The primary challenge with hyperpigmentation is that its signposts show up at the epidermis while it resides in the deeper layers of skin. Now all peels work by removing a layer of sun damaged skin. In order to go deeper, they need to be applied in ever greater concentrations which bears the attendant risk of complications such as uneven action and scarring in some instances. That’s why TCA Peels are an excellent choice. They can be made to work at various depths with a more moderate action.
When TCA is applied to the skin, it causes the top layers of cells to dry up and peel off – not instantaneously but over a period of up to a week. Old skin gives way to new. A new layer of undamaged skin emerges, which has a smoother texture and more even tone.
It can be used on various parts of the body – the face, neck, chest, back, arms, and legs. However a lot depends on the expertise of the dermatologist because factors such the response of an individual’s skin to various concentrations can be difficult to predict.
