I just did my TCA PEEL. When I can start using my Retin-A / cleaner with Retin-A in it. Should I wait until I’m done peeling?Thank you Paula
I am currently using a trentinoin cream (0.25%). I use it every other day for dark spots andoccasional acne (I think from wearing the N95 mask daily. I recently ordered a tca peel for my skin and lips (I ordered your recommended strength. My question is: Can I continue to use that prescription strength while I wait for my order?Also: Thank you all for the supportan and amazing videos with lots of knowledge.
Hi! I would like to use chemical peels for anti aging, reducing fine lines and wrinkles, and minor pigmentation issues. I like using the Mandelic 40% once per week because it doesn’t make me peel as much as the tca 13%. Would I get similar results using the Mandelic peel every week for 6-8 weeks rather than using the tca monthly?
So Ive been doing the 13% tca for about a year now mainly in the winter time about every 5 to 6 weeks. Since I started doing the peels, when i do break out or get a pimple. It tends to stay longer and leaves a permanent red or discolored mark on my face. This has never happened to me before. Just after i started doing the peels how do i stop that from happening or why is that happening?

Hello! I have now done over a dozen TCA peels at 13%. I have seen such great improvements in my skin. As my skin has gotten better, I have noticed I have developed some slight discoloration on my chin on the spots where I begin to peel first. I already use alpha-arbutin in my daily regimen morning & night. What should I do to address this mild hyperpigmentation on my chin below my mouth? My current solution is to only do a single pass over the area with the TCA so that it doesn’t peel as deeply when I do a peel and trigger PIH. Should I be avoiding applying TCA in that area? I do glycolic or mandelic peels and use retinol between TCA peels and wear sunscreen.

Those are value-added for sure and Jennifer, you are so good at them.

Do you have a book or a catalog that explains how and when to use your products? If not would you consider making one available for reference? I have purchased many of your products, most of them I have no idea how or when to use them after a peel.Although your video helps I don’t always have access to a computer. Please help, thank you.
I am about to start on my peel journey. I have been using Tretinoin .025% for almost a year (3-4x a week). I use The Ordinary’s Lactic acid 10%, and AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution. I also use L-Ascorbic Acid powder. And I have spot treated with a Hydraquinone product for my melasma. I have not had issues with any of these products. None of this has significantly reduced my spots however. Do you think I still need further prep before starting a peel? I am considering starting with Mandelic. But let me know if you think Jessners or TCA might be best. Thanks so much!
I have been using the fade bright serum twice a day for 2 weeks now and have not noticed any changes or lightening of my pigmented areas. I am prepping for the 13% TCA peel. Is this normal to not see any lightning at 2 weeks?

Hello dear…ve bin interested in your products for a very long time because of the results. I was impressed after seeing the reviews. My question is, are you still not selling your products to africa and why not if you havent started.
Hi, I’m trying to get rid of my melasma, which is extremely trigger-happy. I believe I first got it, twenty years ago, after using glycolic acid peels (improperly). I’ve heard that melasma can be a function of capillary dysfunction, and wondered whether copper peptides may (hence) help. I’ve used tca 13% and 18% at home (from MUAC). Also lactic (50%, from perfectimage) and mandelic acid (50% MUAC), in the last ten years. (I’ve been on retin-a since my early twenties, took a ten year break between 45 and 55, am back on, now 57). My skin is in excellent condition, practically wrinkle-free but that darn melasma. I would like to try your products, do you ship to the Netherlands? And where do I find your products (for purchase)? Thanks, and best regards, Semira Dallali
