How often can I do a 35% TCA Peel?

I'm wanting use TCA 35% to address some texture irregularities and mild to moderate scarring. I've done two 20% TCA peels a month apart, but haven't noticed a lot of improvement. Is it ok to do 35% TCA peels a month apart to achieve my desired results?

Thanks for your query. Yes you can do 35% TCA peels one month apart for better results provided there is no sign of peeling or might end in Post inflammatory hypo pigmentation which takes a while to go. You can also alter your chemical peels with laser for evening out the texture. Hope it helps.

20% is too weak for scars. If you are using TCA for scars, my advice is to see a Board Certified Specialist. We often use 100% with extreme caution and aftercare. All the best, Dr Davin Lim. Brisbane. Australia.
