  1. Thanks blueMA... you've been a great source of info for me !
  2. Thanks again blueMA ! Do you know of any good software that will translate Korean to English useing Internet Explorer ?
  3. Also I would like to add that it's illegal to ship 100% TCA without special hasmat precautions, so that's another reason to be at least a little skeptical of the ebay supplier.
  4. Anna Are you saying that the TCA you recieved was buffered. I don't know what is used to buffer TCA with either but I can find out if we need to know. I believe when they speak of 100% TCA in liquid form it's just a matter of convenience as opposed to calling it 99.8 or 99.9%.
  5. Thanks imbue but I'm not really interested in doing anything different then what was done by the korean doctors. If you look at the pictures in the study you can see that they treated scars much larger than the tip of a toothpick. Plus Dr. Rapaport didn't see a need to use anything other than a toothpick so it wouldn't be logical to think that I needed to.
  6. I would still like to learn exactly what is meant by this phrase {pressing hard on the entire depressed area of atrophic acne scars} It's mentioned five times in the study so it must be important imo. How is it possible to press the entire area of the scar with the type of toothpicks shown in the article...also I would like to know the purpose of pressing hard... it must have an effect that not pressing hard wound not have. So I wonder what this effect is. I did email the author of the
  7. Ok Tamara, that's fine. You do a great job here.
  8. Oursfan Why would you remove my post warning of what would likely happen if one was to try a full face 50% or 100% TCA peel and leave up a post giving directions on how to do the full face 100% TCA "peel"? What am I missing? But is good to see that some people here are starting to warn others of the dangers of TCA.

  10. Ahhh so I guess there was a third possibility...Sorry if I alarmed anyone but I do worry that some people here won't take this stuff serious enough and end up getting hurt. Thanks for clearing that up poreman.
  11. I would advise strongly not to put 100% TCA or even 50% TCA on to your entire face..that's just asking for big trouble ! Plus I'd be skeptical of anyone that's giving out information on how to do it.
