Could the white spots on my face after my 3rd chemical peel session be caused by sun exposure?
Chemical Peels -1 answer
The first two chemical peels I had went well; I didn't have a problem. The third one was a medium peel, and instead of using sunscreen I wore Fair & Lovely cream. Now, I have white spots on my face. Could this be due to the cream, sun exposure, or both?

Chemical Peels -1 answer
I am a 29 year old from India who has a normal complexion. I get pimples on my face and due to squeezing the pimples, dark spots have remained. Can I use a 50% or 70% glycolic acid chemical peel at home? Three years ago I had a dermatologist do this peel on my face...just wondering if it's safe to do myself.

I started peeling around my mouth and a little on my chin the second night after applying a chemical peel. I used the second towelette all over (even the peeled areas) and now I'm afraid I have burned the skin! Everything has peeled off now, but my skin is tough and thick. What should I do?

Can I resume weight lifting immediately after a chemical peel?
Chemical Peels -1 answer
I've used 14% glycolic acid every day for 10 years. Now, I want to do an 18% TCA peel. Every article I've read seems to say use Retin-A and AHA for two weeks. Is this correct? Also, I lift weights and would like to know if I can resume my weight lifting immediately following the peel.

How often should I apply my glycolic acid peel?
Chemical Peels -1 answer
I just did a glycolic acid (50%) peel. It was burning before the neutralization step, but after that I didn't feel anything. Nothing has changed, not even the skin color (complexion). My face is not red or peeling. Can I apply the peel again the next day? How often should I apply the peel and how many applications will it take to get the results I am looking for?

Are chemical peels the proper treatment for rhinophyma?
Chemical Peels -2 answers
I've done about 20 chemical peels (every 3 days) on my nose to treat my rhinophyma/very large pores. The solution contains 70 percent glycolic acid. At first the peels didn't hurt, but now they really sting as the dead skin is gone. My nose is back to the shape/size it was in 2000. What's your take on this?
