What is TCA Peel

TCA peels are one of the best, most effective non-prescription skin peels and skin care treatments. Using TCA (Trichloroacetic Acid) to penetrate and remove the very superficial layers of the skin is time tested and an effective alternative, often preferable, to laser as its results are consistent. We use anywhere from 20-25% TCA provided by one of our physicians at Hacker Dermatology.

How Does a Chemical Peel Work?

At Hacker Dermatology, a TCA chemical peel is used to improve the texture of the skin and reduce unsightly pigmentation. Chemical peels accelerate the turnover of skin cells stimulated by the peeling agent in TCA.  The rapid turnover of cells results in moving pigment to the surface and shedding it. This shedding is what eliminates the brown pigment and improves overall texture.

Once the TCA peel treatment is completed, shedding of the outer layer of skin may occur for approximately three days to 2 weeks. Your skin may peel more than once.

After the Peel

After received your chemical peel you may resume your normal activities immediately. However, you will want to avoid sweating after you start to peel. Most importantly sunlight should be avoided at all times for the first 3-4 days. Additional post care will be provided.
