There are several chemical peels that are helpful for acne-prone skin. Chemical peels are peeling agents that remove the superficial layers of the skin. In patients with acne-prone skin, chemical peels can clear out clogged pores, reduce comedone (blackhead and whitehead) formation and even help to improve the appearance of post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation. Dr. Schweiger mostly commonly recommends Jessner’s Peels, Salicylic Peels and Glycolic Acid Peels for patients with acne. Though these chemical peels are used to treat acne, patients will also see an improvement in their fine lines and sun damage.
