Just did a 70% glycolic peel..

Recommended Posts

I have not done gycolic peels for a long time because my face is too damn sensitive. The last time I had one was at a facial salon where the lady used 5% gycolic acid but had to wash it off right away because it burned really bad.

I also used to buy gycolic acid from the facial salon and do it myself. The highest I have ever gone to was 10% and the last time I used it was at 5%. I am a weakling!

Right now I use alpha hydroxy at less than 4%.

wow hli :-s ... 70% will set your face on fire.

he doesn't exactly say to use weekly, just weekly 4-6 times then down to 35% every month. Later I asked and he said its ok to use 35% weekly for maintenance.

anyway people with sensitive skin beware of glycolic acid! [-X

I just had my 3rd peel. I don't want to drag on here, so please refer to
