Tca Cross, Improvement-Concerns.

15 March 2014 - 03:48 AM

I am having a lot of improvement with the tca cross method. Scars are most definitely shallower, I would say around about 50%, but all of those scars seem to be wider. 

 

I have areas on my skin where it has become shallow enough, with no edges, to just look like a shadow on my skin.

Other scars that were small and very deep (typical icepicks) are  now looking concave, with slightly raised edges.

 

I am a bit unsure of how to go about repairing this.  I have tried 30% tca over the entire area (scars are cluster on apples of cheeks), and it does seem to make it more even, but it would take a good deal more of these to make it entirely even. I am actually a little concerned that the tca makes contact inside the shallow scar and in the area around so it is not really smoothing out at all- ultimately skin is peeling from  outside and inside the scar.

 

Any advice on how to tackle this?

Should I continue with tca peels, and try to avoid the area inside the scars?

 


Using Cetaphil- How To Deep Clean?

11 March 2014 - 06:20 PM

I  have been using Cetaphil face wash and am really happy with it. I usually do a light lactic & glycolic peel once a week, that seems to give me a deep clean.

 

I would like to give the light peels a rest. What should I use for a deep wash to use every couple of days? With the deep cleaning washes does it matter if it comedogenic or not?

 

Thanks


Bha/aha Peel, Crystals In Solution?

26 February 2014 - 11:22 PM

I just purchased a bah/aha combination light peel. I usually get this mixture but this time I got the product locally.

 

I have noticed that in the new product there are what looks like crystals in the solution. I tried it on my upper thigh and it worked well, and just as it had before, but it is slightly gritty with the crystals.

 

What is with these crystals?


Does Anyone Make Their Own Vit C Serum?

24 February 2014 - 08:38 PM

I have been making my own for quite awhile.

I make a really plain version and just use ascorbic acid and distilled water.

 

I like to do this so I can make a weeks worth at a time and don't have to worry so much about breakdown.

 

In the past when I would purchase the serum it would always be more of a serum than a liquidy mix. Is it more effective to use mixed with an oil?

 

I wondered if adding emu oil to the mix might be helpful?

 

Thanks!
