and certain areas of my face went white. Is that frosting? It stings and is kind of unbearable but nothing awful. I can not imagine what a higher percent feels like.
LOL, I thought that was you-That was me and I was thinking of going right for the hard stuff, until I did the 12.5 and now I think I will take it slow.
How long before I can do my next peel? When can I go back to my normal routine?
Oh Emily keep reading about our pain, and you will join us one of these days-You are all very brave doing these TCA peels. Reading your posts and the pain you are going through just gives me the shivers!! I guess I am just a weenie,
Oh ya and the itch!!! I always forget about the itch. I think the burn is all I ever seem to remember.Okay the worst part of the 25% was the tightness and waiting to peel.My face felt like it was almost "bruised" or something for about an hour after I applied the solution, but that went away. The tightness was way worse than with the 12.5%. Then there was the itching. Oh, ack! But yes, it is very worth it!
I swear, with the 25% I had to leave it on for so much less time than the 12.5% layered 4 times, the burning and stinging wasn't so bad. But it was the "after" effects that drove me nutty! I was so glad when it peeled. I did re-peel in certain areas too. I also had that effect with the 12.5%.Oh ya and the itch!!! I always forget about the itch. I think the burn is all I ever seem to remember.
