The CROSS procedure is an incredibly effective yet safe, easy, no downtime, and cost effective treatment for acne scars. CROSS stands for “Chemical Reconstruction Of Scarred Skin”. It is the most effective treatment for ice pick acne scarring.
In this procedure, a wooden applicator stick similar to a toothpick is used to apply Trichloroacetic Acid to the base and interior walls of the ice pick scar.

This treatment is essentially painless
