Trichloracetic Acid is the primary ingredient in the Obagi Blue Peel.Noticeable peeling will be realized, with some down-time that will vary from client-to-client, dependent upon your skin type.

Our TCA Home Peels are excellent for softening deeper wrinkling, 
reducing/removing less severe facial lines, improving sun damage, fading hyperpigmentation (freckles, "age" spots), reducing scars (not keloid scarring, however), reducing acneic conditions with/without scarring, reducing and/or completely removing upper lip lines.  Improved skin coloration/brightness will be seen after peeling, with a fresh, more refined texture to the skin.

***TCA peels typically tighten the skin and provide a lifting effect.

***Begin with our 12.5% peel if you haven't used TCA's previously.  Once you have become accustomed to using TCA's at home...and should you feel you need to use a stronger percentage...graduate-up to the 15% or 18%.  

21% should *only* be used by clients who have tolerated the 18% very well.  21% is *very* strong and not for the beginning/novice TCA user.

A TCA peel of 12%, 15%, 18% or 21%, performed at a doctor's office,would cost at  *least* $500 for one treatment.

Purity and Formulation:

Makeup Artist's Choice TCA's are formulated in carefully controlled FDA registered facilities with Reagent Grade (ACS) ingredients, medical grade. Reagent grade is the highest purity level obtainable. The American Chemical Society (ACS) establishes the laboratory standards for all Regent grade chemicals. 

Please be cautious when purchasing online peels.

We use only FDA registered laboratory facilities to ensure the highest purity medical grade and professional formulations.  Beware of TCA "homegrown" concoctions being offered on eBay and sub-standard websites.  Some websites boast personal licensing in the skin care field and the qualifications of their "chemist."  

Others offer rock-bottom pricing.  There's a reason for this.....their products have *not* been formulated in registered, quality-controlled FDA Lab facilities.  Quality-control ensures the purity and safety of the product.  FDA Lab Registered facilities are monitored (unannounced visits by FDA reps), and must adhere to strict GMP (good manufacturing practices).  FDA Lab formulated products ensure you are getting products handled by certified chemists, working in quality-controlled laboratory facilities registered with the FDA.  Our lab is FDA and EPA registered, certified for GMP. FDA lab formulated products come with certifications that are kept on-file for proof of formulation. That's your guarantee the product advertised is indeed what you are receiving. 

Pre-Peel:

Using alpha hydroxy products for a week prior to your TCA peel....glycolic acid, mandelic acid, lactic acid.... will help to "prime" the skin for the TCA.  Do not, however, use an alpha hydroxy acid.....nor any other acid.....on the same day as your TCA peel. While priming the skin isn't an absolute prerequisite, it may help you to realize a more productive peeling experience.  If you are planning to use our stronger TCA peeling products at a later time, prime your skin with our Retinol or Alpha Hydroxy Peels (glycolic, lactic, mandelic).

If you are using this peel primarily for hyper pigmentation issues, use our 40% Lactic Acid Peel, along our Fade Serum for 2-3 weeks pre-peel.  Use the peel once weekly and the serum twice a day.  

Cautions:

  • Do not use this product if you are currently using Accutane, 
    or have used Accutane anytime within the last 24 months, as scarring may result. 
  • Darker skin tones should avoid TCA peels above 15%.  Darkening of the skin could occur.  Alternative peels are available.  Please ask us for guidance, and we will help you choose the best peel.
  • Do not use a TCA peel if you have herpes simplex. 
  • Do not use if you are pregnant. 
  • Do not use if you are lactating. 
  • Do not use if you tend to keloid. 
  • Do not use if you are undergoing chemotherapy or radiation. 
  • Do not use if you are HIV positive or have AIDS. 
  • Don't apply the TCA to areas where you have used hair removal products, have shaved, or used granular exfoliation products or buffing pads for several days pre-peel.  We need non-irritated skin for best results. 
  • Discontinue acid-based products, retinoids, acne skin products, granular products, and other exfoliators for 48 hours before peel application and 2 weeks post-peel.  

What You'll Need To Provide:

  • Petroleum jelly, an anti-biotic ointment, and an anti-itch cream.  Vaseline (petroleum jelly), Bacitracin or Neosporin (anti-bacterial creams) and Lanacaine or Cortaid (anti-itch) are recommended. 
  • An accurate kitchen timer. 
  • Q-tips or cotton pads, or gauze pads for applying the peel to skin.  Use the implement with which you are most comfortable.

How Long Will My Results Last?

--Several months for most clients.
--Using glycolic or lactic acid peels on a weekly basis will help to maintain your results longer.

Frequency Of Use (these are general guidelines for the majority of clients): 

Most clients using the 12.5% TCA will need to do a series of 2-3 peels, spaced about 2-3 weeks apart to realize optimal results.  Subsequently, use the peel every 60-90 days.  Light flaking or peeling for most.
  
Clients using the 15%, 18% and 21% strengths will realize more pronounced results and may need to do only 1 treatment.  Subsequently, use the peel every 60-90 days.

  • 12.5% is a light peel 
  • 15% is a light-medium peel  
  • 18% is a medium peel 
  • 21% is a medium-strong peel and should be used ONLY by clients who have tolerated the 18% with no problems. 
  • 24% is a strong peel
  • 30% should *never* be used at full strength... use our dilution recipes to create varying peel strengths for versatility 

If you are unsure where to begin, it's always a good idea to begin with the lightest strength.  We offer you a step-up program for safe usage. 

Do NOT begin with the 18% or 21% TCA unless you have used 15% several times successfully.  18% and 21% are much more aggressive peels and should not be applied to skin untested by TCA's previously.

ALWAYS NEUTRALIZE THIS PEEL PROPERLY.  THIS IS *NOT* A SELF-NEUTRALIZING PRODUCT.  If the burning from the product is too much for you, neutralize immediately.  Once the acid is off the skin, the burning sensation will stop.

Addicted!
Hoping this description will help others with aging skin. I am 55 and have had two previous chemical peels performed by a physician with great results (first time) and fair results (second time). I understand that is normal as your skin will often only get that great peel the first time. So I was hoping this would be the same. The first time I used the 15% I did two layers and got very minimal flaking. I wanted to go up in strength but since I already had the 15% decided to try two layers (three weeks later) again waiting double the time in-between layers. Much better results. Gained a full peel in areas around my eyes, forehead and mouth. Outer areas along ear area, flaking. I'm going to re-apply in three weeks along those areas. All that to say...the product works great once you find what works for you (re: layers and time). My skin is sun worn and what I'd consider tougher than young skin. I do plan to order the strongest strength to try later. My DIL also used this, 2 layers 2-3 minutes for each, and the burn was deeper than mine (youth and delicate skin) but the results were good. Ideally she should use a 15% only one layer. Old skin needs a deeper treatment. Advise: use your blowdryer on cool to minimize the burning feel and apply with a q-tip instead of cotton swab to control drips and more precise are application. Use vaseline on lips prior to treatment.

Ooh la la
I am new to peels and after many years struggling with acne ( ages 14 to 38 ) and extremely oily clogged pores/enlarged pores..I was left with a battle field of scars and damaged ice pic scars. I do also have a few indents in my skin which are very shallow similar to rolling scars. I started with the 8 % TCA and had very mild flaking. I did have some improvement but opted to go up to 15 % for even better results. I have only used the 15 % once and saw some good improvements in my overall skin tone, pores cleared and tightening. I know I will need to continue more peels, but I am very happy with the results so far. I also use other MUAC products and love them all

15%
i have large pores,light pimples, and seborheic dermatitis. this was my first peel. i decided to start light so i chose 15%. i applied the first layer and waited 3 minutes and the applied a second layer for another 3 minutes. i frosted. my skin was red like a bad sunburn for 2 days and then my skin became tight and started to crack and peel on day 3. all skin had peeled by day 5-6. the skin that was left was overall better. smaller pores,finer lines, less pronounced scarring (from past acne), and just overall better skin tone. i was certainly a bit nervous at first to do this but it all worked out. day 3-5 i looked a bit crazy while peeling so i didnt go out. definitely an improvement but not drastic. i will do it again but im going to do a double layer of 24% now that i know that it works, and my skin can take it. very good product but be ready to be in for a few days. i am also ordering the lactic,mandelic, and glycolic peels (will use each once a week for three weeks) to try out until im ready for the next tca peel. the prices are cheap enough and the reviews are good so im ready to try different things.hoping for the best

love
this work very well. it is a bit strong for the first time user. i used it on my back, shoulders and upper thigh. i had no peeling after the first week, however during week two, i peeled for about a week and a half straight. quite unsightly, but i kept the areas covered. be careful not to leave on too long. i used on my body rather than face and although the skin on the body is thicker than the face, its acid and will break down the lipids in the skin. i plan to do another peel to get the results i want. also helps with sebaceous pores. i had dark spots on my thighs from clogged pores (chicken skin/ strawberry skin) and this seemed to relieve some of the unsightlyness of these. i believe round 2 will definitely help with this.

Great peel
I had been doing blended TCA peels at a medical spa here. The highest they had was 10% TCA, and I wasn't seeing many results...just a bit of flaking. I used this for the first time at home, and all I can say is WOW. What a great peel! I actually frosted and had great peeling. I have VERY fair skin and light freckles with slight rosacea on my cheeks. My skin was bright red for the first day, it calmed down the second day (so I ran errands before I had to hide inside for a few days) and I was pretty much done with heavy and noticeable peeling in seven days. I'm still flaking a little bit, but I can go outside now. (Luckily I work from home so staying inside for a few days is easier for me than most.) I doubt I will go any higher...I don't want to risk burning my fair skin. I plan to do this quarterly or as needed. My main reason for using TCA was to rid my face of hereditary sebaceous hyperplasia which have surfaced now that I am 40 and "middle aged." They are still there, but they have flattened a lot and are not as noticeable. My freckles are lighter, and my skin is firmer and looks great. I recommend a good facial/extractions after peeling to clean the pores to prevent breaking out, too. Thanks for a great product and for saving me hundreds/thousands of dollars in peels at med spas, MUAC.

It's good
Let me start by saying I'm Black with a medium deep complexion. I had a very bad breakout so I washed everyday for four days with the Mandelic Acid cleanser and toner and they dried up every bump I had. As I write this my skin is peeling. I'm happy with it even though it's not as deep as I would like. For my second application I will do two layers spaced accordingly.

I LOVE it
I bought this and so far have done 3 peels. I LOVE it. It took me about 10 days to complete the peeling process. I love how much better my skin looked. My pores were smaller, my fine lines were diminished slightly but most of all my acne scars were soooooooo much smoother. My skin looks so pretty now. Thank you

Highly Recommend
I haven't done this peel in about 6 or 7 years I think, so I was really ready to peel again. One thing that I did different this time was to use a flat cotton pad to apply the TCA peel instead of a Q-tip and that really helped apply the acid faster and cover more skin at a time. That was a big help. The process went well and I started to peel on the 3rd day and was pretty much peeled by the 7th day. I did get some improvement, but since I really broke out with hormonal acne this summer and got so many little red scars, I have decided to do one or two more peels starting in mid November. This is all fine, and what I expected, since I have gone through the process before. One last tip is to have a small fan handy and fan your face while the acid is on, and that will help with the stinging. I highly recommend this process for anyone looking to home treat acne scars and fine wrinkles.

Good, relatively mild peel.
This is a good mid-strength peel. It has a definite discomfort when you use it, which means that it is working. With my "older" skin (50) and its turnover rate, it took almost two weeks to fully peel, and I looked a little funky after day two - days two through five, kind of wrinkly and old, from then on old and peeling. The aftermath, though was worth it. My skin is softer and some of the dicolorations are lighter. Watch for white spots on skin during tx. This is called frosting. It means you need to be done.

Good peel
The peel kit arrived right on time and it worked really well. i have used the 12.5% in the past and recently went up to 15%, i must admit i expected it to be a little more stronger but it seemed to work exactly like the 12.5% one so i might need to get a stronger one next time but over all i liked it.

Works well
I was a little nervous about using this but I followed the directions and it was very easy to use. I had a little bit of frosting in some areas but my skin was only red for about an hour after use. A few days after application my face peeled once and then peeled again a couple of days after that. Had about a week of peeling but I was able to go out in public every day except one. The hardest thing was not picking at my skin! The results were great. My skin was more refined, clearer, and smoother. I definitely plan to do another peel with this next month.

Very happy with results
I was initially hesitant to do at home peels for safety reasons. I did my research and having read a lot of positive feedback on MUAC chemical kits, I finally decided to start with 15% tca kit. The product arrived in about two weeks (I thought that was fairly fast, I live in Toronto). I have rough skin on my legs and chicken skin on my arms. I applied two layers, applying the second layer after 5 minutes. All together I had the peel for 8 minutes before washing it off with cold water. It does burn a bit but nothing that you can't handle. It was very itchy for the first 3 days but it went away eventually. Peeling in the legs started on the 7th day and on my arms on the 10th day. So far, I'm very happy with this product. For the price, it's definitely a steal. With the 2 oz kit, I think I can do about 4 peels on legs and on my arms (of course, at about 1 month interval). Thank you MUAC!!! I'm very happy with the results and TCA peels will definitely be a part of my skin regimen.

I've used this product once on my chest, still healing right now, and was very impressed at how wonderful it works and this is a low peel too! I will be working my skin up to a higher peel soon and can't wait to see the final results. I am in the process of removing sun damage and so far I am very impressed with this peel! There is no need to spend hundreds at a dermatologist office when this can be done successfully at home.

Great Product
I purchased the 15% TCA peel kit for myself. I am African American and I have really dark acne scarring, and hyper-pigmentation, on both cheeks, forehead and chin, worsened by my habit to pick. It has come to a point where makeup is not enough. So i read a ton of review and watched a ton of videos and finally felt confident to do it myself. I've only done a one layer peel once. It took about 7 day to completely peel. But the results were like WOW! My skin has not been this soft since I was young. Gone are the days of a dull looking face. No more dry patches! The over all luminosity of my skin is amazing! My pores are smaller. I did not see a significant change in the dark scarring with this first peel. However I feel with a few peels over time I will see an improvement. Unfortunately I spilled my TCA bottle all over the counter during my first peel...YIKES! I wish the kit came with a pipette and petri dish to make dispensing the product easier. So I'll have to order another kit to do a second peel and give an update with pictures. Great products MUAC!

I still dont know...
I am a first time user and researched for several months before officially deciding and purchasing Muacs 15%. I must note I did use glycolic swabs 3 times a week for several weeks as a prep. I discontinued a few days prior and also didnt exfoliate. I followed the instructions to a T and applied the tca peel and left it for 5 minutes. I had light peeling on the 2nd day around my chin area which continued upward the following days. I was completely done by day 7. I noticed a very slight difference but not as drastic as I had hoped. I suffer from large pores and light skin pigmentation. It has been a month and have decided to do another 15% peel but adding another layer or two. Hopefully this will help. ****MUAC COMMENT: Hi Kristina, Thank you for your feedback. As we note in our directions, we recommend doing a series of 3 peels spaced two weeks apart for best, initial results. So we would definitely urge you to finish that series. Using a 2-layer peel, also in the directions, will help those results. You may ultimately need a stronger percentage, but it does sound as if this is heading in the proper direction. Thanks for posting!****

I followed the directions doing a test area first then waiting 48 hours since I did order a higher strength than recommended...15 %. It turned out really great. Each day my skin looks better and better. I will do it again towards the end of the month. Having not done this peel before I was intrepid, and when I actually did my whole face I had some brown patches which the directions indicate can happen, but honestly it was an uneasy feeling for a few days. As my skin began to peel on the fourth day it looked as though some freclkles had merged into brown shapes. Then the peeling became more intense and the brown peeled away with the skin. I say this just in case someone has that experience so as to not be alarmed it does go away, just as the directions indicate. Definitely like the results.

Gentle Peel
I have suffered with the pregnancy mask for 4 years along with long-time acne scars. I have tried peels, pixel laser, dermabrasion, micro-dermabrasion, etc... you name it i've done it. While these can be effective, they can also be very pricey. I stumbled onto this site by watching a youtube video of girls with similar issues and they were using MUAC TCA peels. They seemed to like the results. So far I have done one peel 3 weeks ago and my 2nd one yesterday. My skin has been through a lot so the pain was minimal. Slight stinging,so I would suggest a little hand held fan while waiting. it peeled in the next couple days niceley. The second peel I double layered it in the worse areas (acne scars) and I have been applying aquafor at night to relieve the dryness. The second layer did cause a little frosting. It's too early to see major results, but i did see a little less hyperpigmentation from the first peel. I plan on continuing every 3 weeks until i see the best (realistic) results. You can't beat the price by doing it at home. Saves hundreds!

Great for perioral lines
I am 44, very fair complexioned and use retin a .05 pretty faithfully. I used the 12.5% TCA peel last year and liked the results. This year I purchased the 15% TCA, and the difference in side effects between the two strengths is huge. I did two passes of the 15% five minutes apart (burning and frosting), and for the following week my skin was red and my face swollen. Also, THE ITCHING was worse than anything I've experienced before, including poison ivy. I used an old tube of prescriptions strength anti itch ointment I could not have done without. The swelling and intolerable (though I'm here, so....) itching lasted exactly 4 overnights (the itchy feeling was horribly pronounced when trying to sleep). The peeling lasted about seven to 14 days. I am a smoker and purchased this 15% TCA specifically for one smoker's line forming above my top lip. That line is gone now, and I used this peel about a month ago. I am doing a second peel right now in a series of three peels spaced about a month apart. I hated hated hated the process of the first 15% peel, but I loved the results. I have sampled other MUAC products, but I really just use retin a, gentle cleansers to simply water (when I wear no makeup), oils and the MUAC TCA peels; and, nobody can guess I'm a smoker. I have family who also smoke and who are close in age & skin tone, and there is a definite difference between the quality of our skin. (I tell them of MUAC, but as women sometimes mislead other women about what exactly they use, I think they don't quite believe these TCA peels and Retin A are all I do.) In an attempt to stave off having to do another series of these peels til absolutely necessary, I'm planning on purchasing the 55% Lactic Acid peel as maintenance between TCAs (recommended by the amazing service staff of MUAC), but I haven't purchased that yet. I would recommend this peel to all smokers or former sun worshippers.

Results
Previously I had tried the Mandelic peel for about 6 months and was not seeing the results I wanted. I was afraid to use the Tca peel initial because it was a deeper peel. I have only used it once (Dec) but the results were drastic. All of my smaller hyperpigmentation is greatly diminished three weeks post peel. Two weeks after the Tca peel I went back to the Mandelic peel and I'm seeing better results from that as well. I plan to do another Tca peel in Feb in order to fade my larger hyperpigmentation.

Still In Prep
So I am super impressed by all the results I've seen by people using this peel and I cannot wait to see mine!! I bought the 1/2 oz kit. I haven't had the downtime to use it yet. And I'm so glad I haven't because I was reading through some reviews on this site and watched a few on youtube and they said to prep your skin before doing a peel this strong. So I just purchased the fade serum and the retinol A to calm my production of melanin. I suffer from terrible hyperpigmentation, my skin will scar over the tiniest pimple, scratch, cut, anything!! Hope to be writing a review in the next 3 weeks and I'm using two of them to prep. Wish me Luck!! The shipping was impeccably fast as well!

The TCA peel worked great, Im glad I went with the 15% to begin with, since it was my first peel, but I will definitely going with a stronger TCA next time.

Very Impressed
I have always had my peels done at my dermatologist's office but was time consuming, expensive and inconvenient. Tried buying peel on line somewhere else and was total fake. Bought MUAC and was nervous but so happy to say that results were great. Every bit as good as the ones from my doctor. I used 18% because my skin was used to peels. I have a lot of sun damage from years without sunscreen as a kid. At this price I have the luxury of doing my neck, chest and top of hands. Great product, great company!

Next time Im going stronger
I applied the 15% TCAwith 3 layers five minutes apart and did not frost. My face did feel burned, ( eventually )and was back to normal 24 hours later. Even though I didnt peel like a zombie, the wrinkled dandruff look lasted forever and required a lot of time off work for minimal results. I wish I would have gone 20% to make the results worth the time. I always use over the counter peels so maybe thats why It didnt seem strong enough? Im very freckled so I ised the fade serum for a few weeks before peel and used sunscreen outdoors after. I did not have any complications. Now my skin looks very exfolliated and aim no longer scared of the stuff so I did get some benefit. ****MUAC Comment: Hi Jamie, thanks for your post. If you use acids often, then you skin is accustomed to them and would, indeed, need something stronger to give you more pronounced results. All the best and thanks again for posting!***

Liked & Approved
I have to say that I like how my skin turned out after using this product. And if you're wondering if it's too strong or something, let me tell you my experience. My skin is not super sensitive but neither super harsh, it is somewhat in the middle. And I used the peel on my face, arms and legs. From my experience I can say that is strong enough for your face, you feel the burning sensation in a short time, it starts frosting and all that, but talking about effectiveness, maybe if you have too deep scars or spots it won't be the best. Good news is that you always can do another, so it's ok anyways. On the rest parts of your body I would suggest a stronger concentration, when I did it on my legs and on my arms, it barely burned, no frost was formed, and it took more than a week before starting peeling. Plus, my scars only lighten a very little bit, I looking forward trying the 18% and i would suggest you to do the same from the beginning, especially if you want to attack those parts that are not usually very sensitive. But overall, good product.

Excellent product. I used it twice. First for very light peel, then two weeks later I did a second peel and also used a second layer to achieve some frothing. I was very nervous that I cold have damaged my skin.. BUT NO WAY followed directions exactly and now after lots of flaking and mild redness, my skin looks refreshed! It has faded all my sunspots and messed wrinkles, not to the extent I wanted but enough that it WAS worth it! Love this product highly recommend!

Good
I like this peel. I suggest that you layer until you have frosting. And then neutralize only where it has frosted and wait for more frosting and neutralize as it frosts. My hyperpigmentation is visibly lighter. I've done this peel twice, but since it took me so long to frost and I could only get a few spots on my face to frost, I bought the 18%. I will wait a month before trying this one out because it seems like my skin builds a very fast tolerance to peels. BTW I'm an AA female.

First TCA Peel
Not sold on this one... did not peel although my first TCA peel ever. However, I did "purge" which was not fun . I prefer the Radiance and Lactic peels . ****MUAC Comment: Thanks for your feedback, G. If your skin is accustomed to peeling with other acids, layering the TCA peel will typically produce visible peeling for you. Again, thanks for your feedback!****

Too Strong
Too strong and left my forehead dark. ****MUAC Comment: We are terribly sorry this product did not perform as you had expected, Shan. As we note on our website, TCA is not always appropriate if your skin tones are darker. It's always best to begin with a light peel first. We appreciate your feedback. The office will be in-touch to help you with the dark areas. These are easily resolved with our Micro Polish.****

At home TCA peel
Got a great peel! Thorough, clear instructions and I love the green tea cleanser that came with it. Could probably use a higher strength next time. Can't beat the prices here and it was nice getting little samples with my order.

Review of 15%tca
I love your tca products! I had 3 sessions of ipls for my blemishes at a medspa, unfortunately it caused severe scarring, and hyperpigmentation. It was awful! I didn't discover your products until about two years ago, and it has been the purchase of the 12% TCA, and now recently the 15% TCA, that I have seen a huge improvement in the texture of my skin. It's becoming smoother, more even tone, and the orange peel texture is slowly improving over time. I credit it to your products peels! My ipls were done when I was 31, I will be 40 soon, and it wasn't until two years ago with the use of these products I began noticing a turn around. Thank you MUAC, you have helped me tremendously!

MUAC 15% TCA peel
I have a medium dark complexion and this peel was perfect for me. I followed the directions and my first face and neck peel was a success! Scars were 50% lighter and my skin overall was softer and a lot brighter. I suffer from dark scars/hyperpigmentation on my neck and chin from years of tweezing unwanted hairs. Also adolescent acne scarring from 10-15 years ago. Those scars were almost a Hershey chocolate brown, and now they have lightened to just a few shades off from my natural caramel skin tone.

Will continue to use
I've struggled with dark marks forming on my skin after acne which take super long to fade. This has really helped with removing fine surface layer. I first used this very cautiously not knowing my reaction, only applying 1 coat for 5 mins. The results were not strong enough. After 6 days I used it again, this time quite liberally by applying 2 coats (second one stung). Some frosting appeared. My skin went quite dark for a few days (can be a little alarming to see the burn the TCA leaves) and by day 5 it peeled very nicely and I was left with great results. This peel is not too intense and about a 6 day turnaround is great. I'll continue to maintain with this. I have medium brown indian skin.

Very happy with the results. I was worried at first because it took me about two weeks to heal. The first week my skin looked like I had a layer of glue on it. The entire next week my skin was very dull and rough to the touch. At the two week mark I finally had the result I wanted. Even skin tone with a nice glow.

15% TCA Peel
Great product, did exactly what I needed it to. Looking forward to doing my 2nd peel in the next few weeks, as I know the improvements are likely to be cumulative over the first 3 peels. Fab product! I currently maintain the 1st round results with the Mandelic Acid 25% peels 1-2x per week, and am about to increase the strength of the Mandelic to 40% to continue improving my skin.

This is my fourth time buying TCA peel from MUA. I always do it for my hands and feet because they tend to be darker than the rest of my body. With great care immediately after peel and up to a week after peel the results will be beautiful.

I purchased this perl to remove PIH. I tested it on a spot on my legs and saw peeling but not much lightening of the spot after two uses. I tried it on my face and got some peeling on my chin but otherwise no improvement. The second time, my skin peeled all over my face but no imp in dark marks or skin texture. Will try again but right now pretty disappointed because I even alternated with the fade peel with no results.

I was very satisfied with my TCA peel! My skin is so much better! I did 2 peels 2 weeks apart. I was very worried about it but everything worked out great! Not sure if I used too much, but I only got 2 peels out of the sample bottle. Very happy with it though! Will be using again!

Great results
I haven't done a peel for a little over a year. I used the 12 percent strength since my late 20s. I noticed my almost 40 year old skin needed some TLC. I purchased the 15 percent, and wow, I'm really impressed. It's been a few weeks and my skin has returned to normal but crow's feet, forehead lines, and dark spots greatly improved. I'm going to do one more peel in another few weeks. Trying to give my skin some time to rest. Although it seemed I had some peeling in more place than others, I've seen great improvement as well in spots I didn't see peel, must've been microscopic because the spots are gone and I've literally tried at least 10 different over the counter products with no improvement. So I will be a forever customer. Thank You.
