My Spanish Peel experience, first time!
Finally, I can now share with you my first-ever peeling experience.
Two weeks ago, I went to Clarity Aesthetic Medical and Dental Center to try out their Spanish Peel. I was so intrigued because one I've never tried a facial peeling treatment before and two it says Spanish! I love anything Spanish! ♥

The treatment didn't take so much of my time so I definitely recommend it to people who don't have much free time to block off an hour or two for a facial.The Spanish Peel treatment, a deep penetrating TCA and multivitamin infusion reatment, lasted for only about fifteen minutes. (note: Clarity's Spanish Peel nourishes the skin with vitamins C, E + minerals like zinc and selenium)
At Clarity, Spanish Peel is always conducted by a dermatologist. Intensive peeling is a tricky treatment so it's best that you undergo an intensive peeling procedure under the careful hands of a doctor. It's not enough that you're attended by a professional, you don't want to be "burned". You want to be pretty and radiant, hence being handled by a doctor is the safest way to go!
First the face is cleansed by a cotton swab dipped in alcohol. I know! I was baffled too! I had no idea that you can use your basic isopropyl alcohol on the face! Apparently, you could. However, I'm sure it's not for daily use. The face has very delicate skin which you have to care for properly to avoid early signs of wrinkles or sagging. I recommend using Moringa-based cleansers or toners on your face. Moringa better known as malunggay is rich in anti-oxidants that effectively beautifies the skin. You can try using Hype's Moringa cleanser, as endorsed by the flawless Isabel Oli, or opt to using Human Heart Nature's all-natural Moringa cleanser, as endorsed by none other than Bond Girl, Rachel Grant.
Second the doctor applied a thin film of Jessner's Solution on my face. The Jessner's Solution effectively diminishes fine lines and wrinkles and balances irregularities in skin tone. She let the solution sit on my face /til frosting began. Here's a photo of me with my "frosted" face. :)
|Frosted face :) Redness in some parts.|
|Check out my red spots! That's a photo of me right before leaving Clarity's private rooms. Rosy cheeks much :D Anyway, if you like my lipstick, that's from The Face Shop's Face It lipstick line. SUPER GREAT lipstick! :D Try it!|
Because the doctor was reassuring, my fears started to fade away. Next thing I know, the little fan and it's comforting wind soothed my skin and the doctor's assitant was applying sunscreen on my face. Can't believe it, I'm done with my Spanish Peel! I can catch my The Social Network date :)My face was a little sore in some area, redness was visible, but it faded away after the movie... must've been the coldness in the theater! :)
After-peel care was emphasized by my doctor. Since I would be peeling in a few days, revealing a new younger layer of skin, I have to care for it with sunscreen. SPF 50 is recommended It was a good reminder because I tend to take my skin for granted since work often leaves me indoors. The doctor said even if we're indoors, we should still wear sunscreen (peeling or not peeling) to delay skin aging. Well, that's enough reason to be obedient!
For best results, one can undergo Spanish Peel every four to six weeks. Although based on my experience, the post-procedure peeling was pretty much very even, a more consistent peeling regimen would result to a more even-peel and a more radiant glow on the skin.
I didn't feel much the day after my procedure. But come day two, my face felt coarse and tight, which was a good sign because it means my old skin is being lifted already. Day three, the peeling began. I looked like I went swimming!
The peeling lasted for seven days. I found it inconvenient because I had to go to work in that! haha But after the peeling ended, my skin felt soooo smooth. I love my new skin now! Spanish Peel is a feel-good treatment. Perfect for those who want to prep their face for a special occasion! Just remember to reserve at least two weeks prior your special event so you'd face the crowd smooth and a little bit more perfect than the usual!
|No need to use foundation or powder. When running late for work *ahem* eyeliner agad! :p|
My skin feels so soft and is rosy, I can pretty much go without powder/foundation! Check out my photo below, just wearing Color Riche lipstick by L'oreal. See you in the malls! ♥
|Hot Pink lips. L'oreal Color Riche shade 641. :) (Sorry mejo nabago nung camera flash yung skintone. But at least you get to see the color of the lipstick.)|
