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 tethered scars, this type of peel will not diminish the appearance of your scarring.
If you have tethered scars and have gone through subcision, this type of peel may help generate the production of collagen in your skin.
Here are some things that I have noticed after having done four of these 25% TCA peels:
1) it helps to even out the tone of your skin.
2) it helps to tighten your skin
3) it helps to remove fine lines.
If I can get my camera to work properly, I will document how my face changes over the course of the next several days as the peeling process begins. I have an appointment with my dermatologist at 3:00 p.m. this Friday, so I am hoping that my face looks somewhat normal by then.
