I began by pretreating my face with Retin-a and a high % of an AHA.First he swiped Acetone on my face to raise the ph level then he did a Jessner's Peel which is AHA, BHA, and resorcinol. Then he did the 20% TCA Peel. I primarly did the peel to fade acne scarring. It worked great! READ MORE

I did a 11% TCA peel a couple days ago and the results were not good.. Underneath the flaking dry skin was: Blotchy, raw, larger pores than I began with and even darkening of my scars..although texture was baby smooth.. Petrified and infuriated, I decided to do something really dumb and try... READ MORE

I recently did a Gorgeous Peel from Anais Corporation. I purchased the EZpeel $62.00 with shipping from them and it did not work so I went up a notch to Gorgeous Peel $89.99 with free shipping. There is supposed to be no down time and you can wear makeup after the peel.They told me to put a peel... READ MORE

20% TCA, full face for acne scarring and poor texture. It all happened pretty quickly... initially it was a mild stinging feeling, but quickly turned into major burning...fan did wonders!! Had a 20% TCA full face, neck and decolletage peel on Tuesday (10/20). I just took this picture just... READ MORE

3 or so months later:    I have no brown spots, my skin cleared up a lot. Also, the texture has improved trumendously.  I'm going to wait till the end of the month and do it again, this time i think i'll do 3/5 solution and 2/3 water, that should make the solution close to 20%... READ MORE

I don't recommend this to anyone! It was a VERY painful experience. I was off work for 2 weeks and had a horrible time! The swelling was so severe my eyes were swollen all but shut for 6 days! I was afraid to go out in public.I did a 100% TCA peel at home 4 weeks ago. The usual swelling pain was... READ MORE

I have serious acne scars and I`m 30 years old. A few years ago for a long period(4 years) I had a severe cystic acne and facial ulcers that caused face full of ice picked scars, redness, huge pores & a constant need for make up. My dermatologist first stopped acne and then suggested a TCA... READ MORE

I found the results of a TCA peel to be effective if done correctly. However, mistakes are very costly and cause more hassle than its worth.I done some really stupid which is I picked the scabs of on day 3 and am now left with this light brown blotch on my face. Can someone offer some advice... READ MORE

I did a TCA skin peel to improve some dark spots on my face during the healing process i accidently scratch the tip side of my nose now i have a small dent what can i do it happen 1 week ago  READ MORE

At the time of this procedure I was 23 years old, now 25. I had this to help with the shallow atrophic acne scarring I have on the left side of my cheek as well as an allover smoothing of my skin. I paid $1,100.00 CAN I was given Valtrex for 2 days before, 7 days after. The procedure took... READ MORE

If used as directed, this stuff only produces a MILD stinging. As long as you leave it on less than 3 minutes it should feel like a bee sting and then go numb. I was removing deep scars on my arms so I needed to use 50% TCA and leave it on over 10 minutes. Though I left it on way above the... READ MORE

Dr. Wright consulted me on a tca peel, I had been considering it for a while but was a little nervous about the procedure, downtime, and overall results. He was very clear and thorough in the consult and answered all my questions. The procedure itself was great, Dr Wright and his staff made... READ MORE

The past year I have experienced the most painful acne. Deep papules on my chin that lingered and scarred. I'm also a licensed master esthetician with a successful rate of treating acne but I could not get a handle on my own. After research and speaking to my physician it was concluded that I...

I was experiencing some pigmentation issues from waxing and shaving in some areas in my private area and I wanted to get an overall even skin tone in that region for my upcoming wedding. I researched on the net endlessly for a solution to this problem and found Dr Micheal K Obeng of Miko Plastic... READ MORE

I hope the pimples and dark spots are gone, and I sure would not be bothered if some of the wrinkles were gone also. Pimples at my age who would have thought this would be an issue. My girlfriend does the peels all by herself and that may be great for her but it doesn't work for me. I am too... READ MORE

I have used Skin Obsession's 40% glycolic peel a couple of times and have had peels at the spa and am trying this TCA one soon (just ordered it). I work part time and am worried about when the worst day of peeling is so I can time the worst days for when I don't work. What would you folks... READ MORE

Just finished my first deep peel. Over the past 5 years or so I've played around occasionally with milder TCA peels, up to about 18%, but never consistently. Also, I've been doing regular mild MUAC Mandelic and Fade Peels. I wish I'd done all these more regularly to build up to this stronger... READ MORE

I was wanting to perk the ol' face up and have it fresh, clear of age spots, and the skin lovely for my daughter's upcoming wedding. I had not done a chemical peel before but heard gr8 results occur. This was all explained thoroughly by Sandi who represents the office spectacularly! She is... READ MORE

On day four 2/3 of face and neck and was peeling. On day six neck, under chin, nd forehead are the only areas still peeling. Lost a... READ MORE
