TCA peels can alleviate several skin conditions

Although primarily used as a depigmentation treatment, we employ TCA peels to treat a wide range of skin conditions.

TCA peels for freckles

Freckles are simply dots of melanin beneath the superficial layers of skin. Trichloroacetic acid removes these layers, taking the freckles with it.


Reduce rosacea with carefully applied TCA peels

Rosacea engorges capillaries in the face, creating the condition’s distinctive redness. The swelling of these blood vessels causes an uneven skin texture and flaking.

Rosacea engorges capillaries in the face, creating the condition’s distinctive redness. The swelling of these blood vessels causes an uneven skin texture and flaking. Deep TCA peels remove the rough top layer to leave you with new and even skin.


TCA lightens scars and stretch marks

TCA peels are highly effective at lightening and even entirely removing superficial scars and stretch marks across the body, including those around the tummy, back and thighs.


Relieve wrinkles with TCA peels

By clearing the superficial layers of skin, TCA peels are an effective way to lift light lines around the face, such as crow’s feet, frown lines and marionette lines.


Remove xanthelasma bumps with TCA chemical masks

TCA peel masks are a highly effective treatment for xanthelasma. With a robust solution, TCA penetrates deeply enough to remove the yellow fatty bumps entirely.

Our renowned dermal clinicians

Our clinicians specialise in a wide array of chemical peel, laser, needling and dermal filler treatments.

What is trichloroacetic acid, and how does it work?

Trichloroacetic acid (TCA for short) is a mild acid with a safe record in the aesthetic world. Its penetrative abilities make it an excellent choice for improving skin texture. 

TCA chemical peel solutions are measured by their Free Acid Value (FAV), which marks the acid percentage in each dose. We offer Mesoestetic TCA chemical peels at various ratios to ensure you get the right strength chemical peel for your skin condition. 

We will gently apply the skin peel at your treatment in successive layers. Depending on your aesthetic goals, we will use solutions of various strengths.

How It Works

Who are TCA skin treatments for?

TCA peels can relieve acne scars, sun damage, pockmarks and pigmentation issues such as rosacea and xanthelasma.

TCA treatments are equally effective on all skin types, and we treat clients of all ethnicities, ages, genders and skin textures.

Because TCA skin peel solutions have various strengths, we can design a bespoke course to treat your specific conditions and skin type effectively. We can offer superficial, medium and deep peels to suit the depth and severity of all scars and wrinkles.

Who It’s For

Preparing for your TCA chemical peel

Within two weeks before your treatment, you must:

  • Avoid waxing or applying hair removal solutions to the treatment area
  • Avoid laser treatments
  • Avoid all chemical treatments
  • Avoid active products, including vitamin C, vitamin A or retinol
  • Avoid sun exposure

On the day of your appointment, you must arrive with clean skin, free of any makeup or skin products.


What to expect on the day of your TCA appointment

The TCA treatment will take approximately 45 minutes to an hour. 

We will apply a numbing cream to the skin we are treating at your request. While the procedure is relatively painless, more potent doses can produce a slight, noticeable stinging as it exfoliates the skin. 

Once we apply the TCA mask to your face, you must wait for it to take effect. After the necessary time has elapsed, you will be ready to leave.

On The Day

It’s essential to care for your delicate treated skin properly

The full effects of your TCA treatment will become evident in three to four days. At first, you will notice a significant redness on your freshly exfoliated skin. This is perfectly natural and will soon clear. 

  • Avoid scratching, flaking and peeling skin
  • Avoid direct sun exposure for two weeks
  • Avoid hair removal procedures and chemicals for two weeks
  • Avoid exercise for one week
  • Avoid makeup for two days
  • Sunblock is mandatory and must be applied every two hours for the next four weeks

Your new skin will naturally be quite sensitive. It will need to be thoroughly moisturised daily, and you will also need to avoid strong sunlight. With less pigment, your skin will be more prone to sunburn.

Frequently Asked Questions

How much does a TCA peel cost?

Our TCA peel price depends on the strength of the TCA solution used and how much you need to treat the desired area. 

We can only offer you a price after you have booked an initial consultation with our aestheticians.

What are the TCA peel ingredients?

The primary ingredient in TCA peels is trichloroacetic acid. But, a TCA skin peel solution is not pure TCA acid. The acid level in the solution is labelled as a percentage; the higher the percentage, the stronger the solution and the deeper the level of exfoliation.

The other ingredients in the solution vary by the product manufacturer but will usually include safe, neutral chemicals, skin moisturisers and essential vitamins to aid your skin’s healing process.

How often can I repeat the TCA peel treatment?

You can repeat your TCA treatment every 4-6 weeks. 

Treatment frequency depends on the state of your skin. After a chemical treatment, we must allow enough time for the treated skin to heal fully so it is strong enough for another round.

Your recovery time between treatments depends on several factors, including the acidic strength of the TCA solution used during your last treatment and the level of care you’ve taken with your skin since.

If you’d like to book another skin peel treatment, come in for a consultation first so we can assess your skin's state.

How many TCA peels do I need to see results?

TCA peels deliver dramatic results after the first treatment. 

In the first few days after your treatment, the superficial layers of skin will flake and peel off. This is a necessary part of the process. Once the dead skin is gone, you’ll see the fresh, glowing skin beneath.

Can I use at-home salicylic acid or lactic acid peels after my TCA treatment?

Do not apply chemical peels to your TCA-treated skin for at least a week after treatment. 

Fresh skin is extremely sensitive to chemicals and even sunlight. That’s why we strongly recommend you do not apply any chemical treatments to your skin for a week to give it time to heal and strengthen.
