A Chat with Skinaddic
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition? TCA peels are commonly used to reduce brown spots and age spots, to improve the texture of leathery, sun-damaged skin, and impart more glow to improve melasma.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business? TCA is a nontoxic chemical (trichloroacetic acid). When TCA is applied to the skin it causes the skin to dry up and peel off over a period of several days to one week. When the old skin is peeled off, it exposes a new layer of undamaged skin, which has a smoother texture and more even color.
What do you love most about your job? Peels remove only the top layer, mostly called the stratum corneum.
What is the best reaction you've ever gotten from a customer? As soon as you finish peeling, you will see results continue to improve for 30–60 days.
