Many individuals suffering with acne turn to chemical peels to improve the condition of the skin. Acne peels are often made of salicylic acid, a common beta hydroxy. Salicylic acid is very effective in treating acne. Acne peels sometimes are even covered by insurance if other medications are not effective. Dr.Meyer has often used peels in some patients wishing not to take Accutane (or the generic versions).
Acne peels work by causing the top layer of the skin to flake and peel off, revealing newer skin underneath. As this exfoliation process takes place, the skin’s appearance is improved. Patients will see less redness and fewer blemishes.
If your acne treatment has not been working, an acne peel may be your answer. Dr. Sharon Meyer is an experienced dermatologist who can determine whether it is right for you. There is no reason to struggle with acne. Call Uptown Dermatology to schedule an appointment today. We look forward to your call!
