How many weeks of the Regimen before phasing in an acid peel?

I was planning on using a 35% Glycolic Acid peel (the Skin Laboratories one on Amazon) to clear up the brown and red marks and scarring left after acne. About how many weeks of the Regimen should pass before it would be appropriate to use this?

Before you get a peel that is meant to reduce red marks and scarring, you'll want to make sure you have no active acne and that your skin has kept that way for a few weeks. It takes most regimen users 2-4 months to get to that point, depending on how severe their acne is, how closely they follow the regimen, etc.

I would also recommend NOT using the regimen for several days following the peel (perhaps even longer) because your skin will be raw. You may also find that the peel causes breakouts, but you'll have to wait until your skin is recovered from the peel before you can begin to treat those.
