In Topic: Trademark Chemical Peel Damage

Well, it's been 15 days and my skin is still looking leathery/waxy/shiny. The redness is now in 2 particular patches but my skin looks paper-thin at the mo. Very distressing.

I wouldn't be able to comment on IPL experience, but I know chemical peels are more of a gradual thing. Do what you feel is best, there are risks associated with both, but there are also great rewards associated with each of them.

Well done mate, I'm really pleased for you. The whole system here in the UK is atrocious. Not only does the mere mention of a dermatologist stick you on a 3 month waiting list (conservative estimate), but most of them are unhelpful at best, at worst ignorant to important issues that theoretically (since... I don't know... they're supposedly fully qualified medical professionals in this particular field?!) they should know inside-out and completely understand.


It's no secret that dermatologists are seldom seen as being as important as other specialists in the NHS. It seems that if they're any good, they'd be charging for it.


Anyway, congrats on managing to get this treatment on the NHS. This gives me an idea for when I'm rid of my own red marks.

Just an update- yesterday I had some major peeling skin around the mouth and cheekbones, but the redness was a lot less noticeable than it had been all last week. However this morning I got up and the redness had disappeared again, but no peeling today? My skin now feels "hard" and like it's lost all it's sensitivity to the touch, scaly. That slight redness from yesterday is back now 2 hours after waking up. It's less pronounced than it was, but I'd like to know why it isn't there after waking yet it seems to linger all day an hour later.


From the touch and feel of my skin, I'd say it is shedding at last from the peel which is now 12 days old. As somebody above me already suggested it might be. But if it is, it's taking it's time about it  eusa_think.gif

It looks leathery, but I performed my last peel about 10 days ago so I'm not sure if it would be that. I'd love to be wrong, and I have held off posting on here until I felt sure something was wrong. It's the colour-flush really that puts me off thinking that. As if my skin has a constant inflammatory response.
