Chemical Peels For Acne
Chemical peels are something I’ve never really been that attracted to in part because, chemical peels can really be botched, easily botched, and for any complexion above extremely light, it can be bleaching and damaging to say the least. Chemical peels are most commonly thought of for aging. However, more and more, younger people are using chemicals to treat everything from acne to rosacea to produce smooth skin in general.
It can yield some amazing results if you use it right, because it kills bacteria. When you burn the face and peel away a few layers of skin, you tend to kill off bacteria that may contribute to acne and cause acne rosacea. So it’s something to consider.
However, before you go running to get a chemical peel, consider all of the facts! For one thing, consider the price. You can get a cheaper chemical peel. But the damage that may be incurred if done wrong makes it worth it to pay more, hundreds more even.
But you also have to have the right expectations. Yes, you burn your skin. Yes, it is red, irritated, and not happy immediately after. But this does not mean that you will see immediate results. Accutane causes quite a few problems as well, and it can take as much as 6 months to really show results, and that’s if it shows results at all!
With a chemical peel, you should have pretty severe acne or use something else. Honestly, I think you should use something else in general. However, if you are going to use a chemical peel, it should only be for extremely severe acne. Still, skin will be red, peeling, and many other things that honestly speaking some would compare to acne in general for a while after while skin heals and repairs itself. And you should not go out into the sun without serious protection as the skin will be extremely sensitive.
