Hi there. So ive had mild acne for a year or two now and recently ive been using Tazorac 0.05%. Ive only used this cream TWICE. Each three days apart. And my skin is flaking, etc.

SO. I wanna get off it and get a chemical peel instead. How long do I have to wait to get a chemical peel?

i guess until your skin has completely peeled off and wait about a week or couple of days ?

The woman who did my chemical peels just suggested not using it for about 3 days beforehand!

Ah so if I wanna prepare my skin, should I just not use the mask three days before the peel?! I was thinking about doing a salicylic acid peel.

ONE MORE QUESTION!

Should I start off with 10% Salicylic Acid Peel or just go right to 20%?

just start a 20% one and dont use anything besides a moisturizer until u fully peel off from the chemical peel

 

leave peel on for 3-8 minutes up to you
