    i m wondering if anyone had experience with cristal peel..i did it twice already and i have other 4 procedures to go,but my skin just refuses to peel.,maybe because i do as well no needle mesotherapy every other day and it keeps my face moist,or probably it is just not a very strong kind of peel,i guess i have to wait and see..

    You do mesotherapy on your face? How does that work? I noticed you said no needle, so how does it penetrate. I had mesotherapy done on my legs a few times-Hurt like hell so had to give up.

    It is performed on the machine called BTL, it offers fat-dissolve care,anti-cellulite care on the body, and anti-wrinkle care and whitening care on the face..for each purpose the physician opens sealed solution which destined to be used only once and at that very moment,i did it on my face ,so anti-wrinkle care solution was used,it involves a metalic roller and electro-stimulation,it is not painful but rather discomfortable especially when they increase frequency in latest treatments (i took 10)..does it work?i cant really tell,because i was doing other things at the same time,but i noticed some positive changes in skin elasticity..if u have a needle fobia i guess this is an alternative..hope this information is helpful

    Thanks for that info.. I understand that mesotherapy is very effective. Maybe it was less painful for you because it was on a roller. What I had, was injections repeated all over my legs which was incredibly painful. I wish I could have kept up with it because I think I was just beginning to see some results. Maybe I should go with a couple of painkillers and something to bite down on next time !!!

    Then maintain with either fair and flawless, or tonique...but now after reading the recent threads ,I need cliff notes on the conclusion to that debate
    I tried the Obagi blue peel, it stings big time but the result is well worth it. You can use a maintenance regimen after. I didn't continue with the Obagi product because its a bit too pricey (it should be good if you can afford it).

    I opted for a more practical maintenance regimen, from SouthGain/Diana Stalder-- I'm currently using their glutathione soap and their surely white lightening cream for maintenance. So far I'm happy with it.

    LACTIC ACID (Concise Information)

    Is an Alpha Hydroxy Acid naturally derived from milk sugars, which is then modified in a laboratory. It has been shown in clinical studies to improve acne and the hyper-pigmentation that is present due acne and sun exposure. Alpha hydroxy acids rejuvenate the skin by encouraging the shedding of old, sun-damaged surface skin cells. Lactic acid is one of the alpha hydroxy acid most frequently used for facial treatments because of its special ability to penetrate the skin.

    "With increasing research into what causes wrinkles and the effect of photo-aging, alpha hydroxy acids have increased greatly in popularity. Alpha hydroxy acids have been used for thousands of years as a skin rejuvenating product. Cleopatra is reported to have bathed in sour milk (lactic acid) to improve her complexion. Now hydroxy acids are a common additive to numerous skin care products including moisturizers, cleanser, toners, and masks."

    What Lactic Acid Does:

    * Helps to unclog pores and control acne and blackheads. * Deep cleans pores. * Provides a smoother skin surface, assisting to diminish scarring making imperfections less noticeable. * Reduces fine lines and wrinkles, stimulates natural collagen production and reverses the signs of aging. * Evens out skin tone by assisting to eradicate Age spots and Hyper-pigmentation. * Helps reverse the effects of sun-damaged skin.

    Lactic Acid is a non-irritating rapid exfoliator. If you are new to chemical peeling, this is the peel to try. If you have sensitive skin, lactic acid should work well for you. If you've hit a plateau with other acid treatments, this is a great alternative.
