Here is a photo of a patient's acne journey with medical grade skin care and treatment. This patient received a series of 4 trichloroacetic acid (TCA) peels for his acne and acne scarring. A TCA peel is a chemical peel used for skin resurfacing. A solution of TCA is applied to remove the outer layer of skin, and allows new, healthier skin to emerge. TCA chemical peels are commonly used to treat sun damage, facial wrinkles, uneven skin tone, acne, and pigment abnormalities. We would individualize the treatment to your particular type of acne. There are many concentrations of TCA, and choosing the correct one for your skin type is of utmost importance.
