Trichloracetic Acid Peels

If Goldilocks were to pick a chemical peel she’d probably go with a trichloroacetic peel. It’s not too mild, not too strong – just right. The procedure takes less than a half hour and the recovery time falls in the middle of the chemical peel spectrum; It takes longer than an AHA peel but far less than a phenol peel. Trichloroacetic acid is often used for wart removal, but as a peel it’s effective at reducing small wrinkles while also improving skin tone. The concentration of trichloracetic acid can be adjusted by a doctor so people with darker complexions are at a smaller risk of developing a bleached-out look.

Chemical peels are not to be taken lightly. It’s important to consider both the benefits and the risks. Still, if you’re willing to endure a period of recovery and red skin, you may emerge with the youthful glow you’re seeking.
