One of my clients is doing it for me and boy am I nervous! I hear it hurts like fire! I want to get the most out of it and recover as quick as possible, so if you have any recommendations for after care, please let me know!

Thanks,
Renee

I have only done 15% TCA peels on myself - I found that it barely stung at all, probably because it wasn't a high percentage. I didn't have any redness and no downtime at all - my skin did peel after about 4 days but it wasn't a big drama.

For after care, it is recommended to use an antibiotic cream and an anti-itch cream, if your skin becomes itchy - mine didn't. I used the antibiotic cream immediately after the peel but then switched to emu oil. Your skin does become very "tight" afterwards and I found the emu oil more "nourishing" than the antibiotic cream. Also, emu oil is recommended for burns so I think its very suitable for post-peel skins. My instructions said not to wear makeup whilst skin is peeling, but I did. I just applied a little MMU to make me feel more human!

Most important thing is to wear sunscreen. I'm sure you'll be very happy with results. All the best.

Thanks so much for your reply! She did a 25% TCA on me and it definitely stung! She did around my eyes first, which was the worst part, and then the rest of my face. She left it on a little longer around the eyes, but not longer than a minute. She wanted me to see what it was like at first and then we'll go longer next time. I was pink around the eyes at first, but now I'm ok. I guess I'll start to see the results (peeling/brown) more towards Saturday.

I will definitely take pictures of my progress to share with those of you who are intersted!

Smile Renee
