Day 2 Post Microderm Plus Micropeel

Okay so today is day one of recovery from micropeel and microdermabrasion, and if you were hoping for some amazing results as was I, they have yet to come. BUT, to be fair, nothing works over night, so I am not thowing in the towel just yet. What it looks like today: red raised marks( what it typically looks like if you pop a pimple) and alot of dark brownish red flat scab type of marks where the most severe acne is/was. my pores do look much smaller, but that exciting mega peel that she spoke of hasn't happened yet, not even one tiny flake. She said to wait a few days to start back on my normal topical routine so I will start that tomorrow. Tomorrow I have two yes two birthday parties to go to. One is at a house with pregnant women and new moms who I am guessing will not be dressed to the nines ( what does that expression mean anyway). The second is at a hibachi place(if anyone has a good excuse? I would welcome it!!!??) , I think I will skip it, too much public involved in that one, when my face looks like I am healing from getting to close to a blow torch( maybe not quite that bad) this will be the true test of my bare minerals make up if it can cover this up it can do anything.

Glamorized : My Experience With Microdermabrasion And Micropeel

Soooo today I went for a microdermabrasion(mda from now on) and a micropeel. This place was gorgous with waterfalls indoors , giant spacious rooms, chic chairs and leather couches, and one of those single cup coffee machines. So I made myself a single cup of tasty chai and sat down in my chic thousand dollar chair reading their booklet entitled" what we can do for you"..... . i was getting sucked in I just knew it.. The cost: 75$ express microdermabrasion, 0$ micropeel( usually 90$ but she gave it to me for free to try it as she wants me to get them once a month after this.) The procedures: During the mda she did something that felt like someone was sticking duct tape to your face and then quickly pulling it off. she then did extractions, I don't know if this is typical of a mda or not. an extraction is when someone professional pops pimples for you, and let me tell you this shit hurt. then we did the peel which was 30% salicylic acid. she braced me for what she thought would be painful but i didn't find it to be that bad. then she put soothing gel on and that was about it. before she did any of this she asked if I was going anywhere for the next few days because my face would peel pretty bad. I said no( a lie) and was actually very excited about my face peeling.She recommended I get the peel once a month, and at this point I was completely hypnotized and would have done anything she told me to(these places have this effect on me) but thankfully my pocketbook intervened before I snatched up the amazing package deal for 360$. so i left, with a bonus perscription for trention 1% cream that she suggested.( they had a nurse practitionar on site who just gave it to me-awesome). this really made my day, The verdict: so far i feel no pain and am seeing no peeling. what i do see is a super red and inflamed face from all the pimple popping.I am going to track the next few days to see if this is worth the money and pain.
