Chemical peels are one of the most popular treatments for acne, especially for patients that choose not to take a long course of antibiotics that can have numerous unforeseen side effects. A chemical peel is an acid solution that breaks the bond between dead skin cells causing the skin to peel. Avalon Laser offers a variety of different chemical peels such as Salicylic Acid, Jessner or TCA to help reduce the severity of the break outs. A Salicylic Acid peel exfoliates the skin as well as reduces the inflammation caused by acne. Jessner peel is a combination of resocrinol, lactic acid and salicylic acid, this solution helps to decrease oil production and open clogged sebaceous follicles to minimize the amount of acne break outs. The TCA peel is a deeper peel that is ideal for patients with post acne scars to help reduce the appearance of post inflammatory pigmentation and increase the production of collagen. A chemical peel is also a great treatment for uneven skin tone, pigmentation, large pores and poor skin texture.
