TCA Peels

Stimulates the dermis to produce healthier collagen resulting in a brighter fresher look with softening of lines, wrinkles and pigmentation.

Skin Tech Easy TCA Peels can be used on all types of skin e.g. fine skin, normal skin or greasy or thick skin. There is no need for any skin preparation when using an Easy TCA Peel.

Procedure

The skin is cleansed, and the solution is applied in several layers using cotton buds. After applying the Easy TCA Peel to the skin the patient will experience some heat or irritation. This shows the product is working. The practitioner will be looking for any visible signs of 'frosting' (whitening) of the skin, after which they will apply a post peel cream, which will immediately stop the irritation. After approximately 30 minutes to one hour the skin will feel more taut and healthy.

Your skin will start to darken after 3-5 days and will then start to flake. When you do start to peel, do not rub the skin harshly or use exfoliant products, these can cause redness, irritation and possibly infection. Continue to use the moisturising cream recommended by your Easy TCA Peel clinic as directed.

Post Procedure Instructions

It is important to remember that whilst undergoing treatment with Easy TCA Peel the skin has little or no protection to UV light (both UVA and UVB). Therefore it is important not to expose the skin to sun light, or sun bed use for at least two weeks following the Easy TCA Peel treatment. You should always wear a sunscreen (minimum SPF25), we recommend SkinCeuticals Tinted Moisturiser with SPF 50, even in winter. It is very important to remember that you should not use moisturising creams that contain fruit acids as these may cause dryness and irritation.
