I had a consulation with a nurse as I was concerned about forhead wrinkles and crows feet. I was recommended a 6 week course of micro-dermabrasion with glycolic facial peel.

I spent a couple of hours sitting in the sun in the garden a few weeks after my last micro-derm and glycolic peel. When I came in I had a large mottled brown patch of skin on both cheeks. I returned to the clinic I had the treatment who said it was hyper-pigmentation caused by the sun. I've googled micr-derm and realised that this can be a side effect. The clinic have sold me a furter 6 micro-derm and glycholic peel sessions to restore my skin colour. So far I've had 3 with little effect.
