I have serious acne scars and I`m 30 years old. A few years ago for a long period(4 years) I had a severe cystic acne and facial ulcers that caused face full of ice picked scars, redness, huge pores & a constant need for make up. My dermatologist first stopped acne and then suggested a TCA... READ MORE

I found the results of a TCA peel to be effective if done correctly. However, mistakes are very costly and cause more hassle than its worth.I done some really stupid which is I picked the scabs of on day 3 and am now left with this light brown blotch on my face. Can someone offer some advice... READ MORE

At the time of this procedure I was 23 years old, now 25. I had this to help with the shallow atrophic acne scarring I have on the left side of my cheek as well as an allover smoothing of my skin. I paid $1,100.00 CAN I was given Valtrex for 2 days before, 7 days after. The procedure took... READ MORE

If used as directed, this stuff only produces a MILD stinging. As long as you leave it on less than 3 minutes it should feel like a bee sting and then go numb. I was removing deep scars on my arms so I needed to use 50% TCA and leave it on over 10 minutes. Though I left it on way above the... READ MORE

Hi everyone. I saw this post and I became excited https://www.realself.com/review/my-house-my-own-tca-peels-and-loving I have scars on my face caused by acne but not deep though very visible. It's annoying me. I would like the scars to vanish. I read that tca peel can help. I'm an asian with... READ MORE

When you turned 40 you realized that you have to take care of your skin more then ever. I did lot of research to find right treatment for me. I had microneedling procedure for my entire face but I wasn't happy with my under eyes area. Then I went to Dr. Gallante's office and he did a MIRACLE for me! READ MORE

I decided to get a skin peel because I've heard so many great reviews about it. I wasn't really comfortable going to a licensed practitioner and spending too much money. But I also didn't want to do it myself and end up with terrible results. After scouring the internet I found a great website... READ MORE

I had a 25% TCA peel two days ago at a clinic in England. I found the procedure to be fairly benign, there was a lot of itching when the ointment was applied but the fan took care of that. I had the procedure done on Friday and it is now Sunday and I am a bit disappointed as I've only... READ MORE

I did a 50% tca peel under my left eye and am horrified that I have done permanent damage. I underestimated how strong 50% was and never should have put it around my eye. My eye feels really tight and dry and I can feel my lower skin tugging away from my eyeball every time I open my mouth. I... READ MORE

I can say with full conviction that acne scars hampers one's confidence given that today's society are so fixated at vanity, scrutinising at individuals physical attributes. Dr Davin has been more than a dermatologist to me. Through his experience and expertise in this field, he has provided... READ MORE

Hi have a lot of fine lines and "smoker's lines" around my mouth. My skin texture is rough. I went in for the TCA 20 peel. The redness lasted about 1-2 days. I put Cerave moisturizer cream on constantly for 3 days and also sunscreen. I am cleansing with Cetaphil gentle cleanser. On day... READ MORE

I applied a first layer of TCA 25% on my hands using a cotton ball. I felt no stinging or reaction. I applied another layer, this time a slight burn/sting, then rinsed with cold water thoroughly, after leaving on for approximately 5 minutes. Day 2 my hands appeared crepey, like an old woman. Day...

Dr. Wright consulted me on a tca peel, I had been considering it for a while but was a little nervous about the procedure, downtime, and overall results. He was very clear and thorough in the consult and answered all my questions. The procedure itself was great, Dr Wright and his staff made... READ MORE

The past year I have experienced the most painful acne. Deep papules on my chin that lingered and scarred. I'm also a licensed master esthetician with a successful rate of treating acne but I could not get a handle on my own. After research and speaking to my physician it was concluded that I...

I was experiencing some pigmentation issues from waxing and shaving in some areas in my private area and I wanted to get an overall even skin tone in that region for my upcoming wedding. I researched on the net endlessly for a solution to this problem and found Dr Micheal K Obeng of Miko Plastic... READ MORE

I hope the pimples and dark spots are gone, and I sure would not be bothered if some of the wrinkles were gone also. Pimples at my age who would have thought this would be an issue. My girlfriend does the peels all by herself and that may be great for her but it doesn't work for me. I am too... READ MORE

I have used Skin Obsession's 40% glycolic peel a couple of times and have had peels at the spa and am trying this TCA one soon (just ordered it). I work part time and am worried about when the worst day of peeling is so I can time the worst days for when I don't work. What would you folks... READ MORE

Just finished my first deep peel. Over the past 5 years or so I've played around occasionally with milder TCA peels, up to about 18%, but never consistently. Also, I've been doing regular mild MUAC Mandelic and Fade Peels. I wish I'd done all these more regularly to build up to this stronger... READ MORE
