  1. I would be concerned if my dermatologist was making recommendations for scar treatments, when they didn't know what sort of scarring I had... Perhaps you could get a second opinion from another dermatologist?
  2. Hi All, I thought I would share with you some information regarding TCA. Most people should know by now that TCA is an incredibly strong and dangerous acid. And for those who don't know... well, it's an incredibly strong and dangerous acid! There are many different types of TCA. for those who are looking for treatment to TCA, I urge you to either see a Dr. who will use a good quality TCA. When I speak of quality, I don't just speak about percentage strength of the acid, but also what quality s
  3. Hi Doddlin, I wish you well in your TCA CROSS treatment and your tattoo removal! After much research, reading and numerous phone calls, I think the only way to truly tell if TCA is pharmaceutical grade is to ask the actual manufacturer. The manufacturer should be able to provide a Certificate of Analysis that will document and certify the quality of chemical. There are different grades of chemicals, and it is important to understand the differences. I will post a new message thread with a li
  4. Hi Doddlin, Thank you for your quick reply! I am curious to find out how to verify if TCA is of medical/pharmaceutical grade. How were you able to find this out from your supplier? Thanks, snowflake.
  5. Hi All, I was wondering if there is anyone who sells TCA (Medical Grade)? In particular, 100% TCA, medical grade. Is there a way to verify if it they are truly selling Medical Grade? Thanks, snowflake.
  6. Hey there, Yeah I noticed too that when I consistently used oil-blotting papers that I didn't have any blackheads. Nothing in my regime has changed except that I don't use the papers anymore (because I ran out ) and my blackheads have returned!
  7. Sooo close to the end...almost close enough to cross the finishing line!!! Well done!
  8. Hey Jules, Hang in there buddy. I know what you mean about being tired. When I was on Accutane, I slept so much. If I wasnt sleeping in a lecture hall at uni, I was sleeping at my mate's place in college or on the bus or at home. My blood pressure increased and so did my cholesterol. The doctors monitored me to make sure I was ok. I did my best to eat as healthily as I could so as not to exacerbate the problem, and when I did, I felt a little better too. I used to have cystic acne on my back,
  9. Hi Everyone, I was thrilled to find this message board - The support you provide each other is wonderful! Maya, in particular, you have provided some wonderful information - I have been with many icepick scars for some time now, and my dermatologist told me there was nothing I could do about it - you have given me hope! May I ask, what is the best way to find a surgeon/dermatologist who will be able to perform excisions? Would I need a reference from a GP? thanks, snowflake
