I've been dealing with this for a real long time on my cheeks. I'm not sure if it's just red marks or something else like hyperpigmentation or enlarged pores, or scars, or sun damage. Can someone help me identify what it is exactly?
Also how should I go about healing it. I have a 15% tca chemical peel from makeup artists choice. i've done chemical peels in the past once and a while. Skin flakes off a little but doesn't seem to make a noticeable difference. Maybe I have to do it consistently for months. I also have a red/blue light therapy device that I've been trying to use lately for 15 minutes a day. Hope that can help.
I don't have a lot of money so can't afford to use lasers or w/e. But still would be nice to get a good feel for all the available options. I've heard about beta gluten, copper peptides, retin A (to help skin exfoliate more), putting b3 on your face to lighten it or something.
Can you guys tell me if I should keep doing tca peels or maybe change to a different peel or a different method? Sometimes I worry that doing chemical peels could actually create more redness.
