How It Works

TCA is short for Trichloroacetic acid. TCA is a medium to deep chemical peel that has been used extensively to treat scars, wrinkles and photo aging. CROSS is an acronym for Chemical Reconstruction of Skin Scars.

TCA CROSS is a specialised treatment where specific spots of ice-pick and deep scars are treated using high concentration TCA to denature the proteins at the deeper layers of the skin where scar tissue is found.

This process stimulates collagen synthesis, skin thickening and a resultant improvement in your acne scar appearance.

Why Us

We offer synergistic treatments like Infini and Subcision + Filler to complement TCA CROSS for enhanced results.
