TCA peel for Asian skin
When applied appropriately, lighter TCA peels can be safe and effective in Asian skin. In general, I would not use TCA stronger than 20% in Asian skin. Even with the ligher solutions (10%), there is still an associated risk of (usually) temporary darker, blotchy pigmentation and scarring (very unlikely but still possible, particularly with the 20%). You simply need to be aware of this possibility. Since you have never had a 15% TCA peel before, the solution should be neutralized a little earlier in the event that your skin is particularly sensitive to the chemical peeling agent.
