The function of a TCA Peel (Trichloroacetic Acid Peel) is to create a controlled shedding of several layers of damaged skin cells. This exfoliation process exposes a new, fresh layer of skin with a more even colour and a smoother texture. A chemical solution is applied to your skin, which causes the top layers of skin cells to dehydrate and peel off over a period of several days. The depth and percentage of the peel can be customised to match your requirements with the amount of downtime you are prepared to tolerate. The deeper and stronger the peel, the more dramatic the result.
WHAT IS A TCA PEEL USED FOR?
To remove superficial layers of skin
Dry out active acne and improve some acne scars
Help lighten hyperpigmentation, melasma and generally even out the skin tone
Reduce shallow or superfine wrinkling on the face
Improve the overall appearance and health of sun-damaged, ageing skin
Your can start peeling approximately 48-72 hours after treatment. This varies person to person. Generally, peeling can last anywhere from 2-14 days. Peeling usually starts around the mouth and nose and continues upward.
Your skin may look as if it has had a moderate sunburn and can appear darker than normal before peeling occurs. It may feel hot and tight like a sunburn. This can last from 24-72 hours. Although uncommon, swelling can appear on the face and around eyes within 24 hours.
The TCA peel is an extremely powerful chemical peeling agent. It is important to understand that some people may have a stronger and longer peeling response, or experience other after effects like facial swelling or prolonged skin redness and irritation. How you look after your skin once home is crucial to your skin’s healing and recovery. Please remember that the after effects of this peel are similar to having a moderate sunburn or burn. Therefore, it is important to care for your skin during the peeling phase as though you are caring for a burn or sunburn. So, stay out of the sun, keep cool, continue applying the calming balms to your peeling skin and keep up the H2O hydration!
