Understanding the TCA Peel

Chemical skin peeling makes use of more concentrated exfoliants to accelerate the removal of dead skin cells from the surface of the skin, thus producing regeneration of new and younger-looking skin cells. Out of all the skin peeling procedures available, the TCA skin peel is the most popular.

TCA Peel, which stands for Trichloroacetic Peel, uses trichloroacetic acid to remove superficial blemishes such as post-acne scars, correct pigment problems (melasma) and smooth out fine surface wrinkles. On some occasions, TCA Peel has even been used to remove and prevent the growth of pre-cancerous lesions. 

It is an intermediate to deep peeling agent that is normally used in 10 to 35% concentrations, depending on the extent of peeling that the patient wishes to achieve.

What happens during a TCA Peel?

Since TCA is a chemical that will slough off the dead surface of the skin, patients may feel a burning sensation once it is applied. You may elect to  take pain medication or sedatives prior to the procedure, though this must be planned with Dr. Sikorski beforehand.

TCA is applied to the problem areas, one area at a time. Normally your skin turns slightly red after the chemical has been applied – this means that the TCA is working.

The TCA peel is able to effectively remove the thin surface layers of aged and damaged skin from the face or other parts of the body.  These dead skin cells are replaced by healthier ones.  This allows the skin's own clarity and tightness to resurface.  Deeper than a light glycolic acid peel, the TCA gets stronger results. 

What should be expected?

  • Day 1 - skin is tight and an orangeish color
  • Day 2 - skin is tight and has some cracking
  • Day 3, 4, 5 - aggressive peeling
  • Day 6, 7 - skin begins healing

The word "chemical" scares most people but be assured that the process is controlled. Chemical peels have been used throughout history to restore youthful skin appearance.

TCA Peels can, when used properly, provide dramatic improvement in the appearance and condition of your skin. TCA Peels are adjustable depending on the specific skin problem they are being used for. The concentrations of the trichloroaecetic acid and method of application will determine the depth of the effects.

Chemical peels can create a dramatic improvement in skin rejuvenation. After TCA facial peels are completed, there is a boost in collagen reproduction, revealing healthier skin in a few weeks.
