  1. Alternative to Jessners when doing a TCA peel?

    I am unable to get my hands on a Jessners peel in either reasonable time or at a reasonable price. However, I know that applying the Jessners peel before a TCA peel makes the TCA peel go deeper and...
  2. How long after peeling from a TCA peel can I start using Accutane?

    I know for the next three months after doing a TCA peel, collagen production increases, further improving skin quality and I do not want to interrupt with this. Does anyone know if it is safe to...
  3. Has anyone tried Jessner's, TCA, and glycolic acid all at the same time

    I've tried the Jessner's peel and TCA 20% combination. I was thinking of trying glycolic acid 40% and then TCA 20%, but I read one article that said it is quite effective to apply the Jessner's peel,...
  4. Jessner's + two or three layers of 20% TCA = roughly what percent TCA?

    I am thinking of doing a Jessner's peel plus two or three passes of 20% TCA under my eyes only until I get good frosting. I am trying to get rid of some static fine lines under my eyes as well as...
  5. When I go outside in the summer, I sweat A LOT and the sunscreen melts off within five minutes

    I have never met anyone that sweats as much as me. I have tried several different sunscreens, even the ones that claim to be sweat and water proof, and none of them stay on my face in the summer for...
  6. How do you avoid a TCA peel going to deep since it CANNOT be neutralized?

    For awhile now, I have known that TCA self-neutralizes in around 5-8 minutes. However, until recently I thought that it was possible to neutralize the TCA before that time by using baking powder...
  7. Can I get away with no downtime if I spot peel with TCA?

    Up till this point, I have only done full face combo Jessner/20% TCA peels. Since huge portions turned brownish and then peeled off in sheets, there was absolutely no way I could go to work for...
  8. Sunscreen, no matter how sweat proof, makes my skin sweat ten times more. Any recs?

    I realize as much as anyone the importance of sunscreen, particularly in the summer. Without any suncreen or makeup on my face, I tend to sweat a great deal more than other people (I believe this is...

    Thanks for your comments.

    His eyelids don't appear to be dropping, in the "older picture" and yet they look smaller. My point was they are probably the same size, but all of the area around...
  10. People with no wrinkles generally look their age, but why?

    I often look at photos of celebrities from movies and compare their faces to when they were younger and I can't really see wrinkles when comparing a person who is 23 and one is fifteen years older...

    Show me the proof that facial exercising works with pictures, not just theory. There is no doubt in my mind that it doesn't work. In fact, it might even make matters worse. If you disagree with me...
  13. Aproximately what is the additional strength of a TCA if applying Jessners before?

    I am planning on doing a combo Jessner's 20%/ TCA peel on Wednesday evening. Would you say that that would be equivalent to a 25%, 30% or even 35% TCA peel done alone?

    If you could answer...

    I wouldn't be surprised if the redder areas peel again for a second and maybe even third time. This has been my experience when I do strong peels like this. The second peeling doesn't necessarily...

    I don't think any skin care regimen is going to fix the extra skin and wrinkles under your eyes. If it really bothers you and you have the money, you might want to consider an under eye...

    Botox in my experience just creates new wrinkles in other parts of the eye.

    Looks normal to me. My face has been far worse after the peel and everything worked out. Just avoid forcing the peeling the skin off, even though that is easier said than done.

    From the research I have done, it seems Japanese people prefer to have alcohol in their sunscreens because it absorbs better in to the skin and gives a more matte finish. It also controls oil to...
  24. Why do not many people on this board use Japanese sunscreens?

    Almost all of the Japanese sunscreens I have tried have a nice light milky texture that absorb almost immediately in the skin, give a matte finish, and do not look greasy or heavy on the skin like...
