I am scheduled for a tuck up (see my face lift review) and decided to go for the chemical peel while I am under, which I had opted out of when Dr. Winslow did my face lift last year. I had skipped it because I was not ready to give up tanning. Tanning would destroy the results of the TCA peel.... READ MORE

I had worked up from 25% to 40% due to the deep scars, WOULDENT RECOMEND DOING IT ON YOUR OWN. the frosting was instant then the burning fow two min the neutralized it. Well I... READ MORE

GOAL: My primary goal of this process is to fix the texture of my skin that was damaged from the ProFractional with MicroLaserPeel laser I had 3 years ago when I was only 23 years old. My secondary goal is to fix the acne scarring. THE SYNOPSIS ABOUT LASER DAMAGE: The dermatologist who did my... READ MORE

30 mins ago I applied 25% tca peel. It stung badly but this wore off after 5 minutes. My skin didn't frost after the first layer so after 10 minutes I applied a second layer. After 10 minutes my entire face frosted. I then washed this off with water and applied a thick layer of moisturiser... READ MORE

I had frosting but im not sure if its scarred yet, so since my knees are darker and I used this area as a testing spot will it take longer to peel or have I... READ MORE

After researching TCA peels and getting familiar all of the precautions, I decided to try my own. Amazon has a wide selection of chemical peels. Homwever, a 25% TCA is about the strongest peel someone should ever try at home. I used Retin-A for a few months before the peel, which I read was... READ MORE

I prepared my skin for a year with Retin-a and and 6 months alternating with a properly pH balanced AHA serum. In the past, I've had professional glycolic peels and microdermabrasion at hundreds of dollars. None have produced the results that the 25% at home TCA peel I did on myself have,... READ MORE

I used a 25% TCA peel on my eyebrows. I have a tattoo eyebrows that im not happy with so I thought I would try TCA to fade it before I got it re-done. First of all the 25% TCA peel is lighter than I expected, all I got from it was a slight stinging sensation which I felt was comfortable and... READ MORE

So I feel I would have a higher self esteem with them gone. I will be showing u my wrist tat. A star a poor tat at that... READ MORE

Last year I had IPL, which was painful but did earn me some results which I liked. My skin was much more even toned and many of the small freckles and tiny dark spots I had disappeared. In general my skin looked 70% better. I've always thought that I could tolerate pain well, but the... READ MORE

I was considering a TCA peel last year. I read up on it like gangbusters. I knew everything there was to know about the process. It was ridiculous how much I read. I ordered the product online and did a patch test. The patch seemed to heal very slowly, but I assured myself that due to the... READ MORE

Is this a normal amount of frosting? Too much? Or should I have applied a little more to the areas that weren't frosting? I used a 15% TCA from Skin Solutions. I did the test area, and had no reaction on Monday. I did full face yesterday (Tuesday) for a full 5 minutes, a little burning but no... READ MORE

I had a %20 TCA peel performed by a Dr. I had acne for about 10 years and now it stopped, but I had a lot of visible and ugly scars on my face and wanted to get rid of them. The peel hurt a lot and my skin became red the day of the peel, but next day the frosting spots became darker and darker... READ MORE
