I had my peel in March 2010 and my skin was horrible before, no acne present but lots of acne scarring, dark spots from previous acne and I would not go out to the mailbox without foundation or allow my husband to see me without it, I even slept with it because I was ashamed of anyone seeing me - I am a beautiful woman but those scars actually made me look like I was ugly.
Days after I had my peel and my skin actually started peeling, I could go without makeup - it was so liberating. Go to my page on Facebook - Maria Smith (Marvelous Maria) and check me out. I'm going to get another one real soon. I don't understand these posts about the peels not being worth it, nothing these days costs what it's really worth anyway but I wonder if they would be saying the same thing if it was $50 - they would probably say it was fantastic then. Bottom line is that most people want something but don't want to pay for it. You skin is the first thing that people see when they see you so I think that improving it is worth it whatever the cost. But as with everything else, everything is not for everyone. Good luck.
