Chemical peels can help mild acne, although they seem to be most effective when paired with other treatments. Some studies show up to 50% reduction in acne after a series of chemical peels.
Benzoyl Peroxide has been used for many years as the medical ingredient of choice when treating acne. Benzoyl Peroxide is one of the most effective antibacterial agents used to treat and significantly reduce P bacteria within the skin.
Benzoyl Peroxide also reduces the inflammation associated with acne. For those that suffer with acne, regular use of topical products that contain medical grade Benzoyl Peroxide will greatly reduce the production of oil (sebum) in the skin and clear acne lesions.
Lasting Looks Anti-Aging and Laser Clinic offers acne peels as well as a variety of products to help our patients clear their acne. Most of these products will contain Benzoyl Peroxide in their ingredients. We have found that not only does Benzoyl Peroxide help kill P bacteria in the skin, BP lotion will also help clear blackheads and prevent new acne lesions from forming.
As with all products that contain medical grade ingredients, using them once daily, and then gradually working your way up to twice daily is recommended so that your tolerance for these products can be established.
Benzoyl peroxide should be stopped 3-5 days before facial waxing, hair removal, facial procedures or chemical peels.
