TREATMENT OF ACNE SCARRING
For deep acne scarring, we use a combination of subcision, 100% TCA (CROSS method) and either an aggressive treatment with a 70% glycolic-30% TCA peel or 4 to 6 treatments of iPixel.
SUBCISION FOR ACNE SCARRING
Subcision uses a special nokor needle to untether a bound down scar created by fibrous bands left over from cystic acne. The skin is numbed with local lidocaine injections, the needle is used to break up the fibrous bands and the bruises that form are actually used to elevate the scar from its previous position. Ice is held to control the swelling and the procedure may leave bruising and swelling for three to seven days.
CROSS METHOD FOR ICE PICK SCARS
TCA CROSS is a nice technique where high concentration (100% TCA) is placed into a deep acne scar (usually referred to as an ice pick scar). It has been found to be an effective treatment option for ice pick scars, though it usually leaves scabs for about 2 weeks in the treated areas. 100% TCA is commonly placed deep into ice pick scars in a precise, pinpoint fashion. Multiple treatment sessions are necessary for best results. After the individual deep scars are improved the results are discussed with the patient whether a milder concentration TCA peel, 4 to 6 sessions of iPixel, or an aggressive Plasma Resurfacing treatment would be the best option for overall textural improvement.
Dr. Khrom has a special affinity for these procedure because it was acne in her youth that influenced her decision to be a doctor in the field of dermatology. With an understanding of all available solutions, results are far and beyond what many expect. From the beginning to the final step of your journey, Dr.Khrom will restore your face and self-confidence.
