Chemical peels are a well-known treatment for almost any skin blemish. Peels are most commonly used on the face for improvement in tone and texture. There are different peel strengths, which is something that makes this treatment highly customizable. When you are interested in reducing the appearance of skin conditions like melasma and acne scarring, a TCA chemical peel may be the right choice for you.

What is a TCA Chemical Peel?
Chemical peels usually come in varying strengths depending on the type of acid used. TCA, also known as trichloroacetic acid, is for medium peels. Mild to medium peels can be performed on a routine basis, and deep peels are almost always only performed once. Our professionals can develop a personalized treatment plan for you, if necessary, so you can maintain and improve on your results.
Chemical peels perform by removing dead skin cells without the need for scrubbing. Manual exfoliation can sometimes cause more damage to the skin than necessary, which is why chemical peels are such a popular choice for women.
Due to how deep a TCA chemical peel goes, there is some downtime necessary. Your skin may be red and sensitive for some time, and it is important to stay out of the sun while your skin recovers.
Who is a Good Candidate?
When you consult with our professionals, we will make sure you are a good candidate for a TCA chemical peel. The first thing we will consider is whether you are breastfeeding or pregnant. It is important that your job does not require that you be out in the sun, since you need to avoid sun exposure in order to recover properly.
We will also make sure that you do not have psoriasis, eczema, or rosacea, as these conditions may not respond well to a chemical peel. As well, certain acne medications may respond negatively to a TCA peel, so it is important that you receive your peel treatment after a certain amount of time has passed since using acne medication.
