I just got a chemical peel yesterday at a spa. Highly recommended and has great ratings. The woman said it wouldn’t leave any redness and would lightly peel after a couple days. After I left, my t-zone continued burning for about 4 hours. I called and asked if it was normal and they assured me everything was fine

Doctor's Assistant: When did burning first appear? Have you used any medication for this?

This morning I woke up and i look awful. So much red skin around my nose and mouth and i can’t go out looking like this

Doctor's Assistant: Have you seen a dermatologist about burning?

It started getting red maybe two hours after I left

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

No this was yesterday They’re closed tosay No

Okay....it’s not strange that the redness isn’t all over?
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
It’s just red in weird places

No not at all

I question the technique of the person giving it more than anything

Okay. So I shouldn’t go back there for another one? She said she wanted to preform another in two weeks

No way

you might be sensitive to the chemicals too

but I would avoid it in general

Would you recommend me never getting another peel? Or just not by this person

I would be hesitant to recommend another one.

I would find out what chemicals were used and if you get another one, request different chemicals

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
