I inquired about the necessity of anesthesia upon having the peel. Most of my answers were from doctors who do not believe it is necessary. All I can say is that my doctor is very wise. Yes, he had me sedated. Yes, it would have been a nightmare otherwise. And yes, it was all worth it.
I now have much more time before even considering any cosmetic surgery for all the fine lines, wrinkles, blemishes, etc.
