TCA Peel for Sun Damaged Olive Skin?

I have olive skin with light sun damage, brown freckles, uneven skin tone. Is a TCA peel a good solution for me?

A TCA peel sounds like it would be a good treatment for you. I personally would not go higher than a 20% TCA for your skin type, or there is a greater risk of darkening the skin temporarily (postinflammatory hyperpigmentation). I would find a doctor with experience peeling people with your skin tone.

Good luck.
