After seeing the results on a friend of mine who used Cosmelan through a doctor (and being amazed at her beautiful skin) I decided to try doing it myself. She had spent $600, and I found the products online for just $340. It's been less than a week, and I've had LOTS of peeling, redness, and even scabby looking areas where it peeled deeply several times, but I'm SO excited to see what my skin looks like in a couple more weeks! I know it's going to be worth it.
I would say it can be painful too, as some others have stated. I've even had cracks around the corners of my mouth. It was almost impossible to smile the first few days because my skin was so tight. But, it's all in the name of beauty!
