How to Treat Acne with a Chemical Peel

Superficial chemical peels can be a great way to treat your acne. When you opt for a light-duty chemical peel, you can experience exceptional results with little to no recovery time. Often referred to as “lunchtime peels,” they can be completed quickly, and you can get back to your routine in no time at all.

During a light-duty chemical peel, one of our Colorado dermatology specialists will exfoliate the skin using an alpha or beta hydroxy acid. When received consistently, the peels can significantly improve mild to moderately severe acne cases. They also come with the added benefit of smoothing out any fine lines or wrinkles on the face.

Though these peels come with many benefits, it is recommended that you continue your daily acne treatments alongside them for the best results. Light-duty chemical peels can reduce pore blockage and breakouts; they are not formulated to treat the root of your problem.

If you are interested in receiving a chemical peel as part of your acne treatment routine, contact the experts at Colorado Skin Care. Our team of experienced dermatologists will work with you to help develop the best plan of action to treat your specific case. Contact us today at (303) 740-4883 to schedule an appointment.
