anyone ever done a 12.5% tca peel?

For a guy who was so adamant about doing an at-home 25% peel, you seem abnormally concerned with pain all of a sudden.

The more you apply, the more it will sting and the redder your face will be. So I recommend that you use a single light coat the first time. The stinging is a delayed reaction; you won't feel it for a minute or two. And DO NOT peel the skin off before it is ready to come off. If you do, you may scar yourself. If you don't think you have the patience to wait for it to come off, you should think twice about starting the procedure. I wish you well.

I applied 3 layers (a few hours in between each layer) of the TCA Complex yesterday. That's about equivalent to 15% TCA peel.

It stung very badly for 10 minutes for each layer. Face gets red/sunburnt looking. Today (day 2) I still look sunburnt and I expect to get really bad peeling around Thursday/Friday/Saturday.

Zinc is good for wound healing and Vit C boosts collagen.

Bethany - that is way too strong for a peel. Always start at a low strength. I am on day 3 of 3 swipes of the TCA complex (same link as dookie gve you) ... my face looks shrivelled and wrinkled... it is getting ready to peel. Any more than this, it would be gross.
