TCA Peel to Make Skin Few Shades Lighter?

I have fairly dark tan skin naturally. I would like to lighten it just a few shades lighter. Would you recommend a TCA Peel to help me achieve my goal? I've had AHAs and Glycolic Acid Peels earlier and still continue to have them for maintenance!

TCA peels can lighten up the skin but the results are temporary. Many patients do several light TCA peels and then use a prescription bleaching cream to maintain the color. There are many concentrations of peels so be sure to go to someone who does a lot of them.
