Thanks for writing in.

Glycovira contains glycolic acid it is good for acne prone skin.It can help in acne as well as pigmentation and scars.

You can use Deriva CMS cream at night over pimples .
It will help you.

Also you can use Brevoxyl creamy face wash.It is good for acne prone oily skin.

Instead of dermabrasion if you will undergo chemical peeling with glycolic acid it would be good for you.It will reduce acne and scars both.Dermabrasion can lead to increase in acne in patients who are prone to acne.

Avoid sunexposure while using Glycovira .Use good quality sunscreen like SUNCOTE GEL and physical protection with scarf during day time.

Hope this helps.
I will be available for followup.
