I'm just wondering if anyone thinks using a 4% AHA moisturizer in the morning and then a 4% glycolic gel at night would improve the post-inflammatory red marks and scars?

That would then be like an 8% peel daily kinda thing. Well, 4% twice daily, but it sits on the skin all day/night, no peeling it off.

Or should someone just use one of those a day? Meaning a 4% "peel" once a day.

I'm just wondering because I have lots of various scars (including icepick) and want them gone. I know a "normal" glycolic peel is 20% ish usually, so would 4% twice a day just be too harsh? Or even 4% once a day be too much?

I'm just looking for anyone who's tried using glycol acid or AHA daily to help give me some advice. I know it could take a while. But I'm just thinking - using an AHA to exfoliate daily is a lot gentiler on the skin than scrubbing it.
