Hey everyone,


So I was given Tazorac again by my dermatologist to avoid acne from forming and to help with my red marks (PIH). I got a 25% TCA peel around 2-3 weeks ago and my next session is on August 5th. I began using the Tazorac yesterday because I had used it twice 2 weeks ago and it irritated the heck out of my skin, so I washed off and waited for my skin to properly heal.


It's been a day and I did notice my face a bit more red, and some really small pimples I had are forming tiny whiteheads, mostly in the chin area. How long does this process last? Thanks in advance :D

It can take a while before results start to show, the first month usually can result in a worsening of acne but since you are getting TCA peels this might help
