After chatting with my dermatologist and doing some research, my answer was yes – for a few reasons.
I’ve talked about this before, but in the past year, I’ve started to notice some changes in my skin – and they aren’t for-the-better changes. The fine lines were more evident… my freckles seemed to be giving way to a splotchiness I don’t appreciate and the tone was dull.
So I decided to try a facial Chemical Peel – with the hope that some of the things I didn’t love about my skin would diminish. I did it heading into a weekend – having been warned that I would appear sunburned afterwards and that my skin would peel…. Here is my journey.
After my skin had ‘recovered’ from the peel, I was delighted. My skin was brighter, noticeably softer and tighter. My pores were smaller and there was a slight reduction in my fine lines. My dermatologist recommends doing them in a series of three or five – and during the cooler months when you are exposed to less sun.
Let me know if you do one (or if you have – what you thought of the results)!
