It looks great! I'm anxious to hear how the process was. I am really, really considering taking mine out now, but my chin is much more recessed so am still afraid. Hope your healing goes smoothly. Keep us posted! READ COMMENT

Thanks for your comment! You motivated me to post my pics but I don't know what strength my peel was. I think it was fairly strong since you can see how wrinkled I was at 5 days. I really can't advise you about a peel, as some have had... READ COMMENT
