Question:

I just had my first TCA chemical peel and loved the results. How long do I need to wait before I undergo the next one?

Answer:

With a lighter TCA chemical peel, in the order of 10-15%, they can be repeated every three-six months.  Deeper peels that are used for more stubborn and deeper wrinkling and sun damage are in the order of 25-30% and it is best to wait approximately one year before additional peels are considered.  Typically, deeper peels also have a much more lasting result, generally in the order of many years and for that reason it is not necessary to have an additional peel in the first few years.
