Obagi Blue Peel for Brown Spots--Ended Up with Large Pores + More Wrinkles - Jupiter, FL

I was looking for something to improve my sun damaged skin and get rid of brown spots. I've heard a lot about Obagi and their Blue Peels over the years, so decided to ask my plastic surgeon about it. I did not do any prep (such as using Nu Derm ahead of time.) My ps decided on 4 layers. It was incredibly painful but I had a fan within inches of my face. It took a really long time for me to...

Did you read my review? I guess it depends on what the reason is for getting the peel. I wanted it mainly for the brown spots on my face, but while some of the lighter ones are gone, the majority look pretty much the same as before and... READ COMMENT
