Is TCA Peel Safe While on Pain Killers Like Vicaden?

Doctor Answers (2)

Pain meds are safe for peels

+1

In fact, a true medium depth chemical peel such as a combination peel with Jessner's and TCA 35% can be very uncomfortable. I will sometimes prescribe pain medications for patients to take prior to the the treatment.

I hope that helped.

TCA peels safe while on pain meds as long as you aren't applying it yourself

+1

TCA peels are safe while on any pain meds and often are needed for the 30-40% TCA peels for the first day to help make it more comfortable, but don't do the TCA peel yourself at home.
