Hello welcome back to my Skinsatin blog. Today, I’m going to talk you about an interesting experience that I wanted to do at home. In my last article about the peeling I told you a little about the home TCA peel. As I explained to you in my description I had acne problems as a teenager and I found a lot of very interesting products that allowed me to get rid of pimples and scars.
It was a long way but with a lot of perseverance and good products I didn’t get to bad. So let’s move on to serious things and talk about my home TCA peel!
Home TCA peel – Why do we make a TCA peel?
These chemical peels that have existed for decades give us a real shot of radiance and youth!
Forget the hair or the hands which give us shine it is above all OUR SKIN and especially the skin’s face. Girls to look young what is essential is that your skin is firm, smooth without irregularities. To eat healthy and to hydrate enough is not the only solution. When the skin needs a big maintenance the chemical peel can be welcome. For example your skin can have a lot of impurities, sun spot, age spots, hyperpigmentation.
You may need it if you smoke and your skin become thinner and get old before age. It could help women and men from 60 years to the face marked by the sun, of course it is necessary that your skin type support this kind of treatment.
You should know that after such treatment you won’t be very nice to see for a few days. This kind of peeling looks like a nasty sunburn. The skin become very red or very black for the dark skin, it peels slowly sometimes by large plate. Then when the skin recovers it will be fresher, more regular and better moisturize.
Home TCA peel – How did I discover this method ?
I have already done several TCA peels at a doctor and I thought: “Why not do it myself if I can?” I looked on the internet if I couldn’t get the product and I came across a website that proposed a kit. I read a lot of positive reviews and when I was able to buy it I did it. As soon as I received the kit, I immediately made a test as it is recommended. That is behind the ear with a slightly damp cotton swab with the 25% solution. After a few minutes I decided to do it on the whole face.
Home TCA peel – My experience
I first prepared my skin by applying a cream with 15% of glycol daily for 15 days to strengthen the action of the peel.
I started to clean my skin with a mild cleansing product. Then I put a tampon soaked in alcohol all over my face. I then applied the solution with the percentage of concentration that I chose and which suited my skin on the entire face avoiding the eye contour, because it is a very fragile area.
I applied the home TCA peel a second time, my skin strongly stung and became whiter but it is a sign that the product acts and penetrates. I let sit for 3 to 4 minutes, it depends of your skin sensitivity and then I rinse my face abundantly with cold water. In case of burning sensations really unpleasant you can apply cold compresses on your face. Finally, I applied a moisturizing cream.
After my home TCA peel :
Just after the home TCA peel it is normal the skin is a little red and swollen. Depending on the skin sensitivity the redness could be more important but it’ll diminish the next day. If you made the 25% peel like the one I made, my skin peeled during the following week and became brownish the next day. This process is normal, it is a medium peel, the skin has been burned so that it can regenerate afterwards.
It gave me the same impression after a sunburn but the new skin I got after this peel much more beautiful and radiance and the skin texture was refined.
The weeks following my home TCA peel:
Like all peeling I had to use a total screen cream for one month, it isn’t recommended doing it during the summer.
(For very dark skin ask medical advice because the following weeks you could suffer of depigmentation)
I used a mild cleanser for ten days. For the men it is recommend to not shave the same day as the peeling.
If the redness persists after several weeks consult a doctor. For a quick recovery its is necessary that the home TCA peel is not too strong.
The health of your skins determine factor to know if you are a good candidate. I advise you to seek the opinion of several doctors or dermatologists and especially to have done this treatment once or twice with a specialist before doing it alone at home. If I advise you to seek information from several doctors or specialist it is because some will disappoint you for fear that TCA peel burn your skin but others just don’t want this product to compete because it is effective and much cheaper.
In the kit I bought there is a bottle with 50% concentration solution I don’t recommend applying directly on your face. On the packet leaflet it is explained that this high concentration is used for outgrowth(pimple, warts and to remove the tattoos. There is a severe risk of depigmentation with this one.
As I didn’t need this 50% solution, I took half of the liquid that I mixed with 50% water so I got a new 25% solution. If you find that the 25% concentration solution is too strong, you do the same thing by taking half of the solution at 25% that you mixed with 50% water and you get a 12.5% solution.
This article can be a bit scary but I want to clarify that each skins react differently and that the use of this product is not trivial but well-used this product is incredibly beautiful for the skin.
Thank you for taking the time to read me, I hope my solutions could help you and don’t hesitate to leave a comment.
So have a good day or a good evening! Stay cool, sexy and see you soon!
