Okay so it has been 4 full days since my at home peel with the 40% Glycolic acid. Now when I applied the acid initially it burned like hell!! (I had gotten a peel done about a week and a half before by an esthetician, however it didnt burn as much it was just a strong tingle then.) Even though... READ MORE

I really started to freak out before my appointment after seeing some results but as long as you follow the guidelines and seek a pro you should be fine. I decided that for me I would only move forward in a doctor's office. What I found out while I was there is that in the office they use... READ MORE

I had a peel at my dermatologist's ofc approximately 9 months ago. It was FANTASTIC. She went with a light (20%) one the first time, and I tolerated it really well. She said she would up the strength for subsequent visits. At $300 a pop, I put off the next visit... And the next. However, I... READ MORE

I am 23 years old and decided to get a glycolic peel for the first time few days ago. I went to a specialist and she said she will do a 30% peel on me. After the peel, I went home and my face was still burning, my right side of face is completely red and looks burned. Will it leave scars? I look... READ MORE

I try to get a peel when I have pms my acne wants to flare up. It does help but I hate the sloughing off period that starts 4 or 5 days after. The peel leave you shiny looking the first day and you try to leave it on at least 6 hrs before washing your face. Water will kind of re-activate it so... READ MORE

I developed severe acne after I turned 30. I struggled with it for almost 2 years and tried EVERYTHING over the counter. From the recommendation of fabulous esthetician, I went on a regiment of glycolic peels every 2 weeks for total of 6 treatments: starting at 40% and worked my way up to 75%.... READ MORE

I had a glycolic peel (40%) (3 passes then neutralized) by a nurse/esthetician. On the day of the peel I began taking Valtrex 500 mg twice a day. However, less than 48 hours later, my face become seriously swollen especially around the eye area. I followed up with a dermatologist who prescribed... READ MORE

Awesome ! A++++! Had "other" stuff done too- waiting for swelling to subside. If anything like the under eye peel results, I am going to be thrilled. Peel applied at end of surgery to area under eyes down to mid-cheek. Minimal post procedure care- just applied lotion several times daily.... READ MORE

I bought 70% unbuffered glycolic acid off of amazon. You use this AT YOUR OWN RISK!!! I was using 10% lotion from a trusted beauty brand on my face at night. I read it encourages collagen production and reduces wrinkles. Well why not stretch marks? Abdominal skin is no where near as... READ MORE

I had fairly good skin with areas of dryness (result of getting older) and a few marks caused by picking the odd pimple. I decided on a glycolic peel (the mildest one) to see if it would first help with lightening these scars as well as make my skin brighter. I've been warned around using too... READ MORE

Not worth it. I was getting these monthly for nearly a year. While it did improve the overall appearance of my skin, removed some freckles around my nose and cheeks from sun exposure, it did nothing for my melasma. On my last visit, I noticed an area that burned more significantly. I got a... READ MORE

I've always been a little hesitant about doing anything drastic to my face, however, in the past couple of years discoloration from sun damage has increasingly bothered me. I was recommended to Dr. Pearson by a friend who was receiving Dysport treatments. Dr. Pearson alleviated all of my... READ MORE

I had a series of glycolic skin peels combined with a V-Beam Laser treatment after. This totally rejuvenated my skin making it appear smooth and minimized the pores to give me a younger appearance with a more even skin tone. The result was so wonderful and the skin improved with each treatment.... READ MORE

I had suffered a severe face burn previous to previous year. i waited for the burn marks to go naturally and they did to some extend. But due to all that rough use of cosmetic, my skin was looking speckled and damaged. Skin tone was quite regrettable. Than i decided to for chemical peel from a... READ MORE

I have used 50% glycolic acid twice now on my face and have not noticed any peeling? why is this? it makes my look shiny and nice but no peeling and no reduction in wrinkles?

After seeing great results on both my sister and cousin, I decided to get a consultation for a glycolic peel from my dermotologist. Since the esthetician at my office performs the procedure, I would have had to schedule a seperate appointment with her. Surprisingly, my doctor actually squeezed... READ MORE

I have pretty nice skin for a 45-y.o. - no real issues, just some fine lines and a lack of fullness. I had been doing at-home fruit acid peels with great results and considering a heavier-duty commercial one to plump up a bit, reclaim my rosy glow, and get rid of some minor sun damage, when my...
