TCA peel is a treatment by which upper layers of skin are removed using chemicals or in rare cases mechanically. Usually it is a way to chemically exfoliate the upper layers of skin. TCA peel can range from mild glycolic peels to high concentration TCA peel bought from AMCSQUARRED. The type of peel used depends on what problem you are trying to treat. The most common peels used are glycolic acid peels. As they are mild they used to freshen and brighten up the skin, cure superficial skin problems like fine lines and mild wrinkles. The concentration of the peel gets high as the problem gets deeper. Very high concentration peels are used to remove severe wrinkles and deep scars and spots from the skin. High concentration affects more layers of the skin to get to the roots of the problem and removes them.
This method is usually performed on the face but is also applicable for neck, hands, feet or any other part to remove scars and marks. Cellulosic acid peels are generally used to cure acne problems. They are also very helpful for blackheads. If you go for a face cleansing treatment a week after applying cellulosic acid peel, you will get much better results because the fresh skin has lose cell bonding and blackheads are easily removed.

Although TCA peel treatment is not as dangerous as it sounds, still it should not be done without expert ( dermatologist, plastic surgeon ) supervision. If wrong agent is used, instead of curing your problem it may leave you with permanent skin damage.
The new skin which arrives as a result of skin peel is very sensitive. Direct exposure to sunlight may damage the skin even more. You will have to avoid direct sunlight on your skin for a few months very strictly. Also you will experience some after effects for a few days. The peel doesn’t come off at once like a mask, it takes a few day to come off little by little.
