Chemical peelRisks and complications

AHA risks

There are relatively minor risks associated with AHA peels, and minimal chance of any long-term problems.

TCA risks

In the case of TCA peels the risks are described as:

  • Pain during the time of the treatment, but essentially discomfort during the recovery.
  • Skin scarring, in particular was deeper chemical peels attempting to correct the blinds or acne scarring.
  • Decreased pigmentation in the treatment areas, in relation with deeper chemical peels.
  • Increased pigmentation in the treatment areas, more likely in the case of darker skins and post-treatment sun exposure.
  • Insufficient correction requiring repeated treatments.
  • Herpes eruptions leading to infection and scarring.
