Back to10 Things Your Dermatologist Can Do to Make You Look Younger, Faster
THEY CAN EVEN OUT SKIN TONE IN MINUTES
Trichloroacetic acid (TCA) peels—one of the most effective methods of removing sun damage and hyperpigmentation—leave behind scabs that take about two weeks to heal. But patients can skip over that rough patch with a new TCA peel released by Glytone this year. "It has 25 percent trichloroacetic acid and a delivery system that bypasses the very outer layer of skin," saysJeannette Graf, an assistant clinical professor of dermatology at Mount Sinai School of Medicine in New York City. "It removes damage without injuring the top of the epidermis, so there's zero scabbing." And while patients do experience dryness and mild flaking for a week, the long-lasting and immediate results are well worth it. "Most of the time, one treatment is all it takes to achieve a significantly brighter and more even complexion," says Graf.
