Chemical peels are a type of beauty treatment that uses a chemical solution to improve and smooth the texture of the skin. There are several different types of chemical peels available with Dr. Bertha Baum of Aventura Dermatology in Boca Raton and Hallandale, FL, including TCA (trichloroacetic acid) peels. TCA peels are a way for patients to dramatically improve the skin’s health and appearance with a single treatment session.
What is a TCA peel?
TCA peels are one of the most popular types of chemical peels available. They work by penetrating the skin and breaking down dead skin cells, which then allows new, healthy skin cells to grow. This can improve the appearance of wrinkles, blemishes, and other skin imperfections. They are commonly requested by patients who want to improve the appearance of their skin without undergoing surgery, and it can be a relatively affordable beauty treatment for both men and women seeking more beautiful skin!
Where might a patient use a TCA peel?
TCA peels can be used on any area of the body, but they are most commonly used on the face. They can be used to treat a variety of skin conditions, including sun damage, age spots, and acne. Patients will find that because these peels address a wide range of issues, they are highly desirable for patients who want to improve their skin’s overall appearance but do not want to undergo separate treatments for each skin concern.
