What Is a TCA Chemical Peel?

TCA chemical peel If you’re interested in achieving a more youthful, even skin tone, it’s likely that you’ve considered the idea of a chemical peel to help you look and feel your best. Chemical peels are a great fit for many people, and at Lombardo Cosmetic Surgery, our team is here to answer all of your chemical peel questions. Here, we’ll take a look at what you can expect from a TCA chemical peel.

What Is TCA?

TCA stands for trichloroacetic acid, which is an effective skin exfoliant that works to reduce wrinkles and get rid of sun damage. TCA peels are also effective for treating acne, age spots, acne scars, and fine lines around the mouth and eyes.

Your TCA Chemical Peel Procedure: What to Expect

Prior to your TCA chemical peel, you’ll talk with your care provider about any questions and concerns that you have, including any concerns you might have about chemical peels. Your care provider will also talk with you about the potential results following your procedure.

If you decide to move forward with your chemical peel treatment, you’ll receive instructions on any skin care products or procedures that you need to avoid prior to your appointment. Typically, it’s recommended that you stay away from harsh exfoliants and that you protect your skin from excessive sun exposure.

During your chemical peel procedure, your care provider will begin by cleaning your skin. Then, thin layers of the mild TCA solution will be applied to your face. Your entire appointment may take about 45 minutes, while the peel itself will typically take about half an hour. Your care provider may recommend specific products to use after your peel to help your skin stay moisturized and begin the healing process.
