Have I Ruined My Skin? Tca Cross Disaster! *with Pics

29 posts in this topic

Hi, am I the only one who can see an actual improvement? Yes obviously the redness going down has helped but I seriously think yr doing ok. Be patient. It's not an overnight cure. I had several professionally and was gutted but years later I now take for granted how much better my skin looks now than it did before. Sometimes were too close to the problem to see the significant changes. We all wang out skin to be perfect as promised by the people selling us this stuff..... But that takes months of peels and perseverance. U look great and it will continue to look better. Persevere and all will be good. I thought I'd destroyed my face with my first home peel of tca.....I ended up with a huge black scab on the side of my face!!! O dear yrs lol.... But I persevered and it went and my skin looked great. But that was a severe mistake and it did take months. But yr skin is rehealing and yr not a kid anymore..... It takes a lil longer. Hang in there x

From what I see in the pics, it's exactly how it's supposed to look like. I haven't been in here for a long time but I was a regular for a while. I did the cross myself 3 times (with 100% TCA) in 2006-2007 and I'd say there's at least a 50% improvement! I also did a few 12-15% TCA peels. I have to say that the improvement continued since, in the years following so I'm considering doing another 2-3 rounds of cross. It's a painfully SLOW process so understand the hysteria esp when it looks somewhat worse at first. I do believe that the younger you are, the better the results and probably somewhat faster too but it's still slow so be patient, people.

The only side effect that I have from it is that the spots where I did the cross have lost pigmentation but better that than holes in my face (and I am fair skinned btw).

I'm very glad I didn't do all kinds of laser treatments and other extreme stuff that was mentioned at the time.

Be patient.

Hi there. Just wondering what happened with your tca cross in the end. Did it have a good outcome. Would you reccomend it.

It's VERY important to treat just 2 or 3 test scars in the first TCA CROSS session to see what happens, especially if it is a self-treatment. This is basic information.

Nobody should try this procedure at home before reading a lot about it.
