How to look better after a peel

I am not sure why you had the peel...was it for acne? If yes then take the Derm's advice and get on a regime that includes the isotretinoin. Finacea is like retin a so you would not need both.

You should be using sunscreen. SPF 45 at least. This is true especially after a peel in anyone who goes out in the sun and we all do that. I would probably NOT give you any more peels. I vote for the advice given to you by the doctor who wants to treat your acne.


Hope this helps you!
