I believe you are supposed to use it for 2 to 5 minutes once a week for 6 weeks. I guess that really depends though.

Where ever you buy your glycolic acid peel maybe it will tell you how many minutes and for how many weeks.

Do keep looking because I saw a site yesterday that had 70% glycolic peels. I couldn't believe it. You have to bid on it.
I had a skinculture peel ages ago, was great but you need at least a week off. i also seriously drowned my face with Cliniques Nš4 clarifying lotion (it contains Salicylic Acid and if you apply liberally, let it dry, apply again, let it dry and then again for 3 or 4 nights running youll get a pretty good peel but it sometimes would also make me break out in a few pimples but these pimples were probably just festering there waiting to come out sooner or later, and after doing that for 3 or 4 nights you need to moisturise until youve peeled completely). I think i did this about 3 times and i remember the first time i did it i got a fantastic peel and NO breakout, but then the next two times i didnt peel as much and i did breakout a bit. I think this was probably cos what i was using wasnt really designed as a peel and therefore not too strong and only worked really well the first time as my skin wasnt used to it.

Please be very careful using anything containing Glycolic Acid, i would never use a 70% peel, thats absolutely crazy, you can cause serious burns. Even OTC Glycolic products cause irritation.

In any case you should remember that a peel isnt a solution or a cure, if your acne is active it wont go away, a peel is really for once acne has subsided completely. Like after my skinculture peel my skin looked great for about a month but then my acne came back because it was still active, though i must say it never came back as strong.
