My Chemical Peel - Super Tight Skin, I Can't Even Eat Properly - India, IN

Hi all, so here it comes, i am getting married in...

Hi all, so here it comes, i am getting married in November, i was wondering what to do about my skin, i have pigmentation on my skin, acne scars, tanning, open pores so my dermatologist suggested me to go for a very mild peel, so here i took my plunge, initially i peeled and every thing.. but whats concerning me is at day 9th which is today... my skin is so tight and it really hurts whenever i apply the moisturizer prescribed by my doctor ie Seba med visio, active hydro gel with 5.5 ph however in 5 minutes it becomes normal.. is there some one who can suggest me when i will be able to get rid my self off from this super tight skin and burning sensation..please please help.. i am really worried now


I happened to see this a bit late I use salicylic acid peel 30%b it is not only the mildest but the most effective peel in Indian Skin I am sure it must have improved The simple rule is that either we waste our patients money getting mild peels done or give the right concentration at the first time I believe that the patients money is more important than our ease of doing a mild peel that does nothing Dr Sardana

Im really sorry to hear that. It sounds like the peel was too strong for you and instead of a mild peel he should have used a very light peel, one for sensitive skin. When I got my second peel, my doctor made it a little bit stronger than my first peel and my face felt like it was getting warmer through out the day and small areas on my face was tight. I used a moistuizer from Clinique called Moisture Surge Intense. This is for very dry skin. Your face is tight because its either very dry from the peel or burnt. This is a intense moisturizer and might help. Ive used this product for years and ive never had a problem with it.

Thank you for posting your review.  That sounds understanding is that it can take a month for total healing and repair.  

Have you taken a look in the Doctor Q&A's?
