TCA (Trichloroacetic Acid) has gained significant attention for its ability to reveal refreshed and rejuvenated skin. Therefore, if you’re considering a TCA peel but want to see the process firsthand, we invite you to watch our video. Filmed right here at our Edmonton clinic, the video provides a detailed demonstration of the procedure.

Understanding chemical peels

Edmonton’s unique climate plays a significant role in the condition of our skin. The long, cold winters can leave skin feeling dry and looking dull, while the shorter summer months can bring unexpected sun damage. Additionally, the constant shift between indoor heating and the cold outdoors can result in dehydration, uneven skin tones, and accelerated signs of aging. Chemical peels are a boon in such conditions, as they provide the necessary deep exfoliation and rejuvenation our skin craves. They tackle the effects of harsh weather, daily pollution, and everyday stresses, bringing forth clearer, more resilient skin. For Edmontonians, it’s not just about beauty—it’s about restoring and maintaining skin health in our city’s unique setting.

How Chemical Peels Work On The Skin

Skin peels act by putting a chemical solution onto the skin’s surface. Thereafter, the solution dissolves the outermost layer of dead skin cells. As this layer sheds, it unveils the fresher, healthier skin underneath. The strength of the solution and its duration on the skin determines the depth of the peel. Mild solutions target surface layers, while stronger solutions delve deeper, addressing more pronounced skin concerns. Throughout this process, the skin undergoes a rejuvenation cycle. Moreover, the skin reveals a smoother and more radiant appearance with each session.

Types of chemical peels

The depth of the peel varies based on the potency of the solution and the duration it remains on the skin. Notably, there are three main types:

  1. Superficial Peels: Use a gentle solution; these peels delicately exfoliate the outermost layer of dead skin cells. Therefore resulting in a smoother and more luminous complexion. Common examples of superficial peels include glycolic acid and salicylic acid peels.
  2. Medium Peels: medium peels go deeper into the skin. Therefore, they address moderate skin concerns. Therefore, they minimize the appearance of fine lines, enhancing skin texture and balancing skin tone.
  3. Deep Peels: Representing the most intensive type, deep skin peels reach the most profound layers of the skin. They serve as potent solutions for severe skin challenges like pronounced wrinkles and acne scars.

Chemcial Peels Indication

Primarily, they are excellent for rejuvenating aging skin by reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Additionally, they are effective in addressing uneven skin tones, lightening age spots, and reducing freckles. Also, peel works on dark patches resulting from pregnancy or taking birth control pills. People with acne-prone skin also benefit, as the treatment can reduce acne inflammation and the appearance of some acne scars. Moreover, these treatments can enhance the overall texture of the skin, making it smoother and more radiant.

Aftercare for Post Chemical Peel Edmonton

It’s essential to maintain a cool body temperature. Activities that increase internal heat can potentially lead to hyperpigmentation. As a precaution, hot showers should be avoided since direct hot water in the treated areas could be detrimental. This cooling approach also means abstaining from hot tubs, steam rooms, and saunas. Additionally, it’s best to put swimming and workouts, which might cause excessive sweating, on hold. During this sensitive period, avoid using abrasive tools like loofahs on your skin, and keep hairdryers at bay to prevent any inadvertent heating of the treated area.

Selecting the Right Clinic for Your Chemical Peel

Choosing the right clinic plays a pivotal role in ensuring safety and achieving desired results. Therefore, begin by researching clinics that have a solid reputation for skincare treatments. Moreover, look for clinics with experienced, certified professionals who specialize in chemical peels. Additionally, it’s beneficial to select a clinic that offers a consultation before the procedure. This allows you to discuss your skin concerns, understand the process and set realistic expectations. Ensure the clinic has up-to-date equipment and adheres to the highest standards of hygiene.

Frequently Asked Questions

The frequency with which you receive chemical peels depends on your individual goals including your age and lifestyle factors. Generally speaking light treatments such as mild glycolic peels can be done every 1-2 weeks while deeper treatments such as TCA or phenol may need at least 1-2 months between additionsl sessions for recovery time. It is important to speak with an experienced skincare professional who can provide you with advice about which type of peel would work best for your case as well as how often it should be done for optimal results.
The recovery period and downtime following a chemical peel largely depend on the depth of the peel performed. After a superficial peel, expect minor redness and possible slight flaking for a few days, but most people can resume daily activities immediately. Medium peels might result in noticeable redness, swelling, and skin peeling that lasts up to a week.
It’s common to see redness, similar to a sunburn, which can last a few days. Some people might also experience swelling or blistering, especially after deeper peels. A few days post-treatment, you may notice your skin starting to peel or flake, and this can continue for up to a week. Changes in skin color, either becoming darker or lighter, can occur, and in some cases, might be permanent. There’s a small risk of infection or scarring, particularly if the peel is not done correctly or if you did not follow post-treatment care recommendations. Moreover, some individuals may also develop cold sores if they have a history of herpes. After the procedure, your skin may become more sensitive to the sun, making it vital to wear sunscreen daily.
People with active herpes flare-ups, open sores, sunburns, cuts, bruises, or especially sensitive skin should steer clear of this treatment. Similarly, if you have skin conditions like eczema, psoriasis, or other persistent inflammatory issues, it’s best to bypass chemical peels unless closely monitored by a medical professional. Moreover, pregnant individuals or those planning to become pregnant should delay the procedure until after giving birth.
It’s recommended to take a few days off from social or professional engagements during this period. Deep peels, the most intense of the treatments, require a longer recovery time. They can cause significant swelling, redness, and peeling that can last several weeks. It’s essential to closely follow post-care instructions and consult with your skincare professional during this time. Regardless of the peel depth, protecting your skin from the sun and avoiding certain activities, as directed by your provider, will be crucial to ensuring a smooth recovery.
