Chemical peels can help with acne
The peels help removed dead skin and unplug pores. However, as acne is due to oil production, plugged pores, and a bacteria that eats the oil, it is important to treat your acne from many different angles. We typically have you on a vitamin A cream to unplug the pores, a topical that kills or suppresses the bacteria, and other medications that can lighten the spots after acne or ones that can control the oil. It usually takes 6 months to clear acne on a good regimen, and 8-12 months to lighten the spots. Ask your Dermatologic Surgeon what is right for you.
Chemical Peels for Acne
Acne is multifactorial. I would suggest you go to a dermatologist for consultation to see if your persistent acne has a hormonal etiology. It may also be that you need antibiotics in addition to the chemical peels. Please let me know what happens.
