I had a micordermabrasion appointment today but due to the breakouts on my forehead, the BA suggested using glycolic peel on me.

It's kind of expensive given only 4 or 5 minutes of treatment. This is the first time I have done the peel. My skin now is really shinny and kind of pinky, looked very rediculous. Hopefully tomorrow morning everything will back to normal.

glycolic peel doesnt help for acne but it works for acne scars and marks. I guess first you should have sallylic acid peel for acne and then later glycolic peel for marks. Or maybe you can use combination of both peels. I mean not together but alternate sessions.

The micor is also supposed to lighten the scars. but I had 5 treatments already, dont see big improvements. If Glycolic peel is doing the same job, I wonder why she replaced micro.

any glycolic acid product I can use at home?

It helped lighten my acne scars too. I used the MD formulations products while I was being treated on the recommendation of the beauty therapist. I think they had glycolic acid in them.

It can help acne scar but it makes breakout worse and more irritate.

Glycolic acid is an AHA and it'll help exfoliate skin. It helps keep pores clear and in some cases will help clear acne.
