Moderate to deep TCA peels take a week to heal. So you will want to be in town for a couple weeks before vacationing to be certain it is healing well. Lighter peels can heal faster, but why risk it? Sun exposure needs to be avoided during the healing time, so outdoor activities should be limited until you are fully healed. Even dilute TCA can cause deep peels, so be certain to seek a qualified profession with lots of experience using TCA. Do not try this at home.
