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
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 cooped up the
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.
