Chemical peels can also play a vital role in treating acne by exfoliating the skin and ensuring that dead skin cells and excess oil do not clog up hair follicles and skin pores. There are several different types of chemical peels, ranging from milder peels (known as superficial peels) to intermediate peels, to more intense, deep peels.
Chemical peels may not remove all your skin damage, but they will make you feel much fresher, and contribute to an overall advanced acne treatment package. The superficial peels are done with substances such as glycolic acid, and have a fairly quick recovery time. Intermediate peels are performed with trichloroacetic acid (TCA), and can be concentrated or diluted depending on your particular needs. Recovery time for intermediate peels is a little longer than for superficial peels, but the effects are more dramatic and generally last longer.
Deep peels were once common when clinics did not offer laser treatments for acne. Nowadays, laser resurfacing treatments have replaced deep peels. Lasers are safer and give consistent, predictable results, unlike some of the deeper skin peels from the past.
