WHAT IT IS:
Trichloroacetic Acid, also known as TCA, is an effective chemical agent used to exfoliate and renew skin. TCA can be used to exclusively peel isolated areas of the skin, but it is important to note that with applying any peel, it is important to first begin building up the skin's tolerance by using a daily exfoliator for about a week prior to peel application. Higher strengths of TCA peels ( 20% and 30%) are not recommended for darker skin tones due to increased risk of post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation.
WHAT IT IS FORMULATED TO DO:
TCA is a deeper penetrating peel than AHA or BHA peels as it exfoliates the skin more rapidly upon initial contact. TCA peels are recommended for a range of skin conditions from acne, fine lines and wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, stretch marks and skin tone concerns.
FOR BEST RESULTS:
Before Your Peel
For best results, prep the skin for a week prior to peel application with a daily exfoliator. We strongly recommend conducting a patch test 3 days before applying a peel to ensure no negative or unusual reactions occur.
THIS KIT CONTAINS:
Mild/Moderate - Varies accordingly to individual skin traits. Minimal peeling and flaking is to be expected with a 7 to 10 day recuperation period.

Please read complete instructions that arrive with your peel kit prior to applying peel.
Step 1:Wash the skin with a gel cleanser and pat dry. Then apply pre-peel solution using a cotton ball to ensure the skin is properly cleansed.
Step 2: Apply the TCA 10% peel to a gauze pad and smooth it over the desired area of the face, neck or decolletage.
Step 3: Allow the peel to set for no more than 2 minutes during the first application. Observe the reaction and note the results. During future treatments, you may increase the peel time and/or add a second coat. If the skin feels uncomfortable, apply cool water gauze compresses to calm the sensation.
Step 4: Remove the peel by applying the Neutralizer Solution directly over the applied area. Rinse the remaining solution with cool water. Gently pat the skin dry.
Step 5. Apply MedPeel Daily Collagen Complex. Repeat application of Daily Collagen Complex twice daily and as needed to moisturize the skin throughout the day. Apply SPF 30 daily to protect the new skin from damage during the day.
