Q: Is a chemical peel good for acne?

What our experts say:

Chemical peels are growing again. I like chemical peels in several situations, definitely for acne. There's no age restriction on that. There's the right chemical peel for each skin type and it definitely helps with acne, with the discoloration and also with active lesions. The reason I like peels is because they're very affordable and it gets people interested in their skin care. It's a good starting point for other procedures. I personally think that while lasers are very good, I'll always try a chemical peel first.
