Hi Cause Im getting a bit confused here just wondering if anyone can help me out bit, Iv just rang up about getting either a gylonic peel or microdermabrasion as I have very thin, frail skin, few fine lines and was looking at these options as got told can help with renewal of skin a bit, but however now after calling up my doctors and talking to the receptionist have been told that a mild peel may not help with fine lines and it would mean getting slightly stronger!!

I have looked around so I can find somewhere with good reptutation before getting anything done to my face but unfortunatly it will mean me paying 45 pounds just to be seen by a consultant, anyway what Im looking for is some opinions on peels and microdermabrasion if this is a worth while thing to do or by me just using things like the green cream etc should be enough to restore my skin to a better stronger state, obviously though Im wanting to get rid of my fine lines too!!

Any opinions on this would be great, thankyou:

Since your skin is thin and sensitive, I think I'd try a cosmetic fix first. Biotherme has a good line, I used it on occasion myself and liked it. Using harsher products on your face could case serious irritation. Talk to a good cosmetician, and buy something that has been well-tested.

at the moment iv just bought the green cream and ordered some of the Is Clinical Youth Serum, hopefully this will help, but yeah i check out what you suggested, just really wanting to smooth out my skin and help it out a bit, but yeah il wait, just wanting some opinions really as did think peel, microdermabrasion might help bit but the anyway the trouble is with talking to a cosmetician is that now a days i think anyone will sell you anthing even if it works or not on your face just to make a sale, even if they believe it work or not!! thanks for advice!!

That in many cases is very true. I was in a large department store recently where they were featuring a new line from Lacombe. It looked very impressive. I tried some of the product on my skin and it felt good. At that time a cosmetician came over to "help" me and I asked what was the active ingredient in the product. She picked up the jar and started to read the ingredients, "lets see, water ....." Do you think I'd pay $150 for the cream on her advice?

In another thread I posted information on a product from the Cellex-C line, it's called Hydra B-5 Complex, this product works beneath your skin hydrating it -- it's a serum and you need only a couple of drops for your face. It's suggested that you use a moisturizer on top of the serum. I've used the product and it does hydrate your skin without adding any oil. Cheers.

What are gylonic peels? Are you referring to glycolic peels? or is this something I don't know about?

Its awful though is it not so many people will do anything just to have a quick fix to there wrinkle etc they have on there face, and meanwhile Iv realised you really need to look into these things properly before purchasing anything, this is why forums like this is are so great

Glycolic is rough if you have thin skin that gets irritated. And especially NOT microderm, if you have any exposed capillaries or redness don't do it. I would go with a more mild lactic peel. Highly effective and has most all the benefits of Glycolic, just not as harsh.

I would agree in part with the above statement. Glycolic and Micro can be rough but they can also be very mild depending on the application intensity. As cassius said though lactic acid isn't as aggressive and you may choose to start light and move up progressively as needed.

Well Im starting my retinol cream if it is allowed into the country from the Usa that is, so in which case that will peel some of my skin anyway, wont it! If this is the case been thinking may be I should leave the facial peel dermabrasion, not sure if this wont be too much on the skin otherwise, dont want to leave my skin thinner than what it already is? Any opinions though always appreciated as usual though, thanks

I highly recommend MD skincare 30 day 2 step peel. It is a combo of all 5 of the acids to create optimal penetration and is very close to our skins ph for max comfort. It helps renew as well as regulate oil productions to help out both oily and dry. this professonal grade product is usually one application per day so you could try to do one every other day or third day and see what your skin thinks. It can be done in alternating months and will be an extreme benefit to antiaging and skin laxity issues.
