I got the Clinique Turnaround 8 week system. I’d like to know of peoples’ experiences with these sort of things!

I saturated my cotton ball and slathered it all over my face and IT BURNS SO BAD wow. It was over after a minute or so though. Relief! My face didn’t get red or irritated. Tingling sensation my a$$!! haha. Then i put the calming cream on and my face felt so smooth, wow! Then my moisturizer, then bed…my face feels real soft today. I hope after 8 weeks (and $55 later) there’s a significant improvement

Mizuno, I do microderm combined with an alpha hydroxy peel. My skin peels for about 5 days afterward but I see an immediate difference in overall skin tone. I haven’t seen a lot of reduction in acne scars, but I’ve only had about 5 sessions over the last 8 months, so I don’t think I’ve been doing it long enough. However, I’ve been so happy with my skin that I care less about the scarring.

I understand your frustration with those darn scars.  I have a couple on my cheek which aren’t necessarily very noticable to other people but I am definitely aware of it, especially in outdoor light.  Two weeks ago, I had a glycolic peel and I immediately saw a difference in the eveness of my skintone and the overall texture of my skin- smooth, smooth, smooth.  Try getting one to two glycolic peels from a trusted esthetician.  Try Yelp.com and see who is ranked the highest in your area.  Also, I am using Skinceuticals intensive line repair alpha hydroxy serum.  It’s pricey at $55 a bottle but, again, I absolutely notice a difference in the texture of my skin, fine lines, and slight scars.  After all, I want to to look as fabulous as possible for the Big Day!  Good luck and let us know how you end up doing!

If you’re going to do a chemical peel, make sure to do it months before the wedding. Because my boss ended up getting a gift certificate from a family friend and had it done a few weeks before the wedding and broke out to have a red face on the day of her wedding.

I know a person that had chemical peels. Definitely definitely don’t do it close to your wedding. Your skin may take a while to return to a "normal" color.

I just had a checmical peel earlier this week and my wedding is in early September.  I’ve done the microdermabrasion as well.  I can tell you how I feel currently after my 2nd day.  My face feel nice and tight.  Just recently have I started to peel.  I have a few more facials (every 3 weeks) and a micro thrown in there before the wedding.  I do recommend that you find someone that is recommended.  I’m hoping my face is glowing and clear by wedding day.  Good luck!
