More About TCA Tattoo Removal

Most people think that once they get a tattoo that it's a permanent, but that isn't true. TCA tattoo removal is only one of the numerous tattoo removal procedures available to you.

TCA (Trichloroacetic Acid) is an up-to-the-minute tattoo removal treatment that is often recommended by cosmetic dermatologists as well as medical spas to assist in removing fine lines, wrinkles and acne scars on the face. TCA is a non-prescription skin-peeling product. TCA is also commonly used to take off calluses, stretch marks, age spots, genital warts and much more. People who have used this product have seen their tattoos fade and/or completely disappear.

TCA Tattoo Removal Procedure

TCA is similar in texture to water; you cover your tattoo with TCA using a q-tip precisely where you want it to go. And the good news is that this product does not need to be applied in a doctor's office, you can do it yourself in the comfort of your own home.

TCA works by creating a controlled inflammation on the surface of the skin above the tattoo. This inflammation stimulates the pigment or ink to break apart and surface to the top of your skin while stimulating new skin growth. Your own body performs the majority of the removal work when you use TCA and repeating the process of this controlled inflammation is what helps to fade or remove a tattoo. TCA is the gentlest treatment on the market to generate the controlled inflammation necessary for tattoo removal.

The recommend usage of TCA is once every six weeks. Once you use TCA it takes about two weeks for the treated skin to begin to peel. Once peeling begins it takes another week for all the dead skin to fall off. After the dead skin has come off you'll want to wait another 2 to 3 weeks before you begin your next peel.
