A combination of acids exfoliate surface level damaged cells while antioxidants soothe and nourish the skin beneath. TCA Peels are left on the skin for 6 hours to slowly penetrate lower layers and provide an even result leaving your youngest, healthiest cells most visible.
Clients can feel mild to moderate heat or a brief tingling sensation. A fan is used to cool the skin and nourishing products are applied post treatment.
Clients will experience mild to moderate flaking from 1-4 days. If you have oily skin you may not flake at all, rather exfoliation will happen on a cellular level with dead skin and debris being absorbed instead of sloughed off.
TCA peels are gentle enough to be part of your regular routine. Every 4 - 6 weeks is recommended for optimal cell turnover.
Exfoliating treatments must be avoided for at least two weeks before. Discontinue retinol use and topical acne medication three days prior.
Avoid cleansing with hot water. No workouts for 24 hours. Makeup should not be worn during the healing process. Suncreen all day!
