My primary doctor (at the time) was doing laser and derm practices. He had advertised medical grade chemical peels. I called the office and went in for a patch test.

So, I have tried it 3 times in 3 months and this 3rd time, my skin feels like it... READ MORE

Lots of acne around chin area, sides of face. some cystic. Some red scars/ skin blotchiness.The chemical peel and laser is going good so far (2 peels, 1 laser). But I doubt it is a "cure". Its probably temporary unfortunately.Con, too expensive and I don't want to be sucked into a... READ MORE

It feels like your face is on fire. but the acid is only left on for 15 minutes-ish. So its not too hard to deal with.

I have had four chemical peels in the last few months, with virtually no peeling or any sort of benefit, and I'm confused as to how this could be the case. The first three peels I had were light Jessner solutions (done with the intention that I'd be able to be back at work in a few days). The... READ MORE

Medium depth peel was done to remove a small lentigo (skin discolration) on my upper lip. The result is a large darkened area where the peel was done which is much more noticeable than the lentigo that was supposed to be removed by the procedure.The Dr. could have chosen a different method to...
