Power Peel (TCA, Jessner)

What is TCA Peel?

TCA peel is a chemical procedure that exfoliates the skin. There is a range of exfoliation depth, and it varies from superficial to medium to deep, where superficial peels work only on the top layer of skin and deep and medium and deep peels penetrate the upper to mid dermis. The strength of TCA peel can be determined with your esthetician depending on the condition of your skin. When applied to the skin, TCA peel exfoliates over the course of several days after the treatment, making way for a smoother and younger new layer of skin.

Benefits of TCA Peel?

  • Improvement in skin texture, evening of skin tone
  • Refinement of blackheads, sun damaged skin, spotting
  • Helps work through fine lines and wrinkles
  • Skin tightening

Who Is the Perfect Candidate for TCA Peel?

It is perfect for those with mild skin imperfections looking to enhance the general skin appearance. If you would like to improve the appearance of scars, pigmentation, marks related to acne – TCA peel is for you!

What Can I Expect After TCA Peel?

The results will start to appear approximately a week after the treatment, which with proper care of skin will continue to improve over the next few weeks.

What Type of Home Care Should I Use After TCA Peel?

The skin is likely to peel 5-10 days after the treatment.

  • Prior discontinuation of retinol/retinoid
  • Avoiding sun exposure while the skin heals
  • Broad-spectrum high-level SPF and reapplication every 2 hours


  • Pregnancy, breastfeeding
  • Accutane | Isotretinoin: current use or use within the last 6 months
  • Facial injections, threads, and Botox | disport within 2 weeks
  • Prolonged sun exposure for the last 2 weeks

Consultation is always conducted before any chemical peel at our clinic.

Treatment Overview

Who is TCA Peel for?

  • Results A marked improvement in scar appearance and overall skin texture.
  • Makeup Application Resume after the peeling process completes, typically 7-14 days post-peel.
  • Skin Tone Safe to Treat Caution with darker skin tones; patch testing recommended.
  • TCA Concentrations Customizable, with higher concentrations reserved for deeper scars.
  • Price Range varies with peel concentration and treatment complexity.
  • Problem and Solution: Deep acne scars require aggressive treatment to resurface the skin. A higher concentration TCA peel removes layers of damaged skin, allowing smoother, regenerated skin to replace it.
  • How Does a Higher Concentration TCA Peel Work for Acne Scars? Trichloroacetic acid (TCA) at higher concentrations deeply exfoliates the skin, causing the top layers to dry up and peel off over the course of several days to one week. The new, regenerated skin is typically smoother and less scarred.
  • Why We Like Higher Concentration TCA Peels for Acne Scars at AcneClinicNYC: These peels can offer dramatic results that are often visible after just one treatment, making them a compelling choice for those with deeper scarring who are prepared for the associated downtime.
