If you’ve suffered from severe acne or even cystic acne, we’ve got something that might interest you. From such a young age, everyone often shares the same insecurity, acne. While some are lucky enough to grow out of it and not have to stress over it for years, others struggle with it far into adulthood. Something that has helped those with acne for years has been chemical peels.
First, what is cystic acne, and how do you know if you’ve been suffering from it? Cystic acne is different from regular acne due to it being inflamed. Acne occurs when oil and dead skin cells clog skin pores. With cystic acne, bacteria also gets into the pores, causing swelling or inflammation. The inflammation ends up causing frequently painful, pus-filled pimples to begin forming underneath the skin, deep enough. Hence, it’s more challenging to clear out from your pores. Cystic acne is the most severe type of acne, and that’s why our chemical peels can help alleviate some of this stress from your skin.
Your next question is probably something along the lines of, so, what is a chemical peel? A chemical peel is when your skin is soaked and treated with an ointment to help develop healthier skin. This deep clean process may result in some redness for a few months after treatment but will ultimately be clearer and stronger.
