The 30% TCA peel is an extremely deep peel. We do not recommend the direct application of this undiluted solution to your face. This peel in intended to be diluted with the easy to follow instructions included with the package. The 30% strength will end up saving users money, since the percentages can be graduated as you move along with your regimen. **IF you are a beginner peeler - opt for the TCA 12.5% instead of the 30% unless you are confident in your dilutions. There are instances where you can apply this undiluted to a scar (TCA CROSS), or on the body. We recommend using extreme caution when doing this. TCA is generally considered safe for darker skinned individuals. TCA will improve color, freshness, texture, skin tone, and fine wrinkles. It will also improve superficial discoloration, such as age spots. It may improve blotches and can sometimes improve dark circles under your eyes. TCA is a natural 2nd step when other acids stop producing benefits.
*You must prepare your skin for any acid peel (especially a medium depth acid such as TCA). Please follow the picture link below to learn all about peels and peeling. If you are prone to fever blisters, the acid can cause a breakout. Prescription medications must be used before a TCA peel is applied or the breakouts could cause scarring. TCA may produce some unintended color changes in the skin. This may be prevented by using a bleaching cream 2-3 weeks prior to treatment and usually occurs with darker skin, but can occur in light skin. We highly recommend the Fading Gel for this purpose.
After you have prepared your skin for 2 weeks (using Fade Bright if you have pigmented skin or are prone to freckling), we suggest the following application process:
- Wash face with acidic cleanser.
- Dry and apply 1-2 layers of Peel Prep Solution B. This will aid in numbing the skin slightly for a more comfortable peel.
- Air Dry.
- Apply peel for suggested time frame on direction sheet.
- Rinse well with cool - cold water.

***We do not recommend the TCA 30 being applied straight or in layers (unless you are formulating it to a lower percentage - then those lower % layers can be applied multiple times). TCA gets its strength from being applied in multiple layers. A layer is a single application of the acid during a peel treatment. Multiple layers will be applied to progress the peel deeper into the skin – without washing off any previous layers. The first layer is applied (approximately a 3-5 minute time frame) - the proteins in the skin coagulate, then the peel self-neutralizes. Then the second layer is applied directly on top of the first. It will go through the first layer and coagulate the layer below (another 3-5 minutes) then self-neutralize. This process generally goes 2-5 layers.** If you have never had a TCA Peel before, we suggest applying only 1 layer the first time you perform the peel. You can then strengthen the peel with additional layers as you move forward in the process. We suggest the 12.5% for beginners and those with sensitive skin. **For reference - the Obaji Blue Peel is either a 15% or 20% (doctor's preference/patient's skin) TCA

I have had MANY TCA peels in a DR office so I did know what to expect. I can tell you this product is great! One thing I would recommend and that REALLY helps is to have a fan on hand. After applying the TCA, direct the fan on your face and you will hardly notice any discomfort! I do 3 layers aprx every 3 weeks to control dark spots and fine line. I don't know what I would do without this product, Thanks Platium Skin! ... (((Platinum Comment)) ... I would like to comment that the TCA 30 at its FULL strength is not to be applied - especially in a layered form. I am sure this client is applying a lower % that they have created from this peel. Probably a 10%-15% layered. Best wishes to you. Jennifer

I'm a guy who uses TCA. TCA is a miracle product really. It's unbelievable the improvement that you can make in your skin for so cheap and so simply by using TCA peels. A word of caution should definitely be taken, though, when using the 30% It is VERY strong, and if you do it in multiple layers, you WILL burn sores into your face and not be presentable in public for a good 2 weeks. Take it from me. I now use the 20%, which is still strong enough but not quite as dangerous. I just did 2 layers of 20% and my skin looks great. The fine lines on my forehead and under my eyes are completely gone. My skin is also smooth and soft.
Excellent for my acne prone skin

I do very (!) light peels (about 2-4 times / month) and it has improved my skin dramatically. I have tried everything in the world to improve my acne and nothing has worked as well as this (except strong antibiotics, which I don't want to take constantly). This doesn't irritate my skin like Retin-A or benzoyl peroxide. I am so happy to have found this!

Plantinum skin care has the real TCA peels. They come in the percentages that they are supposed to be. I bought a 30% peel from another site one time and it was extremely weak and diluted. Good products!

I have tried every serum, cream, lotion available that promised to reverse hyperpigmentation/melasma (due to 10+ years of birth control/hormone treatment) and nothing worked. With one treatment of TCA peel 30 almost 100% of my sun damage is gone! I've gone from wearing heavy makeup daily to cover and try to even out discoloration to just a tiny bit of concealer on under eye circles and blush. Yes, you do look scary for about a week, but the outcome is worth the few days. It does hurt even with the peel prep, but the pain doesn't last for more than 5 minutes. The directions included are complete and in-depth-Platinum does a wonderful job to insure that you understand every step. I also highly recommend using the Emu oil for after care...it seemed to accelerate healing and has provided wonderful benefits to my skin as I have used it daily since I first did my peel. Thank you Platinum for giving my back the great skin I had 10 years ago!!
