TCA Peel

TCA PeelTCA Peel is a type of chemical peel and works in a similar way to a Glycolic peel. It uses natural acids found in fruits to gently regenerate your skin.

The surface of our skin is continually regenerating itself by shedding the old outer skin cells and replacing them with new healthier skin cells. As we get older our skin does not replace these cells as often which can mean there is a layer of old dead skin on the surface of our face. This can make the skin look old and lifeless.

The aim of a TCA peel is to remove these dead skin cells to reveal the newer, younger looking cells directly below.

TCA Peel is recommended for the following:

  • To reduce and smooth out fine lines: There are limitations to what the peel can treat but it is effective on fine lines.
  • Reduce superficial blemishes: The treatment will only be effective if the blemishes are mild and in the superficial layers of the skin.
  • Even out pigmentation areas: The peel can be effective providing the pigmentation is superficial.
  • Reduction of acne and surface scars: The peel is not effective against deep scars or bad acne. If this is the case you will need to consider specialised acne treatment.

What Does TCA Peel involve?

  • TCA peels normally take around 15 minutes to perform.
  • Before the peel is applied the skin needs to be thoroughly cleansed.
  • The peel is applied for no longer than 5 minutes. Most people report a mild stinging sensation whilst the peel is applied but it is not painful.
  • After about 5 minutes the peel is thoroughly washed off.
  • You can expect your face to be slightly pink after the procedure and it may be slightly itchy for a day or so.
  • You may need repeat treatments depending on the results and the condition of your skin.

How Much Does TCA Peel Cost?

This will vary from one clinic to another but the normal price is around £70 per peel. Don’t forget you may need more than one treatment and this is something you will need to consider when calculating the price. During a consultation your skin will be assessed to determine how many peels you are likely to need.
