My Journey with the TCA Peel: How I Reversed Sun Damage and Achieved Radiant Skin

Starting the journey to reverse sun damage and restore radiant skin can seem like a big task, especially for women over 50 like me. 

Being in the sun can make you feel good, but over time, it can also damage your skin in ways that you can see, from hyperpigmentation and fine lines to sunburn and skin cancer.

For years, the sun left a tangible legacy on my skin, with noticeable damage on my arms, chest, and upper back. No matter what I tried to heal and rejuvenate my skin, nothing seemed to really make a difference—until I stumbled upon a solution that seemed almost too good to be true.

After thorough research and consultation, I decided to explore the TCA peel as a solution. Let me tell you about my experience with the TCA peel. It became a key part of my journey to rejuvenate my skin.

The Journey Begins: Preparing for the Peel

I stepped into this phase with determination and was excited about the life-changing possibilities that lay ahead. After extensive research, I was convinced that a 30% TCA peel was the answer I needed. The initial treatment by a skilled doctor was incredibly effective, rejuvenating my skin beyond expectations. 

However, the catch was the price—a steep $1000 per session with a recommended follow-up at the same cost. This steep price was my call to do more research and find a different way to keep getting these results without breaking the bank.

Discovering Platinum Skincare

As I stood at a crossroads, torn between my longing for ongoing skin treatment and the practicality of managing my finances, I stumbled upon Platinum Skincare. 

Their reputation for expertise in chemical peels, coupled with the abundance of glowing five-star reviews, immediately piqued my interest. After watching all the videos featuring Jen, the founder of Platinum Skincare, I began to feel a sense of assurance that I could do it myself at home.

Recently, I had the most wonderful chat with Jen, the genius behind Platinum Skincare. We talked about TCA peel and how it can work wonders on wrinkles, fine lines, and sun damage. From the different stages of TCA peels to how to use them just right, we covered it all. Plus, she dished out some valuable tips on which skin types can benefit the most and how to get those sunspots and other skin issues under control.

You can catch the whole conversation on my YouTube channel—trust me, you won’t want to miss it!

Escaping The Price of Expertise

The biggest hurdle was crystal clear: the steep cost of professional treatments was holding me back from achieving the skincare results I longed for. 

It felt like a barrier stood between me and my journey towards healthier skin. To overcome this obstacle, I had to muster the courage to try self-application, despite feeling daunted by the potential risks involved. It was a big step, but I was determined to give it a try.

Self-Care is Key

Equipped with insights from my doctor’s guidance and the wealth of information available through Platinum Skincare’s Peel University, I took a brave step into the realm of at-home chemical peels. 

The educational materials provided by Platinum Skincare were like a guiding light. They broke down each step of the process in a way that makes it all seem less daunting. 

I soaked up so many useful tips that were completely new to me, and one surprising discovery was that dermatology clinics across the country actually order their peels from Jen too! That realization gave me even more confidence, knowing that we were using the same trusted product.

Peel University

I’ll be upfront with you, Peel University was a game-changer for me. The tutorials and step-by-step guidance it offered were absolutely crucial. 

It felt like having a wise mentor by my side, not just giving me instructions, but also offering the reassurance I needed to take this journey on my own. It made all the difference in giving me the confidence to go ahead and try it out independently.

Self-Doubt and Caution

Even with all the helpful information I had gathered, I still found myself grappling with self-doubt along the way. 

The fear of accidentally harming my skin was always looming over me, tempting me to just go back to the safety of professional treatments, despite their high cost. It was a constant battle to trust in my own abilities and keep moving forward on this journey.

Community and Expert Advice

I decided to reach out to Jen and bombard her with questions. I wanted to be absolutely sure about everything before I shared any information with my fabulous women and community. 

After all, if you don’t do it right, there can be serious consequences. So, I figured it was better to be safe than sorry. So, I asked Jen every question that popped into my head.

A Successful Self-Application

The first time I tried it on my own, it was like staring into the abyss of all my fears. But, I took a deep breath and followed every single step meticulously. 

And you know what? It actually worked, and it felt like a rebirth, like I had taken control and could now confidently do my own peels at home, and do them well. It was a moment of real success for me.

This is how my skin appeared on Day 5.

Seeing the Results

The transformation was undeniable. My skin not only recovered but started to thrive, showing results that mirrored those of professional treatments. Seeing these improvements gave my confidence a serious boost.

Here are some remarkable skin rejuvenation results from the Platinum Skincare TCA Peel that have impressed me:

I hope that by documenting my TCA peel journey and giving advice on how to use at-home peels safely and effectively, I can help other fabulous women who may be having the same skin problems.

My experience with Platinum Skincare has been a game-changer, not just for my skin but for how I approach self-care altogether.
