Chemical Peel for Hirsutism Scars (with photo!)

So this morning I woke up morning to a face full of this!

 

A few days after the salicylic acid, my face started to “peel.” My first felt smooth but tight. You know how when you smile or move your mouth from side to side and your face feels like it’s saying “snap, crackle, pop!?”

That’s how my face felt the days immediately following me initially applying the chemical peel.

So this is what a liquid salicylic acid peel looks like. It’s more so of my skin shedding than peeling, like the directions said it would.

I have to wait several days to a week to allow skin to completely peel which I will do.

To remove the dry skin, I used a homemade liquid black soap solution with organic glycerin to ease up on the dryness of african black soap to wash my face.

Much of the peel is gone but my face still feels dry even after applying a light moisturizer.

So if you are thinking about a peel, it may look something like what I posted above. Alot of shedding of skin as I suspected. It doesn’t hurt but be sure not to scrub your face too hard or you might damage your skin some.

I can tell my skin is trying to even itself out already, but until I finish shedding I wont know for sure.

Thanks for reading.
