I would not advise Chemical Peels on burn scars
No chemical peels on burned skin
No. I would urge caution on using a chemical peel over a burned area.
Once a peel is completed, healing occurs from structures located in the superficial and deeper layers of the skin. These structure (sweat glands, oil glands, hair follicles) may be damaged in burned skin. This can result in worse scarring or irregular pigmentation.
