i've been doing glycolic peels for a few years now

i don't have any pix, but i'm planning on doing next series of peels in a week or two, so maybe i'll put on a log

there's a link in my signature on my post on how to do the peels

i suggest you buy them either from puredeming.com or alphahydrox.com

Ummm, me too, just redmarks.

U going to the derm to do either laser or peel? Will be very very $$$.

Anyway, if you do go, just ask for derm's recommendation. Good Luck.

if you've got redmarks only and/or very light scarring, then i suggest you go with peels

they don't cost near as much and they'll do a great job

+ they're very good for your skin, not only for redmarks

yeah sometimes I get chemical peels on my face. My face looks like shit for like 3 days(cant shave plus it looks weird)but after I am done peeling it looks great. You have to do a series of them though to really notice and get better. Just doing one wont help very much, at least that has being my experience.

of course you can, just do the peel at night before you go to bed, cause it leaves you red for like 2 hours (and i mean red) but by the morning your fine.

you skin may look like crap for 2-5days as the GA has to kill the skin and shed it, but after that you'll look great :) plus the shedding of the skin will prevent acne as pores dont get blocked, and GA controls oil and stimulate the production of collagen, which is great for the skin
