Hi Bibs, thank you for the question and my apologies for the delay with my response but I was away presenting at a medical congress.
My advice would be to consider microdermabrasion again especially if it has worked well for you in the past. If you would like to try the chemical peel route then I would consider the NeoStrata Glycolic acid peel system (proven to be safe on all skin types) with the clarifying booster pads. These will need to be performed over a number of sessions (4 to 6 weeks apart over a 4 to 6 month period). Your best option would be to phone Renew Clinic and confirm that they perform the NeoStrata Peels. Alternatively please log onto the SA Dermatology Society webpage http://www.derma.co.za/ and click the Patients Corner Tab and from there click the Find a Dermatologist which will guide you to a doctor close to you. Please phone the rooms first to find out if they perform the procedure you are looking for.
