What Is a Medical-grade TCA Peel?
Medical-grade means that a peel is powerful and must be administered by a medical professional for safety and efficiency. The strength of TCA Peels varies based on the concentration of trichloroacetic acid. Here at Turner Medical Arts, our TCA Peel features a 20-25% concentration, making it fairly light. As a superficial peel, our concentration can improve your skin texture, decrease whiteheads and blackheads, and give you a gorgeous glow that can last all evening.
The Treatment Procedure
The treatment process is quick and simple! The first step is to clean your skin with acetone to allow the TCA Peel to interact with your skin properly. Not wearing makeup to your appointment will make this process easier. Once your skin is clean, an ointment is applied to your lips and other areas of your skin to protect them. Then, the actual peel is applied. The peel has been described as feeling warm and causing a tingling sensation. After the peel has done its job, your skin is cooled with cold water, and a thin balm is applied to protect it.
Medical-grade TCA Peel Results
Our TCA Peel solution requires 14 days of downtime. It’s important that you follow our aftercare instructions during this time to avoid causing any damage to your skin while it heals. After your skin has healed, you will notice an improvement in your tone, and texture and a reduction in skin imperfections caused by things like sun damage and acne. This peel can be repeated again, so feel free to contact our office for a follow-up appointment!
