Like will not cause extra hyperpigmentation? The TCA Complex? I've used Glycolic Acid before in the past and I believe that actually caused more hyperpigmentation. What about salicyclic acid? Jessner's peels?

Latic acid is good for asian skin, its very gentle and i beleive that it does not cause hyperpigmentation on asian skin.

I used lactic acid, 40% from MUAC, and no hyperpig. it feels good right after you use it too, skin is so soft.

Mandelic serum worked pretty well too.

Gonna try Papaya soap in a couple of days.

I used 40% lactic peels from MUAC last night, and man, does it sting!! Even glycolic (30%) doesn't sting as badly. I've got some red marks on both sides of my chin this morning, and a bit of small brown patch ](*,) . Not too sure if this is pigmentation or just a scab forming. I hope its just scabs, [-o< . Will update you guys on this.

that's crazy from 40% lactic, all i get is some mild stinging and some redness which persists for a lil while wow
I can feel it's getting nearer

Creeps in and out of your mind
I'm destiny personified
I know there's something more behind
but is it really justified?

Uh huh, I don't expect it to sting at all, actually. It's been about 28 hours since that peel, and my skin still hurts. So, I'm really really gentle with it now. Don't want to further aggravate it.

Acid on your face is not a great idea.. Just my advice and experience. [-X [-X [-X

If you are concerned about hyperpigmentation then you might consider an enzyme peel rather than an acid peel. They are supposed to be more gentle.

It's possible that lactic acid would be ok for you, but rather than risk it I'd probably try it in a hidden area of your face before doing your entire face.
Please proceed with caution.

I'm 100% asian and super white(but can tan), and I've used TCA Complex and Glycolic Acid with no problems. I didn't know having asian skins matter in scar treatment. Should I proceed with caution next time? :-s

Jessner's peels are very strong. They are available on eBay but I would stay clear of them.

curryboy: Some people with darker skins can have hyperpigmentation or hypopigmentation problems when they are exposed to certain products such as Glycolic Acid. Some people don't have any problems - I guess you are one of the lucky ones.

Lactic acid is alright for me. It did sting for awhile, but now its ok. I've got some scabs, its pretty irritating, but at least I can look forward to better skin after everything has peeled off.

Wendy - it's possible that the lactic stung because of other topicals that you're using... I know when I use retin-a, the lactic acid does sting.
