TCA Peels Facts and Details for 2014

Chemical peels are used today to improve skin's texture, smooth out skin tone and lighten dark patches or hyperpigmentation, and to improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. They use chemicals to remove the surface of the skin, allowing healthier, smoother new skin to grow in its place. Deep peels, performed with phenol, can treat excessive scarring, severe hyperpigmentation, deep wrinkles and even precancerous growths. Skin peels have a long history, going all the way back to ancient Egypt. 

The TCA medium strength peel reveals fresh, glowing skin with moderate downtime and peeling. It can effectively treat mild to acute acne due in part to its powerful anti-bacterial properties. Fine lines and wrinkles as well as an uneven and blotchy complexion can all be successfully treated with the TCA 20% peel. This well-rounded treatment, like all TCA peels, is best suited for experienced users who have tolerated acids in the past.

Chemical peels are used for the treatment of photoaging (from sun damage), wrinkles, scarring, acne, pre-cancerous lesions, and discoloration (dyschromia) or uneven skin tone. Chemical peels produce controlled injury to the skin to promote the growth of new skin with an improved appearance.
