Peels vs laser
For general improvement of acne scars, there are many other treatment that can outperform TCA and Glycolic peels, including fractional lasers, RF, RF needling (INFINI), dermal fillers and surgical subcision. An individual assessment and treatment program gives the very best results.

Thank you for your question. It depends on how your skin responds to the sun (tends to burn, tends to tan easily) and how deep your lines and scars are. In general, TCA is a deeper peel that GCA. TCA strength can range from 20%-50% for these types of issues.
