I have recently seen a dermatologist who checked some lesions on my arm that he used liquid nitrogen on several months ago and haven't completely disappeared. He used tca acid on them and after 7 days I have brown scabs will they peel off to leave clear skin?
Thank you for your question beauman8. TCA is a peeling agent that is used to address a number of concerns. When applied to the skin dark spots may appear darker before they get lighter. Sometimes they peel off and sometimes they are absorbed by the skin. It could take up to 2 weeks for full healing of the skin after peels from the neck down. Please follow up with your doctor for specific recommendations. Good luck!
