Skinmedica Rejuvenize Peel

I got a peel today for the first time. It was a 10% salicylic and lactic acid peel. I got it to try to fade some sun damage, melasma and acne scars that have accumulated with time. Jo at Dr Hirsch's office treated me. Can't give a full in depth review yet as I haven't completely seen results... READ MORE

Bellederm Salicylic Acid Peel - Washington, DC

I had a vi peel which made my acne worse and I developed deep pimples in areas I didn't even have pimples before. So I opted to try Bellederm brand facial peels. Very pleased so far! Came with more steps than the aggressive vi peel. It didn't hurt, just felt good! That's gotta say something! I... READ MORE

Works but I Would Buy the Product Online and Do It Myself To Save Money. Cincinnati, OH

I bought 5 salicylic peels at a dermatologists office, and I have done 4 in about a six week period. 20-30% strength. I would just go on Amazon and buy some of the solution and do it myself if I could go back. It's pretty easy to do and the solution costs $30 for 30% strength. My acne is... READ MORE

Works with Patience and Gradual Not over Use

Started with 10% to get skin used to peel twice a week then moved into 20% after 6 sessions twice a week or once if skin was still peeling. Kept skin moisturised as it gets dry. Broke out at first which is good it's decongesting the skin then I noticed no new scarring appeared from new... READ MORE

30% Salicylic Skin Peel Diary.

I purchased a 30% salicylic acid peel on eBay - I know, it's bad. But with 100% positive feedback, some pretty awesome reviews, and my lack of expendable income, I decided to go ahead and buy it anyways. I have some pretty terrible adolescent acne - not awful - but worse than anyone I've... READ MORE

Salicylic Acid Peel

I had a mild salicylic acid peel at a cosmetic clinic in my city. It definitely smoothed out most of my skin and immediately reduced the size of any active zits on my face. I am 4 days post-peel right now and only experienced light flaking that is already almost over now. I'm suddenly kind of... READ MORE

Better Experience

I recommend getting a Sensi Peel from Toronto Cosmetic Clinic. I got it done and the results are fabulous.

44 and Just Now Trying Chemical Peels - San Mateo, CA

I have always shied away from anything 'peel' related because I have such sensitive skin. For my first peel I went to a 5 star skin care place, so I was sure to have the best advice and treatment. She put me on the salicylic acid peel because of light wrinkles, oiliness in the T zone and an... READ MORE

I'm 30 years old, and I started getting pimples in elementary school. I've tried it all people, but nothing seemed to work.
