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.
The only part about doing a 25% TCA peel that I don't like is the five day down period where you are forced to stay indoors and can't be in the sun.
The good news, however, is that by this Friday, my skin will have peeled completely and the collagen regeneration process will have begun.
My skin look its best about 90 days out and I will be going back to work a week from today.
Now, it's 'hurry up and wait'. My skin will molt like a snake in a few days revealing new skin underneath.
