Chemical (TCA) peeling at Art Clinic

TCA (TriChloroacetic Acid) is a chemical peeling which is performed in various levels of dilution 15-25%. TCA is a powerful acid treatment that reduces skin. TCA peeling actively dissolves and removes aged and damaged skin. The treatment stimulates the skin to regenerate and gives visible results. TCA is best suited for chemical peeling of the face, the area around the lips and eyes for treating surface wrinkles and fine lines.

Before booking a chemical (TCA) peeling you need an individual and personal consultation with a dermatologist. At Art Clinic skincare department we tailor your skincare treatment after your needs and often together with the clinics doctors.

Procedure for chemical (TCA) peeling

The skin is thoroughly cleansed with a suitable cleanser for your skin type. TCA is rolled and spread over the face. Deeper folds are covered first in order to achieve a longer penetration. Pain can occur for 2-4 minutes and after that a burning sensation. The skin will first have a white frosting. That will then go red/rosy and the patient can go home. On the second day the skin becomes very dry and tight. It can even begin to flake and around day two/three a dark scab will appear. In some cases a scab will not appear, it depends entirely on ones skin type. Then the skin peels and the scab falls off. The result is a new rosy skin that one needs to preserve carefully with the recommended products. The rosiness can be covered with makeup. One should not suntan for 4-6 months after a chemical (TCA) peeling.
