Can I do a TCA peel before my dermabrasion surgery?

Would I be able to do a 30 percent tca peel before my scheduled dermabrasion? Would it enhance the dermabrasion procedure ? I want to do it 2 months before. Thank you in advance

Be guided by your specialist.

Personally if you are undertaking full on dermabrasion down to the papillary- reticular dermis, then there is no point doing a superficial 30% TCA peel as the dermabrasion procedure will address everything the peel would. Be guided by your specialist performing the procedure. All the best, and stay safe. Dr Davin Lim > BRISBANE. Australia.
