Modern TCA Peels

| July 30, 2018

Go deep for ultimate Aesthetic Results

The evolution of TCA Peels has led to greater consistency in achieving excellent results. This means that the old fears about TCA treatments can be shelved and that more individuals than ever are now able to benefit from the multiple aesthetic advantages offered by a TCA Peel.*

Science behind the Peel

Advances in the science behind Chemical Peels using Trichloroacetic Acid have given Aesthetic Doctors the tools to blend proprietary Chemical Peels and to formulate peels suited to individual client skin type and needs exactly. These reformulations and the individualization now possible allows for greater control over penetration depth.

TCA peels can be prepared at various strengths from 5% to 50%. The depth or absorption rate is determined by the concentration of TCA. This new flexibility allows for TCA to be used effectively on the entire face or used as a spot treatment on the face, neck, and hands. This ability to peel more precisely, assists in avoiding unwanted dermal damage, thus maintaining client safety and comfort.

How to prepare the skin for a TCA Chemical Peel

Advanced preparation before a TCA may or may not be recommended depending on whether or not an individual has ever had a TCA peel before as well as skin type and what concerns or conditions are being targeted. If pre-treatment is advised it is often a creme or gel that contains chemical compounds such as lightening components, retinoids, or other active ingredients that superficially exfoliate skin or reduce sebum production as TCA is water-soluble and can not penetrate through excess oil. It is important that Dr Clark be involved in any pre-conditioning that you undertake as pre-treatment will affect the penetration depth of the chemical peel.

The Peel Process

An experienced expert medical doctor is a critical component of achieving best results from a TCA Peel Treatment. The process will be tailored to precisely assist in achieving one’s goals. At your appointment your skin will first be cleansed thoroughly. Your peel will then be applied very carefully in several layers at certain specifically timed intervals. No anaesthesia is required. Some discomfort might be experienced while the Peel is taking place but this should not last long and is correlated to the strength of the Peel being applied. The skin may take up to several days before peeling. In some instances, a series of treatments may be advised.

Recovery After a Peel

Depending on the depth of your peel, downtime could be required. Light peels may only require 48 hours while stronger peels have a range of downtime that lasts up to 10 days. While movement is unlikely to be restricted, staying in for a bit and rest is suggested to allow for maximum comfort while reddened or inflamed skin calms. Treated skin is especially sensitive to the UV rays in sunlight so shielding your skin is especially vital. It is of utmost importance to follow recovery instructions and it is very likely that a recovery cream will be recommended by Dr Clark.

Enhance Results

Professional cosmeceutical creme’s can have a major positive impact on recovery time and contribute to enhancing results. Advanced recovery creme’s sooth the dermis while supplying the skin with the nutritive components required for rejuvenated recovery.
