Will Silk Peel Affect Burn Scars?

My dermatologist suggests I get a silk peel for my acne marks but I have 2 burn scars from retin-a and benzoyl peroxide mixture use I was wondering if the silk peel will improve those also?

Improving Scars with SilkPeel (microdermabrasion)


Silkpeels allow the technician to customize the solutions used, infusing different topicals into the skin for different things while receiving a microdermabrasion too. Because your scar has color in it, it will actually help improve this and lighten it. Make sure you point it out to your technician so she/he can use the right solution (I'd pick Lumixyl) to help alleviate the discoloration.
