So I've been clear of acne but I'm still left with my scars and PIH. I've started doing glycolic peels again for about 4 weeks now and havn't really seen results, so yesterday I did my first TCA peel.
I got makeupartistschoice.com's 30% peel and diluted it to 10%. The peel stung a bit but nothing too uncomfortable, and I left it on for about 3 minutes. There wasn't any frosting but it's my first time and I didn't want to do a second layer or a stronger peel and risk causing more damage.
This morning I woke up and my skin looks completely normal, other than it feeling very slightly tight. I don't know if I can attribute this to the peel since it hasn't even been 24 hrs but I;m telling you my skin looks amazing! My PIH is lightened and my scars look more shallow. I'm guessing that this is the result of maybe a bit of post peel swelling and could go back in a day or 2 but this makes me excited regardless, and am hoping this is foreshadowing of good things to come
