As if acne breakouts weren't bad enough, dealing with their aftermath in the form of acne scars can be equally as frustrating. The best way to treat acne scarring all depends on the kind of scars you have. Chemical Peels work great at getting rid of pigmentation (brown marks) left behind after an acne lesion has cleared up. During a chemical peel treatment, a peeling agent, such as glycolic acid, is applied to the skin for a brief amount of time to treat and remove the top layer of skin. By removing that top layer, the acne scar is also lifted away. Patients who have received peels for acne scar treatment might have slight redness after the treatment, but other than that there is no down time.
