Shedding the Snake: Peeling to Remove Discoloration

Any updates, vkn1?

From what I had gathered and tried, mild superficial exfoliation or light peeling wouldn’t get down deep enough to clear out the crud.

If it is bruising you are not going to get rid of it by exfoliation.have you ever exfoliated a bruise on your arm away?? Discoloration on your stratum corneum(outermost layer of your skin) could be exfoliated. Acetylsalicylic acid(aspirin) rubbed on your junk could maybe reduce bruising but taking aspirin can also reduce bruising, also I would be careful rubbing any medication on my genitals parce que absorption will be greater.

I haven’t gotten the weaker Tretinoin that I would like to use for routine maintenance. And the last couple weeks I have been really busy with other things while also needing to not be peeling due to girls seeing my wang and it being important that they not be freaked out. So I don’t have much new to report yet. My dick absolutely definitely looks nicer than before. It has a more youthful appearance and more even skin tone. It’s also softer. To summarize my experience thus far, I used this really high dose of the stuff twice a day for about a week and then suddenly I got a huge amount of peeling that was more than I wanted and had me itchy and irritated. I could see that the skin that was coming off had substantial amount of either general natural pigmentation or discoloration because it was dark colored. But anyway, I then didn’t touch the Tretinoin for about a week. Then I did a much less frequent dosing of it for about another week and again got a peel but this time no irritation or anything — what I’d been shooting for all along. Since then, I’ve used the Tretinoin just kinda randomly for healthiness-of-appearance benefits without peel in order for girls not to see a shedding snake but rather something they are attracted to and want to have sex with.

Basically, I think the Tretinoin is the dog’s bollocks. But I’d like to hear what other people think. Just order some off of Google Shopping or whatever. That’s where I found mine. I’m not seeing the particular place I ordered from anymore, but I think I paid about $20 a tube for tubes that will last for months each. A little goes a long ways. The tubes are small but will last for months.

I still have some deep down navy blue stuff that’s barely visible but that I would like to get rid of with either a longer-term treatment of Tretinoin or something like a Jessner’s or TCA peel if the Tretinoin doesn’t do it. However, my two quick little week-long rounds of Tretinoin have basically delighted me so much with how much they improved the appearance of my wang, that I’ve temporarily lost the motivation to bother with going for anything more right now.

Has anyone tried benzoyl peroxide on their dick?

Start: 5.75 inch BPEL 4.75 inch girth BSEG (Nov 1 2007)

Current: 7.4 inch BPEL 5.4 inch MSEG 5.75 inch BSEG (Oct 24 2009)

Goal: 7 inch NBPEL 5.5 inch EG=> New Goal: 7.75 inch BPEL 5.75 MSEG

I am dreading having to do this. I think I might take the Big Girtha route and just discolor the rest of my body. Seems easier.

I have a question, 3 days ago I did the burn only left it there for 4 min. 3 days latter it hasn’t started to peel, it just looks darker and it seems that it might start to peel but I am not sure. My question is: should I wait to see if it peels? And if so, how long should I wait? Or should I just do another burn in top risking overdoing it?

Wait. You burn, the skin turns dark, then peels. Be patient. Give it at least a week. See how the burn you did works out, then go from there.

Hobby, did you ever make a little guide or cliff notes for the best way to do this? Sorry if this was already covered earlier in the thread but it’s a long thread to read all of it. Thanks!

I haven’t. I’ve argued against creating a short howto in the past, instead advising to read through this whole thread before considering taking this on. Now the thread is 40+ pages long and not easy to read through or gather some of the points and warnings I wanted to convey. Hmm.

Anyone experienced hydrochinone cream?

The first time that I did a burn was 5 months ago , and after leaving the compound W for over 7 minutes 3 days later it was pealing. This time I did an initial burn 5 minutes
And it just made the area darker 4 days later I thought it was not going to peal , so I did another burn , this time over the dark area and the rest of the penis. (When I applied the compound W to the dark area it did not burn, it started behaving the same way- turned white then a coat was left, but it did not burn, the other are of the penis did burn)

Day 3 the dark area got even darker and the rest of the penis is a little darker. It is weird because it is not working how it worked 5 months ago. This time it’s behaving more
Like a sun burn, I can see that the darker area is kinda like old skin but it did not do the red bruising that was normal 5 months ago, I don’t know how long it would take to peel
It seems like every days is getting there little by little , but it’s not consistent with the way it worked 5 months ago, is there any reason for this>?
And should I just wait it out>?

I’ve done 2 burns now my dick is almost back to it’s nice pink self. I will do at least another burn to get it all the way back as there is still abit of discoloration, but not near what it was.

It started peeling, thanks anyways

In addition to being an inhibitor of tyrosinase, kojic acid is also a chelator of metal ions. Kojic acid’s chelating ability is well-documented, but here is one source:…20SL%20SPEC.pdf

Kojic acid belongs to a group of substances known as 3-hydroxy-4-pyrones. Inasmuch, it has all the properties to, in theory, be perfect for our goal of removing hemosiderin. This page documents it’s conclusion that 3-hydroxy-4-pyrones make the best candidates as SUHRs (an acronym created by the article author to mean “Selective Undereye Hemosiderin Remover”):…86&DISPLAY=DESC

Furthermore, this study reinforces the theory of 3-hydroxy-4-pyrones being ideal hemosiderin chelators:

In short, although kojic acid’s depigmenting profile could indicate that, if successful in removing PE-induced discoloration, the aesthetic condition could be due to an excess of melanin, I believe hemosiderin is still far and away the more likely cause. In fact, I’d go so far as to declare absolutely (in my opinion) that hemosiderin is the cause of PE-induced discoloration.

Also, your assertion that the hyperpigmentation may be due to dermal melasma isn’t exactly accurate; my feeling, though, is that you intended to cite another disorder. If melanin overproduction had anything to do with PE-induced discoloration, it’d likely be due to post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation, such as that seen in those afflicted by rosacea, inflammatory acne (nodules, pustules, cysts, etc.), or UV damage. I say ‘if,’ though, because in the case of post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (from this point forward referred to as PIH) taking upon a tan/brownish appearance it is that of the epidermal variety. Such PIH is very simple to treat, never lasting longer than three months (all the time necessary for all epidermal layers to shed themselves) and often far less as the afflicted typically takes measures to rid of it. Simple exfoliation with a soft cloth could reduce the PIH to a mere month of existence, and hydroquinone could eliminate it in days, if not hours (if of a high enough concentration). Dermal PIH, though, is far more difficult to treat, likening it’s recalcitrance to that of our epithelial hemosiderosis. It’s appearance is grey/black, and can be identified as dermal instead of epidermal by a wood’s lamp examination.

Now, could PIH of the dermal variety perhaps combine with dermal hemosiderin deposition in the course of one acquiring PE-induced discoloration? Certainly. If recollection serves me, I believe ModestoMan’s former discoloration on the ventral (bottom) side—as depicted in his chemical peeling thread in the Member Pics forum—was nearly black. While that could have been attributed to a very high accumulation of hemosiderin in a confined space (given he was flaccid and his skin was bunched together), it may have been so dark because it was dermal PIH instead of hemosiderin. He was successful in removing it not due to chemical compounding and elimination (such as that seen in chelation) or chemical inhibition and reduction (such as that seen in depigmentation), but due to complete chemical destruction (“Everything must go!”). Thus, we cannot infer what the culprit of PE-induced discoloration is by virtue of his method’s unspecific mode of action. What is sure, though, is that it works, and is still the most highly evidenced effective means of ridding of this damned effect!

Technically, that the 20% salicylic acid was successful is indicative only of the fact the epithelelial destruction was sufficient to penetrate to the site of discoloration. That a 20% peel of that compound could reach the dermis with a lengthy application is indeed very possible, and is likely why an 18-20% salicylic acid peel is successful in riding of hemosiderin deposited in the papillary dermis (theorized to be the site of hemosiderin deposition after capillary hemorrhaging).

The other thing is that I’ve always used thioglycolic (veet cream) to get rid of hair in that area with no impact on my skin colouration

Regarding my certainty as to whether or not thiglycolic acid had an effect on my discoloration, I believe I indicated in my thioglycolic acid thread that my certainty was to be approximated at 95%. For your reference:

I hedged my opinion only because I couldn’t dismiss the possibility my subjective appraisal of my discoloration’s lessened severity could have been due to my body’s in vivo healing mechanisms instead of the thioglycolic acid’s assistance. Nevertheless, given that possibility only comprised 5%, I am still relatively certain TGA assisted in some improvement of my discoloration due to gradual hemosideric chelation. As to my results not sounding coherent, I’m not certain how to interpret that; were my words really that cryptic? :)

In any event, that you seemed to experience success with 50% glycolic acid peels in combination with kojic acid is good to hear. That the results of a chemical peel resulted in far more evident and immediate improvement is not hard to believe. I’m not certain how many times you used Veet, how long you applied the cream/gel, or if you washed your skin prior to application—amongst many other things—, but the improvement from TGA is, understandably, far more gradual than an invasive chemical peel. That should not read as a disparagement; if I had not discovered any other means of ridding hemosiderin I’d be exploring the world of TCA peels. I’m posting because my interest in removing discoloration has piqued a bit recently, and kojic acid was the compound I’m most interested to test. EDTA is a safe and effective iron chelator but has very sketchy epithelial permeability properties. Kojic acid, in addition to the other 3-hydroxy-4-pyrones, are the stars of the show as far as I’m concerned. Although thioglycolic acid is a proven chelator and, in my experience, was effective in chelating hemosiderin with diligent, repeated applications, it’s epithelial permeability did not seem to be ideal. In addition, I have no idea the specificity with which TGA targets iron ions in lieu of zinc, copper, or how many other minerals that may be present in penile skin, amongst a dozen other unknown variables. Basically, TGA did well introducing me to the concept of chelation; there are far better candidates for the job, though.

I’ll update the TGA thread with any progress (or lack thereof) made in my endeavors.

Hi all guys,

I has been out from this forum for about 5 years due a password lost, anyway thanks to admin I has been able to recover my password.

Back in 2005 I has been one of the first to try chemical peel My discoloration solution experiment detailed w pictures

A lot of you for sure will not remember my story (I’ve had severe hematoma with high discoloration). After five years I have improved the color of the skin, but is still not 100% done.

Anyway from now I will continue following this topic, and I will try to read the whole topic to see what of you guys are using right now.

Just for the records, in these years I haven’t found one dermatologist that agreed to peel/laser my penis!
