It is simple to go to a pharmacy and find many solutions for acne- but when it comes to acne scar treatment finding a cream or lotion is not that easy. People want acne scars to disappear as quickly as possible, but treatments are not as easy as buying a cream.
Don’t worry, because chemical peel could be the answer to your scar issues.
What are chemical peels?
A chemical peel is a procedure in which skin-friendly chemicals are applied to the skin, usually on the face, neck or hands. They exfoliate the skin and as a result, skin eventually peels off. The final result is smoother skin.
While its primary purpose is to even out skin tone and smooth imperfection, there are different types of chemical peels for different requirements. The first type is the superficial one in which the chemical doesn’t penetrate beyond the first epidermal layer of the skin. This type of peel is helpful to even out skin tone and gently exfoliate.
The second type is called a ‘medium’ peel, which targets damaged skin cells on both the outer and middle layers of skin. It is used to treat wrinkles, age spots and even freckles.
The third one is called a ‘deep’ peel. Just like its name, this procedure penetrates deeply into the middle layer of skin. It is effective on freckles, wrinkles, skin discoloration and due to its deeper penetration, it also removes scars.
What does a chemical do?
The term ‘chemical peel’ may sound scary. Chemicals on your skin? Ouch! However, the chemicals used in this procedure are skin-friendly and proven. And the most discomfort you will probably experience with this procedure is slight stinging. You can also notice crusting, irritation and redness.
Who do you speak to?
It is important to consult a reputed doctor or dermatologist to find out whether or not a chemical peel is right for you.
There are conditions when a chemical peel is not recommended, like during pregnancy or if you have broken or cut skin. It is also not recommended to have a chemical peel when you have rosacea, dermatitis, eczema and psoriasis.
However, when it comes to acne scar treatment, chemical peel is an effective solution. As the outer layer of old skin is removed during the peeling process, the new skin that replaces it is often smoother, clearer. The result is a reduction in the appearance of scars.
