Chemical peels for acne

Acne is usually a condition attributed to hormonal changes during puberty. However, it is a condition that can affect both men and women at any stage in life and can be caused by several factors. Chemical peels for acne work by gently removing dead skin cells, to stimulate the growth and turnover of new healthy cells to improve the condition of the skin and treat several concerns.  

Now, acne can be extremely frustrating, and because everybody is different it will look different for each individual. For some, it may manifest as angry spots in specific areas, for others it may be a severe breakout all over the skin. Unfortunately, for many people, acne may also lead to blackheads, whiteheads, red lumps (papules), or pus-filled spots which may lead to scarring.  

Acne can affect any area on the body with larger oil glands, such as the face, back, and, neck. It develops when sebum and dead skin cells block the hair follicles, causing bacteria to form. This bacterium can trigger inflammation and infection which may lead to an acne breakout.

The most common acne triggers are genetics and hormonal changes, but it can be impacted by several other factors including: 

– Sun damage

– Lifestyle choices

– Environmental factors

– Skincare and makeup 

Chemical peels for acne are one of the most popular, and effective treatment methods on the market. Here at Ness Aesthetics, we have a range of different chemical peels available and will invite you in for a consultation to determine which solution is right for you to address your concern.
