AHAs and Red Marks - does it work?

Recommended Posts

I was thinking of purchasing the 8% AHA Gel from Paula Choice Europe. Many people here claim that AHAs lighten red marks but the customer service people from PC says it doesn't.. Anyone?

Alpha Hydroxy Acids will definitely help improve the appearance of red marks. You won't see results right away, but the AHAs (in this case the glycolic acid) will work slowly to exfoliate the skin and encourage new collagen growth - resulting in the decrease of red marks. AHAs are the best OTC treatment for hyper-pigmentation in my opinion.
