Weekly Glycolic Peels Vs. Monthly Tca Peels

Recommended Posts

I'm posting here to inquire about the effectiveness of a weekly glycolic (70%) peel. Would the effects of such a regimen be comparable to a monthly TCA peel (15-25%)?
Some time ago I had a TCA peel done but the solution was unevenly applied (my fault) and some parts of my face were lighter than others. Fortunately my face has recovered from the botched peel but the root problem (that I was trying to fix with the peel) remains. I believe it would be prudent to adopt a slow, methodical approach to combat my acne scarring and hyperpigmentation.
The goal here is to mitigate any potential inadvertent damage with weak (glycolic) but frequent (weekly) peels as opposed to strong (tca) and infrequent (monthly). Is this reasonably sound?
Note: In regard to glycolic peels I'm aware that the most common modus operandi is to gradually work your way up (10% -> 20% -> 30% etc.) but I'm fairly confident that my tough skin can handle a 70% peel.
