Our TCA Peel brand TCA chemical peels have the ability to effectively address your facial wrinkles like no other product on the market today, bar none.
One of the reasons why people opt for a TCA chemical peel is achieving a fresher, clearer, tighter, healthier and younger looking appearance. The good thing about a peel is that you can administer it yourself at home and by passing the high cost of paying a Dr anywhere from $500.00 to $2,000.00 for just a single treatment.
The procedure is not drastic or invasive if you choose a mild TCA solution like a 10% or 15% strength. But if your wanting dramatic results then you might want to opt for a stronger cosmetic peel like a 25% or 50% strength treatment. You can choose the TCA chemical peels that is the most appropriate for your skin considering the length of time it will take a stronger peel to heal, considering the desired results that you want to achieve, and problems you need to treat.
TCA chemical peels are very effective in reducing and or removing acne and acne scars, wrinkles and fine lines, age spots, evening out skin tone and hyperpigmentation and treating numerous skin conditions.
Peels at a 25% to 35% strength give a deep peeling that can effectively reduce fine lines underneath the eyes and around the mouth. These peels can also help in reducing the development of any new fine lines or wrinkles as well as other signs of skin aging. Skin peels are also known to remove any “pre-cancerous” skin spots on the skin helping to greatly reduce skin cancer. Many dermatologists perform regular TCA peels on their patients simply to cut back or even eliminate skin cancer in patients who are prone to melanoma or other skin cancers. Dermatologist also may suggest a TCA cosmetic peel because of it’s cosmetic benefits but whatever the reasons the clients’ rewards can be numerous.
There are generally three types of peels, light, medium and deep. While stronger deeper peeling solutions are more effective they can take over a week of healing and recovery time. A light 8-10% strength tca peel works on the very outer layers of the skin and are often called “lunchtime peels” due to the fact that there is very little healing time. A medium depth 16-25% strength peel penetrates more deeply than a lighter peel with some recovery time. A 35% peel penetrates even more deeply into the skin producing even more dramatic results but with a considerable amount of healing time usually a little over a week.
In treating wrinkles, at least a medium strength cosmetic peel is required. The most common strength of a medium TCA peel (trichloroacetic acid peel) is a 25% strength. A peel can also be used at this concentration for removing the top skin layers resulting in a remarkable improvement in your skin appearance and a 35% strength TCA peel is sufficient to remove facial wrinkles and can also give great skin tightening, also resulting in noticeably smaller skin pores.
One advantage of using a TCA chemical peel over other milder chemical peels, are that the results that can be achieved in just one peeling procedure can actually give the user such dramatic skin improvements that one can possibly yield the appearance of taking off anywhere from 10 to 15 years off their actual appearance. I know that this sounds impossible but it is absolutely true and especially for a first time user. We have heard this time and time again over the last several years. In fact, a 50% strength TCA peel can give the equivalent of at least 4 to 6 other milder chemical peels.
The effectiveness of TCA chemical peels in eliminating wrinkles is because it is a more intrusive peel which means that it can actually peel more skin layers off, revealing entirely new, wrinkle-free skin after just one peeling treatment. While the recovery time is longer than other milder chemical peels, this can and does lead to much better results. You can get rid of your wrinkles in just 12-21 days on an average using a deep 50% TCA peels or you can use a milder TCA peel a few times until you achieved your own personal desired results.
Please note, it is recommended that you perform a TCA chemical peel at least once a year after achieving your desired results so as to maintain that fantastic new skin.
Your skin can be sensitive to the sun for up to 6 months once you undergo a TCA chemical peel treatment so applying a 35 spf or higher sunscreen and reapplying as directed on the label is recommended to prevent any other skin damage.
