Trichlroacetic Acid (TCA) Peel:  TCA peels are considered medium-depth peels.  
TCA is a skin-resurfacing treatment.  It removes dead skin cells, uncovering a "new"
layer of skin that appears smoother and more vibrant.  As a result, it softens fine lines,
minimizes superficial age spots and other skin discolorations, and generally
improves the tone and texture of your skin.  You will need to keep the skin well
moisturized with Aquaphor for several days.  Within a few days, your skin will tighten
and darken--and then begin to crack and peel for the next 4-7 days, at which point the
tighter, smoother and more youthful-looking layer of skin will emerge. Use of
sunscreen for several weeks is recommended because of the susceptibility of
sunburn.  Please let Heather know if you are using Retin-A.

Pricing: $250 per treatment
