Many patients who have had acne blemishes in the past deal with the aftereffects: scarring. Acne scarring can result in shallow marks and pitting on the skin that can greatly affect the texture and tone. Many patients who have experienced scarring want smoother, more supple skin. One way to achieve effective acne scar treatment in Orlando is by undergoing a chemical peel at Pure Skin Dermatology.

Dr. Grayman of Pure Skin Dermatology is proud to offer patients a solution to their acne scars. Chemical peel treatment is a wonderful, proven method that is effective at reducing or removing acne scars. Mild to moderate scarring can be reduced with an effective chemical peel. This is because the upper layer of the skin is removed, which brings forth fresher, newer skin cells. Chemical peels can also address other skin conditions including:

  • Active acne blemishes
  • Age and sun spots
  • Discoloration and uneven skin tone
  • Damage from sun exposure
  • Melasma

A chemical peel is done in the office of Dr. Grayman and it uses a special combination of ingredients to help in rejuvenating the skin. Various acids can be used on the skin and left on for a short period of time, then removed. This will result in the peeling and rejuvenation of the skin cells, and over time, can improve the skin’s texture and tone. Chemical peels range from mild to moderate, and recovery time is dependent on the strength of the peel.

Patients are required to take extra care with their skin after a chemical peel. Sun exposure should be avoided and sunscreen should be used every day to ensure protection of the newly exposed skin cells. Patients will notice over several days a gradual reduction in the depth and appearance of acne scars.

Dr. Grayman provides several treatments for patients in her practice including chemical peels, facials, and microdermabrasion that can help in improving the overall skin texture and tone while treating bothersome skin conditions.
