TCA Peel

The TCA peel is ideal for all skin types and tones. The TCA peel will improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles while improving skin laxity. The TCA peel can also help improve minor acne scarring, pigmentation, improve skin discolouration and even reverse pre-cancerous lesions! The TCA peel treatment takes approximately 30 minutes. A post-peel restorative mask is applied following the peel to soothe the skin following application. The TCA peel has a minimal downtime with approximately 5-10 days of down time and peeling. 

GET THE FACTS

The TCA peel is comprised of 25-35% Trichloroacetic acid. The TCA peel is a medium depth peel with more extensive down time and peeling than more superficial peels. The TCA peel is known as the gold standard chemical peel and has been used safely for decades. The TCA peel has also been clinically tested on a variety of skin tones including darker skin types, ensuring its safety and efficacy for all skin types.  The procedure can be mildly uncomfortable so it's important to discuss during your consultation topical numbing, pain medication and other comfort methods to help make you feel more relaxed during the treatment
