What is an Acne Peel?
The lightest of the chemical peels, an acne peel is an exfoliating procedure which targets the bacteria that cause acne breakouts, while ridding the skin of dead cells that are responsible for clogging pores. In some cases, acne peels are also performed to soften wrinkles, even skin texture and fade skin discoloration. Acne peels can often be performed quickly, with dramatic results on patients suffering from mild to severe cases of acne.
How is an Acne Peel Performed?
First, the area being treated is cleaned thoroughly and then dried. To exfoliate the skin, an alpha or beta hydroxy acid is then applied, which will cause a warming sensation. Following treatment, the exfoliant is removed, and the skin, again, dried thoroughly.
