Chemical Peels

A chemical peel is a treatment that chemically exfoliates the skin's top layers to reveal the softer and healthier skin below. Chemical peels are used to treat a variety of skin conditions. This can include environmentally damaged/hyperpigmented, acne prone, and even sensitive skin types. In many cases, wrinkles caused by sun damage, aging, and heredity can be reduced and even eliminated through the use of a series of chemical peels. Irregular skin pigmentation, sun-damaged skin, and even precancerous keratoses may improve as a result of chemical peels. Chemical peels can increase the skin's tolerance to external factors and control acne. The strength of the chemical peel is determined by the patient's individual skin type and the degree of damage to the skin.

Chemical Peels for Acne Scars

How effective are chemical peels for acne scars? First of all, chemical peeling is actually a chemical exfoliation. It is one of the many skin resurfacing techniques which utilizes exfoliating chemical agents. Once these agents are applied to the skin surface, they will work by encouraging epidermal or dermal damage.

There are 3 types of chemical peels for acne scars:

   1. Superficial chemical peels

   2. Medium-depth chemical peels

   3. Deep chemical peels

Superficial chemical peels works on superficial acne scarring (experts would rather call it hyperpigmentation though) and the last 2 types of chemical peels (medium-depth and deep) show more promising results in treating acne scars.
