TCA SKIN PEELS:
Trichloroacetic Acid, often referred to as TCA, is an effective chemical agent used to exfoliate and renew the skin on a superficial to deep level. TCA is commonly applied to the face, neck, décolleté, hands and legs. In addition, TCA is also an excellent “spot treatment” and can be used to exclusively peel isolated areas of the skin.
The benefits of superficial TCA peels are many, but among the most notable is the ability to adjust the depth to fit the skin problem. As more coats are applied, the peel will get deeper, as the solution goes looking for protein to neutralize itself. The long-lasting results make it an ideal peel for those who prefer less peeling sessions at the cost of moderate downtime.
Trichloroacetic is generally safe for most skin types particularly normal to oily, sun damaged, dull, and uneven skin. Sensitive skin should progress product potency over time.
Improved skin tone, texture and clarity. Reduction of acne, clogged pores, scars, wrinkles and fine lines. Increase in collagen and elastin production. Trichloroacetic Acid is also beneficial for gradually removing unwanted freckles, tattoos and scars.
Maintain long-term results of a Trichloroacetic Peel with regular use of MedPeel’s Anti-Wrinkle Collagen Activator Serum as well as habitual use of SPF 30 or higher.
LACTIC SKIN PEELS:
Lactic acid. Lactic acid is derived from sour milk. It's an alpha hydroxy acid like glycolic acid, but is much gentler and helps the skin maintain its ideal PH factor.Lactic acid peels help to remove germs, dead cells and toxins from the skin.
Lactic Acid is a non-irritating rapid exfoliator. If you are new to chemical peeling, this is the peel to try. If you have sensitive skin, lactic acid should work well for you. If you've hit a plateau with other acid treatments, this is a great alternative.
I'M FABULOUS Cosmetics has a lactic peel (Bio Gorgeous Peel) and a great two TCA peels.
