Has any one had a TCA Peel? Did it get rid of all wrinkles? Was it expensive?
Gymrat - Wow! That sounds great. Did you do the peels yourself or go to a professional?The TCA, microderms, by far were amazing to me. Result wise. I had hyperpigmentation, surface toning, shrinking of pores, etc from doing that. With the peels, I just had to plan for the occation if you will. Meaning, I couldn't go out after I started to peel. In the beginning, a day or so after I was ok, it was more day 4-7 that it really kicked in. They gave me a product called SilkSes for hydrating when my face got too tight. If that makes sense. At times I would feel like I couldn't open my mouth or else........it would hurt the cracks on the side of my mouth. I never had bleeding, oozing, etc at all. Just fresh beautiful skin underneath.
Sorry this took me so long to read-Gymrat - Wow! That sounds great. Did you do the peels yourself or go to a professional?
I found this site that sells TCA peels in different strengths. Does anyone know if these peels could be used just on localized areas - such as a deep wrinkle or crease to eliminate or minimize it?
TCA Peel - Advance Skin Peel
NY - the same thing happened to me. Since I have been using vitamin C serum every AM and Retin-A every PM, there has been no need for additional exfoliation and so I have not used my glycolic acid product in a long time.I found i had to stop using the gyloclic and AHA from the amount of exfoliation i got from the Green Cream, but may be i just get the extra exfoliation due to my skin being very dry!
Well for me personally I like using TCA peels. There are so many threads on this site you can read through to find out the pros and cons to using them. Under the search menu just type in peels or tca. You can also go to this site and learn loads of info on all the different peels available to use at home.What are the best, safest, and most effective chemical peels you can do at home? I have melasma and age spots that I would love to help get rid of. If I can do them from home, I would prefer that! (way cheaper and more convenient!) What are your favorites? brands, etc. I am thinking of starting with glycolic acid peel 35% and then moving up. Aso what is the different between gylcolic peels versus lactic acid peels or salacylic peels? Favorites? I have tried melasma without luck and also want to work on tone and texture of my skin since I'm started to wrinkle. I also heard photofacials are amazing. All advice is welcome!!
