Do chemical peels help diminish acne?

Tags:woman age 35-44 acne acne scarring peeling

I'm 35 and I started to develop acne at 16. I went to various doctors who prescribed me numerous treatments from oral anti-biotics to green tea masks and facials. The only thing I haven't tried yet is a chemical peel. But is it recommended for acne too? I know someone that had a chemical peel for her deep acne scars, but I need it to treat actual acne, not just scars and blemishes.

I might suggest a chemical peel called VI PEEL- purify, specially designed for acne. You might look into a Cooltouch laser treatment as it is FDA approved for active acne

best of luck
