- Don't apply the TCA to areas where you have used hair removal products, have shaved, or used granular exfoliation products or buffing pads for several days pre-peel. We need non-irritated skin for best results.

Pre-Peel Treatment Instructions:
Using alpha-hydroxy products, such as glycolic acid, mandelic acid, and lactic acid, for a week before your TCA peel will assist in "prime" the skin for the TCA. On the other hand, do not use an alpha hydroxy acid, or any other acid, on the same day as your TCA peel. While preparing the skin isn't required, it may assist you in having a more effective peeling experience.
Always neutralize, per the instructions above under the "Instructions" tab. If topical burning from the product is too much for you during the peel, neutralize immediately. Once the acid is off the skin, the burning sensation will stop.
Use the results of your patch test as a guide for the length of time you leave it on the skin. Complete and concise instructions are posted above under the 'Instructions" tab.
Post-Peel Instructions: Post-peel, your skin will continue to improve for 14-21 days as cell turnover takes place and your skin returns to a normal pH level. Use your Neosporin for 48 hours post-peel. Consider our Argan Oil, Green Tea Moisturizer, or Peptide Serum w/Botanicals after 48 hours.

FDA December 2, 2002 Posting - Sun Sensitivity
Clients need to be aware that by using glycolic acid and other peeling products, your skin will be more photo-sensitive than normal. It is recommended that you use a sunscreen with an SPF of at least 15, preferably SPF 30 or higher, after using skin peel products. The FDA recommends using an SPF for one week post-peel.
