question for maya about lactic peels on surgery scars

Recommended Posts

Well you got it in the title... Do you think it's ok to do a lactic peel 1 month after the punch elevation surgery ? The scars are still pinkish.

I spoke with Dr Chu about AHAs - he said it's safe to do GENTLE peels/use other exfoliating methods after 3 weeks. I performed lactic peels 3 weeks after punch excision - it was fine, felt great.

Ok great so I will try the lactic peel for the first time tonight.

Just so I don't make any mistake : I was planning on putting copper peptide and emu oil after the peel, is it ok ? I usually put retin-a also before the CP but I figure this might be harsh after the peel.

And, I will not use mandelic acid tomorrow morning.

I would leave the retin-a and mandelic for 1 day after the lactic peel - although some can tolerate all of it (normally after a few peels)

It's very good to use the CP serum after and emu oil - together, it's a beautiful effect.
