You may experience mild, temporary burning and itching. Immediately following your peel, you can apply makeup and return to your usual activities. Most will have no outward evidence of the peel, but those with fair skin may have a red complexion for a day.

Medium depth peels can be achieved with a variety of chemicals. TCA (trichloro acetic acid) is the most common. Jessner’s solution, glycolic acid, salicylic acid, and other agents are also used. These peels are applied by our physicians. Medium peels may be repeated every three to six months for optimal results.

They may also be used in some people with dark brown skin, although the risk of discoloration is higher.
