Aqua Glycolic is amazing. Now, I've been using it three days and while it hasn't made my red marks amazingly disappear, it softened my skin and reduced the constant flush look of my cheeks. Which in turn, makes them look a lot better.

First Day, I put it on and noticed that all my active acne was red. I was disheartened and just felt like shit after that point.

Second Day, about the same thing, my face didnt look much better but I strived on since I figured I had no other product to really try.

Third Day, I woke up this morning and noticed a lot of white skin where my red marks were, and my active acne is about gone. Amazing. I'm hoping to keep this up and see how it does for me. I'll keep this updated with pictures, so everyone can see my results before jumping into use of the product. surprised.gif

From what I know of AHA's, it does strip away a very thin layer - it's a chemical exfoliant. The sunscreen is recommended because of that. It doesn't permanently destroy the top layer - your skin is always regenerating cells and skin on top of itself.

AHA can be useful in reducing red marks by continually removing the top layer of scarring on marks. It's better for mild marks (usually AHA's aren't enough for reducing actual scarring), and lots of members have had success with it.

Using 8-10% AHA facial moisturizers daily, should fade your marks within 7 weeks, give or take a few weeks.

You will not have to wait 9 months, but if you did wait 9 months, the marks would probably fade on their own!

As for the glycolic acid cleansers, I don't think they do very much. But you could try them, just make sure it doesn't get into your eyes.

Thank you Elsewhere I was a bit worried about if the AHA "destroy" my skin because of the acid

inside of this product... Would be VERY bad if they destroy a layer who is needed to be save from

sun and some UV lamps...

If the AHA+ only remove the layer for the for a temporary time and lose for this period

the shield then its okay...

and for the cleanser Rati, go here and read:

I think this cleaner works... many people have great results with him.

He have just less % as a peel and need some weeks...

Anyone here who made the peel and can write something about his results with red marks?

I used AHA+ for 3 weeks in the summer. As a result I now have about 7-8 dark acne scars on my head that won't go away. I would dump the AHA+ in the toilet if I could go back in time.
