Glycolic Acid At Home

3 posts in this topic

Hi everybody, I just have a quick question regarding home use of glycolic acid

I am an experienced user and have done the glycolic treatment up to 70% several times now. However, I am thinking of doing it at home because it seems much cheaper.

My question was, should I get a 70% unbuffered or buffered glycolic acid and also are these products sufficent enough to use at home safely:

I would definitely caution AGAINST using such a high AHA concentration when applying these treatments on their own. Since you are a novice at self application of the treatments, you should err on the side of caution and use a low dosage until you have a better handle on the application process. Then proceed from there... However, I would say that doing it with a professional is probably best... Try to ask an skin care professional before proceeding with at home AHA treatments. Good luck!

At home mini peels are no big deal. I've done several at home jessner peels. I wouldn't trust anyone selling at home chemical peels on eBay though. You really don't know what you'll end up with. Buy through a reputable site like makeup artists choice. They have many chemical peels to offer. Their prices are very affordable as well.

I buy stuff from them all the time and they're great! They always include free samples too!
