Trichloroacetic acid (TCA) and Phenol peels are medium to deep peels with efficacy comparable to laser in the reduction of lines and wrinkles (eyelids, “smoker’s lines” and acne scarring. You can expect a significant peeling effect and facial redness which fades away over about 4 weeks. TCA and phenol not only peel layers of skin they stimulate collagen production and give outstanding results. You can expect 2-3 weeks of downtime.
TCA CROSS - is a chemical reconstruction of the skin scars using trichloroacetic acid (TCA). It involves depositing small amounts of TCA at high concentration (70-100%) into the surface of the atrophic scars. This causes an inflammatory reaction and collagen fibres stimulation and an improvement of the appearance of scars. This technique may be combined with other treatments e.g. microneedling radiofrequency using SylFirm X.
A course of 3 treatments one month apart followed by maintenance is recommended.
Visible peeling may last for 1-2 weeks. Best results are achieved if chemical peels are combined with specialist skincare.
