TCA peel Can Be Done After Juvederm


Usually the skin heals very well and very fast after a Juvederm injection. A period of two weeks is sufficient to allow for that healing. Doing a TCA peel at that point is relatively safe. However, it depends on the strength of the peel. I would limit it to 35% TCA at the most and also would check to make sure the lower eyelid has good tone. This can be checked by pulling the lower eyelid away from the eye by 3mm and letting it snap back. If it snaps back fast, the tone is excellent. If it does not snap back or does so very slowly then do not have a TCA peel in the lower eyelid.

TCA peels are fine to do after Juvederm around the eyes


TCA peels do great around the eyes and it doesn't matter when you get the Juvederm injected beforehand. The peels usually run around  $350 each and are so helpful.

TCA following hyaluronic fillers to tear trough should be ok


As long as the TCA is a superficial peel, this should not effect the juvederm or the results achieved. If,  however, you have thick or pigmented skin that is markedly improved by the peel, there is a potential for a slightly bluish hue to the skin subsequent to the peel.

Chemical peel and juvederm use


Having a tca peel several weeks or even the same day as a juvederm innjection treatment should be ok.   The peel will not be deep enough to cause problems with the filler.
