Acid Peel, Help!!!!

Recommended Posts

I just purchased 20% Glycolic Acid and 10% Salicylic Acid to treat my Acne scars. I understand that most of you use at least 20% Sali acid and 30% Glycolic acid to peel your scar away, but I don't want to do that because i believe it's safer to use a lower concentration of acids.

My question is: Should I apply 20% Glycolic acid on my face immediately after my application of 10% salicylic Acid? Is it going to be too harsh on my face? what is the down time for acid peel?

thanks. So do I rinse it with water or a cleanser?

So do you think 20% sali acid and 30% glycolic acid would help my scar better?

Based on my research on this board, it seems to me that none of the acid peels can get rid of scars!

Water should be fine to get rid of SA and GA.

Some people have reported some improvements using GA but I think they are applying it in extreme methods/strengths.

I think a medium to deep TCA peel can possibly lessen and smooth out scars. TCA is a strong acid for sure and can cause significant peeling in high concentrations. It's proven to repair scars in CROSS application methods so It has to do something in strong concentration peels.

I did TCA beofere. The down time for my procedure was 12 days!!! It did improve the appearance of my scars, but I got so many pimples after the peeling.
