I personally like more lightweight Peels and not deep peels for acne control. There are some at home peels that can help with your acne tremendously. Along with other topicals the use of these peels can markedly improve your acne as I've seen in many people.

Most often a combination approach is needed to deal with acne breakouts. I suggest a formal consultation with a cosmetic dermatologist who is an expert in lasers, peels, and skin care to determine the best regimen for you.  Best, Dr. Emer.
