Deep Or Shallow Scars?! Photos Included

29 June 2015 - 08:23 AM

How can you tell if your scars are deep or shallow? What's the criteria? I have several scars near my mouth (both sides) due to cystic acne. I scarred in the area where my smile line is so those have blended together and it looks like a wrinkle. I have others that you can't see unless my skin is stretched and they LOOK shallow. What makes a scar deep or shallow? Silly question but I am going to be trying a TCA peel and I hear it helps with shallow scars. What do you think? I have a few more than what is shown (all aren't showing up on camera) but they are mostly that size or smaller. When my skin isn't stretched, I have that stupid line scar. Do you think 12.5 % TCA could maybe help minimize the appearance? I may go up to 18% eventually but that stuff scares the heck out of me. I'd hate to end up with worse scarring!

Muac Pumpkin Peel

Has anyone tried this peel? Is it strong? Does it work to brighten up the skin and get rid of red marks? I bought a sample but there were no instructions with it. Just want to make sure i"m using it correctly before trying it out.


Pmd Tore Up My Skin-Now What? Please Help Photo Attached

24 June 2015 - 03:02 PM

I used the PMD microdermabrasion machine on my skin the other day and it tore it up. It lifted up too much skin (I may have accidentally lingered in that spot for too long?!) so now it's red and scarred (indented). The red area is where the skin was lifted. The skin in that area is also damaged. It looks crepey...the way burnt skin looks. I ordered glycolic acid (30%) and TCA peel (12.5%) from MUAC and I'm wondering if it will help with the redness and softening up the scarred area. I plan on using the glycolic acid once for 2 weeks to get my skin ready for the TCA (I have had several sensi peels in the past). Since I just damaged it (a few days ago) I am going to wait about a week to make sure it's healed before applying the acid. Will it help? I know they don't help get rid of indented scars but I'd like that area smooth instead of looking  red and wrinkly.
Photo doesn't really show how bad it really is. You can't see how crepey it looks.

I should add that I had a line scar in that area-up where it looks like a wrinkle. it's actually a scar (2 scars that created the line) and then down lower where it's red is where the other line scar was but now it's just a hole in both areas and deeper. :(((

Chemical Peels: Layering

Does layering mean the % of the peel is higher? So, If I used a 12.5% TCA peel and applied 2 layers, would that mean it's now at 25%?

Just Had A Baby...my Skin Has Never Looked Better.

18 March 2015 - 08:58 AM

I did not get a single cyst throughout my pregnancy. I just had a baby 3 weeks ago and my skin is still clear. Not a single cyst in sight. I normally get them every month. I am hoping this will last. Just wondering if anybody here has experienced this and did the cysts/acne eventually come back?
