AESTHETIC DERMATOLOGY – PEELS
Can a peel be used to treat acne scars?
Yes, it can, except when scars are very deep. In addition, the peel can be performed at different levels: shallow, medium and deep, so it can act on different types of scars. We must keep in mind, however, that the deeper the treatment acts, the greater will be its effect and also its side effects.
Peels are not a treatment of risk if carried out by expert hands, such as that of our dermatologists, but they do have certain side effects such as swelling, noticeable redness, blisters and scaling that can last 7 to 14 days. In fact, some peels may require skin healing treatments, with special masks.
In any case our specialists will explain all the procedures to be followed after undergoing this type of treatment such as, for example, avoiding sun exposure for some time.
