How does a TCA peel work?
The TCA chemical peel can be performed as a light, medium, or deep peel. Depending on the strength of the TCA peel being performed, some form of anesthetic may be used for comfort. Once the eyes, lips, nose, and other delicate areas have been protected, and the skin has been cleansed of makeup, oils, and debris, the TCA agent, will be applied and allowed to interact with the skin for the appropriate amount of time. Following treatment, patients can expect their skin to peel and flake away. This process can last up to a week or longer, so it is important to schedule your TCA chemical peel with that timeline in mind. Once the healing process is complete, patients will notice brighter, more even, healthier-looking skin.
What strength TCA peel should I get for acne scars?
Following a thorough consultation and evaluation, Crystal will recommend a chemical peel strength that will be the safest and most effective for you. In general, a medium or strong chemical peel typically produces the best results when it comes to minimizing the appearance of acne scars, though this will depend on the severity and age of the scars, the patient’s skin type, and other factors. Since the TCA chemical peel is customizable, patients can rest assured they’ll receive a treatment tailored to meet their individual needs and goals.
