Trichloracetic Acid


 


What is it ?


Trichloroacetic acid (TCA) is a chemical peel agent used to treat changes in the papillary dermis. It is primarily used in preparing medium peels and can be present in lower concentrations in superficial peels. A TCA peel involves 4 to 7 days desquamation.


Attributes ?


TCA coagulates epidermal proteins, causing frosting on the skin (whitish colour) upon application. It accelerates cellular renewal in the dermis and specifically stimulates collagen production by inducing collagenation.

 


Who ?


For anyone wishing to treat their pigmentary imperfections.
