Chemical peels are cosmetic treatments that can help make the skin youthful and beautiful again. There are different types of peel treatments available to address various skin concerns and preferences. The range from light, medium, to strong. Medium TCA peels can be very effective in not only providing relief from several skin related problems, but also for completely rejuvenating the surface layer of the skin.

What is Medium TCA Peel?

TCA or trichloroacetic acid is a chemical component in the medium peel. It can be used at various depths to achieve different results during chemical peel treatments.

Medium TCA peels penetrate the middle and outer skin layers. When applied to the skin, TCA causes it to exfoliate and peel off in a controlled manner. The result is a softer and youthful new layer of skin.

The treatment consists of cleaning the skin before the application of the acid. The chemical is applied carefully over the skin in a controlled manner. You may feel a slight tingling sensation on the skin signifying that the acid has started to work its magic on the treatment area. This is a temporary occurrence and should subside quickly. After the treatment is completed, the doctor applying the chemical solution will apply a healing ointment to help soothe the skin.

Over the next few days, the dead skin cells in the treatment area will begin to gradually fall out. The peeling process for medium peels can last for three to seven days.

After the treatment, patients will also need to follow some post-treatment care instructions in order to maintain the best results possible. These can include the use of sunscreen, prescribed creams, and sun protection. Some makeup application is possible, but applying a lot of it should be avoided. Most importantly, you should limit your exposure to the sun’s rays.
