What’s the difference between a TCA peel and other clinical peels at Avenue Advanced Skin Care?
Clinical peels are generally superficial to medium depth treatment, with not a lot of downtime. At Avenue Advanced Skin Care our clinical peels are performed by a Dermal Clinicians and usually consist of ingredients such as Lactic Acid, Salicyclic Acid, Glycolic Acid, and Vitamin A. Our clinical strength skin peels are results-oriented corrective treatments that are far superior to any spa facial in terms of visible results. Most of our clinical peels can be performed 2-4 weeks apart, and for best results should be performed in a course of approximately 6 treatments.
A TCA peel is a medium to deep treatment, targeting the dermal level of the skin. Because of the nature of the deep exfoliation, clients will experience 7-10 days downtime after the treatment. At Avenue Advanced Skin Care our TCA peel is performed by respected Melbourne plastic surgeon Mr Allan Kalus and consists of a 20% formulation of Trichloracetic Acid. TCA peels address cases of intense premature ageing and deep acne scarring very effectively. Significant improvement can be seen after 1 treatment, however for very problematic skin a course of 2-4 TCA peels may be recommended over a year. The growth of new collagen can take time, meaning that results will continue to improve for 6-12 months after treatment/s.
