Hi AGAIN, I feel you may be tired of responding to me by now. I again had a tca peel a superficial peel, from my research it seems to be comparable to a 70% glycoloc acid peel. The concentration was 20%, but something quite strange happened during the peel: The dermatologist applied a 30% glycolic acid then applied 20% tca, he asked if I felt any burning and there was no burning, so he applied one more coat of tca 20% and then it began to sting and burn a little. I found that quite odd at first, but upon researching I found that sometimes with some individuals more than one coat is necessary.
He also indicated to me that the peels may not do much for the shallow indentations, only for some people but he does not want to give me any guarantees, he also stated that in about two weeks I can continue my microdermabrasion sessions, which I thought was too soon. Can you tell me how much of an improvement I can expect to see with a 20%tca peel if any at all- I also had a 20%tca about two months ago (I didn't see much improvement in scarring, only red marks) Thank You so much for ALL your help.
