TCA 15%

I did not get much frosting or peeling with the 15%, even with 2 layers, but it was refreshing to my skin. I also bought the 30% TCA from Theory Skin Care. I used two layers of 30%, and that was intense! It frosted and my skin peeled. But, the skin scaled on my chin, and that was unpleasant. I think I will only do one layer of 30% on my chin next time. TCA is good stuff, just serious at higher concentrations.
