TCA Peel At Home

TCA Peels are an effective treatment to reduce unwanted skin blemishes and contribute to the overall texture of your skin. Trichloroacetic acid is one of the most common acids used, due to its dependability and effectiveness. The differing concentrations of these peels can be used for different results. A typical rule of thumb is the higher the concentration, the deeper the peel. To produce the results I am looking for, I’m using the 20% TCA peel. Typically, TCA acts as a more effective exfoliating agent. This is especially true with the 20% TCA concentration. If you’re considering a chemical peel, make sure to choose which is best for you. My Chemical Peels 101 Post goes over how to pick the best peel for your skin type.

After applying the peel, the TCA penetrates the superficial epidermis and begins its process. Frosting occurs as the TCA Peel neutralizes itself, marking the end of the peel. As an effective resurfacing agent, 20% TCA Peels help treat your blemishes and unwanted markings. Throughout the days following a peel, you will notice tightening, and eventually the peel. As your skin flakes off a new, fresh layer is revealed.

I reduced this 30% TCA down to a 20% by cutting it with distilled water. Watch the full video below to see how I did how I did that math. All of my TCA and other peels can be found on use code: Kaos20.




Before starting any treatment, it’s important to always prep and cleanses your face. This prevents harm or unevenness when applying the chemical peel. As I applied the 20% TCA Peel I used gauze pads. As you apply the peel, one of the main things you want to look for is frosting. The frosting is a sign the peel has affected the keratin proteins in the upper layers of the skin and it is slowly beginning to separate from the layer below. It’s important to note that everyone will frost at different times. Between each application, I decided to speed up the drying process using my  blowdryer.


Now that the peel has been applied, it’s time for aftercare. As much as I love TCA Peels, the pain caused by them is definitely not my favorite. To ease the burn, I used argan oil as a natural calming agent. Acid peels can majorly dry out your skin and lead to cracking. In order to prevent this, it’s super important to use moisturizing agents.


A couple of days after applying the TCA Peel, the treatment will start working. Your skin will become tighter and dark spots, such as freckles or sun damage, will begin to show up. Soon the TCA will cause your skin to crack and peel. This removes the topmost layer, leaving you with a new youthful appearance.


Argan oil from Makeup artists choice is a great oil to lather your skin up with after your peel. This is 100% Pure Cosmetic Raw Argan Oil – Cold Pressed. “Rich with Squalene, it also helps protect your skin from free radicals that cause sun damage. Clinical studies prove it’s ability to correct the age-related deficiencies that cause wrinkling and loss of elasticity. Superb for use after all your chemical peels, or any other facial treatment. Although Argan Oil is in fact an oil… it contains natural anti-inflammatory agents to reduce the appearance of blemishes. Acne sufferers can benefit from its sebum regulating abilities, which reduce oil production in skin. All skin types can enjoy firmer… clearer… and hydrated skin with Argan Oil.”
