Do you have any pics? How red is you skin at 2 weeks. My daughter (18) is thinking about having dermabrasion over the christmas holidays, but she is scarred she will not be healed enough and will not want to go back to school so soon . She will have 15 days after derm to heal. How old are you?

Agoff my first four dermabrasions were done during Christmas holidays. By the end of two weeks she will be very red and probably peeling. She will most likely be able to apply makeup, but it will be apparent that something is going on with her skin.

Heidi: I would be very careful using La Mer products this close after a dermabrasion. I used the oil free version at one point and had a horrid skin reaction, apparently I'm allergic to the sea algae in the product. Have you looked at the product reviews on Makeup Alley? During these first few weeks I would suggest using a healing oil such as jojoba. It was one of the only things that gave me some relief during the last part of the healing phase.

I've never seen a good real review of Creme de La Mer. Au contraire, I've only heard bad thing about it...it should be called "de La Merde" smile.gif

I used creme de la mer once and was not impressed. Way too expensive, I think emu oil is better.

Hi animegirlie, i've had Exoderm done three weeks ago and my skin gets very dry and peels when i don't apply a heavy hydrating topical product, i have read that if you let your skin dry you can get texture problems, should i leave it dry and peel? Thank you

i think you should never let your skin dry out when it is still raw!! once it has healed and is still just pink then go on o using a lighter moisturiser and i found the best thing for peeling is to do compress with white vinegar and washcloth it will remove all the flakes very gently then apply tour moisturiser it worked for me and still is after my dermabrasion
