TCA Peels are the perfect non-surgical alternative to facelifts and other surgical procedures. Facelifts and other surgeries have serious recovery time and can result in scars and can even be overdone like in Kenny Rogers’ case (his skin is pulled too tight and looks artificial – the bane of all plastic surgery is that it is obvious). Facelifts and plastic surgery are supposed to look natural and complement your body, unfortunately that doesn’t always happen. Rather than actual surgery and excision, many people are flocking to what is called the non surgical face lift.
What exactly is a non surgical face lift? By definition it is an alternative to real face lifting surgery that should provide the same results. There are thousands of products out there that claim to be a non surgical face lift and, in some cases, even the fountain of youth.
But, the problem is that most (actually over 99% of these products do not work at all per recent FDA findings). Some may moisturize the skin, but only last a few hours until more is applied. A true non surgical face lift should not be minimal and only last a few hours. That would be a waste of time and energy. So what really works and is non surgical? The answer is the TCA peel.
A TCA peel (trichloroacetic acid) is a medium to deeper depth chemical skin peel that causes a controlled burn to the outer layers of the skin. This then results in the outer layers sloughing off and revealing younger looking and healthier skin. As of now, it is one of the best facial treatments on the market, and it’s also one of the most affordable.
The TCA peel has been proven extremely effective in treating numerous skin conditions from mild to the most severe forms of acne (even nodular cystic acne), acne scarring (it will shrink acne scars, fade and reduce so they become basically unnoticeable), all problems associated with aging skin (from wrinkles and fine lines to spots and other similar conditions), freckles and sun damage (freckles and sun damage usually disappear with 1 TCA peel application), skin pigmentation problems, and even actinic keratosis (pre cancerous spots) and surface skin cancers.
The TCA peel has been said as having the power to roll back the hands of time and rejuvenate ones skin by 10 to 15 years with 1 application. It can increase the production of collagen in the skin and tighten and polish ones facial areas. One application or treatment lasts from 3 to 6 months depending on the strength and depth used.
It is not recommended to repeat a TCA peel any sooner than this as the skin needs appropriate time to heal and return to normal. With these effects it is obvious that a TCA peel has great skin rejuvenation properties and being that it has been approved by the FDA for skin care use and is used in almost every plastic surgeons office one can conclude that the TCA peel should be made a large constituent of any non surgical facelift treatment.
Unlike 99% of the products out there that claim to be a non surgical face lift the TCA peel is the only one proven to work and is actually one of the most effective skin care treatments available today. Normally a TCA peel can be had at a plastic surgeons office for around $500 to $1000 per application. TCA peels, due to their being the safest and most effective of all the chemical peels and being far more effective than dermabrasion, have recently been made available for in home use at tremendous savings.
