concerns are present, Dr. Fine devises customized treatment plans that may involve combining TCA CROSS with advanced laser therapies such as Fraxel, CO2, or Excel V. Additionally, she may incorporate techniques like subcision, which helps to release scar tissue and promote smoother skin texture. This comprehensive approach addresses the diverse aspects of acne scarring, maximizing the potential for significant improvement.

Dr. Fine is regarded as one of the country's leading experts in acne scar treatment. With meticulous evaluation and personalized approaches, she ensures that each patient receives the most suitable treatment plan. From TCA CROSS to advanced laser therapies, her comprehensive methods address diverse acne scar types with exceptional results.
