According to Allure Magazine, chemical peels are the secret to better looking skin.  TCA peels are in our opinion one of the best, most effective options.

TCA is considered a keratocoagulant, meaning it coagulates the skin’s proteins together. This process is a lot like cooking egg whites – the raw egg white is slightly clear and goopy and cooking it turns it white and hardens it.

TCA is a great acid that any skin enthusiast can incorporate into her or his treatment arsenal to focus on pigmentation and aging. If combined with other chemical agents (like Salicylic Acid), it can also show marked changes on acneic breakouts and the common side effects that acne leaves behind, such as post-inflammatory pigmentation.

WHAT IT’S TYPICALLY USED FOR

Trichloroacetic acid (TCA) can be used in a variety of concentrations
and is used to accomplish the following:

  • Smooth fine surface wrinkles
  • Remove superficial blemishes
  • Correct pigment problems 
  • Reduce brown spots and age spots
  • Improve the texture of leathery, sun damaged skin and impart more
  • More glowing skin
  • Improve melasma
  • Treat some types of acne

WHERE IT COMES FROM AND HOW IT WORKS

You might be surprised to know that many of today’s chemical peeling agents originated from household kitchen items. Take the hydroxy acids: Tartaric Acid comes from grapes, Malic Acid from apples, Glycolic Acid from sugar cane and Lactic Acid from sour milk, to name a few. Similarly, the more potent peeling agent TCA (trichloroacetic acid), is a modified synthetic chemical based on common vinegar, or acetic acid. However, it’s a powerful solution that effectively desquamates the outer layers of the skin without posing a serious risk for toxicity.

I’m Fabulous Cosmetics range of acne care products are specifically designed to calm and quell acne prone skin and alleviate the effects of acne scars and discoloration.   Naturally, heal skin with earth derived ingredients and beautiful botanicals.  We are your “go-to” option for truly natural acne care skin products, when you want solid results and also want to avoid harsh chemicals and synthetics.  Prevent breakouts with better skincare options, made fresh for you the day you place your order.

Some dermatologists, in fact, still prefer TCA peels for treating sun damage or melasma, usually in combination with prescription creams. TCA peels may be a good option, particularly if you have melasma, Because many lasers are difficult to use when treating melasma.

Lighter TCA peel product results are considered the best approach. This is similar to other light peels that usually involve hydroxy acids such as glycolic, salicylic, or a mixture of other hydroxy acids. Medium depth TCA peels are usually done once or twice a year and do require some downtime – usually about a week – when the peeling is obvious.

How much do TCA treatments cost?

A TCA peel or treatment in a doctors office or spa can run from $300 to $1,000 for a full face peel and are often done in a series. A full face, neck, and chest will cost more.

One of our TCA products will be a much more affordable option for you. One of the great benefits to using one of our products is that you can control the gradual effects over time.

In minutes, acids lift away dead cells and trigger a lovely chain reaction: “As that topmost layer is shed, signals are sent to the living cells below to multiply and move up, to increase collagen production, to make more hyaluronic acid—to act younger. “Your skin-care products perform better after a peel because there are no dead cells impeding their penetration,” says New York City dermatologist Elliot Cultz, MD.

Doing a TCA body at home will definitely save you money. Medical spa and physicians charges between $300 to $2500 per Chemical peel treatment. However, you can buy a TCA body peel online for under $100.

Most TCA body peels are ready to use and no mixing is necessary. The peels come in a variety of strengths or concentrations of acid. A TCA peel works by removing dead skin cells and stimulating new skin cell growth. People use TCA peels to try to get younger-looking skin, and to treat certain skin conditions, like melasma and acne scarring.

Is TCA peel better than glycolic peel?

TCA PeelsTCA peels are medium-depth peel that penetrates deeper than the glycolic or salicylic acid peels, making them a good choice for those with scarring or pigmentation issues. 4 Darden notes that this type of peel is medical-grade and can only be done by licensed professionals.

What does a TCA body peel do:

  • Balances oil production and clarifies clogged pores
  • Dissolves dry skin and bumps like those caused by keratosis pilaris
  • Softens the appearance of dark spots and sun damage

Can you see results after 1 peel?

You will notice a visible improvement in your skin after one peel, but best results are obtained with multiple treatments over time. … Just as it takes time for skin damage to accumulate, it also takes time to reverse it.

How often can I repeat TCA peel?

TCA Peels can be repeated more often than you probably think, every 2 weeks for Dermalogica Pro Power Peels, every 4 weeks for lighter TCA, and every 3-6 months for deeper TCA. It is recommended that peels be done in a series of 3 to receive the best results.

DID YOU KNOW:

There are many skin peels out there…. Jessner, Lactic, Glycolic, Phenol, TCA, etc…

The TCA peel is a peel that penetrates deeper into the skin without irritation….Doing a perfect TCA PEEL requires that you use the LEAST STRENGTH needed to abrade the stratum corneum layer. This is a percentage over 10% and under 20. TCA over this strength will cause the skin to frost or turn white (similar to a light broiler burn).

The Gorgeous Peel from I’m Fabulous ® has a proven theory of abrading just enough of the stratum corneum to cause the skin to send valuable protein to the surface. When you frost the skin too deeply, your body goes into wound repair mode where it creates antibodies, scar tissue, melanin and other secretions, which may easily cause the skin to age faster!

TCA-GORGEOUS-PEEL-5

Melanin is produced when you tan, and when you are wounded and when you have surges of progesterone (hormonal hyperpigmentation). When you go too deep into the epidermis or subcutis layers by using high doses of a caustic chemical, your skin produces healing protein to bandage the chemical peel. This is not the correct way to do a peel.

Due to the intense mix of active ingredients, it will cause a very fast drying and drawing of the topmost .01 micron. In most cases, this will peel almost instantly or within 24 hours.

The Gorgeous peel tends to be a rather rapid exfoliation and one that you can expedite by compressing a warm cloth or even using your ring finger to roll the dead skin off.

Questions:

Will the treatment help to remove my pregnancy masque?

Yes. However, you will probably need to do more than one Peel treatment.

Will the treatment help to remove my freckles?

The treatment will not remove freckles that you were born with. However, it will help in the removal of freckles caused by sun damage, pregnancy mask, and aging.

I have severe acne; will the treatment help my condition?

The treatment will help to treat the problems left once the acne has been properly treated under the guidance of your doctor or dermatologist. Such problems can range from, the marks left by acne, uneven skin tone, rough thickened skin, and hyper-pigmentation.

My acne scarring (pitted) is extremely slight; will the treatment help remove it?

The Gorgeous Peel treatment will only penetrate as deep as the epidermal (outer) layers of skin. It will never penetrate into the dermis (bottom) layer of skin. Therefore, if you are treating pitted acne scarring (as light as they may be) then the treatment will not be able to remove these marks totally as they generally tend to be deep in the bottom (dermis) layer of skin. It will however, help to make these scars less noticeable than they were before you did the treatment.

Will the Gorgeous Peel remove my pitted acne scarring?

If you are treating acne scarring in the form of darkened or reddened marks then the Gorgeous Peel treatment will help to remove these marks. The Gorgeous Peel treatment will only penetrate as deep as the epidermal (outer) layers of skin. It will never penetrate into the dermis (bottom) layer of skin. Therefore, if you are treating pitted acne scarring then the treatment will not be able to remove these marks totally as they generally tend to be deep in the bottom (dermis) layer of skin. It will, however, help to make these scars less noticeable than they were before you did the treatment. An ideal candidate for one of our treatments is someone who is looking for improvement rather than perfection.

Can I apply Makeup after the Gorgeous Peel?

Yes but preferably mineral makeup because you do not want to apply anything cream or moisturizing.

Is the Gorgeous peel good for all skin types?

Yes, dark skin and all skin types

I’m Fabulous skin care theory is to PEEL more than you HEAL!!!

The second benefit of facial resurfacing that is done CORRECTLY is the SURGE of collagen and elastin that occurs post peel.

The trick behind an awesome peel is to FOOL the skin into secreting a TON of natural collagen and elastin to the affected area. BUT! If you DO burn your skin, using high doses (some are very unrepeatable), then ALL of that natural protein becomes WOUND REPAIR and it will have NO benefit to your new skin growth, for it is used up on trying to HEAL the skin that is in trauma.

The concept of resurfacing is LOST on this type of peel because the skin spends MORE TIME HEALING than it does peeling.

A peel done correctly is a proven theory of abrading just enough of the stratum corneum to cause the skin to send valuable protein to the surface. When you FROST the skin too deeply, your body goes into WOUND REPAIR MODE where it creates antibodies, scar tissue, melanin and other secretions, which MAY easily cause the skin to age faster! Melanin is produced when you tan, and when you are wounded and when you have surges of progesterone (hormonal hyperpigmentation). When you go too deep into the epidermis or subcutis layers by using high doses of a caustic chemical, your skin produces HEALING PROTEIN to bandage the chemical peel.

The concept of resurfacing the epidermis (face) has been around for many years. 20 years ago, plastic surgeons were doing WIRE DERMABRASION techniques that removed the stratum corneum and about 10-20 full micron of skin. The healing process was devastating for most patients. They suffered from hyper (dark) and hypo (white) pigmentation and an uneven skin surface.

In the last 20 years and have perfected the technique of LASER RESURFACING.

However it is STILL both expensive and has a 4-month healing process.

Most people cannot GO 4 months without working or being seen in public.

The concept of resurfacing the skin using A MILDER technique of facial resurfacing is one that is beneficial in TWO very specific ways. By abrading (killing and removing) small amounts of skin, about .01-.03 micron per treatment, you will expose SMOOTHER skin after just ONE result.

I’m Fabulous has developed the “Gorgeous peel” it is like a slow laser resurfacing treatment, one that even with my microdermabrader, I could NEVER MATCH because, at one sitting, I’m taking off .01 micron, whereas the skincare products are a slow transdermal delivery removing a safe .03 micron per 4-6 days. Since it is ongoing, the new skin cell turnover is so RAPID; the anti-aging benefits are HUGE. This rapid turnover triggers a wound repair reaction, so the skin floods the epidermis/stratum with COLLAGEN / ELASTIN-DNA REPAIR. And since there is no wound, or fire to extinguish, these proteins simply begin repairing and rebuilding cells on their own. It’s TRULY rapid age reversal.

Is there any discomfort?  The application will sting until it has acclimated to the skins natural PH level. Although salt can shut this product down it is not recommended that you stop the peel before it has finished. I recommend having a cold wet cloth at the ready to hold and press onto the skin for comfort sake.

Is there any ‘down time’ that I should be prepared for? No downtime, you can apply mineral makeup only, if needed after the peel. You will feel your skintight for about 48 hours after the peel then your skin will peel off gently. You can redo the peel anytime, and you can even do 2 or 3 layers, meaning you apply it 2 or 3 times on your face then start looking at the clock to start the 3 minutes, then rinse off.

Seriously, how will I look? You will look fine! No worse than managing a peeling suntan!

Can I do a little test spot first? Yes! I insist that you do! In fact personally, I never do a full-face peel. I do my lower nasal folds and chin on one treatment and then forehead on a second week. There is no special formula of application that you have to follow.

How many peels will I get in this 1 oz. bottle? You will be able to do more than 100 applications with just 1 oz.

I’m Fabulous Cosmetics BIO-IDENTICAL PROTEIN SERUM or I’m Fabulous RETINOL 2.5% CREAM is highly recommended for post peel start applying on day #3 post peel.

The key to flawless skin is RAPID EXFOLIATION followed by INFUSION OF PROTEIN (hyaluronic protein).

Buyer and user must wear a Sunblock after the peel for several months.

  • If you are nursing or pregnant
  • If you have taken Accutane in last 6 months

Get a cold wet washcloth with soap and water at the ready.

Apply it quickly and don’t linger.

Avoid eyes and lips.

As more coats are applied, the peel will get deeper, as the solution goes looking for protein to neutralize itself. 

Do not apply anything on your face for 4 days. You can use mineral makeup immediately after the peel if needed. But no ointment, creams or serums. Remember you want to peel.

You can go back to your regular activities like going to the gym, to work, take showers go swimming, etc.

During the 1990s, a fair bit of research was conducted on TCA, mostly because (via chlorine) it can end up in the water system. Reviews of various tests came up with the conclusion that it is “not considered to be carcinogenic to humans”.

study on 65 people in Korea (using TCA at 65% or 100% concentrations) showed it to be an effective treatment for acne scars. What interested me about this research was the authors did not want to conduct deep peels because of complications such as damage to adjacent normal skin but instead used high concentrations of TCA targeted directly on each scar “pressing hard” with a wooden applicator.

A lot of great reviews on people also using TCA for sun damages or scarring on legs, arms and body parts.

Medium depth peels are usually performed with trichloroacetic acid (TCA) in concentrations ranging from 20-35%. Although there are formulations of 50%, they generally not recommended because of the high risk of scarring associated with this depth of penetration. Apparently, 11-20% concentrations of TCA will penetrate one–to-two layers of the epidermis.

What Is a Trichloroacetic Chemical Peel?

TCA is derived from acetic acid, a derivative of vinegar, and is available in concentrations ranging from 15–70%. It is applied to remove the top layer of skin from the face, neck, hands or other parts of the body.

A TCA peel chemically exfoliates the skin and reduces the appearance of fine lines, hyperpigmentation, melasma, acne scars and sun damage; it improves skin texture.https://imasdk.googleapis.com/js/core/bridge3.490.0_en.html#goog_20530828310 seconds of 30 secondsVolume 0% 

TCA peels can be performed at a variety of strengths—from light to medium—and can be customized by the number of layers applied and any prepeel agents used. 

How Does a TCA Peel Work?

TCA  breaks up keratin, a protein found in the skin. This causes the keratin to stop functioning properly, lighten in color and peel away from the skin over the course of several days. As the layers of damaged skin are removed, healthier, smoother skin is revealed beneath.

While a light peel only affects the topmost layer of skin, the epidermis, a medium peel can penetrate the papillary dermis below to treat deeper damage.

Strengths

The concentration of TCA used determines the depth of the peel. Lower concentrations provide more subtle changes in the skin, while higher concentrations significantly improve overall skin tone and texture while removing scars, wrinkles and hyperpigmentation.

Light peels of 10–15% concentrations can treat hyperpigmentation, while 20% peels treat sun-damaged or aging skin and minor scars. Medium peels of 30–35% treat deeper wrinkles, deeper scars and precancerous growths.

Although TCA in higher concentrations was used for deep full-face peels in the past, it is no longer recommended due to the risk of postprocedural complications. In concentrations up to 70%, TCA can be applied to very small areas of skin to treat individual scars or lesions. 

While peels of lower concentration can be performed on the face, neck, hands or any part of the body with sun damage, peels of 20% or higher should only be performed on the face as other parts of the body are more likely to scar. 

TCA Chemical Peel Benefits

TCA chemical peels offers many noticeable improvements to the skin, to include a reduction in the appearance of scars, signs of aging and sun damage.

TCA can be successfully used to lighten all types of hyperpigmentation, including freckles, age spots, dark patches and melasma

What does TCA do?

Joking aside, chemical peels have a lot of benefits! These include, but aren’t limited to:

  • deep exfoliation
  • treating hyperpigmentation and other skin discolorations
  • facial rejuvenation
  • unclogging pores
  • getting rid of acne
  • reducing the depth of wrinkles or acne scarring
  • brightening skin tone
  • enhancing the absorption of other skin care products

Facial skin peels are great and those facial treatments that literally dissolve dead skin cells, dirt, and oil from the surface of the skin will make your skin glow.

Organic skin peels are loaded with exfoliating acids and enzymes that are naturally derived from fruits, plants, and nuts. While a peel is a chemical exfoliator that usually has a watery, gel-like consistency, a scrub offers a physical exfoliation with a gritty texture. Using a facial peel or scrub can help exfoliate the top layer of the epidermis, removing dead skin and excess oil.

Did you know that skin damage is cumulative?

Meaning, without a time machine, there’s no way for you to reverse the damage that was done decades ago. But a good peel will certainly help – and all from the comfort of your own home.

You will notice a visible improvement in your skin after one skin peel, but the best results are obtained with multiple treatments over time. Just as it takes time for skin damage to accumulate, it also takes time to reverse it. Skins of all types can benefit from exfoliation. In the case of sensitive or acne-prone skin, however, we recommend going for a peel rather than a more abrasive scrub.

Do chemical peels accelerate skin exfoliation?

Organic skin peels are great to accelerate and enhance the process of exfoliation, diminish clogged pores, and clear away dead skin cells on your face, neck, and hands. These facial peels cause the top layer of skin to peel and be removed, bringing out the fresh, younger-looking skin underneath which typically contains less wrinkles and improves the look of the skin on your face.

THINGS TO NOTE ABOUT FACIAL PEELS

Regardless of the skin issue, you’re treating, even a good face peel shouldn’t be used more than the recommended dosage. While all of these contain extremely nourishing and soothing ingredients to replace the skin surface after the process of exfoliation, the peeling effect leaves your skin sensitive to damage from repetitive use.

The strength of some of these active organic ingredients and cosmeceuticals may have an adverse effect if not designed for skin that’s chronically dehydrated or sensitive. And when all else fails – do a patch test on your arm before applying a face peel directly to your face.

Definitely use sun protection when treating your skin. This will protect your fresh skin cells from damage and reduce the harmful effects of cumulative sun exposure.

CONCLUSION: Organic skin peels are a must for a glowing skin!

How common is it for people to undergo chemical peeling for the hands?

5 Reasons Why You May Need A Chemical Peel For The Hands:

1. If you have brown spots on the hands

2. For uneven skin tone

3. To lessen or eliminate wrinkles

4. To reduce the effects of sun damage

5. To remove scars from the hands

Chemical peels for the hands are now gaining a lot of popularity, especially as more and more people are finding out more about its benefits to get beautiful and younger looking hands. If you take a look at the many online stores, you will notice just how many varieties of chemical peel for hands are available.

TCA is a non-toxic chemical (trichloracetic acid) and has been used to perform skin peels for over 20 years. It is in the vinegar family (acetic acid.) When applied to the skin, the chemical reaction encourages the top layers of the skin cells to dry up and peel off over a period of several days to one week. When the old skin has sloughed off, it then exposes a new layer of undamaged and baby soft skin, which has a smoother texture and more even color.

Re-freshening of the skin’s appearance. Improvement of fine lines, actinic keratoses, sallow and uneven skin tone, post-inflammatory pigmentation and roughly textured skin. Acne, shallow and rolling acne scars, and melasma. Very beneficial to persons of all skin types. Ethnic skin tones such as Asian, African-American, Italian and other darker skin tones can safely undergo
beneficial resurfacing with proper preparation.

TCA works by coagulation of the proteins in the epidermis and dermis. It does not need to be neutralized like other acids. TCA cannot be neutralized; therefore a bicarbonate solution is not necessary with this peel.

The strength of a TCA peel is not gauged essentially through the percentage of the acid, but by the VOLUME of solution applied and the number of coats of solution. A light even coat, applied in multiple layers, until a light frost is achieved is the best way to get exceptional results.

HEALING POST PEEL: After your skin peel it will be important to keep your skin moisturized with a quality, healing product preferably organic. Like an organic hyaluronic acid serum or an organic skin lightening serum. Bacitracin, or another comparable product may also be used. Everyone skins heal differently and react to a peel differently.

Do not skip moisturization to try and speed up the peeling. Allowing your skin to become dry will actually cause the process to
take longer.

Skin fillers can also be injected by a plastic surgeon in you are losing body fat at the top of your hands.
