"I got a feeling that tonight’s gonna be a good night
that tonight’s gonna be a good night
that tonight’s gonna be a good good night wooh hoo" (x4)

The Beauty Bin gave me an opportunity to experience free TCA peeling through 6F Aesthetic and Anti-Ageing Center and with my recent treatment, I'd like to express my deepest gratitude and full satisfaction to both of them.


It all started with a blog contest, then announcing of winners, then scheduling of my TCA Peeling session. Since I am not familiar with Makati area, I had my bf accompany me there. (6F Aesthetic and Anti-Ageing Center is located at 14F Medical Plaza Makati, Amorsolo Cor. Dela Rosa St., Legaspi Village, Makati City.)

I have no idea of what TCA peeling is. But by browsing through the 6F website I found out that it is a chemical peel usually applied to help control oil production, lighten hyper pigmentation and even out skin color.

When I first spoke with Jovie to specify my preferred schedule, the first thing I asked is how long will the process take. She said probably an hour.

I was 30 minutes late behind my schedule so I have to wait for my turn since there was an ongoing session when I arrived. Karen is the chief nurse who took charge of my back TCA peel. It was my first time and the tingling and stinging sensation was initially tolerable. But after few minutes, the stings seem to be stronger and I can feel discomforts and itchiness, which was perfectly normal according to her and the endpoint of this treatment would be the strongest stinging sensation. Oh, okay, I got it coz I FELT it.

I can say that everyone at 6F are welcoming and friendly. I will just update you guys about the result of my TCA peel since it usually takes 2 weeks to complete the peeling process.

I'm so excited to a more gorgeous me. Just a little makeover and my 2010 will be great! Yahoo, there will be a party!

Happy Holidays!

oh Lord. TCA peels really HURT for me. I only used a 10% solution before, but it still hurt :(

what concentration did they use on you? Good thing you found it tolerable, I didn't. Did they use a topical anesthetic?

I've seen on the label its 15% solution. Not sure though. There are two cooling fans besides me during the process, but right now, my back is terribly itchy. I dont know if it will be safe to take anti allergy pills such as Celestamine.

Lizzie, hey, Im glad you got your treatment before the holidays start! Weee!

Thanks for sharing your experience with the treatment. I know how the 'sting' feels... but I love how TCA works wonderfully on my face :) My sister's the one having her back TCA-ed... and it can get awfully itchy, yes.
