Acne scars please help suggest inexpensive peel?

Medium depth peel. You need a dedicated and well-respected aesthetician to help you with this. I would not try something over-the-counter to save money. It also depends on how deep and extensive the scars are and if your acne is still active. Make sure you have a good skin regimen and acne is under control before pursuing peels. I would recommend tca or glycolic acid peels but find an experienced aesthetician. Read more...
Mechanical abrasion. Mechanical dermabrasion (not micro-) is most effective means of smoothing skin scarred by acne. Chemicals tend to be less effective due to following the scar contours rather than 'planing' the surface to even out the edges. Cost is about the same, and not typically too expensive. See your physician, who can better advise due to varying types and extent of scarring. Read more...

Chemical peels. In short, yes. But that all depends on the depth of the scars, and the type/strength of chemical. Very deep scars are sometimes best treated by excising them first, then resurfacing. Extensive scarring may require repeat treatments, but sometimes a co2 laser or dermabrasion (not to be confused with microdermabrasion) is more effective. This depends greatly on the surgeon's skill.

Neither! Both of the listed options will do little to nothing except lighten your wallet, but the peel, depending on depth, will likely have the best of these two choices. If your acne scars are truly minor, then consider a "real" facial peel, dermabrasion (not microderm), or laser resurfacing. Unless you have a treatment that requires actual healing, there is bound to be little to no improvement at all! Read more...
