Question:

Hi,
i live in toronto, canada and would like to perform TCA cross at home. Must the acid be neutralized once applied to the skin?

Answer:

This is a really dangerous procedure to perform at home . I would strongly advise you against doing this. It only takes the slightest amount of misjudgement, and permanent and severe scarring can occur.

Don’t do it!
