Skin Peels Can Actively Alleviate Acne Appearances
Acne is a very common skin condition that affects millions of people. While many people think that acne is nothing more than pimples, a person with acne can have many blemishes on their skin including blackheads, whiteheads, pustules, cysts and nodules. In addition to the having visible blemishes, a person with acne can also develop dark spots and even scars on the skin when the acne heals. Fortunately, chemical peels/skin peels can help with acne as these peels have been found effective at keeping pores clean.
Most acne occurs due to dirt, debris and skin oils accumulating in the pores wherein they become clogged. When a chemical peel is applied to the skin, it works to clear the pores which can prevent, reduce or lessen the scarring to the skin.
Keratolytic therapy/treatment is a term used to describe a chemical skin peel. Through the use of chemicals such as salicylic acid, glycolic acid or lactic acid, keratolytic therapy can assist in removing dead skin cells by softening the clumps and causing them to shed from the skin. The results can be softer, smoother skin the looks and feels good.
In order to get the most out of a chemical/skin peel, it’s important that it has a strong exfoliating effect. That is why Dermalure’s uses pharmaceutical-grade products. Our peels are available in varying types of concentration because each person’s skin type is unique.
Choosing a Chemical Peel/Skin Peel
It is important to speak with your dermatologist to see what type of skin peel would be the most appropriate for your skin. Then, with that advice in mind, it is advisable to start out with a lower strength acid. Generally speaking, the stronger acids remove more layers of the skin. These stronger acids may be appropriate if you have tougher skin that needs to be removed in order to get to the softer skin underneath. But it is important to start with a milder acid that does not peel away skin any deeper than necessary. This is why you should always consult with your dermatologist before choosing a chemical peel. Your dermatologist can tell you what level of acid you should begin with.
