What is the down-time?
There is no down time. You can apply make-up after the treatment.
Trichloroacetic Acid (TCA) peels can be used in many concentrations to achieve different effects. It is a safe procedure when it is performed by a qualified, experienced Plastic Surgeon. Although very infrequent, risks such as infection, scarring and temporary color changes are possible.
Typically, the skin is first thoroughly cleansed. Then Dr. Bloom will carefully apply the TCA solution. You may feel a stinging sensation as the peel solution is applied, but this feeling will quickly pass. A full-face TCA peel usually takes approximately one hour to perform. After a TCA solution has been used, Dr. Bloom will usually coat the treated area with a protective cream. The chemical solution can be applied to the entire face, or to a specific area, for example, around the mouth or eyes. A protective fine crust may form over the peeled skin. The fine crust will come off in about four days.
A TCA peel will help you achieve smooth skin with minimal risks. TCA peel patients are advised to avoid sun exposure for several months after treatment to protect the newly formed layers of skin and avoid hyperpigmentation (darkening of the skin).

Croton Oil Peel
The Croton oil peel is a great peel that can produce even more dramatic improvement in skin texture, tone, skin tightness and wrinkles. It improves sun damage and brown spots as well. Its depth can be varied from medium to deep depending on a patient's recovery time and specific needs. Deeper peeling results in a greater degree of improvement but also requires greater recovery time. The croton oil peels require 5-10 days of recovery depending on the depth of the peel. This peel dramatically improves wrinkles and tightens skin. The improvement can be dramatic. Sun damaged skin is rejuvenated. The skin's pink color may be lost several days to weeks after treatment.
