Would Glycolic Peeling Work for Erythema Dyschromicum Perstans?

No, I seriously doubt it would help.

Erythema Dyschromicum Perstans involves a disease process that produces pigmentary disruption at the dermal epidermal junction. I don't believe glycol peels would cause adverse effects, but is also doubt that they would improve the condition. I believe a combination of medial treatments and nonablative lasers such as the Fraxel 1550 would be more successful.
