You should make time to see an actual Dermatologist as they could perhaps offer you a permanent solution however I can't see why this product would not help somewhat in the meanwhile.

I've had good success with the Microdelivery Peel in reducing small scars' appearance. Because it is so deeply exfoliating (without irritation) plus contains all kinds of antioxidants, this product should be good for your old acne scars and dark spots if used at least once a week regularly for a period of time. Good luck!

I'm 29 years old now, have been using this product one to two times per week for the last 9 months. I have had acne breakouts in my 20's, and this product has helped to slough off dead skin cells and clear out pores, but has also had some impact on my scars and dark spots. It isn't instantaneous and I must say that it will never work as well as going to a dermatologist and having resurfacing being done, but will help. Depending on how deep the scars and dark the spots it may not completely "remove" them, but it should help to minimize them. You'll be able to feel the difference immediately with how soft your skin feels, but it takes significantly longer for it to really remove the more "permanent" damage of acne. I probably started to see small results visibly after a month or so, and have noticed continual improvement with continual use of this product.

If you use it religiously, it may help with the scars. However, I am not sure this particular product works miracles. It's definitely a GREAT product but mostly so for texture. Your skin will feel and look even texture-wise. I have freckles and dark spots on my t-zone too and it did not help with these. If you are seriously looking to get rid of dark spots, I'd try PCA pigment gel (but be careful with it if you have sensitive skin). Hope this helps :)

I myself have a bunch of acne scars along my jawline so I understand where you're coming from. I do believe this helps with the overall look of your skin and since it is a scrub, it does logically remove dead skin from the surface meaning you are a step closer to minimized acne scars. However, I don't really think you'll see a significant improvement. I would suggest using something like Clinique's Dark Spot Corrector or DDF's Fade Gel for your specific concern.

It's safe for dry skin. Rosacea makes you sensitive so I would try it sparingly first. Just don't scrub hard and you should be fine

I think this is a great product for all skin types. However, It can be a little harsh. I have combination skin, and normally have to use a lot of moisturizer following application (I recommend Philosophy's Hope in a Bottle).

Overall, I would say give this a try. The benefits are substantial--mainly fresh, smooth and healthy skin. I would also have to say that this is the best exfoliator I've ever tried. Promotes fast cell turnover.

I'm unfamiliar with rosacea, so I'm not sure what kind of skincare is appropriate for the condition.

I cannot respond as far as rosacea, but I have combination skin and have never had issues with this product on my dry and sensitive areas. It has helped to make my skin soft and smooth. I'd be careful with how hard you scrub and make sure to put a good moisturizer on after doing the peel, but most likely you should be just fine!

I use the microdelivery peel by Philosophy usually once or twice every week and have had great results! I wouldn't use the product daily as I think it would be way too harsh, but would recommend using it consistently at least once a week. Hope this helps... I think it is a great product!

I use this peel about 2x/week without any problems, but I have skin that is very non-reactive. If your skin is somewhat sensitive, I would stick to once a week or once every ten days. I love this product and have turned a number of my friends on to it. I hope you have as much luck with it as I have had!

I would think you'd get about 10 uses, at least, out of this kit. I use once a week; you could use it twice a week if your skin is really congested to start, but for the vast majority of us, once a week will be fine.

Question

Safe for Sensitive Skin?

I used a sample of this about a year ago and liked the results, but I'm wondering if it may cause a reaction in my skin, specifically an acne breakout, if used on a regular basis? I have very finicky skin (dry,oily t-zone,occasional monthly breakouts) which tends to overreact to 'new ideas'. I am used to AHAs and BHAs, as well as gentle scrubs, and do not have negative reactions to those. Thanks for any answers or suggestions!

I can't tell you if you will have a bad reaction but I have not. Don't leave it on longer than the directions or your skin will get a bit red. Even so, when I did that, I put on a bit of cream and the redness went away in a short time. Remember this is a serious peel. Use a washcloth in very hot water three time to remove the product. This will prevent it from getting in your eyes.

If you didn't get a reaction the first time you used this product then I doubt you will ever get one. I have done a facial for friends using this and some of them have had sensitive skin yet they didn't have any adverse effects from it. It is a really great product and I can't imagine that it would leave you with anything but lovely skin. :)
I always try a bit of any new cream on a small patch of skin near your jaw line, leave it for a few hours and if it's ok then proceed.

In my opinion, you should be just fine. The sugar scrub is very light and you gently rub it on your face. The acid activator is gentle but if you feel sensitivity you can simply rinse off. It is my guess that using this product will help you to reduce break-outs because you will remove dead skin that clog your pores. I find this product to be gentle on my skin. The great thing about Philosophy is that you get professional results from very gentle products. Good Luck!

I would doubt that this product would be the cause of a breakout. It really, truly deep-cleans and exfoliates your skin, so if anything it should reduce breakouts. The scrub's "force" is entirely up to you since you're applying it with your fingers... if you press hard and scrub it will really exfoliate a lot, but if you gently rub the scrub around your skin it shouldn't irritate sensitive skin. I quite like this product and think you would too!

It's not necessary, but if your skin can tolerate it, you should use both. The MD Peel uses vitamin c and lactic acid, which act differently on the skin than retinol.
