Lactic Acid Peels To Fade Red Marks

So if you read my last entry-I had a decent breakout and since I lost my lovely tan from the summer, my skin is pale and the marks are more noticable. I'm so relieved to have the breakout subside but I hate the red marks just at much as the bump itself. Anyways a few years ago I did a series of lactic acid chemical peels to fade my PIH (post inflammatory pigmentation) from an acne breakout. I did one peel a week for 6 treatments - so 6 weeks and it made an amazing difference.

So I am tapping into my aesthetician skin care stash and I will be doing Skin Ceuticals sensitive skin peel which contains lactic acid to help fade my marks. I'm going to do just spot treat the areas at hand wish are on both side of my cheeks. The peel goes on for about 5 minutes max and then neutralized and only tingles a bit.

My plan is to do this peel every 5 days until I completed 6 treatments so I figure in about a month the spots will be significantly lighter (if not completely gone)

I'll be posting progress and pictures to let you guys know how this works and maybe someone else can have some success with this type of treatment.

Anyone have any comments or suggestions I'd love to hear about them.

Do you think its safe for me to use a chemical peel while using Retin-a and Benzaclin? I would love to try it.
