I went for a consult to see if this was a good option for my hyperpigmentation and decided to go for it. The results we HORRIBLE! It did somewhat lighten the hyperpigmentation I had on the side of my face; however, NEW DARKER HYPERPIGMENTATION APPEARED ON THE FRONT OF MY FACE which I was NEVER told could be a possibility!!!! I NEVER would have taken such a chance if I knew there was even a slight chance this could happen. If you're doing this for hyperpigmentation - DON'T!!!!!!

Karrie, It sounds like the strength was too much and too many layers for your first time.I also have had blue peels for mild acne scars and the results have been great. The first peel they only used two layers at 15% and each time I got one they increased the layers and strength slightly. This is my fourth one and they used 3 layers and 20%. I noticed a difference in my skin with the first peel, but each time it gets better. Hopefully, overtime your skin will heal. With the third peel there was a little crusting like it had been burned slightly in areas and it healed just fine. Hope this information helps some.

I read on this site that, God forbid I say it, another peel will fix this. Basically what Look on this site in the Q&A section for hyper pigmentation due to chemical peels. I know it sounds crazy but I would definitely see a different doc and go from there. Chem peels do work. Sorry abo your experience. You will heal and look better.
