Should I try chemical peeling even if I have mild acne

Recommended Posts


Hi everyone

So I’m a 21 years old woman and I’ve had acne since I was 10-11. For years I’ve been using kinda agressive creams on my skin that my doctor prescribed me a long time ago. It kinda works but only on short term. I have very sensitive skin and I try to keep a simple routine but since my skin is very reactive, I don’t want to try a lot of different products. But I’m getting tired of the acne, I have it mostly on my chin and cheeks, it's annoying and it hurts. I also have scars.
Two days ago I went to see a dermatologist to see if they had anything to advise me. The woman I met told me I should try the chemical peeling.
I am wondering if it’s the best method for me. The money’s not the problem, even if I know how expensive it is. But I only have mild acne and I know chemical peelings are aggressive for the skin, I’ve heard it feels like having a big sunburn for 3 months.
So my question is: should I go with it? Or should I wait to see if my skin gets any better with time, since I’m still young and my acne’s not very intense? Did any of you experience peelings? What do you have to say about it?
