Role of Peels in Acne

Chemical peels have a role in active acne as well as in improving the appearance of scars.. In acne, there is obstruction to the passage of sebum or oil through the duct of oil forming glands (sebaceous glands). Peels cause a controlled injury to upper layer of skin and its shedding. This decreases the number of comedones and inflammatory lesions.

It improves skin texture thus reducing the appearance of scaring. It also improves skin pigmentation.
