I get GLycolic peels professionally done every 3 months.... If money is low, I get glycolic acid from a an online seller
 
 
I have purchased from her many times... she sends directions on before & after care of the peel and ships quickly...
 
 
for person's of color, the lower strength is the recommended dose... if ya havent had oen before, Id try 30%.... ya can buy a dollar store makeup brush to apply with and the best neutralizer is simply a bakign soda & water paste...  put it on immediately after rinsing off the solution...let stay for 10 mins and rinse off..  follow but a non-oily heavy moisturizer...

Idk but I prefer glycolic cuz altho it burns it's still does't burn like tca. That stuff burns like hell and irritated my skin so much I washed it off immediately so I didn't see results. but I've gotten great results from glycolic. It burns but is milder for me and my skin glows. Thats my personal review. I prefer it from the dermatologists. I believe they have a better quality product.

Okay I got mines in the mail today
I had the 30% Glycolic acid peel
I left it on for about 10 mins....it burned a little. I had about 3 pimples and im tellin you it dried them things up! lol Overall my pores look smaller and my face a little brighter...My really dark scars were lightened slightly. The directions say to use this one a week for 6-8 weeks. I thnik after about two months my scars will be probably completely faded because I have performed this once and have already gotten good results. Btw i would definilty refer Makeupartistschoice products to any one. Their prices were the best I could find and they had my product here quickly within 2 days. I cant wait to see my results after 8 weeks....I will definitly have before and after pics by then.
