The difference between a "regular" TCA and Obagi Blue Peel is that the latter is, well, blue.

Chemical peels are tricky to use with Asian skin. Many dermatologists won't let you go past 20% TCA, and often recommend just salicylic acid or glycolic acid.

You absolutely must consult a dermatologist before trying any chemical peel. Doing medium-strength chemical peels at home is already risky, but it's even riskier with Asian skin!

It's even likelier that you'll have to prep with tretinoin and/or hydroquinone, depending on what conditions you want to treat.

Bad idea to DIY. One misapplication is all it takes for permanently scarred skin.

The best-case scenario for him at home is that the TCA peel was diluted/counterfeit/improperly formulated so that it doesn't effect his skin. Worst-case...infection and scarring.

well i thought it was really easy

i did 2 layers no problem although your face feels itchy or iritated from the tca because its strong so maybe stand outside when waiting

wash my face

pat dry with towel

apply tca peel 25% to cottonball and evenly wipe it all over your face avoid eyes

wait 3-5 min then apply another layer wait 3-5min then wash it off with cold water for 20 seconds

then youre done

those were the steps i did lol
