TCA Facial Peels
The TCA (trichloroacetic acid) Facial Peel is a more aggressive peel than the Glycolic Acid Peel and produces more impressive results. The TCA peel is used when more aggressive repair of sun damaged skin is necessary. It is the preferred method of chemical peel for darker-skinned patients, can correct skin pigment problems, and can also remove superficial blemishes.
This TCA Chemical Peel can also be used to soften fine wrinkles, and lessen brown discolorations. Its effects can be altered to allow for mild to severe peeling. The chemical in this peel allows for a deeper exfoliation of the skin, stimulating the remodeling and building of new collagen.
Depending upon the aggressiveness of the peel, the top layers of the skin slough within 5 to 7 days and are replaced within 7 days by new epidermis. This peel leaves the skin beautifully revived.
Potential requirements for the TCA Peel
You may be required to have a pre-treatment of Retin-A or AHA creams. You may also have to repeat treatments to maintain your desired results. Following treatment, it’s absolutely mandatory and imperative that you use sunblock for several months.
While the TCA Facial Peel is an extremely effective treatment method, it’s important to discuss all potential options with your doctor. Prior to treatment, our certified dermatologists discuss your options as well as all potential side effects, based on your unique circumstances and body.
