Control Acne with a Superficial Chemical Peel, Part 1

We have all been there: acne and pimples can be a real hassle, especially when making a good impression matters. Now, there is a simple, safe, and effective way to control breakouts. In Englewood, dermatology clinics offer light chemical peels as part of their skin treatment services. Learn more about this treatment option below.

Don’t let the name scare you away: a “chemical peel” does not make your skin come off! Instead, the procedure involves a special solution, normally composed of salicylic acid that quickly exfoliates your skin. The exfoliation process allows dead skin cells to shed easily, preventing them and excess oil from clogging your pores. As a result, you are less likely to form pimples.

The superficial chemical peel is an excellent supplement to your daily acne treatment routine. In many circles, this procedure is known as a “lunchtime peel” since it takes place within the span of a lunch break: a testament to how seamless the results are.

Colorado Skin Care offers chemical peels as one of our acne treatment options. We ensure the procedure is safe and effective and will happily answer any questions you may have before or after the chemical peel. If you are ready to finally kick acne to the curb, contact our Englewood dermatology clinic today at (303) 740-4883.
