section of the forum is dedicated to discussions addressing injectable fillers including Restylane, Perlane, Juvederm, Radiesse, Sculptra, Silicone, Artefill, or other office-based injectable filler, except for the management of acne scarring (See Acne/Acne Scarring Forum).
I was reading yesterday some random skincare related sites, in particular one concerning acne scars and there was something that I found curious.
People were discussing their results with TCA Cross (BTW, never had it done myself, nor would dare to -it requires super experienced hands!) and there were many people warning someone else not to get TCA Cross on the nose. I mean, there were like 5 posters or more that seemed adamant about TCA Cross on the "holes" of the nose not just not working, but making the holes worse. Someone even mentioned that the holes in the nose actually got more stretched with TCA, even if applied only in the right spot (well, that was what it was said) and then they went on with comments on how the skin of the nose and the one of the rest of the face reacted in totally different ways.
It was puzzling reading that. Is is true that TCA Cross works differently for the nose -as in not working ok?
hi, i've used it on the nose among other places without a problem. however, you have to be extremely careful just treating any pores. i use CROSS very sparingly and diligently. o/w you can worsen areas, not just the nose. bottom line: don't get crazy trying to treat pores. best, sml
Thanks for the reply! I now wonder if these people who had problems with the "holes" in their noses had them because they were actually trying to treat pores and that they used TCA in pores that maybe were too close, or in too many... Hugs!
a) using CROSS on ANYTHING is something dangerous and to be extremely careful about
b) not just any pore can be treated by it: one must be careful because among all apores, only some pores can/should be treated?
Yes, CROSS is dangerous for the inexperienced individual. Second, pores require a more diligent treatment with more conservative expectations. You can't have anything drip off the tip of the applicator or you risk worsening the situation. That being said, I generally do no treat many pores.
