Glycolic peel burned my face...need advice

Posted by on Jun. 28, 2012 at 2:01 AM

I had a glycolic peel done about 2 years ago and my skin got really raw around my nose and upper lip area. Now the area looks hyperpigmentated and has a shaded look to it especially right after I wash it or get out of the shower. Gosh I hope this isn't permanent. :-( Has anyone ever used an over the counter product to get rid of hyperpigmentation on their face? I heard Meladerm is a good choice. I don't want to use anything with Hydroquinone in it. Any advice? Thanks!

I don't know what it would be, but I would look into natural treatments - things like vitamin e and coconut oil. Lemon. Honey.

Go to a dermatologist.

What you experienced was a chemical burn. It probably is not permanent, because it sounds like it was superficial... but it will probably be years before it goes away completely.

I've never tried to remove burn marks with anything.

Do you know what the cause of your hyperpigmentation was? How many laser treatments did it take to get rid of it.
