Does your skin have acne scars, deep wrinkles, or uneven patches of skin? If you are looking for the right solution to treat these conditions, we suggest a mid-depth chemical peel. Also known as a TCA Peel, the chemical peel applies a chemical exfoliant that removes skin cells from the epidermis and dermis layers of your skin. The agents used for a medium depth chemical peel include trichloroacetic acid (TCA), Jessner’s solution, and glycolic acid. Our skincare experts at Love Plasma are happy to perform this procedure for you.
How Mid Depth Chemical Peels Work
This procedure involves a few different steps to ensure safety and accuracy. It can be painful for some patients, in which case we will offer you pain management or sedatives.
The treatment begins with a cleansing of the skin. We then carefully apply the chemical solution to one area at a time using a cotton-tip applicator. The solution sits on your face for approximately 15 minutes. We then neutralize it with an iced saline application. This step helps eliminate any discomfort or burning sensation. To finish off the treatment, we apply an ointment across your face, which aids with healing and keeps your face moist.
