Day Seven

Today marks day seven of my fifth 25% TCA peel. I took a shower this morning and shaved off one week's worth of growth off of my face and I am pleased to report that my skin looks great and has a slightly pink hue to it along with a small scaly patch under my right eye. There are some small scaly patches along my hairline and near my eyebrows. All in all, this was another successful peel for me. I ventured out yesterday to visit my younger brother and father and put on sunscreen wi

Day Five 9:25 P.m.

I did take a final warm shower this afternoon before my doctor's appointment to help loosen any remaining dead skin attached to my face and it did the trick! 99.99% of the dead skin from the peel has now fallen off. I had a 3:00 p.m. appointment at the dermatologist's office today and the RN asked where I got my 'sunburn'. I told her that she really didn't want to know. My face is pink and reddish and it does appear that I have a sunburn. I put both sunscreen and sunblock on my

Day 5 11:45 A.m.

I kept waking up throughout the night last night as my face felt really tight especially my forehead. This morning, I took a look at my face and much of the swelling has now subsided. I still have a little around the lower portion of my eyes, but that appears to be it. I had huge swaths of brown skin all over my face when I first got up and took a look at my face in the mirror. I took a long, warm shower and made sure to get the warm water on my face. I could feel the skin be

Day Four 1:50 P.m.

O.K. The peeling has begun. I am beginning to resemble snake who is shedding its skin. The peeling began around my nose area and has now spread to my chin. My face is coming off in small sheets and I can feel it loosening in other areas as well. I can see where the skin is beginning to detach under my eyes and I expect that by tomorrow morning, I'l have a lot more skin peeling away. Ironically, I have a 3:00 p.m. appointment at the dermatologists office tomorrow for som

Day Four

9:15 a.m. Today is the fourth day since my 25% TCA Peel. I face has turned a very brown/reddish color and my face basically looks like leather. The skin on my face has progressively become tighter and tighter as time has passed this week. Furrows and wrinkles are forming all over my face making my face resemble a shriveled pumpkin. I appear to be aging very quickly due to the outer layers of my epidermis detaching themselves from the lower levels of skin. My face feels v

Day Three - 9:55 P.m.

I have kept my face covered in Aquaphor all day today in the hopes of expediting the healing process. My face looks very brown and shiny right now. I expect that the outer layers of skin will begin to detach themselves very slowly over the course of the next 24 hours and my skin should become progressively tighter and tighter. Hopefully, I'll see some major peeling in two days (if all goes well). This is the time in the recovery/healing process that I always second guess mysel

Day 3 Post 25% Tca Peel

11:00 a.m. Today, my face looks extremely tan/brown all over and my skin is beginning to tighten. I can see the faint beginning of skin peeling on my left cheek and my skin is beginning to look 'crinkly' and 'wrinkly'. Based upon my appearance today, I fully suspect that I will peel heavily this week. My skin is beginning to become 'itchy' which is a sign that the upper layers of skin are getting ready to separate from the lower layers.

Day Two - Post 25% Tca Peel

I woke up a couple of times during the night because my face hurt. This morning, I took a look in the mirror and my face looks like I have a very minor tan and it feels somewhat tight. Based upon my experience with this in the past, the skin on my face should become progressively tighter and tighter and begin to peel in about two to three days. For those of you reading this blog who have acne scars, while a 25% TCA peel does help a lot with collagen development, if you have tet

Day One

I purchased a new bottle of 25% TCA from www.skinobsession.com about a month ago and applied four coats to my face this evening at around 9:35 p.m. Before I applied the first coat, I washed my face with soap and water and then used a cotton ball soaked in alcohol to remove any soapy residue, dirt, or oil from my face. Then, I put on a shower cap to keep my hair from falling into my face and then put on a pair of rubber gloves to protect my hands and a pair of swimming goggles to prot
