Skin Tech TCA 15% Peel
The Skin Tech TCA 15% Medium Depth Peel is a skin rejuvenating peel that targets photo-aging, acne scarring and pigmentation. It can be applied to the face and body.
What is the Skin Tech TCA Peel for?
The Skin Tech TCA Peel is a superficial, medium-depth peel which utilises 15% Trycloratic Acid in order to rejuvenate the skin in the epidermal and papillary dermal layers (i.e. the outermost layers and those directly beneath them).
This peel urges the skin to shed, improving the overall health and appearance. The Skin Tech TCA Peel works deeper than Alpha Aesthetics' other peels.

A consultation is needed to ensure that this treatment is suitable for your skin.
How do I prepare my skin before the Skin Tech TCA Peel?
After the initial consultation, we will advise on the steps you need to take on preparing your skin, which may include avoiding certain products up to 2 weeks before the treatment.
In some cases, we may also recommend certain treatments to maximise your results or reduce any side effects, depending on your skin type and the concerns we're targeting.
Is it painful?
You may experience slight sensations of burning and stinging upon application. This feeling will pass quickly after the post-procedure mask is applied.
As well as this, the peel can also be applied in small sections to minimise discomfort.
When should I start to see results?
In the 2 weeks following the peel, you will likely experience some peeling as the skin sheds. During this time, you may notice that any current hyper-pigmentation may appear darker, however this will lighten over the coming weeks as the skin finishes shedding and the healthier, brighter layers are revealed.
How often should I get the Skin Tech TCA Peel?
This will depend on the skin concern and area we are targeting. In many cases, the results from just one peel will be very significant, but a series of treatments will always provide a better result overall. In the initial consultation, we can talk through what your skin goals are find the most suitable treatment for you!
How do I take care of my skin afterwards?
Following treatment, you may experience some redness, dryness and severe peeling for up to 10 days. We will provide you with a full aftercare pack to take home, complete with full instructions on how to use the products.
