glycolic acid. need advice

because of work-related reasons im thinking of holding off on fraxel for 6 months and in the meantime perhaps consider using glycolic acid regularly. has anyone here gotten a bad side effect from using glycolic acid. how was your experience with glycolic(good or bad)? btw, im asian so my skin may be sensitive to hyperpigmentation.

I started to get cold sores when I did 40 percent peels. It didn't bother me right away but it continued so I eventually stopped I was seeing slight results. BTW I was also using super Cop and Copper Peptides so this might have also caused the cold sores.

Is glycolic acid supposed to absorb quickly into the skin? I did a glycolic peel tonight and it seemed to "ball up" (cohesion) and sit on top of the skin. Is this normal? If not, does anyone know any remedies? Thanks - J
