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.

MY HOLY GRAIL!!
Ive never really written a long review but I have to explain my process when I started using this product. This stuff really works I was skeptical at first but after reading positive reviews I decided to give It a try. When I first applied the peel I felt a light sting it went away after a few seconds. the third day my skin started to peel. I applied the peel all over my neck and chest area by the way. Im on my first week and my Skin has peeled and looks flawless. I no longer see the skin discoloration. I will be purchasing 2 more kits. I love this stuff!! please do not discontinue MUAC!! THANK YOU

TCA peel
I love this product and have been using it for years. I am outside all summer - every summer and while I use SPF faithfully, sun gets through and my skin has noticeable damage. By fall, my skin has both dark and light spots, it's dull and feels thick and leathery. This is not just my face, but my arms, chest, neck, upper back and the front of my thighs ( I love my convertible!) too. Every fall I begin a process where I do a series of peels on all of my sun damaged locations. The TCA 15% does a fantastic job on my face neck and chest. I apply it (follow directions) at a time that works for me and for 2 days following, my skin is rosy to red and tight but fine to go out in public. The following 4 days I am actively peeling and need to reapply moisture often, but I can be out and about albeit without make-up. I love that I can plan when to do my own peels even changing last minute as social plans change. I use the TCA 18% on my arms, thighs, shoulders and my upper back. This peel is stronger and really zaps the discoloration on the 2nd and 3rd time I use it. As I wear clothes which covers the peeling process, I can do these areas without too much concern about being in public. I use about $30 worth of TCA from MUAC to perform 2-4 peels each fall and through the winter. I have paid $200 at a spa to have a single peel applied to just my face! A single peel is actually not something I would recommend, it takes at least 2 to see improvement in discoloration. My face and décolleté are perfect after 2 peels, but my shoulders and upper back can sometimes need up to 4. MUAC makes it affordable for me to fight back the signs of aging (still use the SPF) and to undo the damage that an outdoor active lifestyle can have on my skin.

African American Hyperpigmentation results
I have spent many months researching peels and results with different percentages. I felt with all of my knowledge the 18% tca peel is what I needed. I want to say I am absolutely happy with my results. I did peels for seven days, and along with the Argan oil it wasn't bad at all. My results were the hyper-pigments from acne scarring has all but left. The kit arrived timely and my cart is all ready to go for the next order. Thank You MUAC.

Great results, every time.
I don't know if you've read any of my previous reviews, but I brag about how pretty my skin is for a woman turning 60. And yes, I fight all those things the rest of you do: fine lines, age spots, and uneven pigment. For my own personal reasons, I have chosen not to go the filler route, even tho I have seen some great results. What I HAVE done, however, is used MUAC's TCA peels since I was about 43. I started with the 12% and was able to go to the 15% rather quickly. I do it about every 6-9 months, but ALWAYS in September after I've had more sun exposure than I wanted during the summer. I'm now at the 18%, and know I can count on consistent results. Don't be afraid to try this. The instructions that come with the peels are very explicit, so follow them carefully, I always do this on a Mon night, and am finished peeling by Sunday. That's just me and my skin . Good lucky!

This is Magic
I did a 18% double layer 2 weeks ago and my progress was amazing. My acne scars have greatly diminihed and my skin is smoother. my friend and sister who both deal with hyperpigmentation and they both have seen significant fading of their spots. I recommend this to anyone who suffer from acne scars and hyperpigmentation.

Good for acne scars
I bought this along with 24%TCA for hyper-pigmentation from body acne. This did a good job, and for people with more sensitive skin it will be a good choice to use on body parts like the back and shoulders for acne scarring. BTW I have a darker skin tone.

This is my second order
I have had several professional peels at $375 a pop. I know this isn't the exact same thing but it comes pretty close! I am able to do two passes - meaning I apply one layer, wait 5 minutes and then apply the second layer. Sometimes I frost slightly during the first pass but not all over my face. I apply neurteralzer with a cotton ball to just that spot and then I keep waiting for my timer to go off. I bought a mini fan off amazon that helps with the discomfort. It hurts on the second pass and I find that I'm a pretty tough cookie, so this peel is pretty strong. Especially on tha second pass! Ouch! I just keep telling myself that it will all pay off in the end, which it does. I'd like to share this tip with all who read this: use retinol on the second and third night only. When I get my professional peels done, they give me a post peel product bag and one of the products is "VisioMD perfecting Complex". It's retinol. It dries the skin out and speeds up the peeling process. Only use it on the second and third night tho. No more than that. I bought some Tretinioin online and use .05%. I'm totally finished peeling by day 5....sometimes on day 6. Also, when I do the second pass and I see my skin frost, I let it frost for about 20 seconds and then I Neutralize. I absolutely LOVE this peel. I bought the 21% but I don't have enough courage to use it yet. I will post a review (and maybe some pics) when I do.

I was pleased with this peel. It worked effectively and my skin looked new,fresh and glowy after using the 18% peel. I began peeling on about the 3rd day and was oretty much through with the major peeling by day 7, but be orepared to be in the house and out of the sun and public eye for the full week, because your skin will be waxy looking, darkened and discolired by the next day folliwing this peel.

Fabulous peel!
I have used a lighter peel from here in the past, and it worked well but considering my acne scars on the right side of my face I needed something stronger. I was nervous because I still had to go to work while I healed, but forged ahead anyway. I am very pleased with the results!! I definitely needed this peel and will have to use it a few times before I achieve the results I want. The peeling was a lot more than the lighter peel ( I believe 15%) but I managed to survive going to work like that! I highly recommend these peel kits. It even got rid of my melisma. Thank MUAC! I am not so self conscious anymore and my skin looks younger.

My skin looks AMAZING!!!
I rarely review products but this one is worth it!! I used this peel at home for the first time a week ago (on Monday night). I'd had two peels professionally done but didn't see the results I wanted and was tired of paying so much for them. I used the 18% peel. Left it on for 5 minutes, put another layer on and left it for 2 more minutes. I was kind of scared for a few days afterwards (days 2-4) that I had overdone it but I kept Neosporin, Vitamin E oil and Mederma on my face faithfully. I was done peeling by Saturday with a last few flakes coming off Sunday. My skin looks AMAZING!!! Better than it has in years. I will definitely be using this product again. I should have probably started off a little slower and I wouldn't have worried I overdid but it worked out and I really couldn't be happier with the results!!!

I don't like writing reviews but i have tried many products that i really love and have written a review for all of them. I love this product. I found that this peel doesn't sting as bad as a different brand i previously used while still being very effective. I have also used it on my mom and she had minor stinging. It has really improved her skin and she loves it. She had a lot of dark patches all over her face and they are gone with just one use her wrinkles have also improved. She never thought her skin could this good with a product that is so inexpensive.

Excellent Product
I was skeptical about using chemical peels but i eventually decided to try this 18% TCA peel. I followed the directions that was given to me with my package. The pain is so intense but tolerable. The third day my face began to peel. My healing time took about 10 to 12 days and i must say the final results are amazing! My skin is clearer than ever, my fine lines and freckles are less. I must say that i look 10 years younger. Im 30 years old and facial peel is the best thing i ever did. Please make sure to do your patch test first to make sure you are not allergic to the chemical. I am a keloid-former but the peel went really well for me. I think it depends on your skin type and how sensitive you are. Just stay away from the sun!

Peel
I am so glad I've found this peel. Finally I have something that actually works. I've spend hundreds of pounds in clinics on peels etc and never had anything like the results this peel gives. You do need to be very careful with it as it is strong stuff. I was using glycolic peels at 50% for the last year, so I think that has helped to prime my skin. As another reviewer said, I would only do part of my skin at a time as there is down time and it is noticeable - but all worth it as the results are fantastic!

Skin Empress
This is a great product, but very powerful, so proceed gently. You will redden and perhaps darken, then peel, which in my case was a LOT for both, but it does work. Take the time to find a few informed videos on youtube and get a fanned brush. This is not a casual application. You should be informed and diligent about the process. Oh, and be aware that the entire process takes a many days, so it will be obvious that something is happening to your skin. I did not really care, but I thought it would be more subtle and no one would know. They knew, but you know what, they also saw the results, so who cares???

18% tca peel
Didn't really have a good effect. Scars just as bad as they were before using. Not not much in the bottle to try 2x ****MUAC Comment: Thank you for your feedback, Takila. As our directions state, this peel should be done in a series of 3 applications. Then repeat as necessary. The sample size you ordered does not provide enough peeling serum for 3 peels. Scarring is dense tissue that is difficult to pentrate, thus it will take more than one or two applications for improvement. If your skin is tolerant of this strength, you may need the 21% to see more pronounced results. But, mulltiple applications will still be needed, per our directions. Thanks again for your feedback!****

MUAC user of TCA Peels!
I have used the 12% peels for several years. I finally moved to a higher percentage, the 18% but after two peels I think my skin was really ready for a stronger peel and I should have gotten the 25% or whatever is the next step up from 18. Overall these peels are amazing! It really depends on each persons skin type on what level they should increase too after starting from the bottom.

Excellent at knocking out age spots and bumps
I know some people freak out if their skin peels but I love me a good peel. i have used the 8% TCA in the past and while it will give a mild peel, the 18% gives me more what I am looking for: A deeper peel for quicker results. I do have sensitive skin and have to be careful what I use but I can use this peel on my Mediterranean skin without any issues. If you are new to peels follow the advice MUAC gives and work your way up to a stronger % so you know how your skin will react. Plan for downtime. Moisturize with basic moisturizer. Don't pick. Use sunscreen. Etc. I use the TCA a few times a year and in between use the MUAC Mandelic acid peel a few times a week. Thank you MUAC for making such great and affordable products.

Be strong - Results will Pay off! :)
I've done most of the peels available on this site. And, yesterday I did another 18% TCA peel! It was tough, but will be worth it! I've done the 12% and this is my 2nd time doing 18%. The other time I did one of these was a year or two ago. But, I have been doing other peels regularly - like glycolic, mandelic, and many of the other ones they sell here. I give myself plenty of time off in between them though. So, the first time I did this peel, I was so nervous and didn't put up with the pain level too well. In general, I think I have a decent pain threshold. But, the pain was so intense the first time I did 18%, that I didn't leave it on long enough, it didn't frost, and only created light peeling. It still made my face look old, crepey and wrinkly until the little peeling occurred. So, if I am going to do a TCA peel, I want to really GO FOR IT and go all out, with as deep of a peel as possible, without damaging myself! So, this time, I was mentally trying to prepare for the pain, and to do two layers if frosting didn't occur with the first layer. I first cleaned my face with alcohol. I did one layer and it really, really hurt. But, amazingly, I could not believe it, but the pain sort of subsided or faded out by 3-5 minutes later. I still knew that applying another layer though, was going to feel like I had lit a match on my face. And, it did. By the way, my skin generally is not sensitive, though it gets read easily. It is usually dry and can usually handle all sorts of peels. It can handle these peels too, as long as I can keep my cool and deal with the pain! :) So, after layer two, I ran to the freezer and put my face in it for a minute. Then, I was able to wait it out for the full five minutes. Only some areas fully frosted. I would have gone over more areas, but I ran out as I had used the stuff previously and was low on it. So, it was fine. Certain areas that I wanted to really improve on (a wrinkle on the forehead), the area between the eyebrows, lines next to the eyes and lips and discoloration above the upper lips - all frosted! So, that was awesome! It's only been one day so far, my skin is tight and I think tomorrow it will start shedding. I will update with another review once this is all done. Last time, even with the lighter peeling that occurred, I saw great results and improvements. I did this on my hands before too and my sun spots literally peeled off! Amazing!

Great peel but everyone's different
I used this kind of peel maybe 2 years ago at 12.5% & needed to boost it at least once to achieve results. Since it was so long ago I wanted to be careful not to go too much higher % as well as when I used it again, even though I know my skin is stubborn. Although I didn't get red & the stinging went away very quickly as it always does I still didn't boost for my first time back with a higher peel & I did not get the full advantage but I'll know for my next one. In my case, getting very severe cystic acne late in my teens & having horrible scars from it my dermatologist could only treat my acne. Back then being on a really high dose of a dangerous medication that I think is now off the market. These scars were upsetting & I was happy my doctor could get rid of the acne but being left with the scars was devastating. Looking for anything to be rid of them was getting very costly but going to all of those professionals ended up making me one with my own face. I did so much research & found this site & even my dermatologist noticed a difference! My only recommendation is follow the directions VERY carefully because chemical peels aren't so easy & you CAN do serious harm. If I can find a before & after picture I will absolutely post them, but honestly I always avoided cameras when my face was at it's worst...if only I knew it would have come so far. Since everything else I tried failed I didn't think something I did would help more than the real "pros"!

Loved it. Amazing. Scary process though. ****MUAC COMMENT: Hi Shayla... thanks for your comments. Yes, a TCA peel can be scary for 1st time users. We advise using our 12.5% or 15% sample sizes as first efforts. These are considered lighter peels and gradually introduce you to the TCA process. And, for many skin-types, the lighter peels are all that will be needed. We're so happy you ultimatley enjoyed the 18% peel, however. Thanks again for posting!****

Ms.
This is my first time doing a TCA peel and I am impressed. However, I think I either should have done a second layer, or bought a stronger peel. I have "sometimes" skin - sometimes it's dry, sometimes oily, sometimes it's red, or full of acne, or sometimes it's normal and I have a glow. I am 43, and have not only spent the last 10 years trying to figure out my skin type, but also fighting aging, discoloration, acne/acne scars and horrible age spots. I have literally tried every product under the sun and moon. A few years ago I decided to make it important to use products not tested on animals. As you may or may not be aware, this greatly eliminated my options. I stumbled on MUAC by accident - my roommate's kid was watching a video on how to apply make up and MUAC was mentioned. These products have literally changed my life. I use the mandelic toner, the fade serum, and I go back and forth between the glycolic and lactic acid peels. I decided that it was time to try a TCA peel. I was nervous, but I did a lot of research. This product was easy to use, and gave me very impressive results. It wasn't quite the results I wanted, but I believe it was because this percentage just wasn't strong enough. My stubborn age spots have nearly diminished, but I still have some discoloration and scarring (I know scarring takes time). I will definitely do another peel in a couple of months. For those of you out there that also have "sometimes" skin, a TCA peel is a really great peel to give you a fresh start. It's a miracle in a bottle and I really wish I would have known about MUAC 10 years ago - it would have saved me so much money and heartache! Please understand that you do need downtime for this peel - I started peeling like crazy on day 4 and you are not decent enough to go out or to work. I was able to work from home for a week after this peel.

Amazing
I have tried every cream, oil, etc. out there that claims it will even out skin tone. I was a long time sun worshiper and birth control taker. Besides melasma I have light acne scaring. This product is just as good as the peels I've paid big bucks for in a Dr's office. Great results! Must follow instructions and by day 5 be ready to peel and not exfoliate the peeling skin. Different parts of my face peeled even at day 10. My husband's face didn't really peel but his face still looks better. On 2nd peel in 3 weeks and can already see better skin. Thank you MUAC! Highly recommend

THIS PEEL REALLY WORKS!!!
Do noooot hesitate on purchasing this peel, it took away my dark spots!!! After years of using cremes to eilminate the darkspots and uneven skin tone on my forhead.. i cant believe i never knew this was the solution to my problem! Try this solution mix if you have oily skin, and dark spots, and an uneven skin tone, and bad acne marks, and if you've been struggling as long as I have, or not even, i still reccomend this tca peel!! Good luck!!!

I ordered 18% having used lots of peels for many years even had laser a few times for acne scars. It peeled big time! A nice even layer of tight skin which I kept super moisturized at work and no one noticed. It peeled ater 7 days. Under is perfect skin. It removed brown spots because I applied it darn heavy. Highly recommended for maintain fresh skin. I am 55.

18% TCA
I have been incredibly pleased with MUAC's peels. I started with 12.5% a few years ago, and have since used the 15% and now 18%. I believe this kind of deep exfoliation is key to my ongoing skin care routine, and hope that it is generating collagen. I gave this only four stars because I did not get the depth of peel that I had thought I would from 18% (I followed instructions and did three layers - but did not frost). I did moisturize heavily, and I have since heard that may have impacted my results. So I'm going to give it another try in a few weeks. But I'm very happy overall with the peels and other products I've purchased from MUAC.

Perfect peel! I used a tca peel from _______ and this one is so much better, not to put ______ down or anything. This peel seemed to give me a much more even complexion. I am thrilled with the results. From day one, it took 10 days to completely peel. I layered it twice. Thank you, I will re-order when I need to from Makeup Artist Choice! :)

I have used the TCA peel for quite a few years and I will continue to use them in the future. I have been told by my friend who knew me before I started using them that she sees such a difference in my complexion I really should have done a before and after picture. My acne scars are not as noticeable and that was my main goal.

New amazing skin
I have always been a mascara and go girl, but since turning 49 it's like all the sudden all the years of going to the beach/pool sunbathing caught up to me all at once. I spent months trying to cover up all of the hyper-pigmentation and damage I had done to my skin. Granted I'm not really a foundation wearing person, just a little powder, bronzer or a tinted moisturizer for special occasions. At 51 I found myself trying everything to conceal the lines wrinkles and general ruddiness of my skin nothing worked. I also have very little money and couldn't afford to have a professional peel. I had tried a few others peels from different places, with no success. I followed the instructions and watched numerous YouTube videos before doing the peel. MUAC 18% TCA peel was the miracle l needed I wish I had taken before during and after pictures. Honestly I can hardly wait to do it again and see even more beautiful bright skin. THANK YOU MUAC SO MUCH.

I tried the 12.5% TCA, my first-ever chemical peel. I let it sit for 5 minutes, then did a second application for three minutes. It has been 6 days and nothing has happened! Not even slight flaking! From everything I have read, this is not common. I am now going to purchase the retinol and the next strongest percentage of TCA.

Go for it but..
Okay my review is for treating LEGS only, as I haven't used on the face. So, for face I can't say. I first bought the 15 and it created flakes (annoying ones) but not much visible change. I bought the 18 next and was seeing only mild results but eventually my legs started peeling thin peeling. For some reason the peeling doesn't start right away, it's like getting a sunburn, no peel at first. I was toward the end of the bottle and thought okay I'll give it another shot. After doing the original peels this one had the frost affect on my legs and it burns and itches. So Im waiting on results and have antibiotic gel on my legs (will see). For the price it's totally worth it and wish I would've done it sooner??. My MAJOR advice is do not underestimate this product, don't get it on your hands to touch your eyes!! BE RESPONSIBLE. This is for the better if your safe!!!

Elbows Clarified ????
I used the TCA 18% on my elbows and I didn't think it worked but I would say about 2 weeks later I noticed my elbows started peeling. They look really good and I've started using the mandelic acid cleanser on them. I think my skin was in that condition for so long it took awhile to let go.

This product is FANTASTIC! Like some other reviews I have read I was a little scared at first. But the instructions were very clear and made perfect sense. After a couple of days of my skin looking "scary", it now looks GREAT! The acne scars that I had look way less noticeable, and some discoloration I had is gone. I know when I use this product again, it will look even better. Thanks for have such great products. I will continue ordering this product and others I have wanted to try by purchasing samples. I do wonder, can you use this peel on other parts of the body not just on your face?

Go for it!
This is my first purchase of chemical peels. I've never had one before. I'm glad I chose the 18%. It was very mild. It did cause mild flaking. I spent a lot using on legs and arms. I wanted to leave this review for others afraid like me to try peels. It's not bad at all, nothing serious. It might start burning and if it does its more itchy/sunburn feel. I have used it completely on face as I'm still overly cautious BUT I wish I'd bought this SOONER!

AWESOME 18%TCA peel
I would start saying DON'T BE AFFRAID and try it you'll love it. I was affraid because that was my 1st time using peels at home so my face is already used to use RETIN a and glicolic acid cream so I started with 18% tca first time and yes I put one layer for 5min and put the 2nd layer for about 1min and burns like a hell but I won't regret my skin (after all peeling stage that was 7 days without going out and wearing sunblock) is now super glory without some melasma stubborn and some acne scars look less deep. I'll continue doing another shot on the next 3 months to see more improvement but it took away everything like fine lines, I'm just 30. Super recommended;)

I am very active with rowing, kayakiing and running. Living in Florida I am in the sun a lot. I do wear a sunscreen but my skin gets dull. After the first peel I could see an amazing difference in my skin texture and overall appearance. I have now done three peels and will continue these as I love my new skin. I would recommend these peels to anyone who wants to see a brightness and improvement in skin tone. Numerous friends in my exercise class have commented on how great I look. Again I highly recommend this Product!

Easy to use. 5 to 7 days peel time. Great results. Follow directions as stated. Would recommend for skin type 4 and lower. Evens out skin tone. To prevent spots from returning you will have to use a SPF 30 when going out into the sun. Well worth the money!!

I would recommend the TCA Peel
I have only used this strength once and followed the directions by using it sparingly. Considering the fact that I have had IPLs and have used the lower strength TCA peel numerous times, I only peeled a little in one area. Next time I use it, I will put a second layer of product on my face. This is why I gave it a 4 star instead of 5 star. I would recommend the TCA peel at either strength for an "at home" peel.
