With so many peels out there, you should take precaution when thinking you can perform one at home. Today we are going to talk about one of the stronger peels, the TCA peel.
This peel is powerful, so attempting to do one on your own at home is strongly discouraged since this peel can leave you with hyperpigmentation or scarring that can last forever when you do not have professional guidance. However, when you receive your TCA peel from a skilled and experienced professional, your skin will look wonderfully rejuvenated and repaired, with very little risk of complications. Let’s take a closer look at the TCA peel now.
AT-HOME TCA PEEL VS. IN-OFFICE TCA PEEL
TCA peels, or trichloroacetic acid peels, are medium-strength chemical peels that effectively treat a variety of skin issues. The PCA peel strengths typically range from 6% to 10%. You might be surprised to hear this since we talked about how strong they are. However, though the TCA strengths are lower than other peels, they are much deeper peels than lactic and glycolic acid peels. So they will affect your skin more dramatically at a much lower strength than a lactic acid peel would.
Since TCA peels are so strong, you should never do them with any product that claims to be an at-home TCA peel. Many of these peels can damage your skin for months, or years, with redness, pigment changes, or even scarring.

WHAT DOES A TCA PEEL TREAT?
TCA peels are most commonly used on the face, neck or back of hands, but they can also treat the following skin issues.
- Brown spots, age spots, sunspots and freckles
- Fine lines
- The texture of leathery and sun damaged skin
- Certain types of acne
- Dull skin
After one TCA peel, you should see better results than one glycolic peel. Your dull skin will begin glowing, your pores will be cleaned out, the surface of your skin will be smooth and beautiful, and the appearance any spots, skin lesions, wrinkles or discoloration will be improved. It’s best to receive 2 – 3 peels for the most optimal results.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
After your TCA peel, the top layers of your skin will dry up and peel over several days. Though it requires about 7 to 10 days of downtime, it’s definitely worth the wait. Your new skin will appear undamaged and bright. You should also see less fine lines, acne, hyperpigmentation, and spots.
