chemical peels

Recommended Posts

i have just cleared my self of acne with the use of minocin. But they left dark patches on my forehead. I was wondering if this unraised brown mark would go away with chemical peeling. another question is that i leave these brown marks after acne goes away so i have been prescribed accutane will this do anything to help them and could i use a chemcal before accutane. I have been advised against using chemical peels after accutane. - Thanx for any help

Try peels at a very low concentration. High percentage will burn the skin.... If you do go on accutane, don't do peels, your skin will be VERY sensitive. For 1 year after accutane aswell....

You may consider trying VIT K cream, theres a thread about that, in the past.

Many people have stated that you need to wait at least a year before doing anything for your scars, not sure if that is the case with marks as well. Better to be safe than sorry I would say.
