As the holiday season gets underway and 2016 begins to wind down. Now is a perfect time to say goodbye to dull and tired looking skin with a TCA (Trichloroacetic Acid) peel… making way for a brighter, more radiant look and feel.
For those of you that have wrinkles, uneven skin tone and/or enlarged pores yet are on a “budget”, TCA peels might be a great compromise to laser treatments.
TCA peels cannot be performed in conventional “day spas” as these are medical-strength peels, performed in our practice by experienced paramedical estheticians.
Trichloroacetic Acid is one of the strongest peels available, used in various concentrations. It penetrates deep into your skin’s superficial layers to exfoliate and renew the skin while improving your overall complexion with minimal downtime and a very reasonable price.
How is this Procedure Conducted?
The range of depth achieved from a TCA Peel varies according to concentration potency, application methods and of course skin type. The concentration and number of layers applied during the treatment will have a substantial effect on the TCA Peel’s desired results. As more coats are applied, the peel will penetrate deeper into the skin until the solution finds the proteins of your skin cells to neutralize itself.
You’ll see marked improvement with just one treatment, but your paramedical esthetician may recommend several additional treatments to achieve optimal results.
After the Peel?
The downtime is moderate and varies according to individual skin traits and selected concentration/application methods.
We also offer other peels, suitable for specific skin conditions and needs including Glycolic, Salicylic and Jessner’s Peel. For instance, Glycolic Acid, also known as Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA), is a non-toxic chemical exfoliant naturally found in sugar beets, unripe grapes and sugarcane. Contrary to the TCA peel, which can penetrate deep into the dermis, the Glycolic Acid Peel dissolves the uppermost layer of the epidermis.
