Wanted to target fine lines, acne scarring, blemishes, sun spots, and overall tone of skin. Longer than expected downtime. Thought I could go back to work on day 3... Not!
Day 1---Swelling and tightness, a little pink. Stays this way for days 2 and 3 --but way worse. A lot of swelling around eyes makes u look like you've been beaten. No bruises though. Brown pigmented dots start to form and rise to top on day 3. Uglyyyyy. Tight and cracking. Puss bumps and some bleeding on areas hit the hardest like around corners of mouth. Don't have any plans for a week. Seriously!
Day 4---worst day because your skin is wanting to slough off but it's not ready. If u rush it, u will bleed and scab. On the 4th night I was able to put my face under sink with soap and cold water and gently exfoliate a lot of the brown dots with my fingers. Be careful though.
5th day better but swollen still. That's where I am at the moment. Hoping to have fully exfoliated face by tonight.
