Do Chemical Peels Remove Blackheads?

Doctor Answers 1

Chemical Peels & Blackheads

Generally, no chemical peels will not remove black heads. Chemical peels vary in depth and degree of skin improvement. Most chemical peels are superficial and medium depth, which don't treat black heads. Deeper peels may have the potential for removing blackheads. However, the risks and potential complications are higher with deeper peels. Only after a comprehensive evaluation by a dermatologist or chemical peel specialist can he/she help determine appropriate options for you.
