What Happens During a TCA Peel?
During this treatment, our professional will apply a solution to your skin and wait for it to dry. Your skin will slowly begin to peel over the days that follow before new skin appears. Before you leave our office, you may receive advice about how to care for your skin in the days and weeks after the treatment.
Who Is a Good Candidate for a TCA Peel?
If you are looking for a skin fix that improves tone and texture and reduces signs of aging, a TCA peel might be a good option. This treatment can help to improve sun-damaged skin, melasma, and hyperpigmentation. To find out if you are a good candidate for a TCA peel, an initial consultation is required.
When Will the Results Be Seen?
TCA peels are a non-surgical procedure that can take as little as a minutes to carry out. Individual results will vary, but you may notice results within days as old skin peels off and fresh, new skin appears. Typically, this new skin will appear smooth and more youthful.
A series of treatment sessions may be necessary in order to achieve the best results. During a consultation, our professional can give you an idea of how many treatments you may need to achieve your goals for your skin.
