For atrophic acne scarring. The plastic surgeon convinced me that it would be sufficient for my level of scarring. The actual procedure was bearable, recovery was not fun- it was a deep chemical burn all over my face. That's fine- no pain, no gain right? Unfortunately it did nothing at all... READ MORE

I have recently bought the 12.5% TCA peel off the Makeup Artists Choice website for the first time. I wanted to lighten the skin on my face up, so i thought that by using the TCA peel it would peel off the dead and damaged skin off and reveal the new skin underneath. The cons so far have been...
