Hello Meles,

I've been working hard to find a Professional to assist you with your question, but sometimes finding the right Professional can take a little longer than expected.

I wonder whether you're ok with continuing to wait for an answer. If you are, please let me know and I will continue my search. If not, feel free to let me know and I will cancel this question for you.

Thank you,

Shantal

OK
For healing the skin after a peel I use homeopathic calendula cream.
this is non toxic, non drug, and you use 3 applications over the first day or so, then an application after that only if needed.

Beyond that if the problem is pigmentation you need to be working with a dermatologist who can write for hydroquinone, or a mixture of hydroquinone with other medicines. Often there are three medicines in one cream.

First , I would heal from the peels. Calendula is great for that and will not harm.
