A medical grade chemical peel features non-toxic, chemical solutions that are applied to the skin to help remove dead skin cells. At Lucent Aesthetic of Walnut Creek, we can use chemical peel treatments to improve the texture and smoothness of your skin. Chemical peels also help with reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, pigmentation, and scarring.
A chemical peel is best done in a series of 3-6 treatments in our Walnut Creek medical office to achieve the best results. With each session, you will see improvements. The overall result includes skin that is firmer, brighter, and exhibits better texture!

What are TCA peels and how do they work?
TCA stands for trichloracetic acid, a non-toxic chemical which has been used to perform skin peels for over 20 years. The TCA peel is considered a light-to-medium strength peel, which causes the top layers of skin cells to dry up and peel off over a period of several days to one week. After the old skin is peeled off, it exposes a new layer of undamaged skin, which has a smoother texture and more even tone or color.
What areas can be treated with TCA peels?
The face, neck, chest, back, arms and legs are all areas that can be treated with TCA peels, although they are most commonly used on the face.
