i have had 4 children and was left with sever stretch marks. open to try any treatment to minimize them... I read about TCA improving texture. I am still in the healing process so I will post my journey. If you have any special suggestions let me know. I am also taking collagen pills and frequently moisturizing as well as use of aloe vera.

Two weeks later...

OK so I didn't do my entire stomach b/c I was unsure of the results, but it definatly lifted the stretch marks to the surface. Skin is still peeling & red. Very pleased with results.

Impressive. I might try this in between microneedling my stretchmarks. If you'd like to follow my progress, I'm sharing large pictures of before and after at stretchmarksanonymous.com Thanks for sharing!

Does the skin quality also improve? For example my stretch marks collapse over when I bend etc. You mentioned the stretch marks have come to the surface but are they also tighter? Thanks a lot!

And your tummy...
If this works on the stretch marks you may have something there.  Does it sting?
  • Reply
It stings as much as TCA application anywhere, but the downtime is longer & peeling doesn't begin until day 7...I will keep everyone up to speed on my progress.

Sounds great.

Now it has been almost 12 days since the peel. It was more painful than a standard face peel. unsure why... but it also took longer to begin peeling. It did not start peeling until day 8 but I will say not much change in scarring but texture has a big difference. my very deep stretch marks are superficial now.

That's crazy!    I guess this one just takes a bit longer to get started.  But glad to hear the stretch marks are looking better.
