Tricholoracetic Acid (TCA) is a medium depth chemical peel that is highly effective in promoting skin smoothness and vitality. It improves superficial discoloration and fine lines.
Differing peel depths (TCA 10-30%) are used to address moderate to severe sun damage and superficial actinic keratoses (precancers). Following application of the peel, expect 7-10 days of peeling, followed by mild redness.
TCA 50% can be used to treat xanthelasma spots around the eye.
