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.
