This is a TCA Peel and This is How It Works

TCA or Trichloroacetic acid is a medical-grade chemical peel treatment which helps reverse sun damage, wrinkles, and acne in the skin. TCA is a strong medical-grade peel. A time-tested ingredient for dermatologists, a TCA peel is a cosmetic treatment that uses trichloroacetic acid (TCA) to improve the skin's appearance. TCA is naturally derived from acetic acid (like vinegar). TCA is the next-level above glycolic acid and FDA approved Retin-A. TCA is one of the most famous, long tested acid peels available. TCA stands for trichloroacetic acid. It is a medium depth peel that has been used with excellent results for over 135 years!

TCA can be easily adjusted to any depth needed to address common skin imperfections. The number of coats, or the volume of solution will increase the depth of the peel. The percentage does not make the peel move deeper - it is the LAYERS of solution or VOLUME of solution that cause the penetration. We can explain this by teaching you how TCA actually works. A TCA peel works by breaking bonds of the top layer of skin for natural exfoliation and the removal of dead skin cells over a few days. It also stimulates new skin cell and collagen growth for smoother, more attractive new layers of skin. TCA is used to achieve younger looking skin and to improve the appearance of certain skin conditions like melasma and acne scarring. TCA is mostly suitable for all skin types. TCA peels are a medium-depth peel that penetrates deeper than glycolic, salicylic, and most of the other acids available over the counter without going to a dermatologist.

To begin a TCA peel at home, we recommend the TCA Advanced Peel Solution by Dermatologist's Choice. It is dermatologist recommended to be used at least once a month and more as needed.
