Purchasing TCA Buyer Beware

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone,

I totally forgot about this. I just remembered and wanted to post it.

A couple months ago my local los angeles news did a segment on online TCA peels. There was a woman who ordered a TCA peel online, and she thought it was a safe percentage, but she ended up getting burnt.

So with the help of a doctor, they ordered tca peels from ebay, and all the other websites you see online selling tca. Every single one tested with contaminants. The doctor said all the peels had industrial grade tca, not one was medical grade. Even more scary, the percentage advertised was way off!

None of the online retailers selling TCA or dermal Fillers are the real deal

STOP purchasing form online. Get a doctor to perform these procedures.

If you must do it yourself, go to a compound pharmacy and ask them to make the TCA peel for you. Call around, i'm sure you will find at least one pharmacy willing to compound it for you.
