I recently went to my dermatologist about acne (duh). I've been on a lot of ineffective oral drugs and topicals blah blah, but I did photodynamic therapy last year which helped a lot for a few months after I did it, but it came back as it always does. I don't really want to do that again because it's a pain to have to sit inside for a week while my stupid face sheds like a molting snake, not to mention it's expensive, especially for a temporary "cure." So she suggested that I do a vitamin A peel instead, which she says will make me flakey but the peeling won't be as drastic as PDT.

So my question: has anyone done a vitamin A peel? Did it help your acne at all, and how long did the results last? And I know this isn't the red marks board, but did it helps your red marks at all?
