bit annoyed really. went to SK:n clinic, in consultation she recommended either a glycolic or isolaz treatment for my acne and blackheads. I opted for the peels as didn't think I could afford the isolaz. I rang up before my appointment to say I'd reevaluated and actually, I would like to try isolaz so they booked me I'm for it.
but when I arrived they said that actually, it probably wasn't going to be right for me after all which makes me think now that in my initial consultation they were just trying to get me to book loads of different things.
had the glycolic treatment and it was 10.8% that she used. I noticed no difference straight after (never had one before so not sure if that's normal or not) and today my skin is no different. it doesn't feel any cleaner, or look at all different.
after reading all the home peel threads I feel cheated as people rave about the smooth results straight away etc.
been told I'd need a course, but want something that will actually make my skin feel less clogged after spending cash on it.
what do you think? are there any other treatments I could try instead?
I have ordered the glycolic kit from bravura to try at home it just hasn't arrived yet
yes I have seen them recommended before. I am pretty happy with my regime product wise I have some new stuff I had been using dermalogica for years I have now added in a SK:n wash that I really like and a couple of ££ skinceuticals products. for me I just need a treatment to give me a bit more of a blank canvas really, bit of extraction or something which I was really hoping the isolaz would give me
Don't rush to do it again though! IIRC from the threads last year, the collagen reproduction (or whatever it is we are doing this sizzling for ) hits its peak about 3-4 days after the peel. Or something. <vague>
I still haven't started because I haven't got any neutraliser and can't remember what I'm supposed to do with bicarb (is it?) to make my own!
Well I am on week 5 of my 30% plus I am using my dermaflannel on the days in between. Also using the HA serum. I'm not very impressed so far. My skin seems a bit shiny and taut after using the derma flannel but the last couple of days my lower cheeks/jaw area feels a bit rough and grainy, whole face a bit dry and stressed (but not obviously flaking) and I am developing a few little sort of raised, gritty white sebum spots under the skin.
