Chemical Peels and Acne

Acne and the scars it leaves behind can be embarrassing for some people. Acne can reduce self-esteem, be painful, and cause significant disruption to a person’s life and happiness.

Deep acne scars, moderate acne scars, and minor acne scars can be improved with chemical peels. If you have acne scars, chemical peels are a great way to fade those away to reveal healthy new skin. But did you know that you can get a chemical peel even if you have active acne? Chemical peels are a wonderful treatment for red pimples, blackheads, whiteheads, and even the dreaded cystic acne. A chemical peel for acne treatment works by eliminating the dry skin that can aggravate acne or even cause breakouts. It also clears away layers of dead skin, making it easier for acne to clear up.

Our chemical face peels are formulated for your skin’s needs—for example, if you have active acne, we will likely do either a glycolic or salicylic peel as they have anti-inflammatory properties that prevent the growth of bacteria that leads to acne and even reduce skin oil secretions. Peels also improve the texture of your skin, which helps to reduce the appearance of blemishes as they heal.

Chemical peels are a great preventative tool for acne-sufferers as well because they get rid of the oils and dead skin cells that are trapped in the surface of your skin. These trapped particles create deep blockages that lead to painful cystic acne—clearing your pores with a chemical peel is a great preventive skin care measure.

Microdermabrasion Featuring The DiamondTome™ Resurfacing Treatment

Microdermabrasion facial treatment exfoliates the topmost layer of skin, leaving it more supple and vibrant by promoting the growth of healthy new skin cells. At Summit Skin & Vein Care, our microdermabrasion treatments are administered by a trained aesthetician or nurse using the DiamondTome™ Resurfacing treatment. It is a crystal-free, physician-grade, non-invasive, and pain-free treatment that requires no downtime. The DiamondTome™ wand removes the topmost layer of skin by gently exfoliating the skin with natural diamond chips, while at the same time vacuuming away the dead skin cells. This is a safe procedure that doesn’t require general anesthesia.

Physicians regard DiamondTome™ as being more gentle and effective than other exfoliating systems, even at higher settings. The length of the treatment and number of treatments vary depending on the skin type and condition. Results are gradual but highly effective. Most people experience softer, smoother skin after their first microdermabrasion treatment. There is little doubt that microdermabrasion can get you the desired outcome you are looking for—improved skin, healthy-looking skin, greater self-confidence—without recovery time.

Why consider a chemical peel or microdermabrasion?

Microdermabrasion and chemical peels can reduce the effects of aging on the skin’s surface. Years of sun exposure and the aging process take their toll on the face, creating lines, wrinkles, and changes in texture and color. Other areas of the body—such as the neck, chest, arms, and hands—can also experience these changes over time. Acne sufferers can greatly benefit from one or both of these procedures.

Getting a chemical peel or microdermabrasion also stimulates the elastic tissue beneath the surface of the skin, resulting in a healthier and firmer appearance. These treatments are affordable compared to other treatment methods, such as laser treatments or surgical options, which can be more invasive procedures. If you are looking for a gentle treatment option with few potential risks, then a chemical peel or a microdermabrasion treatment may be right for you.

Chemical Peel vs. Microdermabrasion

The main difference between a chemical peel and microdermabrasion is that a chemical peel is a chemical exfoliation technique and microdermabrasion is a physical exfoliation. While the word “chemical” has some negative connotations, when it comes to exfoliation, we are using safe, naturally-occurring substances. The most commonly used chemical exfoliators are Alpha Hydroxy acids (AHAs) and Beta Hydroxy Acids (BHAs). If you are unsure of whether a chemical or a physical exfoliation would be best for your skin, simply give us a call and we would be happy to consult with you. We can help you come up with a skin treatment plan that works for you.

Is it safe to get both a chemical peel and microdermabrasion?

If you are having the services performed by professionals like those at Summit Skin &Vein Care, it is perfectly safe to have both of these procedures performed. In fact, for optimal results, you may want to consider medical microdermabrasion. This is a chemical peel followed by a crystal-free microdermabrasion. This procedure is a great way to alleviate certain conditions for smoother, healthier skin.

We understand that getting a series of treatments may be intimidating, but you truly have nothing to worry about. Microdermabrasion and chemical peels have limited side effects, making these treatment methods some of the safest skin care options out there. A person’s skin can benefit greatly from exfoliation, and with the right skin care specialist, you can finally have the skin you’ve been waiting for. Improving your skin’s appearance can improve your life.
