I use a glycolic acid cream to lessen fresh red marks and control acne, I had a closed rhinoplasty a week ago, I want to use this product again avoiding the nose and the area directly around the nose, is it okay to use it on my face again?
Is it OK to use Glycolic Acid Cream Post-Rhinoplasty?

Glycolic on nose
it is no problem. good skin care is always appropriate, especially when the skin was not operated on. good luck
Glycolic acid use on face after Rhinoplasty.
Using the Glycolic, on your face, shouldn't be a problem after yor Rhinoplasty as long as you leave it off your nose.
