Your acne may be gone but chances are it has left some scarring. Chemical peels for acne may be the solution you’re after so you can feel better about your appearance.
Chemical peels can be an effective treatment for small scars and even some larger scars, depending on their type.
What Are Chemical Peels?
A facial chemical peel involves the application of a chemical solution to your face, causing the outer layers of skin to “peel” off and be replaced by new layers of skin, making your skin smoother and reducing the appearance of scars.
Types of Peels
There are three broad categories of chemicals in a chemical peel treatment, from lightest to strongest: alphahydroxy or glycolic acid, trichloroacetic acid and phenol. We prefer lighter peels to treat mild scarring.
Deep Acne Scars
There are several different types of acne scars including ice pick scars, boxcar scars, rolling scars and hypertrophic scars. The type of scar and your unique facial and skin characteristics will determine the type of treatment best suited for you. Chemical peels for acne may be effective for your condition.
