TCA Peels

TCA Peels resurface the skin helping to reduce and eliminate the signs of ageing, fine lines and wrinkles, acne and scarring, pigmentation; and balance out uneven skin tone and texture.

TCA Peels are generally well tolerated by most people and great for treating more serious and difficult skin concerns such as acne scarring, severe sun damage and ageing, and pigmentation which your basic AHA/BHA based peels simply can’t reach.

We currently have 4 levels of TCA Peels available – each getting progressively stronger and more aggressive as required, depending on the concerns we are targeting.

They are highly flexible and can often be combined with various other modalities such as Laser Genesis, Skin Needling and LED.

We can mix and match different levels to provide a highly targeted and specific approach to your concerns. Ie. we may apply Level 1 peels across your entire face but use Level 4 to spot treat pitted acne scarring.

Consultation Recommended
– Level 1 & 2

Consultation Required
– Level 3 & 4

A consultation may be required prior to treatment.

This helps to ensure the treatment is going to be safe, suitable and effective for you, and will achieve the best results possible.

TCA Peels – Level 1 and Level 2

Level 1 and 2 are generally very well tolerated by most people and don’t require any special preparation. We do recommend you consider a consultation and prescribed home care to ensure best results.

You can expect mild-moderate shedding of the skin for up to 7 days post treatment. The skin is likely to feel tight and dry so it’s important to keep a basic, fragrance free moisturiser close by. Vaseline (pure petroleum jelly) can be used if required.

Avoid any form of hair removal or exfoliation 7 days prior to treatment.

Avoid direct, prolonged sun exposure prior to treatment. Peels can not be performed on sunburnt or wind burnt skin.

If you have a history of cold sores, we recommend anti-viral medication (discuss with your medical professional if unsure).

Specific post care will be discussed with you on the day as this can vary depending on the peel.

Depending on the peel, you may experience mild to severe shedding of your skin for 7 days post treatment.

Avoid strenuous exercise and swimming until the skin has normalised.

Sunscreen must be applied every day. Remain in doors at all time when reasonably possible. If you need to go outdoors, a wide brimmed hat should be worn at all time.

These peels are not suitable during pregnancy or breastfeeding.

Whilst peels can deliver some incredible results on their own, these results vary from person to person. We can not provide any guarantees that a specific result will be achieved.

Your willingness to use and your consistency with home care products (both pre and post treatment) will play a large part in how quickly you achieve any results, and the quality of those results.

We recommend discussing your concerns with us during a skin consultation. We can then tailor a solution specific to your goals and expectations.

What you need to know about peels!

Peels are often abused and misused. In fact, we often consult with clients that have been “over peeled”, over-exfoliated, their skin is damaged, sensitised and overall just poorly cared for.

FACT: stronger and more aggressive does not always mean faster or better results. This common misconception will destroy your skin faster than you can say ‘chemical peel’.

Peels aren’t bad. In fact, they can deliver some truly remarkable results and very quickly with minimal downtime, but that doesn’t automatically make them a good option for you. Peels can also cause significantly more harm than good if used under the wrong circumstances.

Also consult with a professional if you’re unsure!
