Does a chemical peel seem like a good choice for this?

Question: I’d like to get a smoother texture to improve my skin and also improve some pigmentation issues and acne scars. Does a chemical peel seem like a good choice for this?

Answer: A chemical peel can certainly be an excellent choice for improvement in discolorations and textural abnormalities of the skin and even acne scarring if the peel is deep enough to improve this.  Most peels, however, are not going to be deep enough to improve the acne scarring and you would need a very aggressive approach to make any sort of significant visual improvement in this problem; nonetheless, frequently by performing more superficial peels we can make a visible improvement in the texture and discolorations of the skin and this in turn makes the skin look healthier and can give the illusion that the acne scarring is improved.
