Chemical Peel for Acne Scar in Hyderabad

Chemical peels for acne scars involve using a chemical solution to remove the outer layer of damaged skin, revealing smoother, healthier-looking skin underneath. Chemical peels can be effective for treating acne scars by promoting skin cell turnover and stimulating collagen production.

Some types of chemical peels commonly used for acne scars at Ambrosia Clinic, Hyderabad

  • Salicylic acid peel: Effective for treating mild to moderate acne scars. Salicylic acid is a beta-hydroxy acid (BHA) that helps to unclog pores, exfoliate dead skin cells, and reduce inflammation.
  • Glycolic acid peel: Effective for treating mild to moderate acne scars and can also help improve the texture and tone of the skin. Glycolic acid is an alpha-hydroxy acid (AHA) that helps to exfoliate the skin, reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and improve skin hydration.
  • TCA peel: Trichloroacetic acid (TCA) is a stronger chemical peel that is effective for treating moderate to severe acne scars. TCA peels can help to reduce the appearance of deep acne scars, hyperpigmentation, and other skin imperfections.
