70% Glycolic Acid Peel with Mild Psoriasis on Face

I am a 32 year old male with mild psoriasis on my forehead just below hairline and two small areas on cheeks. It is well controlled with steroid creams. I have purchased a package of six 70% vivite glycolic acid peels(only offer 70%) and six microdermabrashion treatments. I just had my first demabrashion with no side affects. What sequence would you suggest as far as treatment beetween the peels and dermabrasion and steroid cream?

 Glycolic peels can be dangerous for patients with psoriasis. Psoriasis can flare and extend over areas of damaged skin and the inflammation from peels can extend the psoriasis.
