TCA makes the top layers of skin cells dry up and be peeled off over a period of one to two weeks. The skin turnover rate is significantly promoted by TCA. After the old skin is peeled off, a new layer of undamaged skin is exposed. It has smoother texture and lighter and more even color. I Max 45% Trichloroacetic Acid Serum-Deep Chemical Peel is a high concentrate facial serum for tightening, lifting, wrinkle reducing, antiaging, fading dark spots (it has to be diluted 2-4 times) and treating skin abnormalities, such as skin tags, moles, or warts (dilution is not necessary). Unlike other chemical peel products, this serum is formulated very uniquely with effective actives for nurturing, soothing, healing and hydrating like Vitamin Bs, Beta glucan and Organic Botanical extracts.
TCA peel is usually used to 1. Reduce fine lines. 2. Fade dark and brown spots. 3. Improve skin texture. 4. Lift loose face and neck. 5. Glow face. It obviously brings us great results of the skin beauty and rejuvenation.
*A temporary painful, tingling or burning sensation has been often noted upon initial contact as well as heightened skin sensitivity, redness and peeling. These are very normal and will be disappeared soon but those with extra-sensitive or allergic skin should do a patch test on a small and less visible area first to determine if their skin may tolerate this serum.
*Never use manual exfoliators nor scrubbing brushes within 24 hours of using this serum. Never use this serum on the open or inflamed skin.
Patch Test: If you are the 1st time user of AHA or your skin is allergic or oversensitive to AHA, you must use this serum after doing a patch test and waiting for 24-72 hours for result only to see if your skin can tolerate AHA. This serum is well known as #1 safe chemical peel which enhances new skin cell turnover and dissolves the uppermost layer of the epidermis resulting fresh, smooth and light skin. You may have to dilute high concentrate of the serums of 45%.
For the normal skin’s beauty and health, dilute 2 to 4 times. Wash your face thoroughly with cleanser and apply the diluted serum evenly with cotton pads or fan brush. After 15 minutes, wash out and towel dry. After you pass a patch test, start applying the serum once or twice a week and observe your skin condition. Increase usage up to 3 to 4 times a week for a month. Stop or decrease usage if your skin becomes satisfying, too thin or sensitive.
User assumes all risk of damage or injury to the skin. Keep out of the eyes, nose and mouth. Before you use, perform a patch test to see if your skin can tolerate.

Well for the first time ever, I have lost all my pictures. I took pictures of myself before, during use and after and they are all gone. I cannot find them on my computer, nor on my phone. Unfortunately folks you will have to just take my word for it this time. I will try to update this later and take more progression type pictures.
This iMax serum comes in a pretty blue bottle with a screw on lid and the top is tapered to only let out a drop at a time for better control. This is a 1 fl oz 30ml bottle.
I have never used TCA so I did as they recommended and completed the patch test over the first few days. I also wanted to start with a diluted form of the TCA to try first. I did not see a good explanation on how exactly to weaken this concentrate to the recommended concentration of 22% or 11%, so I emailed the company and they were pretty quick and very accurate with their reply to me. They told me to use
After the patch test and I was ready to really start applying this serum, I would start by washing my face thoroughly. I used cotton balls to soak up and apply the diluted serum to my face and neck. I would wait 10 minutes and then wash it off. After it was washed off my face I followed up with the recommended iMax plant stem cell cream. I do experience a burning/tingling/itchy feeling every time I use this serum, even at the diluted 11% concentration level. It isn’t a problem and hasn’t even left my skin red or irritated so I just fan my face while I wait for it to dry and the 10 minutes to pass so I can then moisturize my face.
When you first start out using this serum they recommend wearing it for 3-4 minutes, once or twice a week and monitoring your skins reaction to it. If there aren’t any negative reactions you can then increase the application to 10 minutes, as you see fit. At the 10 minute duration you back down to applying this once or twice a month. Also stop using this product immediately if you feel that your skin is too thin, sensitive, or you feel any pain or discomfort. Watch how your skin reacts and change your application duration and frequency accordingly.

My face peeled a lot after about a week and a half and then it started to look amazing. I haven’t had any adult acne since I began using this product. I have also noticed the disappearance of some fine lines around my eyes, my skin is tighter and so smooth. Oh, my pores on my nose have also shrunk. I REALLY wish I had the before and after pictures to really compare the results.
