Acne is a common skin disease that evolves as a result of the blockage or inflammation of hair follicles and their accompanying sebaceous gland. It can often result in whiteheads, blackheads or pimples and usually appears on the face, forehead, chest, upper back and shoulders.  


How do chemical peels help with acne?

Chemical peels are applied to the skin typically on the face, neck or hands which control tissue exfoliation (Peeling). This exfoliates the skin and as a result, it eventually peels off and smoothens the skin.  

Chemical peels are immensely beneficial. The process enhances the texture and tone of the skin, lightening the dark spots and unclogging pores. It also helps to prevent future breakouts as it removes the top layer of skin, allowing new, healthy skin to glow.The trauma-exposed by the chemical not only eradicates and removes dead skin cells at the surface, but the intentional damage caused also enhances the body’s natural response to produce collagen.

Depending on the damage of the skin, chemical peeling is classified into:

Superficial: Do not damage skin below the epidermis, the most superficial skin layer

Medium: This reach to the superficial layers of the dermis, the deeper layers of the skin

Deep: This generally reaches the deeper layers of the dermis

What you should do?

The first thing that you should do is to ask your doctor or dermatologist to determine whether or not a chemical peel is right for you. There are situations when a chemical peel is not recommended, such as during pregnancy or if you have cut or broken skin. It is also advised to avoid chemical peel if you have psoriasis, eczema, dermatitis or rosacea. There might be potential side effects and risks associated with chemical peelings such as scarring and permanent skin discoloration.

However, when it comes to facing acne, chemical peels are a reliable solution. The outer layer of old skin is removed during the process, the new skin that replaces it is often smoother. The result is a reduction in the appearance of scars, and appearance of now breakout of acne.
