So about a week ago I did my first 12.5 TCA peel. I'm going to be doing 3 to get full results but I've noticed that now I'm having stubborn chin breakouts :confused: The rest of my face is fine and looking quite nice. My chin was always my problem and I was wondering if this was a "purging" thing that happens during peels that calms down after a bit because I really don't want more pimple scars.

Yes,this is normal.

I'm quite a fan of TCA peels,but they do cause some purging a few days after you get the procedure done.For some people at least!

Damn that sucks :( Will it do it every time I do a peel or just the first time?

Well,it depends.

How often do you get them done?

If you're doing them regularly then the purging will be come less and less as long as you take great of your skin in-between peels.

Yeah, I've been doing a lot of research on TCA peels, and one website said that if you have active acne waiting to come out from under your skin, the TCA peel will make you breakout. It's kind of good though because then everything comes out at once instead of one or two blemishes at a time.
