Chemical peel burns and pigmentation of the skin
There are a few phases of healing after a chemical peel burn. Once the skin has healed, there may be some pigmentation in the skin. If the pigmentation doesn't resolve on its own, you may need to begin topical therapy with skin lighteners. Our choice is the Melarase creams.

Thank you for your question. Be sure you are only using gentle products for your face while the burned area is healing. Use a mild cleanser and moisturizer in the evening and the same cleanser with a face sunscreen during the day. You may want to apply Aquaphor to the burned area until it heals, keeping it well hydrated will reduce the risk of a scar forming. I would suggest consulting with an aesthetician in your area to assist with any additional acne concerns to avoid causing unecissary damage to your skin.
