I don't know if the brown spots appearing after frosting from 25% tca peel are burns or would they peel off? (Photo)

Protect your skin, use moisturiser, prevent infection, sun protect.
25% a little too strong - safe for home peels. Regardless, the job now is to HEAL your skin. Use a moisturiser like QV or Vaseline, preferably some with antibiotic cover. Once helped make sure you sun protect with SPF++++++ and hats, you will have skin darkening over the next few months. This can be faded with HQ. All the best, and above all Stay Safe. Dr Davin Lim.

Thanks for your query. It is absolutely normal to get scabs after tca peels. The scabs will fall off giving a little uplift for the scars but it takes time. Do not scratch the scabs as it will result in hypo pigmentation. Just apply moisturizer and proper sun block and let it settle on its own. Hope it helps.

This is totally normal and the brown will simply peel off. Follow your doctors guidelines and you will be just fine. Take care, Dr Commons
