Be sure to read all of the instructions and watch our instructional video for usage instructions HERE before you start. Always test a small, inconspicuous spot first. Some people react with more hyperpigmentation.
Refrigerate upon receipt. If spilled into eyes or other exposed surface, rinse immediately with a lot of water.
This TCA Spot Peel Kit contains: a small vial with a brown cap, solution applicators, and a jar of our Restoration Cream. The small vial contains the active solution with the main ingredient trichloroacetic acid, a relatively strong acid derived from acetic acid. Be careful not to touch the liquid – only apply it with the applicator provided.
First, apply petroleum jelly as a barrier around the spot being treated. Give yourself about 1/4 cm margin (you only want the TCA to be on the spot itself).
To apply, immerse the applicator tip in the active solution. Squeeze the wet tip against the inside rim to remove excess and avoid drips.
Apply the TCA solution to your spot with the applicator by gently dabbing the wet applicator tip against the skin. There will be mild heat or irritation while the product is working. Continue dabbing the TCA onto the spot (wipe away any drips) until whitening or "frosting" occurs on the spot. Once "frosting" has occurred on the entire spot (this process can take between 1-5 minutes depending on the spot, refer to the video for what this complete effect looks like) apply Restoration Cream to immediately neutralize the reaction.
Make sure to apply Restoration Cream to the affected area each day, several times a day, during the healing process.
At first the spot will darken, then your skin will tend to flake/peel after 3–5 days. Not everyone sheds skin in the same way. DO NOT “pull” at peeling skin, as you may cause scarring and increase hyperpigmentation instead of reducing it. When you do start to peel, do not rub the skin harshly or use exfoliating products, which can cause redness, irritation, and possible infection.
Additionally, it is important to remember that while undergoing this treatment the skin has little or no protection to UV light (both UVA and UVB). Therefore, it is important to not expose the skin to direct sunlight for at least two weeks following the spot treatment. You should always wear a sunscreen with minimum SPF 30 (even in winter) layered on top of the Restoration Cream. If necessary, the process can be repeated after one month. Please remember to dispose of used applicators carefully.
