Chemical peeling uses a chemical solution in order to improve the skin’s appearance. It can reduce or eliminate fine lines under the eyes and around the mouth, correct uneven skin pigmentation, treat acne and soften the appearance of scars caused by acne. The procedure can also reduce the appearance of wrinkles caused by sun damage as well as skin blemishes common with age. Chemical peels can be performed on the face, neck, hands, and all other body areas.

 

What is TCA?

Trichloroacetic acid (TCA) is a highly effective medium depth peel and can be successful in the effective treatment of:

  • Reduction of smooth fine surface wrinkles
  • Reduction of superficial blemishes
  • Correction of pigment problems
  • Reduction of Acne/Acne Scarring

 

Anaesthesia is not required for TCA peels. It is applied in four weekly sessions. Two or more courses of TCA peels may be required to obtain the desired improvements. There is no down time and you can carry on with your activities as normal.

TCA Peel patients are advised to avoid sun exposure and to use a sun protection cream (minimum SPF 30) for several weeks following treatment. Failure to comply with this recommendation may produce some unintended colour changes in the skin.

Skin Preparation may be required on those with darker skin and hyperpigmented areas. This involves using a bleach and blend cream two weeks prior to TCA Peels. People with Active Acne also require skin preparation with the purifying cream two weeks prior to TCA Peels.
