Why Get a TCA Peel?

Reduce Lines

Reduce Acne


Microdermabrasion unclogs pores first, chemical peel then penetrates deeper to combat oil and acne causing bacteria.

Acne Scars


Commonly incorporated into Results Packages to assist and enhance LASER and IPL treatments.

The Science Behind A MicroPeel

TCA (trichloroacetic acid) is a synthetic chemical solution used to peel the skin. It can be used pure ranging in strength from 10%-30% or in combination with other AHA’s such as lactic and kojic acid or hydroquinone, a chemical skin bleaching agent, used to fade melasma.

When applied, TCA coagulates and denatures the skin creating a whitish discoloration called frosting. Once this interaction is complete or neutralized, additional layers are applied until the desired clinical endpoint is noted.

What to Expect During a TCA Peel Treatment


A TCA peel treatment will take up 30 minutes.


Skin is cleansed thoroughly and then degreased with a prepping solution.


The TCA chemical peel is applied to the face, neck, chest, or hands evenly and in layers until the desired “frosting” response is achieved evenly over the entire treatment area.


While the peel is active peel your skin to flush and feel very warm. The skin may also feel itchy and tingly. These sensations subside soon after the peel is neutralized.


SPF is applied.


Skin will begin flaking 24-36 hours post-treatment and continue to flake for up to 7 days.

I go to Denver Laser Solutions for Botox and laser hair removal and all the girls are amazing. I usually see Mara, she is so thorough and welcoming and makes me feel so comfortable. The last time I went, she did my Botox and it’s literally the BEST job I’ve ever had. I’m very picky with my face, and this is the only place I trust for my injectables. I recommend to all my friends and family.
