Essentially I have some strange pigmentation round my eyes and also a lot of red blotchy bits on my face due to spots (I don't ever seem to have more than one spot at a time but when it goes it leaves a big red blotch that takes months or even years to disappear). I look a mess. I was looking into cosmetic surgeons and still am but these products were suggested to me on another thread - I was wondering if anyone could educate me further? Someone on the old thread said they were "controversial" I think?! Why is this?
One specific question I have is related to the bleaching they supposedly do - what if they bleach your skin to a colour that isn't your natural one, so your face is not the same colour as your neck and body?! Is this a risk or do they just remove the pigmentation and get you back to normal?
And if they leave you red and flaky can this be covered up with make-up? I already plaster myself in the stuff everyday (make-up) and know the good brands to use to cover up discolouration, but realise it can't do much for flakiness. Is the flakiness very bad?
680 quid later I would say dont do it - it is good and did lift some pigmentation but you need to keep using it or it comes back .. the peeling is not too bad - noticable but nothing horrendous and the (additional and expensive) moisturiser kept it under control.
