 TCA stands for trichloracetic acid, a non-toxic chemical that has been used for years to peel away the upper layer of the skin. TCA peel works on a similar concept as it makes use of this vinegar-like chemical to perform skin peel and remove the upper, damaged layer of the skin.

TCA peel works by removing the outermost damaged layer of the skin by peeling it off. This, in turn, exposes a new, undamaged layer of the skin. As a result, the person opting for a TCA peel gets to experience an even-colored, younger-looking and smooth skin texture after the treatment.

The outermost layer of skin removed by TCA peels primarily consists of dead cells, that make the skin looks dull and without a glow. The extent of the peel depends upon how strong or mild the peeling solution is, the use of which is dependent on the condition of the skin.

Typically, light to medium depth peeling is done to treat different skin conditions, including scars, spots, and fine lines. TCA peels can be combined with laser treatment or prescription creams for better results.

However, it should always be conducted by an experienced dermatologist as peeling deeper layers of the skin can have several side effects, including scarring and uneven pigmentation.

The number of TCA peel sessions conducted depends on the condition of the skin. Typically, lighter depth TCA peels require at least 2 to 3 sittings before the actual results are seen. Medium-depth TCA peels can be conducted once or twice a year.

The results of the peel can be seen as soon as the first session is over. After a TCA peel, the skin continues to improve as long as you keep it protected from sun exposure.

Diamond skin polishing treatment is typically conducted as an outpatient procedure, under the supervision of an expert dermatologist. Your doctor will thoroughly examine your medical history before starting the procedure. He or she might suggest you stop some specific skincare products, retinoids for one week before micro-dermabrasion.

This procedure starts with cleaning concerned skin properly and covering your eyes and hairs with ointment, gauze or goggles. After the preparation, the micro-dermabrasion machine is passed over the skin in stroking movements for a deep exfoliation. The intensity of the treatment can be altered by changing the pressure used. The loosened skin particles are immediately vacuumed away so that there is a risk from dead skin cells.

This treatment is less time taking and results in minimal discomfort. The cost of diamond skin polishing in India is considerably lower and affordable than other countries, which attracts many people from across the world.
