Chemical peels are highly effective at treating a long list of skin imperfections, but did you know it can be useful for acne? If you have been struggling to clear up your skin with no luck, it may be time to consider this option. The modern chemical peel is far less intense than those in days past but can still help rejuvenate your skin and your look!
How Does a Chemical Peel Treat Acne?
A chemical peel is great for emptying out clogged pores and removing dead skin cells. This helps to keep your skin clean, which helps to prevent the bacteria that causes acne from invading. It will also help your acne fighting products penetrate deeper into your skin, where they can do the most good. Chemical peels are essentially a method of exfoliating the skin at a deep level.
Not only can a chemical peel treat current outbreaks, but it can also help to reduce the appearance of acne scars. Other acne-related issues that can be addressed this way include:
- Enlarged pores
- Inflamed acne
What Else Can a Chemical Peel Do?
Still not convinced that a chemical peel is the right way to address your acne? Consider all the other skin imperfections that can be treated at the same time:
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Dull skin
- Loss of skin elasticity
- Rough texture
How to Get the Most Out of Your Chemical Peel
Once you have your chemical peel, it will be important to remember a few rules to help your skin look its best. Keep in mind that your newly revealed skin cells will be more sensitive to the sun. Wearing plenty of sunscreen will be more important than ever. You will also want to stick with gentle cleansers while your skin is healing. In order to get the best possible results, a series of peels may be recommended.
