At Saskatoon Dermatology Centre, we offer TCA Medical Peels as an effective solution for treating Actinic Keratosis (AKs) and other skin concerns. Trichloroacetic Acid (TCA) is a deep-chemical peel that penetrates the skin's surface to promote exfoliation and stimulate collagen production.

 

TCA Medical Peels are recommended for patients with AKs, precancerous lesions caused by sun damage. These peels help to remove damaged skin cells and improve overall skin texture and tone. In some cases, TCA Medical Peels may be covered by Saskatchewan Health with a treatment recommendation from a dermatologist.

 

Before undergoing a TCA Medical Peel treatment, patients will have a consultation with our technicians who perform the treatment. During this consultation, our technicians will assess the patient's skin condition, discuss treatment goals, and explain the procedure in detail. Patients will also have the opportunity to ask any questions and address any concerns they may have.

 

During the TCA Medical Peel treatment, a solution containing TCA is applied to the skin in a controlled manner. This solution works to remove the outer layers of damaged skin, revealing healthier, more youthful-looking skin underneath. The depth of the peel can be adjusted based on the patient's specific needs and desired outcome.

 

Following the treatment, patients may experience some redness, swelling, and peeling as the skin undergoes the healing process. Downtime may vary depending on the depth of the peel and individual skin sensitivity. Our team will provide post-treatment care instructions to help minimize discomfort and optimize results.

 

If you're considering TCA Medical Peel treatments, be sure to inquire about this option during your next appointment with your dermatologist. Our team is committed to delivering safe and effective treatments to support you in attaining healthier, clearer skin.

Initial consultation is required. To schedule a consultation with one of our Dermatologists, a doctor's referral is required.
