Why a Chemical Peel Helps with Acne

chemical peelWe often recommend that our patients at the Clear Clinic undergo a session of medical extractions with a chemical peel.  Dr. Schweiger explains that, "Medical extractions alone are an excellent way to clean out comedones (blackheads and whiteheads) and help to clear acne more quickly.  However, when combined with a chemical peel, medical extractions are an even more effective treatment against acne." Chemical peels are applied to your skin in order to deliver an ingredient directly into your skin and often promote peeling of the skin.  Depending on the type of peel being performed, this process can have many different uses.  When using chemical peels for acne, the peeling agents help to unclog blocked follicles that may otherwise turn into acne lesions. Medical extractions are an important part of the acne treatment process.  During medical extractions, a medical esthetician will steam your skin to open up your pores, and then extract any clogged pores, comedones, and inflammatory acne lesions on the skin.  This process works well when performed immediately before a chemical peel, because the chemical peel helps to further clean excess sebum and debris from the follicles of your skin, which results in clearance of active acne lesions and the prevention of future acne lesions from forming. Chemical peels that are commonly used, in conjunction with medical extractions, for the treatment of acne include salicylic acid peels, glycolic acid peels, and Jessner peels.  Depending on the individual needs of your skin, we will help you to determine which chemical peel is most beneficial for your skin.
