I had my dermatologist perform my peel. The actual peel (70% acid) came in powder form and was mixed into a bowl of water. She applied it to my face with just a piece of gauze and then let it sit for 4 minutes. It burned worse than I expected. I have a high pain tolerance and this made my eyes water. Then she took it off and rubbed aloe vera on my face. The process goes by quickly. I had it done yesterday and havent started peeling but am a little pink and my skin feels dry.
I can update this post on the results I get. The main reason I wrote this was to let everyone know that I DO NOT recommend doing any sort of peel at home. Your face is forever and is worth the money. DO YOUR RESEARCH and find a certified dermatologist with years of experience.
