I have been trying to sit and pen down part II of “Treating Uneven Skin Tone” series but due to some or the other reasons or maybe since I have to think a lot before writing down everything, I was delaying it. Now without wasting time lets jump to the part II.
First of all let me tell you all that by “Treating Uneven Skin Tone” I don’t mean getting fairer. It means that I want even looking skin, whether I am dusky or fair.
Ok So here are the Before & After pics, results are visible ! Both the pictures have been clicked by the same camera under same lighting at the same place.Like I mentioned in my last post, as per dermatologist the main concern was tanning, damage caused by UV rays, dry/ dehydrated skin.
What I did
- As per her advice I applied mix of Glycol A & Dermz Ultra in (1:2 ration) for 2 hours daily at night, wash it away, apply Supatret C on acne, wash it after 1/2 hours, apply Elovera IMF lotion and go to sleep.
- She also pointed out that my skin is dehydrated, Elovera IMF worked like magic, its very light and sinks in to the skin in no time. It kept my skin supple.
- I had to continue home peel for 15 days, after that I was supposed to meet her, where she would have suggested next level (May be a stronger peel), however I was pretty satisfied with the results and due to some issues couldn’t visit her this month. Will be visiting her next month (She comes only once a month).
What was instructed
- I have to use NOTHING on my face except the products she prescribed. For full list check my previous post
- I had to wear SPF 30 during the day even when I am indoors, since computers, TV, Lights, Gas burners etc emit UV rays too !! Since My skin was peeling it was pretty vulnerable to hyper pigmentation (which is just opposite of what I wanted).
- I should not use any scrub on my face, even if i see dry/ flaky patches across my face. I remember an incident which explained me how vulnerable my skin was at that time. I wiped my face with a regular facial wipe and it resulted in red rashes across my jawline which lasted almost 1/2 an hour.
- Skin might feel hot (Slightly) after applying peel, I could also feel stinging sensation, but it subsided in 4-5 days. Nothing much to worry.
- I can apply makeup as long as its oil-free (for acne) and non – comedogenic.
- Drink 8-10 glasses of water daily.
- Even skintone , skin feels smooth as baby and so soft.
- Acne is under control, I hardly see any on my jawline.
- Acne marks and blemishes have faded almost 50% (They haven’t vanished)
- For further improvements, a light in-the-clinic peel was suggested, which I am still not sure. I do not have major blemishes or marks so I might skip that. I would ask doctor if I can repeat the peel process after 4-6 months.
I am loving the result totally, except the fact that being a beauty blogger I was totally not supposed to try & test any new skincare product for almost a month. I used Forest Essentials Ubtan and it scratched my face !! Its not that i was using that for the first time, but let me tell you new skin layer is super sensitive so use anything cautiously ! I have realized that visiting a dermatologist and getting a treatment under her/his supervision is much cheaper, effective and long lasting than any other famous fairness/beauty cream available in the market. I have changed my skincare routine and I am loving all the products. Make sure to keep using sunscreen it will retain the even skintone you have achieved through peeling.
The whole cost of the Treatment (One time) that includes consultation and products was 3000-3500. If I get a peel done it would cost me 1000 per sitting. Doctor’s fee may vary.
