  1. I just read this thread and couldn't believe my eyes. If this is how people treat scar sufferers on this board, perhaps I am in the wrong place. Yes, I think I am.
  2. I've read testimonials from people that cleared their acne by dropping all dairy and greasy foods from their diet. Dropping such foods doesn't help everyone, but it seems to help the majority.
  3. Glad you had great results! But phenol is too nasty for me. )
  4. Just make sure you wait at least a week before doing the TCA.
  5. I peel slower. Days 4 and 5 after I apply the TCA are the worst for me. Even day 6 can be bad. Arrrgh! But I have oily skin.
  6. If your scars/marks aren't very deep, the TCA Complex may help you over time.
  7. Loganwood is a bit expensive, in my opinion. You get .5 oz. for $49.00. You can make the stuff way cheaper by diluting the 50% solution. But I know some people would rather have someone else do it.
  8. What strength peel will you be using? The TCA Complex peel? It peels the same for me each time I use it. The 4th and 5th days after you apply it are usually the worst. So you might have to time it so that the peeling falls on the days you have off.
  9. Gotcha. I'm somewhat skinny so I didn't think of that. I was thinking pregnancy. )
  10. Oh, and make sure you use distilled water to dilute it.
  11. Yes, it will peel deeper. 10% or less gives you the option of stopping when you've had enough pain. ) With TCA, stronger is not necessarily better. I want to be in full control of the procedure. With 25%, you have very little control. And you won't need "heaps of layers" with 10%. Maybe 2 or 3. See this thread: http://acne.org/messageboard/viewtopic.php?t=20333
  12. Hopefully the TCA will stimulate collagen production and the pit will fill in on its own.
