Acne is one of the most common skin care problems.  Why treat acne as soon as possible?  According to the American Academy of Dermatology, without treatment, dark spots and permanent scars can appear on the skin as acne clears, treating acne often boosts self-esteem and there are many effective treatments currently available.  While working with a board certified dermatologist and following their recommendations, many patients may still have scarring from delayed treatment.  At this time, your provider may suggest a series of chemical peels for those scars. With a personalized regimen and chemical peels, you can end your skin woes.

What Is a Chemical Peel?

As the name implies, a chemical peel is a treatment that involves peeling or exfoliating the skin to stimulate new growth. The peel prompts the skin to get rid of thickened, dead layers revealing healthier, less scarred skin.  There are varying depths of chemical peels and your provider will develop a plan tailored to your needs.

How Do I Know if It’s Right for Me?

The best way of knowing whether a chemical peel for acne scars is right for your skin is to speak with a board certified dermatologist.  Your provider will determine your type of acne and the best course of treatment specific to you.  Let our professionals at Advanced Dermatology & Cosmetic Institute recommend the best treatment plan for your skin care concerns.
