Hi, I am planning to do an at-home TCA peel with 20%. This is my first time doing it so I have some questions about it. I've tried looking them up but can't find definite answers. So I would like to hear from those who have experience with it.

1. What % AHA lotion/cream should I use to prep my skin? Which brand do you guys use?

2. I heard the effects of TCA peel only last six months. Is that true?

3. How does TCA cross work? If I dip a toothpick with TCA into a scarred pore, wouldn't that make the pore larger since acid can melts the skin away?

4. Am I allowed to wash my face with salicylic acid after I used the peel? What kind of lotion should I put on my face afterward? Do I need to reapply it often to keep my face moisturized?

This is a lot of questions, so thanks for taking time to read them. Answers will be greatly appreciated. I'll be sure to put up my before and after photos when I am done. But I won't do it until summer because I still have to go to school...

Thanks guys.
