THE TRICHLOROACETIC (TCA) PEEL
Trichloroacetic Acid, often referred to as TCA, is an effective chemical agent used to exfoliate and renew the skin on a superficial to deep level. TCA is commonly applied to the Face, Neck, Décolleté, Hands, and Legs. In addition, TCA is also an excellent “spot treatment” and can be used to exclusively peel isolated areas of the skin.
The benefits of superficial TCA peels are many, but among the most notable is the ability to adjust the depth to fit the skin problem. As more coats are applied, the peel will get deeper, as the solution goes looking for protein to neutralize itself. The long-lasting results make it an ideal peel for those who prefer less peeling sessions at the cost of moderate downtime.
Chemical peels are used to treat different skin conditions, such as sun spots, fine lines, wrinkles and uneven skin tones.
The Jessner and TCA peels are the two popular types of chemical peels. The peel is applied to your skin and then removed after some time. The top layer of your skin peels off as a result, revealing newer, youthful looking skin.
This peel is a medium depth peel designed to improve more extensive skin damage. The benefits for both men and women are impressive.
