“I was informed that my face would itch. The procedure with a specialist (a dermatologist) took around 10 minutes.
My face was first cleansed, then the peeling was applied and left to work, after which the acid was neutralized.
After the procedure, during the first hour, I had a tickling sensation, similar to slight poking. After around 4 hours, the skin of my cheekbones and nose got slightly red and heated, as if it was exposed to the sun.
After around 15-16 hours, my face started itching and appeared slightly swollen.
I thought this to be extremely worrying, especially after I was told to not touch my face to avoid scarring.
I called the clinic, and they told me that this is not a normal reaction, and after the doctor saw me again, he prescribed hydrocortisone, which calmed my skin down.”
