  1. Hi, I'm wondering where you did the TCA cross treatment? I have done subcision twice, and still have boxcar scars. subcision only rises them, but the wall is still clear. Thanks in advance!

      2thoseWhoHaveTriedSubcision??

      I had a total of four subcision treatments and had no marks, holes, scarring, etc from the procedure itself.
    2. Collagen remodeling and format is a process that takes months to complete, so you should expect any 'overnight' results from any procedure that you may have done. Any redness and swelling should, for the most part, be gone in three to four weeks. I had a couple of subcutaneous lumps that took about two months to subside,so you can't rush the process. If you have hyperpigmentation issues, talk to your doctor about a 25% or 35% TCA peel. I did seven of these at home, but I had major problems

      Right % of TCA for my scars?

      I would suggest that you: 1) speak to a dermatologist about TCA CROSS. Don't try this at home because it could make your scarring much, much worse. 2) look into needling Both of these processes will help develop collagen to help fill in these small pits.

      My advice is to be patient with the progress. Collagen and elastin production takes weeks and typically months. I also recommend a healthy diet with lots of exercise. Why exercise? It forces the blood throughout your arteries,veins, and capillaries and allows the growth factors, hormones, vitamins, etc., to spread where they are needed. Supplements such as zinc and topical vitamin c are also important to the production of collagen and elastin. Consider needling if you are not already

      Great journal! I wish you great success with your recovery.
    6. Today is Day Seven of my 25% TCA Peel. My forehead, temples, and the bridge of my nose are the only areas that have not fully peeled yet. To help expedite the healing process, I am doing the following: 1) applying cool compresses of white vinegar water (one tablespoon of vinegar to one cup of water) to my face three times a day 2) applying tea bags twice a day to my entire face (the tannic acid is supposed to help with burns) 3) applying hydrocortisone at least three times a day.

    7. The only areas that have not peeled so far during this week's peel are: 1) my forehead. It's quite red and brown looking. 2) my temples 3) the bridge of my nose I have been soaking gauze in one cup of cold water and one tablespoon of white vinegar and placing the gauze all over my forehead and cheek areas for about twenty minutes at a time. Then, I am apply aloe vera all over my face and let it dry. Then, I apply hydrocortisone cream all over my face to help reduce the redness/pink c
    8. Today is Day Six of my 25% TCA Peel. The areas of my face that have peel so far include: 1) 95% of my left cheek 2) 80% or more of my right cheek 3) 90% of both jawlines and my chin 4) 70% of my chin and nose The areas that have not peeled yet are still very brown. The areas that have peeled are now pink or reddish in color. One mistake that I made during the initial application of this peel was to remove my goggles and to apply a light layer of acid under my eyes. The result was ma

      Day Five (06.23.16)

      Today is the fifth day of my 25% TCA at home peel. Right now, I think that I look my worst. I have a very tight shell of brownish/red skin covering the outer layer of my face and I have swelling around my eyes. Based upon the tightness of my face right now, I would imagine that I am going to continue to peel heavily for the next 48 hours. I have already had small sheets of skin come off, but I expect even larger sheets of dead skin to peel off like a snake over the next two days. I am ke

      Day IV (06.22.16)

      The skin on my chin near my nose/cheek area is beginning to come off in small sheets. I expect to have the most peeling tomorrow and on Friday.

      Day IV (06.22.16)

      Today is day four of my 25% TCA peel journey. My face is very brown, tight, and feels as if I have saran wrap or cellophane tape wrapped around my wife. My left and right eyes are swollen and look kind of droopy. It appears that I have aged 20 years or so and my face is beginning to crinkle more and more. Peeling has begun near both side of my nose and at the corners of my mouth and on my chin. Photos are below. I'm growing a bit stir crazy since I have been cooped up in our hom

      Day III - 25% TCA Peel (06.21.16) Photos

      It's nearly 8:00 p.m. on day three of my 25% TCA peel. I just took a warm shower to help with the peeling process and my face is beginning to 'crinkle' around my nose which is a sign that major peeling should start in the next 12-48 hours. My face looks very brown right now and I am ready to shed this old skin. I don't like being cooped up on the house especially when it's summertime and I am on vacation. Hopefully, I will have shed this 'dead skin mask' by Friday and I can get out and ab
    14. My face is becoming progressively tighter and tighter as the day goes on which is a very good sign. As you can see below, my face has turned reddish/brown and it feels as if I am wearing a tight mask or have cellophane tape all over my face. Tomorrow should be the beginning of a two or three days of intense peeling.
