A chemical peel is a technique used to improve the appearance of the skin. A chemical solution is applied to the skin that causes it to exfoliate and eventually peel off. Modern day solutions of peels do not always warrant actual skin peeling however. The new, regenerated skin is usually smoother and less wrinkled than the old skin. The depth of the peel with greatly effect the amount of downtime you may have. It may be recommended to start off with a mild peel such as the Lactic Plus and build up to a stronger solution like the Glycolic Charcoal peel. Enzyme is also an option for those who do not wish to do a chemical peel.
It is very important to prepare your skin prior to a TCA peel. 1-2 Weeks prior to treatment, a skin lightening gel that contains hydroquinone, Kojic acid, retinoic acid and glycolic acid is recommended.
A TCA peel will typically help with fine lines, pigmentation and texturing of the skin. These work to superficially exfoliate the skin and to prevent post peel hyper-pigmentation.
