When patients visit the practice of Dr. Daphne I. Panagotacos, MD, they are provided a wide variety of skin and body treatments. Patients who want to improve the overall quality, texture, and tone of their skin may be introduced to treatments such as chemical peels—specifically TCA peels.
TCA, also known as trichloroacetic acid, is a non-toxic chemical that has been used in chemical skin peels for over two decades. This specific ingredient, when applied to the skin as a chemical peel, can cause the upper layer of skin to slough off over the course of several days to a week, exposing the fresh skin underneath. This skin is smoother, even in color, and more youthful in appearance.
TCA peels are great for Westlake Village area patients who want to address:

  • Acne
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Melasma
  • Brown spots/age spots/sun spots
  • Areas of sun damage
  • Poor texture and tone

TCA peels are commonly used on the face, but can also be applied to the neck, chest, arms, legs, and back. They are effective on larger areas and are much more economical than laser therapies.
TCA peels are completely safe when handled by a quality dermatologist. Patients who visit Dr. Daphne I. Panagotacos, MD are in good hands and can enjoy TCA peels once or twice a year for continued improvements in their skin. TCA peels are a more aggressive peel than others done in our practice, and patients are encouraged to work out approximately one week of downtime as the skin begins to peel. After this point, many patients can address the redness in their face with cosmetics and return to work and other daily activities.
Dr. Daphne I. Panagotacos, MD of the Westlake Village area is excited to welcome patients into her practice for treatments of skin and body concerns. TCA peels and other chemical peels are available for patients who are worried about the health and appearance of their skin, as well as other medical and cosmetic treatments. Contact her practice today to learn more about chemical peels, laser therapies, injectables, and the other services offered through her state-of-the-art dermatologic facility.
