Types of Chemical Peels for Acne

Many people will do anything to be more beautiful or more handsome than they already are. And for many people, it is worth the price they pay both financially and physically. And while no one is the same or goes through the same things, one thing everyone has to deal with at some point or another is acne. People and doctors studied and tested for years to find something that would help and, while regular cleansers are great and do work to an extent, chemical peels for acne seem to work the best. There are a couple different types of chemical peels available. One works on all types of skin while the other is more intense and should not be used on sensitive skin. Both of them help decrease the amount of acne you have.

Superficial Peel

The superficial peel is the less intense option available. It can be used on most, if not all, types of skin. First, your face will be cleaned before the chemical solution is applied. The doctor may advise you to have a test area peeled first to make sure you are okay with the results. Once you have decided you are ready, the chemical is applied onto your face with gauze, a small brush, or a cotton swab of some kind. The chemical is then left to do its work for several minutes before it is removed with water or alcohol. The chemical will burn some while it is on your face, so using a small, handheld fan can help ease the discomfort.
Medium Peel

A medium peel is not the strongest peel available, but it is still an intense surgery. The process for both the medium peel and the deep peel are similar to the process of the superficial peel; however, the chemical is left on longer with the more intense peels so it can work deeper. Because it is a chemical working its way through your skin, it could become highly uncomfortable, so the doctor may offer some kind of oral sedative to help you deal with the pain and anxiety during the procedure. Whichever peel you choose to use, the chemical peels for acne will help you look and feel much better once you recover from it.
