Are you familiar with Skin Medica's Lytera?

These can be used together
What for?
What type of doctor is suggesting this?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
It is for skin lightening in preparation for a series of Fraxel treatments. The doctor owns a med spa but is not a dermatologist

Also I did a 40% Glycolic peel on myself last night and I am wondering what a normal tissue reaction is? I have red dots on my face but they are not raised or inflamed. I think it's ok but I don't really know what the norm is. I plan to use only a gentle cleanser, hyaluronic acid based moisturizer and spa until I finish peeling. Is this correct or should I be using anything else?
Expert:  DrRussMd replied 2 years ago.
What is not correct is not having a dermatologist examine you.
Hydroquinone can be overkill in some cases.
I would not only go with the spa recommendations.
OK, so that is an initial answer….
