What Is The SkinCeuticals® TCA Peel?
The SkinCeuticals® Smart TCA Peel is a moderately deep chemical peel that provides deep exfoliation to remove dead, dry skin cells, while improving moderate to advanced signs of aging.
How Does The SkinCeuticals® TCA Peel Work?
This peel features trichloroacetic acid, glycolic acid, and a post-peel anti-inflammatory cream. TCA is a self-neutralizing acid that takes away and dissolves epidermal proteins. This helps to improve exfoliation. When the TCA is applied to the skin, it causes the top layer of cells to dry up and eventually peel off revealing smoother, younger-looking skin.
Am I A Good Candidate?
If you are fighting moderate signs of aging such as fine lines, wrinkles, dull skin, age spots, or sun damage, the SkinCeuticals® TCA Peel may be right for you. It is safe for most skin types and can be used on the face, neck, chect, back, arms, or legs.
How Long Does A Typical Treatment Take?
A treatment generally takes 30 to 60 minutes in our office. The skin is cleansed first and then the TCA solution is applied and allowed to work for a specific time as determined by your provider. Clients typically need 3 treatments which are spaced 4 weeks apart to see their ideal results.
What Results Will I See?
SkinCeuticals® Smart TCA Peel significantly improves the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, pore size, and discolorations. It provides improvements in the skin’s tone and texture as well. Clients will see some immediate improvements with additional improvements for 30-60 days.
Is There Any Downtime?
There is minimal downtime with this peel treatment. There will be 5-7 days of peeling, during which exposure to the sun is discouraged. When venturing outdoors it is advisable to wear sunscreen to protect the skin.
