I had the glasses problem too, my doctor told me to put a folded tissue or some soft fabric under the bridge of the glasses so they didn't dig into my face. Seemed to work and I could wear contacts after 10 days. READ COMMENT

Totally agree with your review - I had a phenol peel 7 weeks ago and am still very, very red. I can't believe either that people are going out after two weeks and no-one notices! Still, it's an amazing treatment - my wrinkles have... READ COMMENT
