Trichloroacetic acid peels(Skin Tech easy TCA)
Trichloric Acid ( TCA ) is a highly effective chemical agent used to exfoliate and renew the skin on an intermediate level.
The TCA’s ability to treat a wide range of skin conditions makes it the perfect chemical peel for clients with multiple skin problems, including:
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Uneven skin tone
- Sagging and loss of firmness
- Sun damaged skin
- Due to its antibacterial properties, the TCA peel is an excellent choice for clients suffering from chronic acne vulgaris.
Before your first treatment your practitioner will assess your skin and address your primary concerns. They will then asses if a TCA peel would be suitable for you.
It can be used on all skin types including dark skins.
The skin will be cleaned and the peel solution will be applied to the area to be treated, this could be the face, neck, chest and hands.
When applied the peel solution penetrates deep into the skin seeking protein to neutralize itself.
The skin will begin to “frost” and you will feel a slight burning feeling to the skin being treated. When frosting is evident a post peel mask will be applied and this will immediately stop the hot burning feeling.
The treated area should not be cleaned on the evening of the peel. The skin will feel tight for a few days following the peel and will noticeably flake on the third and fourth day.
Make up can be worn after 24 hours. Jewellery should not be worn for 48 hours.
The TCA peel is beneficial in rejuvenating skin to reduce the visible signs of aging or sun damaged skin, fine lines and wrinkles.
It’s the deep exfoliation which lifts away lack lustre skin, revealing a younger, clearer complexion.
It’s a fantastic treatment to freshen the skins appearance and give a radiant look.
If you have a wedding or special event coming up you may choose to have a one off treatment, while a single peel will deliver a noticeable benefit, a course is sometimes recommended for optimum results.
Having a course of 4 TCA peels 2 weeks apart will see that your skin looks its absolute best.
Following an Easy TCA peel, skin must be protected from the sun with a SPF 50+.
