WHAT TO EXPECT
The 30% TCA Peel is a deep strength peel. It is the strongest peel we carry so significant peeling and a a few days downtime is expected. When the peel is applied you will feel a stinging sensation as the acid penetrates the skin. We use a fan to alleviate any discomfort.
If the peel was layered during application and left on long enough, then frosting may occur. Frosting is when the peel changes from clear to white during a chemical peel procedure. This indicates that the acid has penetrated the skin sufficiently. During the healing process it is common for the frosted areas to darken before peeling off.
The peeling typically starts 2-5 days after the peel procedure. During the healing process you can expect downtime and interruption of normal pubic activities. The duration of downtime varies according to the individual.
For experienced users who have successfully tolerated medium level peels
This peel may be ideal for those with more significant skin issues such as deep wrinkles, stubborn hyperpigmentation, sun damage, and acne scarring
The 30% TCA Peel is not recommended for darker (Fitzpatrick 4-6) skin tones due to the increased risk of post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation
