Just had a 20% TCA peel done on Friday afternoon in a PS office by a licensed RN. I am 4 days post and my chin has already peeled off and so has my nose. My cheeks and forehead still remain. This is the SECOND peel I've had in two years, with the previous one costing me $125.
PROS--skin is brighter, smoother and clearer after all skin has peeled off. Some of the pigmentation caused by my taking birth control is lessened. You can no longer see any blackheads/whiteheads or blemishes on my face.
CONS--cost is somewhat expensive compared to doing it myself at home. Takes about a week to peel and I'm not able to wear makeup or get out in the sun (meaning I'm coming to work with NO makeup at all). The actual application burns and causes eyes to water. It is unpleasant but not "painful".
