TCA Peelings Amsterdam

Medical peelings at KNAP Institute

An even shiny skin in no time? This is possible with the Pascaud Professional Peel or PH-Formula. Skin aging is manifested not only in fine and deep wrinkles, but also in sagging, coagulation of the skin structure, pigmentation spots and a pale skin color.

Skin aging is caused by a loss of elastin and collagen, the connective tissue fibers that provide tensile strength and firmness. With a TCA peel we can treat the skin in a natural way. After all, the skin is put to work itself. The result? A refined and evener skin.

About our treatment

For whom?

In principle, everyone is eligible for a peel. The special TCA peel allows us to safely and in a controlled manner remove the layer with the damaged skin cells. KNAP Institute uses different types of TCA peels, with different strengths. Together with the specialist, we will examine which treatment suits your skin. A peel tackles the following; fine wrinkles, coarse skin texture, superficial pigment, mild sun damage and smoker’s skin. In addition, deeper lines will be softened.

The treatment

Before the treatment, the skin is cleaned and prepared for the peeling. This is done by an enzymatic peeling. This peeling will give a tingling sensation. After this the skin is cleaned again. The eyes and lips are rubbed with Vaseline. The TCA peel is then applied with 2 cotton swabs. After applying the peel you will have a few minutes of annoying feeling, best described as burning and stinging. This feeling quickly disappears when removing the peeling. Afterwards, the skin may show a certain haze, redness and slight swelling, and may still slightly tingle. The skin is treated with 24h cream and SPF 50 after treatment.

After treatment

The skin reactions after the peeling differ per person. You will usually suffer from some flaking and minimal redness. The day after the peeling feels the skin tight and shows a brown discoloration. Then the dead skin cells will release and the skin will feel dry. The skin should be rubbed 24 hours a day with a greasy cream. After 4 to 7 days you will see the result and the skin will have a pale pink glow. The skin then looks fresh and well hydrated.

Frequently asked questions about medical peeling

For best results, we recommend the peels in a course of 2-3 treatments with 4 weeks between treatments. In order to maintain the result achieved, it is advisable to undergo a peel with some regularity, for example once a quarter.

• Since skin is to be prepared for the TCA peel, you should do an ampoule treatment for 10 days. The ampoules increase the water level in the skin. The skin is better hydrated. As a result, the peeling works better, more evenly, penetrates equally well, and not too deeply.

• Ampoules with retinol and AHA are used alternately for 10 days. The skin etches better and heals faster afterwards. The ampoules may also be spread over the neck. The ampoules can give a stimulating feeling on the skin. This is due to the acids.

• Men: do not shave 24 hours in advance. Preferably longer. Do not shave a week after peeling and clean the blade with alcohol beforehand.

• For skin repair it helps if you start using supplements such as Collagen boosters, vitamin C + calcium, glucosamine, multivitamin preparations, LaVisage. You start at the same time with the ampoules.

• Do not use SPF 50 for 2 weeks before treatment.

• The treatment effect is optimized if you use our products from PCA before and after the treatment. These products prepare the skin well and ensure a longer maintenance of the result.

• Try to avoid exposure to sunlight (including sun bed) after treatment. It is highly advisable to apply sunblock with a high SPF (minimum factor 30) during the entire course if sun exposure can not be avoided. This will prevent the risk of hyperpigmentation.

• Up to 7 after treatment, the skin may peel and show redness. Do not try to ‘pull’ any flakes or crusts.

• Smoking slows the wound healing process, making it longer before the skin heals.

• It is not recommended to use face masks, cosmetic products that irritate your skin and do not use exfoliating products during the course.

• We recommend using appropriate skin care between treatments. We recommend the following products: QMS, Oxygenetics, PCA Skin. If you are sensitive to pigment spots, you should use pigment-suppressing agents after the treatment.

• Oxygenetics professional camouflage products are very suitable for camouflaging the skin. This product is specially designed for after a medical laser treatment or peeling. Oxygenetics provides a very natural cover and allows your skin to breathe. In addition, this camouflage works anti-inflammatory, promotes the recovery of the skin and contains a physical factor for protection against UV radiation from the sun. Oxygenetics is available from KNAP Institute.
