Chemical Peels For Acne

An acne peel is a chemical treatment that removes the top layer of skin to reveal new, healthy skin underneath. It can treat acne, acne scars, and other skin blemishes.

Chemical peels have different strengths, and the type of peel used will depend on the severity of the acne and the skin type. A mild peel may be used for mild acne, while a stronger peel may be used for more severe acne.

The peel exfoliates the top layer of skin, cleaning pores, removing bacteria and debris, scars and pigmentation, allowing for the reveal of healthy glowing skin cells below.

Treating Acne With Chemcial Peels

There are several types of chemical peels available for treating acne.

Glycolic acid is a type of alpha-hydroxy acid that is perfect for superficial acne lesions.

Salicylic acid is another common option that helps reduce pore blockages and breakouts.

Trichloroacetic acid (TCA) is often used for medium-depth peels, while Jessner’s solution is often used for deeper peels.


The type of chemical peel chosen will depend on the severity of the acne and the desired results. Superficial peels are best used as an add-on to regular acne treatments, while medium-depth or deep peels may be more effective in treating more severe cases of acne or scarring.

It’s important to discuss with Dr Natasha which type of peel would be most suitable for your particular condition and what precautions you should take before and after treatment.

Why choose skin NV

Professional skin care solutions from a qualified doctor.

Step-by-step procedure


Prior To The Treatment

During the consultation, Dr Verma will dedicate her time to gaining a comprehensive understanding of your skin journey. This thorough assessment aims to identify factors contributing to and worsening your acne condition. By adopting a holistic approach, she will strive to enhance your current situation and offer a sustainable long-term solution while addressing any associated side effects like scarring, uneven skin texture, and hyperpigmentation. Dr Verma's expertise and care will ensure a professional and soothing experience throughout your treatment.


During The Treatment

After thoroughly cleansing your skin, a carefully selected chemical peel system solution will be applied per your specific skin concerns and overall skin health. This system is designed to delicately disrupt the connections between the healthy skin cells and the outermost layer of superficial dead skin cells. As a result, the dead skin layer will naturally shed, unveiling a revitalised complexion characterised by a healthy and even-toned appearance. Rest assured that our professional approach will ensure a calming and comfortable experience throughout the process.


What To Expect

During the treatment, you may experience a mild tickling or tingling sensation, which typically subsides within a few minutes. Following the session, you might observe temporary redness and mild sensitivity, which is expected to fade away within 24-48 hours. It is possible to notice dryness and flakiness in specific areas of the treated skin but rest assured that these will naturally slough off within 2-3 days, revealing a gorgeous, radiant and brighter complexion.



We advise against exposing the treated area to high temperatures, rough towels, or abrasive skincare products to protect the delicate, healthy skin beneath the superficial dead skin layer. Instead, opt for a gentle skincare routine, lukewarm water, and regular sunscreen application to create an environment where your new skin can flourish. Dr Verma emphasises avoiding pulling or picking at dry skin, as this can lead to stubborn scarring. Following these guidelines will actively support the rejuvenation process and allow your skin to thrive.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the recovery time for a chemical peel?

The recovery time for a chemical peel varies depending on the strength of the peel and the individual's skin type. Some people may experience redness, swelling, and irritation for a few days after a chemical peel. Others may experience more severe side effects, such as blistering or scarring.

How often should I get a chemical peel for acne?

The frequency of your treatments will depend on the type of peel you receive and your individual needs. Generally speaking, it's recommended that you wait at least four weeks between treatments.

Is a chemical peel good for acne?

Chemical peels are a popular skin treatment that can help reduce the appearance of wrinkles, discolouration, and scars. They work by rapidly exfoliating the skin, removing dead skin cells and excess oil that can clog pores and cause breakouts. Chemical peels can also be used to reduce the appearance of acne scarring. With this procedure, a chemical solution is applied to the skin, which causes it to blister and peel off, revealing smoother and more even-toned skin underneath.
