peels making me look worse

Recommended Posts

I'm ashamed I don't know the answer to this question, but before I did a mild tca peel, my scars were in hiding and hardly even visible. Now, a week later, they're back and some even look worse. Is it possible they'll diminish soon and that peels actually cause them to come out? I'm freaking out here.

I think it is nearly impossible that the scars get worser after a TCA Peel except

you burnt your skin extremly with high concentration.You say it is only one week after you applied it,so i think that the little redness after the peel let the scars look more visible.Wait another week and you will see better results.Which TCA Peel did you use?

I diluted it myself down from 50% so I'm not sure the exact percentage. I'm sure it was around a 20-30% peel but it didn't even frost over or hurt really badly. The scars themselves don't look deeper...they just reappeared once i did it. I dunno.

Are you talking about indented or colored scars? Is your skin dry? I notice that my indented scars look a lot smoother if I keep my skin well hydrated. I use a BC night cream with Vitamin C and when I wake up in the morning, they're a lot smoother. I've used in the morning too since I had the Jessner peel and they look so much better. Try a good moisturizer and see if that helps.

TCA ain't the way to go cuz you ever heard of Dr. Kilkop who said TCA is damaging to dermal layers of skin and in long run will cause more dermal damage to the stratum corneum!
