Chemical Peeling

Last Saturday I had a follow-up checkup with my new dermatologist, Dra. Evangeline Handog.  I'm having a really bad case of acne which started when I was pregnant with Kelly.

Dra. Handog is the 2nd dermatologist i've consulted with.  The first one was not that effective and I didn't really like the way she handled my check-ups.  I spent a total of almost 7000Php for medications but have not seen any result.

I've decided to consult with Dra. Handog and she immediately prescribed a different set of topical and oral medicines.  On my 2nd visit, she told me that she will treat my face with chemical peeling, which was quite scary considering it's my first time to do such.

She asked me to wash my face with cetaphil and right after she started the treatment. boy, did that sting! i felt like my whole face was burning! after a few secs, she asked me to rinse and immediately apply ice compress to ease the burning sensation.

I'm on the 3rd day and my face has started peeling.  i just wish my skin will be better after my sessions with her.  mind you, it's getting more and more expensive!  i spent 4000Php just for that session!

Will blog again once i see the results :)
