TCA – a line of dermocosmetics for reducing stretch marks, scars and removing lentigines. Depending on the concentration, the treatment can be a surface or deep peel.
Who Can Benefit?
The TCA chemical peel is recommended primarily for deep wrinkles, keratosis senilis, papulopustular acne, flabby skin, lentigines, acne scars and fresh traumatic scars.
Effectiveness – Science Above All
Trichloroacetic acid (TCA) is a derivative of acetic acid. Depending on the needs, we can perform surface or deep peels. The TCA peeling procedure involves the application of one to several layers of the solution on the skin for a controlled chemical burn. The patient usually feels a few-minute sting and discomfort, which disappear within 2-3 minutes.
After treatment, the skin becomes darker, more tense, and then the epidermis cracks and peels off, exposing a new fresh layer. Most importantly – there may occur crusting or even bleeding. During the renewal process of the epidermis, you may feel a slight pain.
How Many Treatments Do I Need?
As with most therapies, the number of necessary treatments is determined individually. Our aim are the best results, therefore, it is possible to combine various treatments to meet the needs of each client. For the TCA chemical peel 4-8 treatments every 2-4 weeks are recommended. The TCA peel is the strongest organic acid and can be used on most parts of the body, particularly on the face, neck, décolletage, back, shoulders, forearms, hands and lower limbs.
