TCA for freckles

TCA and freckles
Yes, TCA can be very effective for freckles, however treatments such as Fraxel-IPL have faster recovery times. Combining Fraxel 1927 with IPL can realistically remove 90% of freckles in the one sitting, if IPL alone were to be used, 2-3 sessions. TCA at 30% - one session, but the recovery time will be a week. Freckles, as you know are recurrent, and with Brisbane's high UV index, especially coming into Summer, a few will re appear. All the best,
