I had a salicylic face peel and 100% TCA on 3 ice pick scars. When is it safe to resume breastfeeding?

How many days are the absorbed chemicals present in my bloodstream and breastmilk?

TCA peels for Ice pick scars

The answer is immediately. Sal. acid at this concentration will not be absorbed into your blood stream. Once TCA goes white- its done. Namely protein coagulation has been achieved. Yes, TCA CROSS is the best option for ice pick scars. Good move.
