After severe acne breakouts and inflammation of the skin after taking lithium, I began a journey over 2,5 years.

I suffered from severe acne on my face, neck and back, and as a result I was left with a fair few craters in my skin.

First-time TCA 10% Skin Peel (DIY) - Brooklyn, NY

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.

Do It Myself 25% TCA Peel - Birmingham, England

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

TCA Treatment + Ablative Surgery - Brisbane, AU

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.

TCA Hands

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...

TCS Peel, Botox - Sarasota, FL

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.

60 Yrs. Old and Ruddy Complection with Wrinkles and Pimples - Alberta, Canada

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

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
