TCA 40 Update

Posted by My Syringoma Story on Tuesday, February 4, 2020 Under: TCA
In my previous post, I had applied 1 layer of TCA 40 all over my face. I started peeling about 2 days after and then continued to peel for another 5 days. It was a mild peel and it was probably because I used very little of the TCA 40 on my gauze before I applied it. I am still happy with the results. It didn't remove any of my syringomas and that wasn't my intention but it made my face have a more even tone. It's still by no means, even but it is more even and that to me shows this product does work if I am looking to make my face just look overall better. As you can tell, I have a large forehead so my forehead is always darker than the rest of my face. During the summer months, it is more obvious. I've started wearing a cap when I am outside for this reason. For the sake of video editing time, I did a video result/recap of my TCA 40 application using Tik Tok. See below:

Remember, TCA is an acid and to never use more than 50% proof (especially if you're doing it yourself and not a professional). I used 40% proof and that was borderline dangerous for using TCA for the first time for my whole face. I think I've seen more people use between 10% - 25%. Always wear gloves and after-care is just as important. Stay away from the sun, wear a large hat to cover the face if you are going outside, wear sunscreen and do not peel your face or use heavy soaps, etc. Use at your own risk. If you scar easily, do not use it. If you have sensitive skin, do not use it.

And again, I'm not a professional and just a do-it-yourself type of girl to solve my own skin problems.

About Me

I am a woman in my 30s who have had syringomas since I was in my early 20s. I usually use a cream to remove the biggest syringomas every year at home, by myself because they affect my self-esteem. It hurts when I do this. I know that they will always grow more and more on my face but I want to keep them under control so that I don't eventually get 100 syringoma bumps around my eyes at one time. It'll be a constant struggle and I've come to terms with what I have to do.
As always, research and buy with caution. There will always be new products out there and they can be really dangerous for your skin. I can't always get back to the comments on YouTube immediately with school and kids pulling my strings left and right but I appreciate all of your encouragement. Thank you readers and viewers for sticking with me and giving advice to me and others who have been going through the same skincare problems for so many years. Stay safe, everybody.

Recently, I became an Amazon affiliate so links may earn a commission for me, but it's not much as barely anyone finds this website. If you're here, thank you and good luck with your bumps.
