Will a Chemical Face Peel Help for Redness and Acne Scars?

I had acne and after many treatments I have now got rid of the ane on the surface but there is redness under my cheeks still and some scars. Will a chemical face peel help?

Peels for redness


Typically, chemical peels are not indicated for facial redness. The chemical peel is ideally suited to peel away sun damaged skin and help fine lines and hyperpigmentation. I would not recommend a chemical peel for facial redness.
