The TCA Peeling is a deeper peeling than that using glycolic acid to reduce superficial lines and wrinkles and to reduce pigmentation in the skin. A TCA Peeling in the face will have a very refreshing effect.
When the skin texture is rough (for instance due to acne scars) and looks irregular, a TCA Peeling can also be a good treatment option.
More information about a TCA Peeling
For this more intensive peeling, we use the non-toxic chemical trichloracetic acid. This chemical breaks down the water retention capabilities of the cells in the upper skin layers. This causes the cells to die and peel off.
By letting the upper skin layers die, the skin is forced to create new skin layers. This skin is created underneath the 'dead' skin cell layers. When these 'dead' skin cells are removed using a peeling, a new skin below with better skin texture and less pigmentation is formed. A TCA Peeling makes the skin noticeably more even and smooth, but does not improve the elasticity of the skin.
A TCA Peeling has a highly refreshing effect on the skin. Deep wrinkles can not be treated using a TCA Peeling. For this another treatment is required, such as Laser Rejuvenation, Laser Skin Resurfacing or Dermal Fillers.
A TCA Peeling can also be applied on places where the skin is very thin, such as on the back of the hands or in the neck. This creates a smoother and more even skin.
We can treat patients with the following conditions using a TCA peeling:
- Significant improvement for the skin texture and smoothness
- Small wrinkles and fine lines are reduced
During your initial consultation, everything will be discussed related to the TCA Peeling: what is the process for the treatment, what results you may expect, possible side effects and after care. You will always receive honest advice and clear information about the treatment and the period afterwards.
Prior to any skin treatment, one of our staff will register all your details and will conduct a skin analysis. It might be necessary to take some pictures of the area that will be treated for your treatment file.
