Effectiveness of Gylcolic Acid Peel

I use to have severe acne, but now I have a few pimples here and there. I have really bad PIH from the previous acne, and its all over my cheeks and chin.

I currently use epiduo and doxycycline to keep the acne in control but I want to fade the PIH.

I read that you are not allowed to have a retin a or an iso retinol applied on your face for 48 hours prior to Glycolic acid peels. Is a 0.1% adapalene/2.5% benozyl epiduo an iso retinol or retin a?

To the glycolic stuff now.

If anyone else here has tried this:

1) how effective did you find it?

2) Should I buy a 30% buffered or 50% buffered?

3) Is it a good thing when pimples pop up after the peel?

4) Should I apply epiduo and continue to have the doxycycline if pimples pop up from the peel?

Thanx for reading =P

plz help me =(
