I'm so elated with joy as I'm typing this.

I've only done 3 40% lactic acid peels in the past 3 months and these are my results...

oh and by the way the big red spot is a birthmark in case you were wondering lol

but yeah anyway this is only after 3 lactic acid peels. 40%.

I'm thinking about trying stronger ones after I finish my current bottle.

oh also... i have been taking minocycline 100mg twice a day and duac benzoyl peroxide.

however if you look closely the marks left from acne have diminished alot.

if you have acne marks that looked like the ones i had, please try lactic acid you won't regret it.

You look a lot better, I really want to try a lactic acid peel but I've heard it's dangerous to do while using retin-a and BP, which I need to use daily or else I break out horribly. Probably will have to schedule an appointment with a derm.

Did you experience a lot of peeling and flakes? I just want to know if I can use it while attending school.

Also, the cat in the background made me laugh.

It will flake a bit for the first few days but it's not noticeable. There are really tiny flakes.

I do my peels either Friday or Saturday night so I look normal on Monday.

I just thought I would post in here because your results inspiried me to try lactic acid.

So I bought a 40% lactic acid kit off eBay and I've done 4 peels so for and have noticed a great improvement.

1st peel I did when I first got it for 4 minutes, 2nd peel I did 2 days later for 5 mins, 3rd peel I did 2 days after for 8 mins which did make my face very red for 2 days after. Looking back I was very impatiant and should have waited longer in between peel but once the redness went after the 3rd peel I noticed improvement. Anyway did my 4th peel last night (1 week after my 3rd peel) for 8 minutes again and have woke up today and my marks look A LOT better.

All I can say is I wish I tried this stuff 2 years ago....seriously.

My face isn't anywhere close to being 100% again and I doubt it ever will be but I feel a lot better now about my skin as it's still very early days with lactic acid and will continue to do weekly peels with it.

But yeah for anyone else who was like my and has tried literally everything seriously give it ago.

Fmylife91 is there any chance you could repost your pictures (it says they are have been deleted)?

I am thinking of doing a lactic acid peel and am interested to see your results.
