Perfect peel... holy fuck

I’m itchy. It’s like my very soul needs scratching.

Has anyone had one? I’m loving the results but it’s so hard not to scratch and the peeling sensation makes me feel like I need a wee. [deep breaths]

What is it? It sounds horrible!

Is it like footner (but for some other body part???)

Yes! Footner for the face! Driving me mad.

Is the black mask thing? Friend of mine did one and posted a hilarious video of her yelping in pain when it came to taking it off, think she got a cheap version.

Haha, not quite. , It’ put on by a dr and left on for 6 hours. I’m shedding skin like a snake so I’m hoping it will get rid of my hyperpigmentation. So hard not to pick it.

Wow that sounds interesting! Will your skin be all soft and smooth once it's over then?

Nickynackynoodle Sat 02-Dec-17 18:56:47

It certainly feels soft and lovely if a bit tight! I think I’m about 2/3 of the way through shedding just now.

I’m putting sunscreen on like crazy as I think it’s more vulnerable now. Can’t wait for it to finish to see the results.

How long does it take to shed? Surely not like footner, a full week of peeling?

This is something you've had done at a salon, yes? I'm intrigued..... I have very dry and just tired looking skin, I wonder if this would help? Is it very expensive?

Thinking of training in this so reading with interest!

That sounds amazing

Where did you have it done? How much did you pay? Have you got a link I can look at?

Had it done at National Slimming and Cosmetic C...omething. NSCC. It was £250. Had it Tuesday about 4pm, peeling started Thursday morning. Fri I was off work thank goodness as it looked awful.

Lots of peeling yesterday, today not so much but I’ve been wearing a beanie!
Have been cutting the skin off with nail scissors. I reckon it will be done tomorrow but apparently some people get a smaller second peel.

Skin definitely looks good underneath! I’m sad I didn’t take any pics!!

The peeling started in the middle... this is left on each side... forehead is quite patchy
