TCA Peel: Q&AAsk a Question

It is fine to do a TCA peel after having been on Retin A or Tazorac, just stop them 1-2 days ahead of time but even if the patient didn't stop them ahead, it is still fine. Be sure to use a good cortisone lotion and a sunscreen afterwards.
In most people, a 7% TCA peel is unlikely to cause any complications (scarring, discoloration) even after Tazorac. You may want, however, to discontinue the Tazorac for a couple of days prior to your peel. Good luck.
