Today, I died for 20 seconds

February 02, 2012

I had a Spanish facial peel today!

My derma had been advising me to have this done since my acne problems started to just be acne scars. Because of the 5-7 days downtime, I was hesitant. Also, I could easily cover my acne scars with makeup anyway, and since my first visit to my derma 2 years ago, I have always been a Diamond Peel person. (No downtime yay!) 

But since there's nothing major event within a week, I finally went for it. I decided to do it now, before my summer season starts. Also, I'm working from home every Thursday, so that means I won't be seen by people I know. 

I would love to do a before and after shot but the thing is, I had my (supposedly) routine facial cleaning right before my Spanish peel procedure so I can't post a before photo as my face has not yet recovered from the pricking. 

So now I bring to you to the title explanation... why having a Spanish peel seemed like dying for 20 seconds. 

Seriously, it has been the most painful thing I have undergone! I thought it was just going to feel tingly, but no. It felt like there were micro-needles piercing through my face. I held onto my phone, whimpering in pain. I would even go as far as saying that it hurts more than the pain induced by Brazilian waxing. IT WAS VERY PAINFUL.

I'm sure there are far too plenty of things that really could hurt. As for this peeling procedure, good thing, it was 20 seconds. After the procedure, my derma even said, "Nakakapanghina? Para kang namatay ng 20 seconds, ano?

YES, IT WAS. And yes, I did.  

Here's to hoping that the pain would be worth it. Although, I'm not sure if I want to do this to myself regularly.
