so I did a 25% tca peel at first last night.....my skin burned and i left it on for two minutes. Nothing happened at all so I decided to do a 50% tca. Burned like crazy so i thought for sure Id get great results but again no frosting and a little red the next morning. Should I bump it up to 80% next time or leave it on longer? Not sure what I should do if Im not getting the greatest results but I guess its only the first day but was expecting alot more frosting and redness.
