Specialist prescription compounded creams post TCA

I personally would use a compounded HQ cream between 6-8% pre and post peel together with vitamin A creams after the peel. 

The concentration will depend on your skin sensitivity and skin type. You really do need a tailored or customised cream given your past history of PIH following a TCA peel

I suggest seeing an expert to customize a plan for you given the degree of PIH you may or may not have.  Best, Dr. Emer.
