After enjoying too many summers, my skin has been damaged by sun spots aka age spots. As the rainy season sets in (and with my 34th birthday coming up), I thought it'd be the perfect time to have my spots treated. Went to the Derma for a Cosmelan Peel. Its high success rate attracted me to the procedure.

Today, Day 2 of the peel, I went to work with a dark red, dry, itchy face (Doc warned me about the side effects).

I was so conscious when I arrived at the office, didn't take my shades off for the first hour. Then I decided, what the heck, I shouldn't lose face over my decision. When I finally exposed me, I got all sorts of reactions -- shock, concern, curiosity, bewilderment, laughter, etc. LOL

According to my Derma (and my research), the worst will be over after the first week (I really hope so!). I'm currently in a "tiis-ganda" mode (loosely, that means sacrificing for vanity). I hope all this itching and redness and flaking will be worth it. =)

I'm holding on to Cosmelan's 99% success rate, see the inspiring Before-After photos below. (Will I upload my own Before and After photos? We'll see.)

Hope I'm ready to come face-to-face with the results.
