    I have been doing a series of peels and micro derm. I have had two so far. She gives me a facial, puts the glycolic peel on, and then microderm. Oh - and then this light therapy thing. It's only been $75 a treatment....but well worth it. I can tell not only are some of my darker spots lightening, but my skin is smoother, pores are smaller...and dare I say...some of my fine lines are gone?!!!!!! If you are thinking about it I would go with a glycolic first.

        I have been getting chemical peels for about a year and let me tell you, the first few my face definitely PEELED!!! I always schedule mine for a Wed. because by Fri/Sat my face is falling off....I know that sounds unsightly, but the glow that you have afterwards, is SO worth it.

        I don't know much about microdermabrasion....It is something that I'd like to have though....I am doing these because I have red marks/scars on my face from old acne.

          I've been getting chemical peels every month for over a year now. I usually get them on Friday and by Sunday my skin looks fine, it's still peeling a little, but it just looks like you have very dry skin. If you get one two weeks before your wedding, your skin will look amazing on your wedding day.

            LOL!!! I mentioned this exactly to my esthitician right before my first peel :)

            I have gotten 2 chemical peels so far, one a month since the beginning of this year and will continue until April. Then I was recommended to get an oxygen facial that is supposed to make you skin glowy and gorgeous.

            I can't say enough about chemical peels, my skin looks amazing and I haven't been breaking out really at all. I get them on Sunday and by Monday my face is fine, no redness. I peel very slightly, nothing bad but it's different for everyone I guess.

              It's comforting to hear that many have had good experiences, but unnerving to know that it affects everyone so differently! I don't know what to think!
