Improve the Complexion and Rejuvenate Skin with Trichloroacetic Acid Peels
TCA Peels Available in 10%, 15%, 20%, 25% and 30% Solutions
Unlike glycolic acid and salicylic acid peels, trichloroacetic acid (TCA) peels go deeper into the skin to treat sun damage and hyperpigmentation. They can be especially beneficial for treating acne scars and other skin imperfections. TCA peels are available in different strengths and can be supplemented with glycolic and salicylic acid to extend the peel’s benefits.
TCA peels don’t bleach the skin like other peels do but do help regenerate new skin cells and fade dark spots. A series of these peels is most effective for treating hyperpigmentation, acne scars, and more stubborn spots.
Higher concentrations (10% and above) are only available by prescription for “office use” per FDA regulations.
