Chemical peels are a safe, effective, and quick way to address acne. Because the chemical peel works by removing skin cell buildup, you may notice clearer skin and reduced acne-causing bacteria immediately after acne removal treatment. Chemical peels can help treat acne by removing the top layer of skin and revealing new, clearer skin underneath.
For acne that’s not responding well to other treatments, consider chemical peels. Not only can a chemical peel help eliminate active pimples and reduce the number of new ones. But it can also help improve your skin’s texture and clarity. Acne can be a real pain and you don’t have to live like that anymore. We’ve got solutions for you! Not only will our products get rid of your acne but they’ll also leave your skin feeling soft, moisturized, and young looking.
How Chemical Peels Work
Our chemical peels are a treatment that help to exfoliate the dead skin and upper layers of old skin on your face. The chemical in the liquid will quickly exfoliate the old skin. The depth of the peel will depend on the strength selected by you and the surgeon.
Exfoliating is the process of roughing up or removing the dead skin cells and oil-laden sebum from the skin. Peels are a natural exfoliation method that doesn’t require a lot of effort and is surprisingly effective at purging your skin of its toxins. This exfoliation cleanser is formulated with gentle, triple-strength lactic acid and contains a unique blend of BHA and salicylic acid for effective exfoliation. It effectively deep cleanses skin, helping to prevent acne and reduce the appearance of pores.
Chemical Peel for Acne
The peel is performed by applying a chemical solution to the skin. Depending on the strength of the peel, the surgeon may perform it in the office or outside the office at a surgical center. The chemical solution dissolves layers of skin, which are then loosened from underlying layers using razors or aggressive scraping devices. This exposes healthy skin beneath in order to remove any leftover damaged tissue. The first step of this treatment is simply to scrub your face with warm water and exfoliating cleanser. This helps prep your skin so that peels can easily remove dead cells and gently exfoliate new ones.
Your peel will be prepared as normal and then left on for the prescribed time period. This is typically around 10 minutes but varies from patient to patient. Some patients may experience more of a burning sensation from their treatment, which might be alleviated with local anesthesia.
Once you’re done with the peel, the surgeon will give you suggestions about sun exposure. And when you can reapply makeup and your skin will be peeling for a bit, so keep it covered. Once your skin is dry after your peel, you may feel some redness, swelling, itching and other side effects that last 24 to 48 hours. After that, your skin will take a while to heal and if you get a second peel, it will be less painful than the first time around.
