TCA Intense

Shipping Type: Small Supplies | See Shipping Policy for more details

TCA Intense works by coagulating proteins and dermal remodeling. This process will result in epidermal destruction, giving a medium-depth peel, and improving acne, acne scarring, sun damage, and aging skin. TCA Intense has a pH of 0.7. 

While we often focus on New cell growth, we sometimes forget that the First step in renewal is Destroying the old, broken-down cells! A Fabulous stepping stone for home use would be our TCA Moisture Peel 5-day cream.

Average Downtime is 5-8 days

For Fitzpatricks III-VI we recommend a series of lighter peels and homecare that consists of Vitamin A ( Anti-Wrinkle Retinox) along with a melanin inhibitor for a minimum of 4-6 weeks, preferably up to 6 weeks before your first peel

TCA is a highly regarded acid and is perfect for treating the following common issues:

  • Residual Blemishes Marks
  • Texture and Skin Tone Irregularities
  • Age Spots - hyperpigmentation - discolorations- melasma
  • Fine Wrinkles
  • Scarring and Acne Scars


  • Diminishes wrinkles
  • Lightens hyper-pigmentation
  • Control acne
  • Slows down the production of excess oil


Fitzpatrick 3-6 - prepare with a melanin inhibitor such as our Enlighten and Anti Wrinkle Retinox, as well as schedule light peel treatments for a minimum of  5-6 weeks before any medium-depth peel.

  • Review Peel Supply List and Protocol Prior to Treatment
  • ClearChoice’s® Post Care Kit is essential for peel aftercare.

Peel Procedure:

  2. Degrease: Using Peel Activator Solution (BHA FREE) or ClearBalance repeat until the gauze is completely free of debris and make-up residue.
  3. Apply Laser Guard to under the lash line, around nostrils, the vermilion border of the lips, and the corners of the mouth.
  4. Saturate a 2x2 gauze pad with approximately 3-4ml of acid solution. Apply a single even layer of TCA Intense to the skin, beginning at the forehead and working down to the jawline (short/ even strokes). IT IS NOT NECESSARY TO LAYER THIS PEEL. ”Frosting” will be visible. A fan may be necessary.
    1. This peel is Self-Neutralizing when used alone. Once applied to the affected area it CAN NOT be neutralized. To cool the skin, rinse the treated area with Hydrating Cleanser, and gently massage any residual hot spots. Water alone may spike and trigger acids to further process
  5. Apply a thin layer (Approx. 1 mL) of Pure C and/or Stem Cells evenly over the skin.
    Apply a thin layer of Arnica Recovery Gel to the skin.
  6. Apply Post Care Protectant mixed with Laser Guard or Post Care Protectant mixed with Sport Shield SPF • 45, based on the client’s needs.
