We offer TCA peels at our offices. Chemical peels are useful in treating many conditions including certain types of acne. In addition, pigmentation of the skin in the form of sun spots, age spots, liver spots, freckles, splotching due to taking birth control pills, and skin that is dull in texture and color may be improved with chemical peeling.
Chemical peeling may be combined with laser resurfacing, dermabrasion or soft tissue fillers to achieve cost-effective skin rejuvenation customized to the needs of the individual patient. Areas of sun-damaged skin, precancerous keratoses or scaling patches may improve after chemical peeling.
Following treatment, new lesions or patches are less likely to appear. Generally, fair skinned and light haired patients are ideal candidates for chemical peels. Darker skin types may also experience good results, depending upon the type of skin problem encountered.
