I also do tca cross and obagi protocols as well as the peels (read my posts on obagi).
I've only ever done 1 peel and done another peel a week later,once
I wanna do 1 peel a week for a month to see what results i get,as my skin is tough so it can take just about anything.

Drew, what kind of improvement did you get from the peels, were any scars improved or just texture? Did you have any issues like enlarged pores or stuff like that?

yes ive seen great results with the jessner/tca combination. I used to jessner first to freshen up the skin and firm it then I used the TCA 15% (HONESTLY, HOW DO PEOPLE GO HIGHER?? THIS STUFF STINGS) to reduce scarring/wrinkles. I used to have a patch of orange peel near my jaw line and the jessner knocked that out. I also had a group of very tiny scars bunched together that looked like a boxscar on my cheek. The TCA heeled that up nicely and greatly reduced some shallow linear scars that I had. I'd say about 20% improvment with just those 2 peels, not to mention my skin tone looks extremely fresh.
I just worked up another peel yesterday afternoon. Im looking forward to my results. I'll see If I cant post up some pics when i peel completely..
note: I had a dermabrasion a year ago this December and that did wonders for my skin. Im hoping these chemical peels can knock out my scarring completely. I never thought id be where im at today a year ago, its exciting.
