Peeling is one of the cosmetic solutions that are used to improve the appearance of the skin, as it is done with many different materials and acids, both chemical and organic, where a type called facial peeling by TCA has emerged in the world of skin peeling, as this type is done exclusively in cosmetic centers.

TCA is trichloroacetic acid, in which the skin is exfoliated chemically, as it is considered one of the strong acids that remove the surface layer of the skin, where we at the Excellage Clinic exfoliate the skin with TAC to get better results than other peels.
