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, and it's not even finished healing. The new skin being revealed so far is pink, and healthy looking. I'm looking forward to the full results. I will do this again in a few months.
I can see how those uneducated could be frightened by the healing process. I have read extensively on this peel, but there was still a part of me afraid that my face would not heal. Take excellent post peel care! I used aquaphor + neosporin for the first 4 days then switched to cracked skin relief cream by derma e. I did not go into the sun without a 30 spf mineral sunscreen, hat, and sunglasses.
Other considerations: I am not susceptible to cold sores, but using the peel around my mouth provoked a small breakout, which is clear in the pics.

I have also been using a 20% salicylic peel monthly to maintain. I attached a new pic from a week ago. It shows a really nice even skin tone. My skin is so bright! IMO, chemical peels are absolutely the key to maintaining youthful skin if you cannot afford a surgeon. I'm thinking if trying the 30% TCA/Jessners selling on amazon. Anyone tried?
