Chemical peels remove old skin so that new layers can grow in their place. This controlled removal ranges in strength, from superficial peels that use mild acids to deep peels that penetrate several layers of skin. Depending the type of peel you get, you might have a reaction similar to a sunburn, which may involve scaling, swelling, and blisters. This may last anywhere from three to 14 days, after which time your skin should be smoother, brighter, and softer. LEARN MORE ›

TCA Peel is Better Than AHA

I have had both AHA and TCA peels done and the latter is much better. I got AHA done last summer and did not see very good results. My skin peeled off, but in patches and the result was not what i had hoped for. I wanted a quick fix for some scars and blemishes so i opted for a AHA... READ MORE

MicroPeel for my Sun Damage

I recently finished my series (3) of biomedic micropeels. It's a glycolic acid peel (I believe it was 20 percent concentration). The entire process took 3 months, and I'm happy so far with the results. The reason I had the peel was to remove heavy damaged skin on my cheeks, forehead, and my... READ MORE

Chemical Peel Got Rid of my Acne Scars.

I got a TCA medium peel done in 1992 at the Dermatologists's office, Atlanta. Payed a whopping $500 and am happy with the results. The pain was bearable and it did sting and burn. The doctor kept fanning me to provide relief. I did not know enough back then to be too scared. I trusted my... READ MORE

Hated It - Does Not Help with Fine Lines

I had a TCA peel about 2 years ago. While I will agree that it did even out my skin tone, I was not remotely prepared for what it would do to my face. I was swollen, my face turned to puss (not infected, just chemically burned skin that turned to mush on my face) that hurt terribly. I... READ MORE

Jury Still Out

I have 2 experiences: my treatments consisted of 6 week spread apart appointments of 1. Lactic Acid chem. peel - in which the discomfort was super mild, almost more of an itch factor, and my skin looked like it was glowing.

Worth the Feel

My dermatologist used B-liftx 2/0 on my skin which is put on with a sponge in liquid form and quickly dries to thin white mask. They gave my a small electric fan to cool my face, which did get quite hot in the first 2 minutes. After that it gradually got back to normal (because the acid... READ MORE

But I've just done the new beta peel b-liftx and I have two very important tips: 1) If you have the cold... READ MORE

Good TCA - New Castle, PA

I got a TCA peel a few weeks ago and its pretty good. My skin was quite sun damaged with pigmentation of some sort, all over my cheek bones and nose. I guess at 50, these changes are bound to happen.
