Skin Test Before Glycolic Peel?
I am 66, female, trying to improve facial fine lines around mouth, some sagging, general dullness, and slight redness on cheeks. As an African-American with medium brown complexion, I am terrified of possible hyperpigmentation or hypopigmentation if I have the initial glycolic chemical peel recommended by the R.N. health provider of cosmetic services. Should I insist on having a pre-test before having a glycolic chemical peel? Am I at high risk for pigment changes (5 monthly treatments being recommended)?
