This potent peel’s ability to evenly penetrate beyond the epidermis into the papillary dermis makes it an excellent choice for the treatment of photodamaged and acneic conditions associated with relentless hyperpigmentation and deep acne scars...
TCA medium strength peel reveals fresh, glowing skin at the cost of moderate downtime and peeling. It can effectively treat mild to acute acne due in part to its powerful anti-bacterial properties. Fine lines & wrinkles as well as an uneven and blotchy complexion can all be successfully treated.
The TCA light strength peel delivers powerful results even in its mildest concentration. Just after the first peeling session, the TCA 10% will have a noteworthy lightening, brightening and tightening effect on the surface of the skin coupled with minimal peeling and flaking.
The Superficial TCA peel
The benefits of TCA are many, but among the most notable is the ability of adjust the depth to fit the skin problem. For minor epidermal improvement, 10% will be effective. However, if the problems are in the papillary dermis, a stronger solution and more application passes will be required.
Up to 25% TCA concentration has been shown to treat melanoma, uneven skin tone, acne and improvement of overall skin tone and texture.
It is important to keep in mind that when applying the peel, the skin preparation, pressure, and application time of the peel solution will have an effect on peel results. Also note that the strength of the solution is not as important as the number of coats applied. As more coats are applied, the peel will get deeper, as the solution goes looking for protein to neutralize itself.
Experienced TCA users only. Moderate downtime.
Trichloroacetic Acid (TCA)
Trichloroacetic Acid, often referred to as TCA, is an effective chemical agent used to exfoliate and renew the skin on a superficial to medium level. TCA is most frequently applied to the face, neck, décolleté, and hands. In addition, TCA is also an excellent “spot treatment” and can be used to exclusively peel isolated areas of the skin.
Available Strengths: 10 – 30% (Results will vary upon selected MedPeel solution)
A Multi-Tasking Peel For Potent Results
The range of depth achieved from a TCA Peel varies according to concentration potency, application methods and of course skin type. Upon application, the solution goes deep into the skin’s dermis actively seeking protein to neutralize itself. The time and pressure employed will also have a substantial effect on the TCA Peel’s permitted depth of skin penetration. For minor epidermal improvement, TCA 10% Light Peel will be effective. However, if skin concerns exist within the papillary dermis, a stronger solution will be required.
The Skin a Peel
Unlike progressive, medium grade peels, such as Glycolic or Salicylic, TCA Peels exfoliate the skin more rapidly upon initial contact. The long-lasting results make it an ideal peel for those who prefer less peeling sessions at the cost of moderate downtime. TCA’s dexterity for treating a wide range of skin conditions from wrinkles to even melanoma makes it the perfect chemical peel for individuals with multiple concerns. Due to Trichloroacetic Acid’s antibacterial properties, the TCA Peel is a particularly excellent choice for individuals suffering from chronic acne vulgaris. Fine lines and wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, stretch marks, acne as well as an uneven skin tone can all serve to benefit from a TCA Peel.
Not All Peels are Created Equal!
Darker skin types (particularly African American) should proceed with caution due to an increased risk of post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation.
What Satisfied TCA Users are Saying
TCA Peel By: carysma2 from Livingston, Texas on 6/9/2010
First time using the TCA Peel 30%. It is very effective removing heavy wrinkles. I had very good results with my peel. I plan to continue using this product. I am very pleased with this product.
I have found the peel very effective. By: teresa from Nashville, TN on 5/12/2010
I found that to get the best result from the peel it is necessary to wait 2-3 weeks between the peels. There is an initial dryness and peeling that makes it a little hard to deal with but the end results are worth it
I would buy this product again and again By: Simona Brussels, Belgium on 4/15/2010
It's really simple to use, anyone can do this at home instead of spending lots of money at the "professionals".But don't forget to prepare your skin before doing it.The only thing thant isn't great about it is that the week after doing it you're not to pretty, but after this everything is great, your skin is brighter, soother and softer.

I happened to speak to the manager on the phone the first time I called. She was a true expert. She was also professional, patient, and very nice. I spoke to her at length and she never tried to rush me off the phone.I recommended this site due to her before I ever received my products.
I immediately received an email confirming my order, it's ship date and arrival date. The items I ordered arrived on time. I am very pleased with the quality of the products and would not hesitate to order from this company again.

Lost fine lines... By: Paganess from Burbank, CA on 1/13/2010
Took a few tries but the stuff worked & saved me a lot of $ not going to a dermo to get it done.
Love the Peel Product By: DJ from Seattle, WA on 1/11/2010
S use this about once a month to keep my skin looking fresh, smooth and lessen the apprerance of large pores and fine lines. I apply for 2 minutes and now that I am used to it I experience very little peeling or flakeyness.
I am very happy with the product. Though I would caution to test the time you leave it on your skin because it is intense and when I first used it I experienced alot of peeling when only left on the skin for 45 seconds.
