TCA PEEL

  • Wear a UV protective hat or clothing over the treated areas to avoid any UV exposure to freshly peeled skin.

  • Cleanse skin with warm water using a mild, fragrance-free cleanser. Do not cleanse treated area with harsh soaps, use exfoliants, or scrub with a washcloth. Always gently pat dry with a clean towel.

  • After cleansing treated area and patting dry, apply a thick layer of a moisture barrier and reapply as often as necessary to keep skin moist and protected.

  • Do not apply retinoids, benzoyl peroxides, glycolic acids, or beta-hydroxy acids to your skin for 14 days. You may return to your regular skin care regimen 14 days after treatment.

  • Do not peel, scratch, or rub treated skin, and use a mild over-the-counter hydrocortisone cream if necessary. Mild itching is a normal part of the healing process, however, scratching can cause discoloration or infection.

  • Avoid sun exposure, including tanning beds, and be sure to use a sunscreen with a minimum SPF of 45 for at least 2 months after your peel. It is best to not expose treated area to UV whatsoever. Wear a hat and protective clothing if possible.

  • Do not airbrush or spray tan the treated area for at least 2 weeks after your peel.

  • Do not get laser hair removal, microdermabrasion treatments, or waxing services for 1 month after your TCA peel. 

  • After your TCA Peel, you may continue to experience some localized stinging and burning sensations. These symptoms are normal, however, if you notice any abnormal signs or symptoms such as discharge, pus formation, or swelling, contact us immediately.
