I asked my doctor (dermo) what to do about the freckling which was sun damage on my face. I also had a decent amount of fine lines. I am very healthy, exercise heavily, keep my self in shape, etc. She did a deep peel with a combination of Jessners/TCA which is usually only mild to medium but she increased the concentration. I don't recommend having this done by anyone other than a reputable doctor. I had to take 4 different antibiotics and be very rigorous with with vinegar soaks and aquaphor. I am nearing the end of my second week and am very happy with the results. However, your collagen keeps rebuilding so I know from others that have had this that your face continues to improve.

Just showing month by month so people see that when you do this medium/deep TCA/Jessners Peel your skin keep rejuvenating it doesn't kill cells like some procedures...I highly recommend:)
