Hi, I had acne initially and my dermatologist suggested me to go for Chemical peel. 1st 2 peels where salicylic acid with less concentration and 3rd n 4th were glycolic acid 35%. I did see some results but my face had no scars after peeling i have develop more scars and red spots please suggest should i continue the same regimen (glycolic peel+benzoyl peroxide gel 2.5%+moisuriser +sunscreen). I need my red spots to clear off please suggest the approach. Thanks

Redness or Scars after Peels
If you have developed redness and scars after your peels then you should absolutely stop this regimen. Please consult a board certified dermatologist with expertise in chemical peels. Best, Dr. Green
