  1. maya, thank you so much for your input. i'm in the states so i'll look into these products. i'll probably do the lactic thing at night. is glycolic peel more effective? will it cause any skin irritation? i'm a guy, so wearing make-up is not really an option. tomorrow i'll buy some scotch tape and see how it works. the specialist gave me some special soap that would suit my skin better. i think it's helped. she also gave me sunblock which i apply religiously everyday now. kind of gives my
  2. maya, i haven't tried the lactic/glycolic peels. is this something i can do at home or do i have to have it performed by a specialist. i remember her saying that part of the regiment she was going to put me on (with the creams and lotions and solutions and all that) included glycolic acid but i was under the impression that it was a lotion and not a peel. but i could have just missed that info. the microdermabrasion made you break out?! she never mentioned the possibility of this. she just s

  5. hi, i have some 'superficial' scarring on my forehead from acne. i have medium brown skin and acne has left some darker brown spots. i went in to see a specialist and she recommended that i undergo microdermabrasion to remove the upper skin layer in these areas (6-8 treatments). has anyone had this procedure done? how effective is it? will the scars come back? is there anything i should be concerned about? i used hydroquinone for a while and it worked a little, but it just takes too long.
