Abstract:
Background and Objective: To evaluate the added efficacy of 50% TCA CROSS in treating atrophic acne scars, study participants in one group underwent microneedling plus subcision using 50% TCA CROSS, whereas participants in a different group underwent microneedling plus subcision.
Method: In a randomised controlled open-labelled prospective study, microneedling, subcision, and 50% TCA CROSS were compared to microneedling and subcision alone on 80 patients attending the skin outpatient department of either sex.
Result: Among patients in grade 3, 30% in group 1 and 35% in group 2 exhibit a remarkable 2 Grade improvement in scar grade. Following therapy, 85% and 70% of grade 4 patients in groups 1 and 2, respectively, demonstrated an excellent improvement in scar grade.
Conclusion: Good results for grade 3 and 4 atrophic acne scars in group 1 and 4 was seen. Patients in both groups tolerated it well, with no failures. No significant difference was seen between the groups' improvements, casting doubt on 50% TCA CROSS's efficacy for atrophic acne scars. For a more complete assessment, more study with a larger sample size is needed. Patients can have less downtime and cost-effective treatment.
