WHAT TO EXPECT
The 10% TCA Peel is a light strength peel, but please note that TCA is stronger than other peels which means mild to moderate peeling is expected with even a 10% TCA solution. When the peel is applied you may feel a stinging sensation as the acid penetrates the skin. You can use a fan or an ice pack to alleviate any discomfort.
If the peel was layered during application and left on long enough, then frosting may occur. Frosting is when the peel changes from clear to white during a chemical peel procedure. This indicates that the acid has penetrated the skin sufficiently and it is now time to neutralize. During the healing process it is common for the frosted areas to darken before peeling off.
The peeling typically starts 2-5 days after the peel procedure. During the healing process you can expect a short downtime. Duration of downtime varies according per the individual.
HOW OFTEN CAN I USE THIS PEEL?
The 10% TCA Peel can be applied 6-8 weeks apart depending on need and skin tolerance
WHO CAN USE THIS PEEL?
Can be used by those new to peels but if you suffer from more acute skin problems you can eventually work your way up to a 20% or 30% TCA peel.
This peel can be ideal for those with more significant skin issues such as deep wrinkles, stubborn hyperpigmentation, sun damage, and acne scarring.
Safe for all skin tones including darker skin.
