Today is day six after my 25% TCA Peel. I have a red streak over my right eye brow from the peel and I got the same thing last year. Must be an area which is very sensitive to chemical burns. I went out of the house today with an SPF 50 sunscreen on my face and burn ointment over my right eyebrow. My face is a slight pink color and my skin looks very healthy.
As of today, I would say that 70% of my face has peeled so far: 1) both cheeks 2) chin The following areas are now beginning to appear ready to peel: 1) my temples 2) my nose 3) my forehead I continue to keep my face covered with sunscreen (SPF 30) and a burn ointment. I actually ventured out of the house last night after the sun had gone down with my wife. I am hoping that the rest of the dead skin will come off in the next 24 hours or so. I don't like being
Today is day four of my 25% TCA peel. I woke up to a very tight face - it feels as if I am wearing a very tight brown mask all over my face. As I mentioned in my previous post, my face has begun to peel around my nose and mouth areas. Hopefully, I will experience some major peeling within the next 24-48 hours.
O.K. it is now three days out from my TCA peel. My wife told me this morning that my face looks swollen and like I have a bad sunburn/tan all over my face. She said that the skin on my face is beginning to tighten and look crinkly/shriveled. I've lathered my face with 50% sunscreen and covered it with a burn ointment. Looking forward to a successful peel.......
It's been less than 24 hours since I applied the 25% TCA peel solution to my face. My entire face looks somewhat red/pink/brown and you can definitely see a difference between where the acid was applied to my face and where my jaw line meets my neck. My neck looks normal with no reddish/brown look. I coated my face in the same burn ointment that I applied last night. My face is a little bit itchy this morning because I couldn't shave this morning and my facial hair is growing in.
At 9:45 p.m last night, I washed my face with Ivory Soap and water and then applied alcohol to my face with a cotton square to remove any residual soap, dirt, and oil from my skin. I then put on a shower cap to keep my hair off of my forehead and put on a pair of swimming goggles to protect my eyes. Then, I poured a portion of the 25% TCA peel solution into a glass bowl and applied the first layer to my forehead, followed by my temples, nose, cheeks, and chin area. Everything fros
