Acne scars can be frustrating and difficult to get rid of, but with the right treatment, you can improve their appearance and achieve smoother, clearer skin. Chemical peels are a popular treatment option for acne scars, as they can help to exfoliate dead skin cells, stimulate collagen production, and reduce the appearance of scars.
At Skin Glow Intensive Aesthetic Clinic, we offer a variety of chemical peels to target different types of acne scars. Here are some of the best chemical peels for acne scars, according to our experts:
Mandelic and Lactic Acid (light); Salicylic and Glycolic Acid (light-medium); Jessner and VI (medium); TCA (medium-deep); Phenol (deep).
- Glycolic Acid Peel: Glycolic acids are the safest peels for acne scars. It works by sloughing off the middle and top layers of skin and eradicating dead skin cells. This type of peel is great for mild to moderate acne scars. It uses glycolic acid, a type of alpha-hydroxy acid (AHA), to exfoliate dead skin cells and stimulate collagen production. It can help to reduce the appearance of acne scars, fine lines, and wrinkles.
- Salicylic Acid Peel: Salicylic acid is a beta-hydroxy acid (BHA) that is effective at penetrating deep into the pores to unclog them. It is great for acne-prone skin, as it can help to reduce inflammation and prevent future breakouts. It can also help to reduce the appearance of acne scars.
- TCA Peel: Trichloroacetic acid (TCA) is a medium-strength chemical peel that can be used to treat moderate to severe acne scars. It works by penetrating deep into the skin to stimulate collagen production and reduce the appearance of scars.
- Jessner Peel: This type of peel uses a combination of salicylic acid, lactic acid, and resorcinol to exfoliate dead skin cells and reduce the appearance of acne scars. It is great for those with oily or acne-prone skin, as it can help to unclog pores and prevent future breakouts.
