Trichloroacetic Acid Skin Peel



What is the benefit of TCA Skin Peel

Despite the fact that the trichloroacetic acid (TCA) skin peel can be obtained as an over the counter item, it is always prudent to consult with your dermatologist or medical esthetician first to discuss the advantages and disadvantages of having the peel, regardless of whether you are a good candidate for the peel, and if your skin might best benefit from a light or deep peel. The TCA skin peel is beneficial for reducing or eliminating acne, age spots, dull skin, facial lines, freckles, skin damage, and uneven pigmentation.

Generally, your doctor will carefully apply the solution to your face like an astringent, avoiding eyes and lips. Your skin will appearance and feel like you’ve just had a sunburn. By the following day, it will start to turn darker and feel tight. Eventually, the peeling will start and continue for up to a week. Your new skin will emerge looking more glowing, fresh, and younger.
