How does TCA Chemical Peel work?
TCA Chemical Peel is the strongest at home chemical peel you can buy! Not only does it make your skin smoother and reduces lines and wrinkles, but it also evens out your skin tone so that your skin looks and feels smooth and toned. Not only does this chemical peel result in a more beautiful outer skin appearance, but it actively stimulates the collagen under your skin, so your skin naturally plumos up. The plumping action of the stimulated collagen works even further in the transformation and elimination of wrinkles on your skin by plumping lines and scars. This results in an even smoother, more refined, beautiful complexion! Finally those annoying lines and wrinkles will be reduced and you can look years younger! Beautiful skin doesn't get any easier than this!
If you have not tried a chemical peel before, it is recommended you try a lower strength TCA peel such as 15% TCA CHEMICAL PEEL.'. This is a 30ml (1fl oz) bottle of 25% TCA, medical quality, pH 1 along with a detailed instruction manual.
Chemical Peels and your Skin: Chemical peels are a nonsurgical cosmetic procedure for your face. Chemical peels, also known as chemexfoliation or derma-peeling, are a technique used to improve the appearance of the skin. In this treatment, a chemical solution is applied to the skin, which causes it to 'blister' and eventually peel off. The new, regenerated skin is usually smoother and less wrinkled than the old skin. The new skin also is temporarily more sensitive to the sun.Chemical peels are performed on the face, neck, or hands.
They can be used to:
- Reduce fine lines under the eyes and around the mouth
- Treat wrinkles caused by sun damage, aging, and family history
- Improve the appearance of mild scarring
- Treat certain types of acne
- Reduce age spots, freckles, and dark patches due to pregnancy or taking birth control pills (melasma)
- Improve the look and feel of skin that is dull in texture and color
- Areas of sun damage, which may contain pre-cancerous keratoses that appear as scaly spots, may improve
25% TCA Chemical Peel Directions:
- This peel is very easy to use.
- You simply cleanse, apply, time it, neutralize and rinse.
- We include very clear instructions on how to use this peel.
- After you have applied the peel, your skin may be red, this is normal, and you may wear makeup to tone in down if you would like.
- About 2 days after the peel your skin will start to dry out and look leathery, brownish and aged, but don't panic, this is what we want!
- Your skin is preparing to shed off, and that will occur over the next 3-5 days.
- Depending on the depth of peel, you may want to hide out some during this time as the peeling can be heavy.
- We call this down time.
- You can encourage peeling by using warm compresses and taking hot showers, but you cannot pick at the skin!
- It must come off when it is ready to, not when you are ready for it to!
- By peeling off the skin you risk scaring by exposing skin that is not ready for the world yet, so allow the skin to shed on its own.
- As with all exfoliating products, the use of sunscreen is essential to obtaining the results you are looking for.
- If you are not able to commit to using a sunscreen, this is not the treatment you should choose as you will just damage your skin all over again!
People who are not candidates for chemical peels include pregnant or breast feeding, have herpes, use accutane, are immune impaired and have had problems with atypical scaring in the past (keloid, etc...).
Who are good candidates for using chemical peels?
fair-skinned and light-haired patients are ideal candidates for chemical peels. Darker skin types may also have good results, depending upon the type of problem being treated. However, the risk of an uneven skin tone after the procedure is increased.
What can I expect after I do the chemical peel?
Depending upon the type of chemical peel, a reaction similar to sunburn occurs following the procedure. Peeling usually involves redness, followed by scaling that ends within three to seven days. Mild peels may be repeated at one to four-week intervals until the desired clinical effect is achieved.
Medium-depth and deep peeling may result in swelling, as well as the presence of water blisters that may break, crust, turn brown, and peel off over a period of seven to 14 days. Medium-depth peels may be repeated in six to twelve months, if necessary.
