  1. Please explain where this references freqeuncy as damaging?
  2. So treating aggressively is definitely detrimental to the collagen regeneration process? Can you point me in the direction of studies that have demonstrated this? Not debating the point, I would just be really interested in understanding how that works. its common sense you shouldnt keep bashing on your skin when its not even close to half of its healing otherwise theres no point in all these treatments u need to wait and let your skin renew itself before u harm it again You are missing my p

  4. just because the scabs from tca cross and the peel from tca peel fall off doesnt mean the healing process is done it takes month for collagen remodeling after a aggressive treatment I understand that-I think everyone who has done even a small amount of research into these things are aware of the collagen regeneration process. I am skeptical of that also, I know many of the studies can be considered biased-especially those centered around the cosmetic field. It is really important not to make a
  5. Sorry I know the lights are different here, I am struggling to get a good picture because of the time of day. It is hard to see in the photo, but they are MUCH shallower/wider. The first picture is from today. I hope someone else has had experience with this. I heal really really fast so am quite aggressive with the peels and cross. My last 30% peel was with two layers and LOTS of frosting-it was all peeled off completely within three days. I know at my derm they will do a medium tc
  6. Around a month, and about three days since the 30% peeled off. Will post new pics to my original thread. Just wondering if anyone else experienced the same thing.
  7. I am having a lot of improvement with the tca cross method. Scars are most definitely shallower, I would say around about 50%, but all of those scars seem to be wider. I have areas on my skin where it has become shallow enough, with no edges, to just look like a shadow on my skin. Other scars that were small and very deep (typical icepicks) are now looking concave, with slightly raised edges. I am a bit unsure of how to go about repairing this. I have tried 30% tca over the entire ar
  8. I find I have to do several washes with cetaphil, and it won't remove makeup at all. Other products do a better job. I want to be able to cleanse as effectively as posssible after facial steaming. More 'effective' cleaner than 'deep', if that will enable you to answer the question.
  9. Thanks Morgo. And yep, I have yet to purchase a vit c serum that isn't colored with a yellow tinge to mask the breakdown. I make it at 20%, keep it in a dark bottle and in a cool place. It stays semi clear for little more than two weeks- exactly why I make my own. Thanks again for the info Morgo, can you post your youtube channel ?
  10. I have been using Cetaphil face wash and am really happy with it. I usually do a light lactic & glycolic peel once a week, that seems to give me a deep clean. I would like to give the light peels a rest. What should I use for a deep wash to use every couple of days? With the deep cleaning washes does it matter if it comedogenic or not? Thanks
  11. My skin type heals incredibly well. I did TCA cross about 10 days after a 30% tca peel- no problems. All of my scabbing fell off within a week after. The deeper ice pick scars are rather red, but much much shallower. Without makeup the redness makes them more obvious, but with make up on the amount they have shallowed has increased dramatically, I would say at leastt 50%. Other scars became wider and shallower, but I have no doubt this will even out over time if I keep up with decent e
  12. estee lauder double wear is my number 1 go to product for coverage. I seriously can make a red inflamed face look flawless with this stuff. There are quite a few products out there, but I even find the double wear more effective than concealers. For applying I would use fingers to press product into the skin, and build as many layers as needed. In my experience pressing gives better coverage than beauty blenders or brush.
  13. I just went to ebay looked at the mid price range and looked at reviews.
  14. I have been making my own for quite awhile. I make a really plain version and just use ascorbic acid and distilled water. I like to do this so I can make a weeks worth at a time and don't have to worry so much about breakdown. In the past when I would purchase the serum it would always be more of a serum than a liquidy mix. Is it more effective to use mixed with an oil? I wondered if adding emu oil to the mix might be helpful? Thanks!
