TCA (Trichloroacetic Acid) is a modified synthetic chemical based on common vinegar or acetic acid. All TCA peels are considered medium depth peels for skin resurfacing and much more potent exfoliators than Alpha Hydroxy (AHA) peels.
It's a powerful exfoliating agent that works by removing the outer layers of the skin in the epidermal and dermal regions.
Your skin naturally sheds its outer layer on a regular basis, this process slows with age. Chemical peels are powerful tools used by Dermatologists and Skin Spa Estheticians to resurface and rejuvenate their client’s skin for INSTANT RESULTS!
Professionally formulated TCA 15% helps to reduce fine lines, crepey skin and brighten skin tone by exfoliating dead skin cells for a more youthful appearance.
We lose collagen due to stress, sun damage, diet and the natural aging process. It's the glue that literally holds us together.
According to "The Journal of Clinical and Aesthetic Dermatology":
"Chemical peels are used to create an injury of a specific skin depth with the goal of stimulating new skin growth and improving surface texture and appearance. The exfoliative effect of chemical peels stimulates new epidermal growth and collagen with more evenly distributed melanin."
