I have lots of hyper-pigmentation and blemishes and always was curious how these peels work but just never had enough $. I saw an ad for a $99 (reg. $149) glycolic peel special at a local medspa w/ a micro and thought I'd try it out. I have very sensitive skin so it did sting a bit. Not... READ MORE

About a month ago, i decided to give myself an at home glycolic peel 30%. i thought it would be a good idea to do, (and yes i researched) to remove the top dead layer of my skin (to "brighten" it up). omg!!! that was the worst mistake i ever did to myself! apparently, i got some... READ MORE

Hello. Last night I performed my first chemical peel, an at-home 50% glycolic peel. I followed instructions and left it on my skin for approximately 1 minute. The next day my skin has shown no reaction at all. Haven't seen results yet but I think it will perform well when I determine... READ MORE

I had a 30% glycolic peel (3 passes) done by an RN. 48 hours after the peel my faced became very swollen and the skin turned a yellowish (pus looking) and began to ooze. The swelling is gone and most of the yellowish pus looking area has gone but now I see a somewhat wavy, bumpy reddish... READ MORE

I did the glycolic peel because I had blemishes due to minor acne. It got rid of that but caused another issue that I can't get rid off which is some dark spots on my face.What treatment will get rid of dark spots due to a peel gone wrong? READ MORE

I love this peel! No down time. You begin peeling after 3 days and it is easily controlled with moisturizer. The effect is wonderful. Smooth clear skin, diminished lines, faded freckles, smaller pores. READ MORE

I get them once every month or two. Vitalize peel I believe is a combination of different acids.  Very quick, just a little stinging.  Around 3 days later face looks chapped and flakes a bit but not too bad.  Once you finish peeling your skin looks more radiant.  Also... READ MORE

Glycolic peels really leave my very freckeled skin looking fresh and younger, I also have very olive hispanic skin and use a med to high professional concentrate (kimshort ) left a message about how much she loved her at home peels but did not reveal which she uses. pleasr share your brand with...

I got an Aha peel done recently and i am very glad with the results. It is not as strong as a phenol peel, is sublime and mild, but it gives great results. It is perfect for slightly damaged skin. There is no need to get a phenol ( which is too strong), if your skin needs moderate treatment. Aha... READ MORE

I had a facial at the Canyon Ranch spa in Vegas, first facial ever. I think i was 27, lol. This one came with the AHA and i dont recall any discomfort. However I do recal it taking away two very noticable dark areas on my forehead from sun burn damage growing up. Totally erased them! READ MORE

(I can't remember the exact cost) I have very normal skin for a 33 year old. I had this done just to see what it is like and I absolutely loved it. The derm used a 70% solution on my face and I had almost no redness and absolutely no peeling. My skin never felt so soft! I definitely... READ MORE

I just did my 3rd of 6 glycolic peels last week. At first I was very scared as I didn't want it to burn my face off or anything but everything went well. The % started out low and already I have worked up to 50%. I don't know how much higher I will go but I think the max my dr. will go will... READ MORE

I am 44, skin is actually not bad considering years of summers at the beach in the pre-sunscreen years. I am light/medium skin toned and have slightly sensitive skin. I had a series of 5 glycolic peels at 45% strength at a salon, gradually working up to 10 minutes of keeping the glycolic on my... READ MORE

Is something that you should get twice at month, it helps to reduce the fine lines , your botox , radiesse or any treatment last longer , and if you use Glycolic products even better, you must use all this together in order to have 100% satisfaction guaranted, the cost of the peels are 100 per...

I have had a series of peels of various kinds, and every one of them produces a result. The net effect is that I am always told I look ten years younger than I am, or that my skin looks great. The glycolic peels get stronger and stronger, and I got up to where I was pretty much at top... READ MORE

I got my glycolic peel done at a salon. It was a bit uncomfortable, but since it was so strong, it was taken off rather quickly. I got it done 2 days ago and my face is already clearing up. My pores are cleaned out and my skin just looks clearer. I still have a few pimples, but the... READ MORE
