This type of chemical peel can be applied to the face, neck, chest, hands, arms and legs. After prepping the skin, the TCA solution is applied to the desired areas by a trained aesthetician. The solution is left on the skin for several minutes and then is neutralized. The aesthetician then gently cleans the area and applies ointment to help speed along the healing process, and post care instructions are given. The process only takes about 15-30 minutes. After 2-3 days, the skin will temporarily darken and start to peel, which generally lasts between 3-5 days depending on the depth of the peel. After the skin stops peeling the results become apparent; the skin will appear younger, firmer, and more even in pigment and texture. TCA medical peels are stronger more effective than other types of chemical peels like glycolic and lactic acid chemical peels, and TCA medical peels usually produce better results.
