Help with question re Renova

Hi guys,

I am not sure if I should continue to use Renova after reading some posts on this board. 8-[ I do not have major breakouts, just some cyclic acne and a few stubborn areas, and of course some light scarring and red spots. I used Renova in the past prior to laser, and had started again, but I do not want to use anything that might cause further scarring [-X of my skin, or worsen my condition. :-k Any advice would be most appreciated. Thank you!

I have been using Renova for many years now. I have used it pre and post laser peels, and am now using it pre and post CROSS TCA treatments. I haven't noticed any "new" scarring because of it. My plastic surgeon has always suggested though, to stop using Renova or Retin-A at least 3 days prior to the procedure. It can make the substance, or laser penetrate deeper than normal in some areas. Hope this helps! :)

By the way, I had hormonal acne and Renova has helped along with the Yasmin birth control pill.

No I do not use copper peptides. I am using Paula's Choice 2% beta-hydroxy during the day, and Renova at night.
