Think Carefully About Your Next Chemical Peel! - South Africa, ZA

OMW! this has got to be one of the most unexpected things that has happened to me...especially after the reason one does does a chemical peel is for your skin to look rejuvenated and clear of all unsightly marks. After my peel, my face is so badly hyperpigmented that I am becoming self concsious and depressed. I wish I did not have to go out in public. It is now 20 days since my chemical peel was done. I was not prone to wearing a foundation in the past but now I feel I cannot face the public without a thick layer of make-up.The dark patches are mostly around my cheekbones and chin area. The cream I am using is to lighten the marks and I am supposed to wait for 8 more days to see real results of this cream.What else can I do but wait.If anybody out there has had a similar experience , please let me know or better still..a cure

Oh my gosh, I'm so sorry to hear what has happened. :( Do you mind me asking if you did the peel yourself or if you had it done somewhere? Also, do you know what kind of peel it was?

I had a salicylic peel at a registered beauty salon. Thankfully there is now some slight improvement on the scarring getting lighter. I think in my case, all i need to have is patience and faith that it will come right....best remedy for sure :)
