After trying out the glycolic peel (which made my skin very oily), my esthetician switched me to a salicylic peel. I will be getting them every two weeks-- my 2nd appointment is in six days.
My esthetician started me off with a lower-percentage solution and will work her way up after each additional appointment. She applied the solution and let it sit for a few minutes (until the tingling has stopped). There was no pain involved. Unlike other peels, washing the solution off was not irritating/painful. My skin was instantly soft and looked better as the day went on. By the next day, it looked smooth and had a nice texture-- it kinda looked like a real-life photoshop procedure LOL. I also had a cystic pimple on my chin that reduced in size and redness the day after my appointment.
I cannot wait for my next appointment!!!!!! I am 20 and take good care of my skin. I only suffer the occasional breakout during that time of the month or if I had slept in makeup (hey, it happens ...). I always had used a daily exfoliant, but my skin always had a certain roughness to it. I used to get facials every month which helped, but it has nothing on the results I've experienced with peels. It's a very quick and easy procedure that will even out the color and texture of your skin.
