Cosmetic surgery is not always required to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. Chemical peels might be a great first step in achieving a more youthful appearance and act as a preventative measure to forming deeper skin creases.
Orbit Eye Centre in Calgary offers a wide range of Chemical Peels ranging in price and intensity.
The TCA chemical peel offered at Orbit Eye Centre is a stronger and longer-lasting treatment than a standard in-office chemical peel. It requires a medical doctor to provide the procedure.
The medication used is called TCA or TriChloracetic Acid. It is applied to the skin after it has been numbed by the doctor first. The use of TCA removes the outer and aged layer of skin and allows healthier, younger tissue to grow in its place.
The end result of this treatment is the reduction or elimination of fine skin lines and other skin problems like unwanted pigmentation.
The TCA chemical peel treatment involves the use of harsh substances on the skin. Patients usually see redness and irritated skin as the healing and growth of new and healthy skin cells takes place.
As the new skin layers recreate, the redness and irritation fade away, leaving younger and healthier skin.
