Notes on peels:

  1. The combination peels are reinforced peels, and the final strength is greater than the individual strengths of the peels contained in them.
  2. TCA should be patch tested on dark skin before initial use.
  3. Glycolic acid penetrates quickly into the skin, and persons with darker skin using retinoids and benzoyl peroxide may find that their skin can discolor with this acid.
  4. Use as directed.
  5. Consult your physician or dermatologist if reactions occur.
  6. Consult your physician or dermatologist if you have severe acne.
