Glycolic Acid-first time users, what % should you start with?

I have never used GA before.............I am planning on using it if my lasers (which i am currently doing) dont work..........what % should i start off with? and how long leave it on for?

where should i get it from?

Could i start off with 100% GA and leave it for 5 minutes? (they sell something super strong on ebay)

I dont wanna end up burned with permanent scars forever on my skin :ninja: .......but i also dont want to spend 1 year getting rid of my scars...........what should i do?

thanks

100% GA for a first time user for 5 mins?! are you out of your mind

you're not allowed to use anything below 70% above your neck.

i'd suggest you start off with a 30% ga and leave it on for 2 mins and then work your way up to 10 mins by adding min each peel. and do it ONCE a week.
