I did a 30% peel about 10 days ago, 2 layers. It was done by my dermatologist because I figured that theres no way in hell im doing it by myself, didn't want to cause any permanent damage. So I do it, and my face doesn't even frost after 2 layers. Dermatologist decides to just let me go without me even frosting one single bit. I end up peeling like 6 days after (she told me i'd peel 2-4 days after), and I literally looked like a diseased patient with major skin issues. After the dead skin shedded, holy moly, my hyperpigmentation was barely even noticable anymore. Definitely would recommend this peel to anyone who wants to clear up their PIH. Works wonders. To really get rid of the PIH though, I'd recommend 2 peels. I'm going to get my next one in about 4 months :D
I've had horrible ance cystes and puss dime filled cystes in my early 20s. I tried every product out there, took my about 3 years to find one that was a miracle. Now I'm 28 and decided on the TCA peel for my worn out skin with some dance scarring on my forehead and skin and huge pores. My skin was like reptile skin. I am so grateful for the TCA peel! Baby soft skin. I broke out with mild small acne marks but I assume this is what was lingering under my replite skin. Would definely recommend it! Will go back to my old skin care routine in a week or so to avoid the huge cysts. I did 15% TCA and did several layers (even that just barely frosted). Will be doing this once a month for about 5 months.
helps with freckles and scars
makes skin baby soft burns
the peeling process yuk
time off work well i used this to help with my scarring and let me just say i do like it and plan on doing it again but AVOID USING NEOSPORIN!!!!!! after treatment it broke me out like crazy!! my skin had cleared up and everything was good until i put neosporin on my face.. i dont think it was the peel because i use other typer of chemical peels and i never breaks me out this second time i will be using aquaphor healing ointment as a post peel treatment. and i didnt actually start peeling til day 5 and completley peeled by day 9. i did see a reduction in my freckles and some scars but i dont think i will see a more refined result til my second peel. in which i will update
Amazing value, results in only a few weeks, minimal downtime and cost Very gross feeling when it is being applied, you look like you have plastic wrap on your face for a few days I was given a 7% auto-neutralizing peel at a local doctor's office (more than strong enough and I'm a guy with II-III level acne that was cleared with doxy). The results were very good compared to the three microderms I got at the same office - and each of those was also $100! Def worth a shot and so much cheaper than lasers! Results can still be seen a year later!
