So, I recently got a chemcial peel (called the Sensi Peel) and it has REALLY helped with my fading acne scars and smoothing out my skin. It says that it's supposed to inhibit acne formation-I should find out if that's true in the next three weeks or so.

I went onto the PCA Skincare website and read about some of the other peels they offer and they all seem interesting but I'm hesistant to try the others because I have a darker skin tone and read that some peels can actually cause hyperpigmentation on darker skin. So far, the Sensi Peel is the only one I've read about that seems safe for darker skin tones.

Has anyone tried other PCA chemcial peels?

If no one has tried the PCA peels, has anyone tried any of the other peels that are out there like the pumpkin peel or blue peel?

I've heard wonderful things about the chemical peel you used. I haven't tried it myself. How are your result working out for you? Was it a good investiment?

Hi Laurab,

The results are great but it's not a permanent fix. After doing a peel my breakouts will stop for about two months and it really helps with the hyperpigmentation that's left behind from acne. I also find that it softens my smile lines.

I got lazy (and cheap) and tried waiting 3 months and my breakouts started again-they aren't bad but still. Even the tiny pimples cause hyperpigmentation even if I don't poke at them. So waiting has actually set my treatment back.

I recommend that if you're going to do them, stick with whatever treatment plan is suggested to you.

I think my mom did this treatment - her skin did look amazing. Did you have to go home wearing a shinny product mask?

Yeah, lol, I was all lathered up in suncreen and moisturizer. They say it's important to avoid the sun completely after a peel so they really slather on the sunscreen after. Better safe than sorry I guess.

Haven't had a peel done before, but curious.. how long does the sun sensitivity last for typically afterwards? like a week?

Well, you've got to be extremely careful while your skin is peeling, which can take anywhere from a few days to a few weeks depending on your skin type and the type of peel. But once you start doing the peels your skin will be more sensitive to the sun overall so from then on it's important to avoid the sun or where sunscreen.
