Chemical Peel: Q&AAsk a Question
Why Do You Have to Stop Using Retinoids Before a Chemical Peel?
Why are you required to stop using them days before a chemical peel is performed. I am going to perform a 15% TCA Peel on my face. I am indian and of light brown skin. I have already performed a TCA peel once. I have been using Tretinoin always before a peel to prep my skin for it. I just want to know why we are required to stop.
Caution Using TCA in Indian Skin
15% TCA is so mild.
Too much of a thing may be damaging
