TCA Peel: Q&AAsk a Question
Will my Skin Ever Heal After a TCA Peel?
I am in my 60s, 7 months ago I had a TCA peel at the same time as having a face lift. My skin continues to be red, raw and irritated on my cheeks (where the doctor admitted he treated it agressively). Sun screen, moisturizer, and makeup irritate the skin more, so I can't wear them at all. My extremely thin and fragile skin tries to heal but only produces white keratin "stuff" (not skin) that gets mushy when wet & crusty when dry. Will my skin ever heal back to normal skin?

Agree with Dr. Morgan.
