25% TCA peels may be repeated at 1-3 month intervals depending upon your response and healing rate.  In general, I do not recommend performing a 25% TCA peel at home, as complications may occur that require physician intervention.

I do not recommend that TCA peels been performed at home. TCA peels are great for treating discolorations on the skin. We typically do not need to repeat a TCA peel in our office for at least 3-6 months.
