Has anyone used peels (Lactic or glycolic) with good effect on scarring (indented or raised)??

I know they work well on pigmentation but... 8-[

Hi guys,

Does anyone know if the home peels can cause flare-ups of cold sores? I had a full face break-out of cold sores after laser resurfacing...ouch. That outbreak occurred even though they had me on meds (routine) prior to surgery. To my knowledge I never even remembered having a cold sore, needless to say I was shocked! So, coming back to the peels, does anyone have any idea if this is a risk? Thanks in advance!

Hmmm that's interesting, I find that I experience the opposite. I mean, for a few hours after the peel my face is red but by the evening the redness is gone and any red or purplish scars are much lighter.
