TCA peels for hyperpigmentation on the BACK?

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I feel fortunate not to have keloids or raised scarring, but I have a LOT of hyperpigmentation on my back. From the bottom of my neck to the small of my back.

My skin is very fair, so the spots are very noticeable. In recent times, I've only been getting 3 or 4 active cysts on an occasional basis (hope it keeps up). The problem is the stupid red marks from the past - they make it look like I have active acne, even though I don't.

Some of them are red, but some of them are also brown or faded pink or whatever. They are melasmas - not raised or indented; just discolored.

I was wondering if anyone has used TCA peels on their backs? I know these are normally used on the face, but I wanted to know people's personal experiences with using lactic acid or TCA peels on their backs!

Please please please? I hate wearing strapless shirts and bathing suits and I want to look normal before summer. sad.gif
