What Do I Need to Know About Body Peels?
Body Chemical Peels bring about a significant improvement in skin rejuvenation. In this procedure a low concentration of the peeling agent TCA (Trichloroacetic Acid) is mixed with a special base prior to its application. Application of the peeling solution on the skin initiates the peeling process and causes the topmost (dead layer of the skin) to slowly peel off. In a few weeks, a healthier skin replaces the old skin. Chemical peels on the body vary depending on the significance of improvement desired.

What to Expect from a TCA Body Peel
Dramatic responses to Chemical Body Peels are often seen in one or two treatments. However follow up treatments may be necessary to achieve optimal results.
Body Chemical Peels are one of the safest procedures available for skin rejuvenation. However, medical treatment is not an exact science and the degree of the improvement is variable. Occasionally there is not improvement and another form of treatment may be required. Long-term complications resulting from Body Chemical Peels are rare. Infections due to bacterial contamination may occur if post-peel instructions are not strictly followed. Temporary, mild pigmentation problems may occur and can usually be corrected using bleaching systems.
