Facial scars: Is TCA peel right for me?
When it comes to scars from acne or otherwise I typically require a personalized consultation. We have so reliable and safe options for facial (and body) scars including TCA and other chemical peels as well as lasers and microneedling. Whether or not a 20% TCA is safe for a patient to do at home is questionable. My suggestion would be to have a consultation with a licensed or certified practioner from whom you have gotten a referral for. At our practice we customize our consultations to meet the unique needs of our individual patients and have strict safety guidelines and safety protocols.Hope this helps. Good luck.
Thank you for your question mrs.torres.
Chemical peels are used to enhance the appearance of the face. TCA is a prescription-strength product that should be applied by a licensed medical professional. For my patients with acne scars I find that fractional CO2 lasers work best. Please consult with
a doctor for specific recommendations. Good luck!
