Should I do another TCA peel to correct these burn scar spots? This time I'll be more careful just to the area that has the brown/red scar.
Another TCA Peel to Correct Previous Burn Scars?
Doctor Answers (3)
These are deep burns from self administered TCA Peel.
I blame the company selling you the TCA, Remember you are applying ACID to your face, which has great potentials for complications even in experienced hand.
Avoid more damage from self-doctoring
If I am understanding you correctly, you caused these scars from doing an at-home TCA peel. It is unfortunate that TCA is available online as we experts are seeing a plethora of complications from such self administered peels. Please see a dermatologist or plastic surgeon who performs a lot of peels and lasers (and therefore understands wound healing) to minimize these scars.
Don't do it.
I would strongly advise you to refrain from any further peels on the red area. It is more likely to make it more red. If and when the redness subsides, I would only then consider another peel to lighten the brown area. In the mean time you could try a bleaching cream such as triluma and definite sunblock.
