Can I have microdermabrasion after an at-home glycolic peel? (1 answer)
My appointment for microdermabrasion is tomorrow. Two days ago I put a bit of 30% glycolic acid on my face. I didn't put the product all over, just on my nose and cheeks. I only left it on for two minutes. Now, my skin is just a little flaky. Should I wait to have the microdermabrasion done? Or, is it fine to have the treatment following a peel?
Would dermabrasion or some other treatment remove the dark brown spot on my legs? (1 answer)
I've had a big, dark brown circle on my legs ever since I was child. It resulted from being fat during my childhood. My legs used to hit each other, even near my private spot. I'm very shy about wearing short skirts. My family doctor said to use bleach. Would dermabrasion or some other treatment remove the spots on my legs? What is the best procedure/treatment for this issue?

Can a fungal infection be caused by microdermabrasion? (1 answer)
I had microdermabrasion done 4 months ago, and a patch developed shortly after. When I went this month, a specialist told me it's a fungal infection and recommended I use Sebifin, as well as Melaglow. But I don't have any irritation in that region. The area is dark red at times and light red at other times. Do I really have a fungal infection? How can this happen right after microdermabrasion? Please suggest a remedy.
