Hyperpigmentation can be a frustrating and challenging skin concern to deal with. Whether it's due to sun exposure, hormonal changes, or acne scars, it can be difficult to achieve an even skin tone. But don't worry, there's a solution: TCA peels. TCA (trichloroacetic acid) peels are a powerful treatment that can lighten and even out hyperpigmentation. This type of peel works by removing the outer layers of the skin, revealing fresh, new skin that's free from discoloration and dark spots. At our St. Petersburg, FL clinic, we offer TCA peels as a safe and effective way to improve hyperpigmentation. Our expert technicians will evaluate your skin and determine the appropriate concentration of TCA to use, based on your skin type and concerns. The TCA peel process begins with a deep cleanse of the skin, followed by the application of the peel solution. You may experience a mild tingling or burning sensation, but this is normal and should subside quickly. After a few minutes, the peel solution will be neutralized and removed from your skin.
After the treatment, your skin may appear red and feel slightly sensitive. However, this is only temporary and should subside within a few days. You should avoid direct sun exposure and use sunscreen to protect your skin during the healing process. The number of TCA peel treatments needed to achieve your desired results will depend on the severity of your hyperpigmentation. However, most patients see a significant improvement after just one treatment.
