Looks great. Everyone has a different reaction, but yours looks very normal. I have noticed for myself and other TCA reviews is that the damaged skin areas with the TCA applied always darkens. You will have to be aware of that when you do your full face. My scars areas always turn a very dark brown, almost as dark as scabs, and then they peel off beautifully revealing great looking skin. Admittedly, part of the dramatic improvement in looks is that the scarred skin turns really dark --- much darker than the original scar/hyperpigmentaion. So when it peels off, the skin beneath looks even more impressive in comparison to that dark scab looking skin lol Anyway, looks like 15% is a perfect strength for you. Good luck and be safe :)

hmm. she frosted quite nicely..I have a question, kimmer you might be able to answer...I did a tca 15% peel 2 days ago it didn't frost at all but did burn, I'd say it was a fail attempt Anyways I have been using retin a .1%.. (discontinued it for 4 days prior to my tca peel) for almost 4 months now and was wondering when should I go back to using my retin a? and when should I retry the peel?
