Is TCA CROSS with subcision or Intracel RF more effective for severe acne scars? (photo)
I am considering between 2 combination treatments: A) subcision + TCA cross B) Intracel + Duet RF for my severe acne scars. I would appreciate advice about the effectiveness of these treatments for my type of scars. Thank you!
You are right in that you will need a combination of several modalities to attain the best results for your scarring - the presence of the different types of scars here necessitate that.
You appear to have possibly tethered rolling scars, with several ice pick scars, so the choice of TCA Cross with subcision and fillers would do you well. The use of lasers after the initial TCA/subcision can further improve the undulations in the skin.
The use of radio-frequency needling does have its place, but each practitioner will have his preference in managing various issues.
Do have you skin examined in person if you would like the best advice on the management of the scars.
Cheers, and Merry Christmas,
