Question glycolic and shallow scars

does anybody know if using a AHA like glycolic acid for a period of time can get rid of shallow scars, or are they permanet ?

Re: glycolic and shallow scars

Glycolic acid is pretty light, so it would take a while to get rid of even shallow scars. You should try something like BHA acids, while would help more. For more immediate results, you should look into getting some stronger peels done at a dermatologist office (not as bad as you might think). You can definitely get rid of light scars with chemical peels.
