TCA Peel for Crow's Feet

Shallow to moderate crow’s feet should be treated with a moderate-strength chemical peel. Either a TCA or Jessner’s peel will work in this instance.

Exfoliating within a month of a TCA peel can spoil the outcome of the treatment, so hold off on scrubbing, even if it's part of your daily routine. To encourage an even peel, apply a mild AHA or Retin-A cream for the two weeks leading up to treatment.

The results of a TCA or Jessner’s chemical peel last about six months. The peel can be reapplied after about eight weeks if more dramatic results are desired.

Recovery from a TCA peel is much like recovering from a bad sunburn. The skin will peel and discolor for up to two weeks.
