Overview

Deep Chemical Peels, which include the TCA (Trichloroacetic acid) peels, are generally administered either under topical anaesthesia as an outpatient procedure, or under general anaesthesia as a day case.

Mr Cadier undertakes 20% and 35% TCA peels. This type of peel effectively removes the top layer of the skin, causing some redness and swelling for 3-5 days, and peeling at about 5 days. The aim is to freshen and rejuvenate the facial skin, by reducing fine wrinkles and sun spots, and stimulating new skin formation.

As well as on the face, all peels can be carried out on any part of the body including the neck, chest, back, shoulders, arms and legs.
