Can Chemical Peels Help with Acne Scarring?

Acne marks (or scars) are more than just a reminder of past breakouts; they can also significantly affect self-esteem and skin confidence. Fortunately, advancements in dermatological treatments offer several options for those looking to minimize these reminders. 

One of the most effective treatments is the chemical peel. Let’s explore how chemical peels can address acne scarring and what you should know before considering this treatment.

What is a Chemical Peel?

A chemical peel involves applying a chemical solution to the skin, which causes it to exfoliate and eventually peel off. 

This process reveals new, smoother skin beneath that is often less scarred and more vibrant. Chemical peels can vary in intensity—light, medium, or deep—depending on the specific chemical solution used and the duration of its application.

How Do Chemical Peels Work on Acne Scars?

Chemical peels help reduce acne scarring by removing the outer layer of the skin to a depth that promotes the regeneration of new skin. 

Medium to deep peels are often more beneficial for scarring, as they reach deeper into the skin layers where most scars reside. These peels encourage the production of collagen and elastin, essential proteins that help skin regain its texture and elasticity.

Chemical Peel Before and After What to Expect

Before undergoing a chemical peel, it’s crucial to consult with a dermatologist or a skincare professional who can evaluate your skin type and scarring severity. This step ensures that the peel is tailored to your specific needs.

After the treatment, patients can expect some downtime, depending on the peel’s intensity. Light peels might only cause mild redness and flaking, while deeper peels may require a recovery period during which the skin heals and regenerates. The results, typically seen once the skin has fully healed, often include diminished scar appearance, enhanced skin texture, and skin tone.

How Much is a Chemical Peel?

The cost of a chemical peel can vary widely based on the type of peel, the professional performing the procedure, and the geographic location. 

Light peels may be more affordable and require multiple sessions, while deeper peels, though more costly, usually provide more dramatic results in fewer treatments.

Our Peel Treatments at Evolution Health & Wellness

Evolution Health and Wellness offers a range of specialized peel treatments tailored to address specific skin concerns and conditions. 

Whether you want to rejuvenate ageing skin, correct discolouration, or treat sensitive conditions, our expert team guides you through our diverse options.

Jessner’s Peel

Our Jessner’s Peel is customized to meet each client’s unique needs. For those with more sensitive skin or specific allergies, our Hydroquinone-Free PCA Peel is an excellent choice. 

It’s specially formulated for ethnic skin or anyone sensitive to hydroquinone, offering a gentle yet effective treatment. The Hydroquinone PCA Peel promotes an even skin tone and a clear complexion. 

For more demanding, more resilient skin or those dealing with cystic acne or asphyxiated skin (dry on the surface, oily underneath), the Hydroquinone + Resorcinol variant provides a robust solution, delivering deeper exfoliation and dramatic improvements in skin tone and texture.

TCA Peel

Our TCA Peel range includes options for all skin types, even those with the most rare and sensitive skin:

  • Sensi Peel: This peel is perfect for delicate skin types, including those prone to rosacea. Combining trichloroacetic acid (TCA) and lactic acid, it smooths, brightens, and evens out the complexion while diminishing fine lines and melasma.
  • Ultra-Peel: Tailored for individuals with dry, uneven skin texture, this peel enhances skin hydration, reduces fine lines, and evens skin tone with minimal downtime.
  • MD Peel: A medium-depth peel that offers profound rejuvenation. It utilizes higher concentrations of TCA and lactic acid to improve skin’s appearance significantly, targeting fine lines, wrinkles, and uneven skin tone.

The “No Peel” Peel

Awarded Best in Best-Tested Skin Booster 2022 by Good Housekeeping, the “No Peel” Peel offers a unique experience with no visible peeling and no downtime. 

It’s perfect for all skin types. It employs a blend of exfoliating acids and soothing ingredients to gently renew the skin, even tone, remove impurities, and decongest pores, enhancing overall skin brightness and clarity.

Is This the Right Treatment for Me?

Choosing the right chemical peel is essential for achieving the best results. During your consultation, we will thoroughly evaluate your skin to determine which peel best suits your skin type and addresses your concerns.

How Often Do I Need a Chemical Peel Treatment?

The frequency of chemical peel treatments can vary based on the specific peel and your skin’s individual needs. Many clients achieve optimal results with a series of treatments.


During your consultation, we will outline a personalized treatment plan that specifies the number of sessions recommended to attain your desired outcomes.

Are Chemical Peels Right for You?

Chemical peels are generally safe for all skin types; however, they are most effective on lighter skin tones due to the reduced risk of hyperpigmentation. 

Anyone considering a chemical peel should discuss their skin’s characteristics and any previous skin conditions or treatments with their skincare provider. This discussion will help avoid potential side effects and achieve the best results.

Post-Peel Care

After a chemical peel, it’s essential to care for your skin carefully to maximize results and minimize complications. 

This includes using gentle skincare products, avoiding direct sunlight, and following all aftercare instructions provided by your skincare professional. Proper aftercare supports effective healing and can significantly impact the outcome of your treatment.
