Chemical Peels For Acne

Chemical peels are exfoliation treatments which smooth out upper layers of the skin with the use a chemical or acid. Chemical peels are great options for acne as it exfoliates the top surface of the skin preventing acne bacteria from getting trapped underneath the skin. Chemical peels can also help to dry out excessively oily skin. Bellair Laser Clinic offers various types of chemical peels for the treatment of acne.

Glycolic Acid Peels

Glycolic acid(AHA) is an alpha hydroxy acid derived from sugar cane. It exfoliates the skin and contributes to keep the skin clean. Glycolic acid is a popular chemical peel amongst young adults and those who want to brighten the skin and prevent break-outs.

Salicylic Chemical Peels

Salicylic chemical peels are also popular for acne prone skin. Salicylic peels regenerate the skin on a deeper level than what is typically achieved with microdermabrasion treatment or glycolic peels. By stimulating cutaneous shedding, we are able to exfoliate the superficial layers of the skin to avoid congestion and the build-up of acne bacteria. Unlike glycolid acid, Salicylic acid is also able to break down oils which is why salicylic acis is an effective acne treatment. Salicylic chemical peels are safe for all skin types.

Jessner's Chemical Peels

Jessner's chemical peels are one of the most effective light cosmetic peels available. A series of Jessner's peels can be helpful to lighten areas of hyperpigmentation, improve the texture and reduce acne. You can expect more skin peeling or flaking after a Jessner Peel which may last 2 to 5 days.

Chemical Peel FAQs

After receiving a chemical peel, avoid sun exposure as much as possible when healing. Do not pick or peel the skin as these actions can cause scarring. Avoid excessive exercise for 24-48 hours post treatment as well.
The number of treatments varies from individual to individual depending on the condition treated and purpose for treatment. For corrective procedures, 6 treatments are typical spaced approximately 2-4 weeks apart. For maintenance programs, sensitive skins/Rosacea sufferers, or anti-aging remedies, peels may be scheduled every 28 days apart depending on the intensity of the peel.
Alphahydroxy acids are water soluble acids which have been used for years for skin rejuvenation. These are naturally occurring acids found in fruits and other foods. They are used in many concentrations, however, commonly used to formulate the lightest of peels. These types of peels can provide smoother, brighter-looking skin. AHA peels may be used to treat fine lines, areas of dryness, uneven pigmentation and acne.
The degree of peeling depends on the strength/depth of the peel and your particular skin condition we are treating. Some clients will get a fair amount of flaking while others do not have any at all. This does not mean the peel did not work. We are slowly breaking down the skin's top layer which may take a few sessions to penetrate deeply. This means the product has penetrated and exfoliated the skin at a microscopic level. In general, whether you have experienced heavy peeling or not the end results is a glowing and smooth skin complexion.
