At Home TCA Peel for Hyperpigmentations/melasma - Australia

I'll update this as the days go one- I've just done my first 12.5% TCA peel. I've been getting microderms for months and use AHA / retin A products so my skin was well-prepped. Pros- - Cost: it's cheap I got my kit from MUAC. It will probably last a year's worth of peels. - Directions for use: I was wary both because of the cheap cost and DIY aspect, but I was glad...

Depigmentation Results After 2 Months - Sydney, Australia

I'm pregnant and being that I have had no treatment options for depigmentation other than microdermabrasion and light peels I thought I would share my findings.

Hi Qwesza, I had gotten a 30% MUAC TCA peel and diluted it. I only mentioned that the 12.5% didn't do anything and then the 18% was super strong to underline how important it is to slowly increase the strength. Since the 12.5% did... READ COMMENT

I've had bikini, underarm, belly line, upper lip done/chin. When I started in Boston I think it was about 200 for 20 minutes. Since then (2007) the prices have gotten much cheaper. I now live in Sydney though so I don't know how... READ COMMENT

There are different opinions on whether this can be done if you are pregnant, but the majority say it's okay as far as I could find. I obviously didn't go anywhere near Vitamin A or retinoid products, but when researching the... READ COMMENT
