Q&A: Can Chemical Peels Help My Acne?

Posted by Jennifer Deal on Jun 5, 2011 9:08:00 AM

Question: Can chemical peels help my acne?

Answer:
1. The Jessner Peel can help remove acne scars, small wrinkles and pigmentation embedded within the skin’s surface, and leaves skin looking smooth and clear within a few days. One of the biggest benefits of the Jessner Peel is a rapid increase in collagen production; the peel is powerful enough to stimulate healthy skin cell production, and will help get rid of acne scars for the long-term.

2. BHA peels are ideal for light scarring and blemishes from acne, since they can buff away dead skin cells and brighten up the complexion. If you have acne-prone skin that is still breaking out occasionally, a Betahydroxy Acid peel may be the best choice for you.

3. Medium-strength peels are typically made with tricholoractic acid (TCA), an ingredient that provides deep exfoliation and sloughs away dead skin cells.
