Thanks for your query. You should wait for at least a month after your TCA peel before doing any other procedure or look for the peeling. Once the peeling stops, you can go for other procedures. If you go in for any procedure before the skin is properly healed otherwise it can cause post inflammatory hypo pigmentation.  Hope it helps.

4-6 weeks.

Firstly I suggest seeing the same Specialist, this way your acne scar revision journey is a lot smoother as different scars can be treated at the same time. I often combine TCA with CO2 or microneedling RF in the same procedure. Having said that, if you had your ice pick scars treated with TCA CROSS, I personally would wait at least 4 weeks before re-treating those areas with another method. Like Dr Emer, I combine PRP and Infini RF in the one session. This gives better results, and faster healing times. All the best, Dr Davin S. Lim. Brisbane. Australia.

Take Time to Heal--TCA Cross and Microneedling/prp

This can be variable for each patient's healing time. I suggest allowing complete healing after TCA Peel before undergoing a microneedling treatment. I always add prp to microneedling in combination with lasers for best results with acne scarring. Please see an expert. Best, Dr. Emer
