Dr. Rueda prefers to use Trichloro Acetic Acid (TCA) above all others as it has been one of the safest and most studied in the field of Plastic Surgery. It works by exfoliating and removing the cells at the top layer of the skin. This initiates a healing process in which the body replaces the top skin layer with new cells; it also causes the skin to regain some tone and elasticity by stimulating collagen. These combined effects lead to a smoother and younger appearance of skin that is treated.

The two main types of TCA peels are “superficial” and “deep peels”; this refers to the layers of skin that it manages to treat and regenerate. Deep peels are better at treating sun damaged skin, eliminating wrinkles, and improving skin tone. Law requires these “deep peels” to be performed by a licensed doctor like Dr. Rueda.
