What is a Chemical Peel?
At Fountain of You Med Spa in Melbourne, FL we use Trichloroacetic Acid (TCA) Chemical Peel. It works by eliminating the top layers of skin so new, undamaged skin can emerge. This type of skin resurfacing is tried and true, and has been a popular chemical peel for many years. One of the unique things about a TCA chemical peel is that the concentration of chemicals can be adjusted to create a shallow, medium, or deep chemical peels. The strength of the TCA solution depends on how deep of a peel suits each client’s aesthetic goals. This is a great way to rejuvenate the skin’s appearance and fight signs of aging, and is used to improve and treat the following:
- Skin texture
- Fine lines
- Sun Damaged skin
- Acne scars
- Clogged pores
- Dark spots
How is a TCA Chemical Peel Performed?
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 chemical peels are stronger more effective than other types of chemical peels like glycolic and lactic acid chemical peels, and TCA peels usually produce better results.
