TCA PEEL 25%
An Advance Skin Rejuvenation System For Longer Lasting Results On Mild To Moderate Photoaging, Acne, Hyperpigmentation Issues, Superficial Acne Scarring.
TCA peel is a mid-grade chemical peel that penetrates deeper layers of skin providing deep cleansing and rejuvenation. The main ingredient of the formulation is trichloroacetic acid (also known as trichloroethanoic acid) which is an analogue of acetic acid as a highly toxic chemical absorbed through the skin with a strong bactericidal and anti-inflammatory effect used as a chemical cauterant. The TCA peel’s action is based on coagulation of epidermal proteins, destruction and removal of damaged skin cells, stimulation of cell division in the basal layer of skin, formation of new cells and uniform distribution of natural skin pigment melanin. The effect of the TCA peel depends on the depth of penetration according to its concentration.
10 -15% solution of TCA is used for a superficial peeling, 20-25% solution – for a medium grade peeling, while TCA concentration over 30% is never used for a skin peel treatment because of high risk of complications. Providing a strong caustic effect, high-concentrated TCA solutions can only be used locally for small (less than 1 cm in diameter) benign tumors removal.
