A TCA peel is a type of chemical peel that uses trichloroacetic acid (TCA) to remove the top layer of skin. It is a stronger peel than a glycolic peel and is used to treat more severe skin problems such as deep wrinkles, acne scarring, and sun damage.

A TCA peel works by damaging the skin’s top layer, causing it to peel off. This reveals the new, underlying skin, which is often smoother and more radiant. (a glowing appearance)

The primary ingredient in a TCA chemical peel is trichloroacetic acid, a derivative of vinegar, and it exists in concentrations of 15–70%. These peels can be applied in a variety of strengths (from light to medium) and may be customized by the use of pre-treatment agents prior to treatment as well as the number of layers applied during treatment. TCA peels are applied to remove the uppermost layer of skin (epidermis) from the face, neck, hands, and other parts of the body. TCA peels use chemical exfoliation to remove dead skin cells from the treatment area, reducing the appearance and visibility of acne scars, sun damage, melasma, and hyperpigmentation while exposing a brand-new, unblemished layer of skin underneath.

A TCA peel is performed by our trained staff at Victory Naples.  The treatment itself only takes about an hour and requires a few days of recovery time where your skin will peel and might be red. As the skin peels, new and younger skin appears that is glowing and radiant.  TCA Peel is great for combating wrinkles and fine lines.
