TCA Peels for pigmentation caused by acnes?

Will TCA Peels work to reduce pigmentation caused by acnes? If it does not, what lasers or peels do you recommend to treat these type of pigmentation? Thanks!

Depending on the amount of hyperpigmentation, chemical peels would be a good start. Combining them with laser therapy will give you better results. Please see an expert. Best, Dr. Emer

Yes, low dose. With HQ

Yes, lots of ways to treat PIH from acne. TCA with HQ or Picosure laser or other Q switch lasers. IT does take time, but the brown marks will eventually fade after 2-3 months. Dr Davin Lim. Brisbane, Australia.
