In my experience, TCA peels work great for hyperpigmented skin in generally light skinned individuals. I would go for a 35% peel though. These seems to have minimal complications and work s very well. As always, meeting with a dermatologist or facial plastic surgeon who has experience in chemical peels willl better determine if you are a candidate and what complications might be applicable.
