Enhancing Your Natural Beauty

Physician Administered Chemical Peel

Tricholoracetic acid, also known as TCA, is a commonly used agent for
exfoliation and facial resurfacing. TCA is used to help lighten
pigmentation/discoloration, smooth fine lines and wrinkles, and soften
uneven texture in the skin. When TCA is applied to the skin, it causes the top
layers of cells to shed and peel off over a period of several days to one
week. The downtime can vary from person to person, but one should expect
seven to fourteen days of redness. Once the “shedding” process is complete,
you will notice younger, smoother, brighter-looking skin. This peel is
performed by a physician, and is not suitable for all skin types. To set up a
