  1. Hi everybody, I just have a quick question regarding home use of glycolic acid I am an experienced user and have done the glycolic treatment up to 70% several times now. However, I am thinking of doing it at home because it seems much cheaper. My question was, should I get a 70% unbuffered or buffered glycolic acid and also are these products sufficent enough to use at home safely: BUFFERED: http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Glycolic-Acid-Skin-Peel-MD-Grade-70-Buffered-30ml-/190440692077?pt=AU_Face
  2. Hi, I was just wondering if it was possible to use mederma as well as using a chemical peel to get rid of some flat facial scarring? I have seen some posts on here that suggests mederma slows down collagen production, which is the reverse effect of what i want.. Thanks!
  3. Hi! im relatively new to the regimen, i started it a couple weeks ago and made the mistake of using 10% bp, my skin turned red and eventually i had a layer of dead skin that peeled of in large flakes, my skin felt tight and moisturizer did little to help but my acne seems to slowed and such. Im planning on buying from acne.org so i can stop with the hit and misses when buying from the store. As of right now i still get smaller dry flakes on my skin and cannot apply any more bp since i only have
  4. It happens to the best of us, you try a new treatment and your skin just doesn't like it! I was at a follow up appointment at my dermatologists, and I asked if we could do a round of glycolic peels to to tone down hyperpigmentation from cystic acne. She thought it would be a great idea, yet didn't take into consideration that I have been using Epiduo (2.5% BP and .1% Adapalene) for the last month. Adapalene is a derivative of vitamin A, and is structurally similar to tretinoin, supposedly withou

    Clogged Pores

    Hi guys, So I've had clear skin my whole life. At the age of 23, I started developing a few blackheads around my nose. I went in for a facial to get them extracted, and it was literally the worst decision of my life. The facialist was too harsh on my face and left tons of scarring from the extractions, and after the facial, I broke out with tiny little bumps on my right cheek. I went to the dermatologist and she prescribed me a 10% glycolic lotion for the bumps and scarring, however, this j
  6. Hi everyone. I'm a new member who joined today. Before March 2015, I had relatively clear skin. But after returning from a trip to Asia (I'm from Australia), my skin started to form a lot of closed comedones on both of my temples (I've never broken out there before) as well as cheeks and jawline. It's now June and it's still there. I recently went to see a dermatologist who prescribed me with his Glycolic Acid cream that I must apply every night. Intense scabbing has now occurred and I am wo
  7. Hi All I finally get it no chemical peel or lasers can fix enlarged nose pores. I did all the extreme things to control or improve my large nose pores and scars. I had done more than 10 sessions of co2 with erbium which improved the scars and texture by 25%, atropic scars still there. These pores are crazy they are simply stubborn. They have affected my self esteem big time and have been a recluse for a while now. I don’t wish this to happen to anyone. Anybody who successfully cured enlarged p
  8. I can have a bad sense of time sometimes, but ever since around late last year (2014), there seems to be a change in the glycolic acid lotion. It used to be thicker and creamer, but now it's liquidy and it just POURS out of the tube. There's also these little granules in the formula that weren't there in the old formula. I thought I got a bad batch so I recently ordered some more (within the last week) and it STILL is the liquidy, granuley formula. What happened?? I have been using it since abou
  9. I just found this study online, in which the participants' scars were treated with microneedling and glycolic peels, both performed on the same day. There was significant improvement. I am curious to find out if anyone has ever tried this. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/22151943
  10. Ok here’s my deal, 31 year old male. Did not have acne problems until 24 years old. its been 7 years and I am now 31 and still dealing with acne. I have been to 4 different dermatologist and tried countless gels, creams face washes, shampoo's etc. I have gone to an allergist (I am allergic to dust, mites, pollen, cats & dogs) and an endocrinologist (levels looked fine except a little low on vitamin d). I am really not sure what to do anymore to get rid of my adult acne. Dermatologist say

    Please Help

    I have a few questions regarding my current acne treatment and any kind of help or insight would be really appreciated. I'm a 25 year old guy with oily skin, have been doing acne treatments on and off for the past 10 years or so. Unfortunately, I have had a very bad luck with dermatologists and I can honestly say that not one treatment has helped me for more than a month tops. I have been using Glycolic Acid 20%, a tone adjustment cream for the past 7 months (because my skin got disastrously

    Dan's Aha

    Hello, I have only been on the regimen for about a week and I have just started to used Dan's AHA for my dark spots/acne scars. I know that you are supposed to be on the regimen for 4-6 weeks before using the glycolic acid but before the regimen I had been using Epiduo for about 6 months, so my skin is used to the benzoyl peroxide. I have only used the AHA for two nights, and both times I did what Dan said and mixed a little bit with my moisturizer before bed. So for my nightly routine I: cleans

    Lingering Pih :l

    Hi I'm mark I've had acne since middle school and recently I have been more concerned with my skin because it really messes with my confidence so ive started using different treatments. Right now my routine is to wash with cetaphil cleanser twice a day I will apply a bp product on my few active pimples on my chin and then use dans aha on my cheeks where the pih is which so far hasn't been much help. My biggest concern is just for the pih i have been stuck with these spots for atleast a couple y
  15. I've been dealing with this s*** for over 4 years now and I said to myself that this will be the last summer I'll lose. I have severe acne from upper back to shoulders and chest. It drives me crazy and hope you can understand. I also had severe acne on my face but I've been using a glycolic acid cream everyday for the past 5 months and it worked great for my face, mostly done, only a few red marks left and after i'll take care of the deeper scars. On my body I started only 2 months ago
  16. I want fast results to remove hyperpigmentation. I have brown marks that are acne hyperpigmentation. I still have active acne but wanted to sort as much hyperpigmentation out as I can before roaccutane as I know you can’t use peels for a long time after roaccutane. Should I get a glycolic or salicylic peel? Or some sort of lasering? Where is the best place in the London area to get a chemical peel/laser done. Does it have to be done by my actual dermatologist or can I just v

  18. Hello, I'm posting here to inquire about the effectiveness of a weekly glycolic (70%) peel. Would the effects of such a regimen be comparable to a monthly TCA peel (15-25%)? Some time ago I had a TCA peel done but the solution was unevenly applied (my fault) and some parts of my face were lighter than others. Fortunately my face has recovered from the botched peel but the root problem (that I was trying to fix with the peel) remains. I believe it would be prudent to adopt a slow, methodical
  19. I finished my 6 month accutane course 2-3 weeks ago and I wanted to get rid of my postinflammatory hyper pigmentation with glycolic acid. Is it safe to use it so shortly after accutane?
  20. I’ve been on the regimen for a month now and am miraculously clear! I just used The AHA moisturizer last night and woke up looking very fresh faced. My husband even noticed. I was glowing. Tonight when I did my regimen I noticed for the first time ever my skin was pink after applying my BP. I’m using a full index finger’s length 2x a day. I’m definitely flaky, but I’m happy with that as opposed to active acne. So my question is, is this from my use of AHA last night and is it normal? Or am I usi
  21. A couple weeks ago I gave myself a glycolic peel and my face was red for a couple days and peeling. I felt it wasn't the right peel for me so I gave myself a salicylic peel and my face wasn't peeling or red as I didnt feel it really do anything. I know salicylic peels are for people who are more acne prone which my skin is. I'm not as worried about acne as my skin has gotten a heck of a lot better and mostly clear. The only thing that I am concerned about now are hyperpigmentation. About five ye
  22. I recently bought 30% glycolic acid peel, tried it yesterday on my face, it stung a little for a while, that's normal. But I thought I would see something happening on my face? Not that my acne and scars would be gone overnight, but I thought the skin would be peeling or something? I've tried many things on my face and If I don't see any results I always think it doesn't work so I'm just curious if that's right and if I should continue with that peel. Thank you
  23. Hey all, I am Thomas Rio, I have had acne since I was about 14. I am now 24. I have managed it many different ways, and have seen very clear skin at times for a few months at a time. About six months was the longest stint I have been clear. I have the type of skin where if I did absolutely nothing, including not washing my face, I would probably end up with over 100 pimples at a time, maybe more. Although by now I have sort of lost the acne growth everywhere but my forehead. However, my up

    AHA glycolic acid

    I have started using AHA glycolic acid 10% from acne.org for fading hyper pigmentation brown acne marks. I use this on top of my Duac once daily gel (Benzoyl peroxide 5%, Clindamycin 1%) so I apply the AHA after/on top of the Duac and I leave it overnight. To get the best results from the AHA glycolic acid is it best to use it without Duac underneath? Would I see faster results from glycolic acid for removing hyperpigmentation if I used AHA in the morning and having just AHA on my face alone
