Why use skin peel treatment if you have acne?
Such skin care is carried out by a doctor, most often a dermatologist or a cosmetic doctor. The first consultation is key for addressing all your questions as well as fixing a schedule of sessions and getting an idea of the cost. Dermatological peels are often only partially reimbursed by French social security and/or mutual insurance companies.
Acne peels: the process
On the day itself, the doctor applies an acid preparation to the skin, which is why it is sometimes called a chemical peel for acne. The doctor leaves the preparation in place for a few minutes, then neutralizes it and applies a soothing cream.
Acne peels, before and after
In the days or even weeks following the peel session, you’ll need to hydrate your skin and protect it from the sun until it has completely regenerated.
Can you use an acne peel at home?
On the other hand, you can use cosmetic care products based on fruit acids in small quantities to fight against marks, imperfections and wrinkles. These treatments are particularly indicated in the case of acne in adults.
