How does it work?
TCA, or Trichloroacetic Acid peels are a considered a medium or deep strength chemical peel. There are varying strengths of the solutions used, depending on your skin type. TCA peels have been used with great success for years, it is a very safe and effective chemical peel.
Is a TCA peel right for me?
A medium or deep strength peel is effective at promoting skin smoothness and vitality. This peel will improve texture, skin tone and stimulate collagen, thus improving moderate to deep lines and wrinkles. It will also reduce some hyperpigmentation, or sunspots.
You will see an improvement after just one treatment. There will be no discomfort following the procedure. You will wash your face twice daily with gentle soap and water followed by application of ointment.
Within a few days, your superficial layers of skin will turn dark, become tight and begin to flake or peel. Flaking is usually complete in four to seven days. There will be no open wounds and no scabs. Once your skin has finished peeling, you may begin wearing makeup.
