What are Chemical Peels and How Do They Help with Acne Scars?

A chemical peel is a resurfacing method that allows the top layer of your skin to peel off to reveal a smoother appearance. The majority of chemical peels have a gel-like consistency, and once it is applied to the skin, it makes the skin blister and peel, which helps to get rid of the dull skin cells on the surface. Some of the ways chemical peels help with acne scars include:

  • Lightening dark spots caused by acne.
  • Better skin tone and smoother texture
  • Unclog pores to help eliminate future breakouts.

Types of Chemical Peels for Acne and Acne Scars

When visiting your dermatologist, Dr. Roger Koreen, he will examine your skin to determine the extent of scarring and recommend the best type of chemical peel for your individual needs. For instance, a superficial chemical is typically used to treat acne. A moderate chemical peel is primarily used to treat minor acne scars, and a deep peel is used to treat deeper acne scars. A chemical peel, especially a superficial chemical peel, may be used along with other medications, often chemical peels, such as a superficial chemical peel, help clear the skin. However, it is essential to talk with your dermatologist before using any medications for acne and before having a chemical peel.

A chemical peel has shown to be much more effective for eliminating scars than other types of exfoliation, such as topical scrubs. The peel not only removes dead skin cells on the skin’s surface but also stimulates your body’s natural response to produce the collagen that is necessary for filling acne scars.
