Trichloracetic acid (TCA) TCA peels are used to correct fine lines, superficial scars, minimal laxity and pigmentation problems. It is very beneficial to persons of all skin types. Ethnic skin tones such as Asian, African-American, Italian and other darker skins tones can safely undergo beneficial resurfacing. This peel can be used not only on the face, but on the neck, chest, back, arms, hands, etc. Anywhere you wish to rejuvenate or improve your skin. TCA is the active ingredient in the Obaji peel which is a 15% or 20% solution applied in multiple layers by a doctor. We do not recommend more than 2-3 layers be applied without a doctor’s consent.
Do not use a multi-layered 30% TCA peel at home.
Multiple layers of 30% TCA should *only* be used within a doctor's setting,
and administered by a medical professional.
If you are concerned about the strength of this particular TCA, then we urge you to begin with our 15% pre-mixed TCA peel... considered a "light" peel and appropriate for most beginners.
Always patch-test your skin before using on the entire face, per our directions.
