Can a TCA Peel Be Applied to the Upper Eyelids?

Chemical peels don't do good for upper eyelid skin tightening.
Multiple chemical peels do tighten the face skin somewhat but to get any real tightening of the upper eyelids, you would need surgery since the peels would scar the skin if you went strong enough to tighten skin there. Sorry,

Peels for eyelids
TCA can be used on both upper & lower eyelids. Usually to treat discoloration , or fine lines/wrinkles. For skin tightening of the upper eyelid, Phenol peels [which are deep peels], were reported to work & were called " chemical blepharoplasty". Make sure the peel is done by a reputable dermatologist/ oculoplastic surgeon/plastic surgeon who is experienced in the procedure
DO NOT DO YOUR OWN TCA PEEL IF THAT IS THE REASON OF THE QUESTION.
TCA peel should be done ONLY BY a QUALIFIED DOCTOR
