is a chemical peel that uses Trichloroacetic Acid to produce a medium strength peel. This peel is most suitable on fairer skin tones. A TCA peel fades dark spots caused by sun and acne scars. It also helps diminish fine lines and wrinkles Since it is a stronger peel the down time is longer than that of a Glycolic or Jessner Peel.
The TCA peel is a non-toxic chemical called trichloracetic acid that is applied to the skin and is considered to be a deep peel. Because this peel is a deep peel it is recommended that clients do it only twice a year. There is about one week of downtime with this peel since you will experience a lot of redness and peeling.
At Skincare by Rochel we believe doing a TCA peel will give you similar results to that of a laser treatment. But this peel is a fraction of the price. The TCA peel will get rid of deep acne scarring, smooth fine lines and wrinkles, help get rid of hyperpigmentation, and even skin tone.

Jessner peels help with skin discolorations due to sun spots and acne scars. It is specifically good for the treatment of cystic acne.

Its a more gentle peel and can be done during lunch time at work. To achieve optimal results you will need to get a glycolic peel frequently about every 3-4 weeks for a period of 6 months.

It is a very safe and effective chemical peel with no downtime. The Glycolic peel will help fade wrinkles and fine lines, helps get rid of active acne, reduces acne scars and hyperpigmentation.
At Skincare By Rochel we use 10-30 percent Glycolic Acid on the skin depending on each client’s needs. The client will experience redness afterwards with some flaking skin, however there will be no visible peeling.
