...who has been using Retin-A (0.1%) for about 14 years now? I don't use it every night, but probably about 3-4x/wk. I also take Triamterene w/Hctz 70/50 mg 1/2tab/1x/daily for fluid retention. I would like to start the 30-35% GA peels at home, but am apprehensive about the negative side effects. I have Silk Peel done at a Medspa and loved it and the results. How do use dermabrasion and GA on a regimen together?
Would a Series of GA Peels Be Recommended for a 57 Year Old?

Trying new regimens...get professional advice...
I highly recommend you see a plastic surgeon or a dermatologist for guidance first! This could be more beneficial to you than to trying a new regimen without supervision. More harm than good could potentially come of this.

You shouldn't need to figure this out yourself as long as you go to a dermatologist or a plastic surgeon. They or their aesthetician can help create a customized program for you much better than a spa can.
