Day Seven Post 25% TCA Peel (06.25.16)

Today is Day Seven of my 25% TCA Peel. My forehead, temples, and the bridge of my nose are the only areas that have not fully peeled yet. To help expedite the healing process, I am doing the following: 1) applying cool compresses of white vinegar water (one tablespoon of vinegar to one cup of water) to my face three times a day  2) applying tea bags twice a day to my entire face (the tannic acid is supposed to help with burns) 3)  applying hydrocortisone at least three times a day.  My

Day Six Post 25% TCA Peel (06.24.16) 9:12 p.m.

The only areas that have not peeled so far during this week's peel are: 1) my forehead.  It's quite red and brown looking. 2) my temples  3) the bridge of my nose I have been soaking gauze in one cup of cold water and one tablespoon of white vinegar and placing the gauze all over my forehead and cheek areas for about twenty minutes at a time. Then, I am apply aloe vera all over my face and let it dry.  Then,  I apply hydrocortisone cream all over my face to help reduce the redness/pink c

Day Six - 25% TCA Peel - (06.24.16)

Today is Day Six of my 25% TCA Peel. The areas of my face that have peel so far include: 1) 95% of my left cheek 2) 80% or more of my right cheek 3) 90% of both jawlines and my chin 4) 70% of my chin and nose The areas that have not peeled yet are still very brown.  The areas that have peeled are now pink or reddish in color. One mistake that I made during the initial application of this peel was to remove my goggles and to apply a light layer of acid under my eyes.  The result was ma

Day Five (06.23.16)

Today is the fifth day of my 25% TCA at home peel. Right now, I think that I look my worst.  I have a very tight shell of brownish/red skin covering the outer layer of my face and I have swelling around my eyes. Based upon the tightness of my face right now, I would imagine that I am going to continue to peel heavily for the next 48 hours.  I have already had small sheets of skin come off, but I expect even larger sheets of dead skin to peel off like a snake over the next two days. I am ke

Day IV (06.22.16)

Today is day four of my 25% TCA peel journey. My face is very brown, tight, and feels as if I have saran wrap or cellophane tape wrapped around my wife.  My left and right eyes are swollen and look kind of droopy.  It appears that I have aged 20 years or so and my face is beginning to crinkle more and more. Peeling has begun near both side of my nose and at the corners of my mouth and on my chin. Photos are below. I'm growing a bit stir crazy since I have been cooped up in our hom

Day III - 25% TCA Peel (06.21.16) Photos

My face is becoming progressively tighter and tighter as the day goes on which is a very good sign. As you can see below, my face has turned reddish/brown and it feels as if I am wearing a tight mask or have cellophane tape all over my face. Tomorrow should be the beginning of a two or three days of intense peeling.

Day Three (06/21/2016) 7:31 A.M.

When I woke up this morning, I was a bit surprised when I looked in the mirror.   Both of my eyes have swollen and my right eye looks a bit droopy today due to all of the swelling.  I wore goggles when I applied the acid, but later removed them to apply a thin coat of acid under eyes and on the sides.  I didn't dare try to do my eyelids - too risky. My face is pretty swollen, too, and it appears that I am wearing a brown mask on my face. I suspect that peeling will begin either late this e

Day Two (06.20.16) 5:35 P.M.

It's evening time and I can feel the skin on my face beginning to tighten. I've lathered my face in burn ointment to help with the healing process.  Our youngest son just told me that my face looks like an 'onion' and he can see visible signs of my face tightening because it's beginning to 'crinkle'. I'll take his comments as proof positive that the process is working. Looking forward to seeing what my face looks like tomorrow.

Day Two (06.20.16)

It's been less than 24 hours since I applied the Jessner's Solution to my neck and the 25% TCA acid to my face. This morning, you can definitely see where I applied the acid to my face there is a clearly defined 'line of demarcation' between the skin treated with the acid (kind of reddish/tan) and the untreated skin (white, normal looking skin. I hope that my neck peels, but I have never used a Jessner's Solution peel, so we shall see how that goes. I am glad that I have done many TCA peel

Day One - 25% TCA Peel

At 9:45 p.m. today, I decided to do two separate peels: 1) A Jessner's Peel on my neck I've never done a Jessner peel before, but I read in several places that it is safe to do this type of peel on your neck. I washed my neck thoroughly and then put alcohol on a cotton pad and removed any oil and soap from my neck. I purchased the peel from www.skinobsession.com and I applied three coats on my neck.  My skin became red, but it didn't frost. 2) A 25% TCA peel on my face   I bel
