Do chemical peels really remove acne scars? (Photo)

There are many ways to help treat acne scars from lasers such as V-Beam and eMatrix to chemical peels. Please consult an expert in scar treatments. Best, Dr. Green
Chemical peeling and other resurfacing modalities such as lasers are generally the foundation of this multiple modality approach. These resurfacing modalities work by causing a very controlled injury to the skin that induces a collagen healing response.
To ensure you are receiving the highest level of care, seek out a dermatologic surgeon, oculoplastic surgeon, facial plastic surgeon or plastic surgeon who is board certified and fellowship trained in one of these "core four" cosmetic specialties.
