Product Description

Tokyo Love Shop TCA (Tricholoroacetic Acid) Peel 30% is a deep peeling agent using professional grade TCA. TCA and less often used Phenol, are chemical agents of choice when it comes to professional chemical peeling otherwise known as chemabrasion. TCA has renewed interest and advantages. It is not absorbed by the skin like Phenol, and therefore, is free of the systemic side effects of phenol, which can not be taken lightly. TCA does not burn as deeply, so one is more likely to avoid total loss of pigmentation and hypertrophic (thickened) scars. Weaker chemical agents are more available, but, also with less strength, comes less effectiveness.

TCA can be applied repeatedly in one to three monthly intervals and its effectiveness is compared to Phenol with a much improved safety record. TCA is wonderful for the neck area and the tops of hands. A distinct advantage is that the strength can be altered to the needs of the patient. The inflammatory reaction is red and crusty, peaking in 48 hours lasting at least 10-14 days. Frequently a slight pink discolouration may last up to 3-4 weeks. The epidermal skin regeneration actually begins the second day after application and that is completed usually by two weeks. Although this is not a surgical procedure, it can be quite uncomfortable for several days, especially when the entire face is treated at once.

We highly recommend priming your skin with Tokyo Love Shop Retinoic Acid Cream for 3 days to make your skin more receptive to the forthcoming treatment. Tokyo Love Shop TCA Peels can improve wrinkles of the skin by improving the collagen and elastin fibers of the skin, strengthening and repairing them. It can also eradicate or lessen the appearance of acne scars, fine lines around the eyes and mouth, discoloration associated with the sun, hormones, and ageing. TCA peels will result in the skin having a red appearance for about 7-10 days and require absolute sun protection during this time.

1. Wash the areas to be treated(Could be face, neck or body) with a PH balance soap or an acidic soap. Never use alkaline soaps as it will make acid peeling useless. All Tokyo Love Soaps are PH Balanced soaps. We recommend using the original version for peeling as it is the mildest. Let it dry thoroughly.
2. Using a cotton ball or cotton pad, Prep the areas to be treated using Tokyo Love Shop Peel Prep. An alternative is 70% isopropyl alcohol. Repeat this process until no residue or dirt is seen on the cotton ball/pad. Let it dry thoroughly.
3. Wear surgical gloves to protect your hands from unintentional peeling. Thinly apply Tokyo Love Shop TCA Peel 30% all over the desired area. Ensure that the cotton ball/pad is not dripping wet with the solution. You can use it for peeling the face, neck, arm, legs, hands and feet safely.
4. Leave it on for 5 minutes. Frosting or skin turning white is expected. This is due to protein denaturation. Burning sensation, tingling and redness is expect at this time. This sensation is easily relieved by cooling the treated areas either with a fan, air conditioner or towel soaked in ice cold water. Remember to wait for 5 minutes before patting an ice cold moist towel on the treated areas to make sure that the chemical is not neutralized too early. In clinics, topical anesthesia are usually applied first.
5. You can apply another layer depending on your tolerance by repeating step 3. For 30% TCA, 1 to 3 Layers are ideal. In case you noticed that a large area of the treated skin turns white (frosted well), you need not apply another layer. In case you noticed that only a few portion of the treated skin turns white, you can apply another layer.
6. Wash the treated areas with cool water, let it dry and apply a mild moisturizer. Tokyo Love Shop Peel Recovery Jelly is a good choice.
7. Your skin will begin to peel after 2 days. Crusting and redness are normal.
8. Do this process no more than once a month.


  • You can use Tokyo Love Shop Retinoic Acid 1% Cream by applying it once a day every night 3 days prior to using Tokyo Love Shop TCA Peel 30% for better results.
  • You can use Tokyo Love Peel Recovery Jelly immediately after washing and drying the affected area to provide soothing comfort to peeling skin and hasten skin recovery and healing.
  • You can use Tokyo Love Niacinamide Lycopene Complex Cream when the skin finished peeling (about 1 to 2 weeks) to enhance and prolong the effects of peeling.


  • As with using any other products, kindly perform a patch test. Apply a small amount of the solution on the inner side of your arm. If immediate redness and burning sensation is felt, wash the area completely with water and do not use the product.
  • Make sure that Tokyo Love Shop Calming Cream or Hydrocortisone Cream is available before doing any forms of skin peeling. In case of delayed allergic reactions such as rashes, excessive itching and hives: Stop using the product. Wash the affected area with mild soap and water and apply Tokyo Love Shop Calming Cream or Hydrocortisone Cream.

  1. 3 out of 5

    today is the 7th day of my peel for the entire face and neck. the face peeled 100% completely. the neck did not. and until now it still didntpeel. theres few rashes that developed and its itchy.

    as for the face, i wouldsay that it improved my skin.

    • out of 5

      good day!

      the skin in the neck is thicker than that of the face so layering for face and neck is quite different, however, the neck should peel about 10 days onwards, ensure its hydrated. For the rash, the neck is more sensitive than the face so it might be itchy during peeling so dont forget to hydrate and apply calming cream regularly,.

    i just used tca peel today for the first time and it super hapdi nya. i did 2 layers. i left the first layer for 4 mins then the second layer for 3 mins. then rinsed with cold water. my faceturned white.

    before today, i had 5 sessions of tca sa derma andmahapdi lng sya nung first time. ung mga succeeeding, kahit 5 layers di ku na nararamdaman.

    i gave it 3 stars for now then ill just come back after 2. weeks for the final result. i hope its worth it

    • out of 5

      hi! we translate some of your text and please correct us if you meant TCA is stinging and painful? in clinics, TCA is mixed with lidocaine making the succeeding peels numb. If it turned white/frosted already, dont do anymore layering and i think its already enough in you case and wait for the result. Ensure that your face is hydrated as its very important that it wont dry during peeling ^ ^ regards

  3. 3 out of 5

    I thought the treatment must be done once a month but why you told me that it should be applied once every 2 months? Which is which.

    • out of 5

      mike, start with once every 2 months first. The once a month frequency is for professional peelers with experience in peeling already.

  4. 5 out of 5

    I originally ordered TCA 20% as it’s my first time doing a chemical treatment on my face, but I received TCA 30% instead by accident I guess. But overall it sting like crazy when I first applied it. Ms. Isa Yumi from customer support helped me step by step on how the whole process was going to be.

    My face turned white, and on the next day I was really purple. Then after a few more days my face had brown patches from where it frosted. It looked really bad. After a week the brown patches started to peel off and underneath was a slight pink discoloration. This is the new skin.

    Fast forward after 2 weeks since the application my face looked amazing. I used to have large pores, black spots, and chicken skin. Now they are all gone. Everyone noticed how my face looked totally perfect, and I must say if you dream of having a flawless skin like the Koreans, TLS chemical TCA treatment is your answer.

    But of course you have to stand looking like you were involved in some fire accident for 2 weeks before looking a Korean celebrity.

    • out of 5

      Thank you! I remember doing the peel with you ^ ^ im glad you follow everything I said. Just repeat it when you need to look amazing again perferably once every 2 months. -Ms. Yumi

  5. 3 out of 5

    It’s been 4 weeks since I used this product but there are still traces of brown spots on my skin. I’m a bit disappointed. Although, there was a slight improvement. – See more at: http://tokyoloveshop.com/shop/tokyo-love-soap-professional/#sthash.PksVNMb6.dpuf

    • out of 5

      mike, you need to do TCA peeling for about 3 sessions atleast to get the desired results. Also ensure you follow our instructions carefully. Do TCA peeling once every 2 months let your skin rest and the effect of TCA is usually seen after 2 months.

  6. 3 out of 5

    Is it ok if I don’t pat with ice cold water after applying the first layer to my skin? Thanks!

    • out of 5

      the pain in TCA is a burning sensation and its best if you will pat it with iced water to make you feel comfortable. also if this is your first time mhike, 2 layers is enough. kindly email us at support@tokyoloveshop.com so i can guide you step by step.

  7. 3 out of 5

    How long should I use the Tokyo Love Niacinamide Lycopene Complex Cream after my skin has finished peeling? Thanks!

    • out of 5

      hi mike,

      you have to wait atleast 5 days before when peeling finishes as this is the time when the skin creates a new outer layer. Regards

  8. 3 out of 5

    Is Niacinamide Cream the same with Tokyo Love Niacinamide Lycopene Complex Cream? Thanks!

    • out of 5

      hi mike, yes it is.

  9. 1 out of 5

    Hi. I intend to do peeling with TCA but my skin is a bit sensitive and could get irritated easily. Could you recommend whether i should do TCA 20% or 30% or just to proceed with the 7days peel. TY

    • out of 5

      hi myaza, TCA is fine with sensitive skin, just start with the 20% and get our calming cream and also the peel recovery jelly. The prep peel solution is optional as well as retinoic acid cream that enhances the peelig effect.

  10. 3 out of 5

    I used this product on my back and arms on July 26, 2014 without priming it first with Retinoic Acid. Is it ok? Also, I applied another layer, eventhough, it was frosted and got a darker result. What shall I do? Ty!

    • out of 5

      mike, thats normal. Its ok if you did not prime using retinoic acid cream. It will go darker at first since it was chemically exfoliated but after 3-4 weeks it should be good already and you will see final results in 1-2 months. Update us

  11. out of 5

    mhy, KEU is not for inguinal area, its for knees, underarms and elbows. The intimate whitening cream is the best cream for the inguinal area.

  12. 3 out of 5

    hi I recently bought this, may I ask if its safe to use it on underarms? if so you cant use any kind of deodorant until the peeling is done? and can you use this in areas such as inguinaland buttocks? kindly advice thanks!

    • out of 5

      hi iamsher, sadly TCA 30% can cause deep peeling, areas that frequently rub against each other like the underarms is not suitable for TCA peeling. I suggest using tokyo love soap original + KEU cream instead. You can use it for the face and body though but not on areas where friction is common such as inguinal, underarms.

      thank you

  13. out of 5

    Sadly mhy, that is normal. You can google TCA peel to see the expected results when its peeling. it will be brownish/blackish/purplish but will disappear in about 2 weeks and it will normalize with an amazing results in a month. update us

  14. 3 out of 5

    If I apply 3 layers, in between of every layer after shall I pat with ice cold towel? Thank you.

    • out of 5

      hi Rachel, yes… burning sensation is felt in TCA peel but make sure you wait for 1 minute full before patting with very cold towel or else, the peel might not penetrate due to dilution. then dry your face again and apply the 2nd layer and so on.

  15. 5 out of 5

    Hello TLS Team! Just want to ask what product should I use for the removal of warts? I have lot of warts on my face down to my neck. Thanks and hoping for your reply.

    • out of 5

      hi meilee,

      TCA 30% would be the best for skin warts. you can opt to apply it spot or all over the face. thank you and update us

  16. 3 out of 5

    can i use TCA peel only on my smile lines and not the whole face to soften the wrinkles around the nose and mouth (smile lines)?

    • out of 5

      yes trish, you can do that…. ensure it frosts so we are sure it will peel. also take note skin tone will be uneven during first 2 weeks as the peeling area will be whiter and smoother.

  17. 3 out of 5

    Can I use a 30% TCA peel; instead of, 20% TCA peel? Thank you!

    • out of 5

      hi mike yes, you can use higher percentage peel as long as the skin can tolerate it. you just have to adjust layering to ensure peeling control.

  18. 4 out of 5

    is TCA 30% good for the face? is it not strong?

    • out of 5

      hi sweety! TCA is the best peel for the face, its the same as obagi peels.. 100% similar. 30% is the maximum you can use safely for the face.

  19. 3 out of 5

    My dermatologist advised me to take a 20& TCA peel but the price is way too high and the sad part was it must be done at least 3 sessions. Can I use a 30% TCA peel; instead of, 20% TCA peel? Thank you!

  20. 5 out of 5

    This is exactly what is being used in expensive dermatology clinics because I’ve been a regular in clinics. Although professional treatment is sometimes good and you just lie there and they take care of everything but for economy, this is awesome as well. You just have to follow the instructions carefully:) really peeled well and again I also used this to my mom so she can have the same peeling and it’s also working. Very effective product:) Amazing:)

  21. 4 out of 5

    I want my acne marks gone. How could that be possible? How many times should i use this product for my acne marks will totally be gone? Please help.. thank u…
    But i really love tgis product. Though it doest erase my acne marks, my skin looks brighter and my pores looks smaller.. :)

    • out of 5

      Hi angsiver, TCA is the single most effective method for blemishes, large pores, dull, dark skin, scarrings, pock marks and acne marks as well as discolorations and other multitude of skin problems. However, results greatly depends on how thick your layering is. Take note that you can layer TCA to peel your skin light, moderate or deep. For acne marks, deep peeling is recommended hence, a layering of 30% TCA at 3 Layers to even 5 layers until it frost (skin turns white) for 2-3 days is recommended but this will cause longer down time. Improvement is seen after about 3 sessions and it is recommended that you perform it once every 2 months. May we know how many layers did you apply, days and if the skin frosted?

  22. 5 out of 5

    I bought this product last month. I followed all the instructions given and my skin looks nice. But my acne marks was still theere… how many times should i use this product and after how many monthto peel again? I mean, can i use this again after a month?

  23. 2 out of 5

    how long does it take before the peeling is done?

    • out of 5

      peeling is usually complete about 10 to 15 days after the last application.

  24. 3 out of 5

    Can i prepare my skin with glycolic acid 20% prior to the peeling , if yes when should i start and stop using it . thank you

    • out of 5

      youtubelover, no you cannot sadly. GA is not a prepping solution. Retinoic acid cream is better in prepping the skin than GA, just use RA for 2 days prior to 30% tca peeling, regards.

  25. 4 out of 5

    itssdylann , can you give me your facebook to talk plz ,, i need help thank u for anwser

  26. 1 out of 5

    @youtubelover hey, If all thats left are blemishes, then I think its safe to use the product.. but if you have large, deep, active pimples, don’t use it.. I’ve been on different skin clinic, and they always tell me that they won’t do the peeling since my pimples are active.. they said that it may worsen the active pimples’ condition.

  27. 5 out of 5

    Hi , is it 100% secure to use this product cause i have a blemished skin so plz inform me about it so that i can buy it and use it to get rid of my blemishes , is it normal to use this percentage witout having any sideeffects cause people are afraid about , thank you

    • out of 5

      hi, if you have active acne… dont use peel as it will cause flare ups. We suggest calming your face first by using Retinoic Acid cream to make sure that no pimples are present during peeling. Sometimes, retinoic acid cream is more than enough to clear, clarify and make your skin look great hence, peeling is not anymore needed. Regards.

  28. 3 out of 5

    Is that normal to have a black patchees afterr 2 days of using this ???

    • out of 5

    Hello, I just wanted to send a quick note to tell you how much I love the TCA 30%Chemical Peel. This is the first month that I did not have a breakout before my cycle. I usually get lots of little plugs and congestion each month from my earlobes to my chin. This is the first time in many years that I am acne free.

  43. 5 out of 5

    After using this TCA peel I noticed a brighter, glowing and radiant complexion, my pores is invisible and my skin is amazingly flawless I love how it works on my skin ill surely repeat to use it or even try out their blue peel.

  44. 5 out of 5

    This stuffs awesome!!!!!!!! not only does it help with evening out skin tone, but for me it helped a ton with smoothing out my skins rough texture.

  45. 5 out of 5

    I tried your TCA it really burned my skin at first and I was so scared to death because of the redness and some red-purple-brown like things on my face! I thought I destroyed my face! thank god after 5 days when it is almost finished peeling I am quite amazed with my face and I really did not regret the whole peeling experience that is quite tense. Its my first time peeling and Im happy I used your TCA peels. Its now 2 months after I last peeled and my face is still as smooth and fresh as a baby.

  46. 5 out of 5

    I usually had my peel done at abby’s spa (downtown san jose, Ca) and its about 50 bucks per session.

    I bought your tca for only 20 bucks and I enjoy a monthly peeling session with same great results. I used it for 3 months already and its not even half yet. very cost effective.

  47. 5 out of 5

    I can’t stop looking in the mirror, my pores are already looking smaller

  48. 5 out of 5
