The TCA (trichloroacetic acid) peel is a medium chemical peel, meaning that it acts on the middle layer of the skin: between the epidermis and the dermis. The action of a TCA peel is therefore more intense than that of a fruit acid peel.

This peel causes chemical exfoliation to reveal new, smoother, more even skin.

The concentration of TCA increases with each session (from 15% to 30%), which is why we recommend a course of 3 or 4 sessions.

Benefits

  • Improves the radiance of the complexionChemical peel: the chemical peel is designed to exfoliate the skin to remove visible blemishes, through natural exfoliation resulting in cell renewal. The skin naturally regains its radiance and freshness. It's a "new skin" effect.
  • Smoothes skin and reduces fine linesTCA peel: through its action, the TCA peel erases skin imperfections and reduces wrinkles and fine lines.
  • Treatment of pigmentation spots : TCA also fades brown spots caused by the sun (lentigo and melasma/pregnancy mask).

During the session

On the day of your TCA peel session, the practitioner will meticulously cleanse your skin before precisely applying the trichloroacetic acid using a brush or cotton bud.

 

During the session, you may feel a sensation of heat and tingling. To ensure your comfort, we provide a small fan to cool the treated area during the process.

Results

Depending on the area treated, several peeling sessions are generally necessary. You may notice improvements after the sessions, but full results generally appear after 4 to 6 weeks, as the skin needs time to regenerate.

 

The skin is a living organ that evolves over time, so even if the treatment is effective, it is not permanent. Annual maintenance sessions are therefore recommended to maintain the results.

Good to know

After the TCA peel, the skin is red and remains so for 24 to 48 hours. The skin may feel tight from the next day. This treatment causes the skin to peel to varying degrees: the skin may peel for around 5 to 7 days. During this phase, the epidermis renews itself, revealing a rosy, luminous and smoother complexion, which lasts for around 1 month.

Pre-treatment precautions

  • It is advisable to stop using potentially irritating creams such as retinol serums and glycolic acid-based products (cleansers or creams) 1 week before a TCA.

Post-treatment precautions

  • Avoid all sources of excessive heat for 24 to 48 hours
  • Do not pull on the flakes to allow the skin to regenerate naturally
  • Do not apply any irritating serum or cream for at least 1 week
  • If possible, avoid applying make-up for 1 week
  • Avoid exposure to UV rays: apply sunscreen 50+ and wear a cap for at least 1 month.
  • Transient hyperpigmentation may occur, particularly in people with a darker phototype. To reduce this risk, a tranexamic acid-based cream may be prescribed, to be applied between sessions.

Contraindications

  • Pregnancy and breastfeeding
  • Skin infection in the area to be treated
  • Fever blister
  • Sensitive, itchy, reactive skin
  • Severe atopic eczema
