What is a TCA peeling?
A TCA peeling, also known as a Trichloroacetic acid peel, is one of the strongest peels that can be used against skin ageing, pigmentation problems, fine lines, and scars. The TCA molecule is very small, allowing it to penetrate deep into the skin layers. This stimulates the production of collagen and elastin, which helps treat fine lines and skin ageing. In addition, peeling exfoliates the top skin layer and restores the skin. This slowly reduces the appearance of hyperpigmentation caused by sun damage or a pregnancy mask.
A TCA peel is suitable for all skin types, from the lightest to the darkest skin. Even thinning or sensitive skin can be treated well. It is important to properly prepare the skin for the peel by keeping the skin barrier intact and healthy. This can be done by using cleansers and toners based on glycolic acid, vitamin A or retinol, and using UV protection, among other things. The skin therapist decides what concentration of TCA to use, this can be gradually built up based on the skin condition and the client’s desire.
After treatment, the skin may feel dry, tight and tight, and itching or burning may occur. The skin may also look darker and the peeling process may begin. This takes 3-7 days on average. The result of a TCA peel is a fresher appearance of the skin, improvement of skin condition, brightening of pigmentation spots, refinement of skin texture, and reduction of fine lines. The result depends on several factors such as skin condition, preparation and aftercare with skin-enhancing products and UV protection.
What skin reactions can occur after intense peel treatment?
Various skin reactions may occur after an intensive peeling treatment. The skin may feel dry and red for the first two days after the peeling. After that, the skin may turn darker and begin to flake. This flaking may persist for up to five to seven days. During the recovery process, it is important to protect the skin well from the sun and avoid using harsh skin care products. It is normal for the skin to be sensitive and fragile after a peel, so it is important to be careful and follow the specialist’s instructions. The final result of the peeling treatment is a levelled skin tone and texture, and a stimulation of the deeper skin layers. An intensive peeling treatment may be suitable for people with acne, melasma, sun-damaged skin, ageing skin, coarse skin texture, coarse pores and sallow skin tone. For a professional peeling treatment, it is always advisable to seek advice from an experienced specialist.
