Glycolic Peel vs Salicylic Acid Peel

Recommended Posts

I unfortunatly am a sufferer of not only shallow scarring, but severe redmarks all over my face. After doing some research, I read about glycolic peels and salicylic acid peels... both sound very promising for fading hyperpigmentation. :o If you've had any experience with either of those, please share!

Oh and a couple questions--

What is the down time for each of those peels?

How long before you saw improvement for your red marks and/or indented scarring?

And what "brand" would you recommend?

Thanks in advance :D

I've given you my recommendation in PM but I'll add it here, too! :)

I would just stick with a retinoid for now (and you mentioned a great one, Green Cream) and not do a peel for a while. I would wait at least six months preferably a year before you do a peel as your skin was so devastated even prior to your Accutane therapy. The level 3 Green Cream should be fine and gentle enough not to irritate your poor skin. Treat your skin gently!

Yep good idea Wynne, thanks! =]

I have some level 6 green cream here that I bought like last April that I think I'll start off with, rather than getting level 3.... I only used it a couple times and don't want it to go to waste. Plus my skin is quite tough... nothing seems to irritate/burn/sting it! lol (this is coming from a girl who could use 100% undiluted tea tree oil all over the face without the slightest sting and minimal redness :shifty:)
