The trichloroacetic acid (TCA) is a strong acid that causes a chemical burn, which can reach up to the deepest layer of the dermis depending on the concentration used. The treatment with trichloroacetic acid is a personalized treatment adapted to the needs of every skin type. Depending on the effect we want to achieve, your doctor will choose the density of the solution for use. During the treatment, the trichloroacetic acid solution is applied to the skin in order to cause a controlled chemical burn. The doctor leaves the solution to act for a few minutes. The treatment dramatically improves the appearance of the skin, by reducing fine lines and superficial wrinkles and providing the skin with added shine.
The peeling, depending on the concentration and the number of times applied, can yield excellent results in reducing discoloration and scarring from acne. The skin becomes smooth and shiny. It can be applied all over the face, neck and torso. The treatment is considered relatively painful and should be avoided in cases of local or generalized inflammation, those taking medication that causes photosensitivity, pregnancy and skin cancer.
