Acne breakouts are aggravating and can cause scars on the face and other parts. Acne scars can be an unwelcome reminder of a painful condition. However, some home remedies and medical treatments can help fade acne scars.
Trichloracetic Acid (TCA) Peels are a deeper peeling and penetrating acid. Their benefits include reducing hyperpigmentation, reducing wrinkles, scars, and dark spots. In addition to treating acne, TCA peels are used to treat age spots and general scarring. Peels using trichloroacetic acid improve skin tone and texture. Various strengths and concentrations are available; however for scaring we recommend starting with our 12.5% TCA Home Peel.

This is a wonderful choice if previous acid treatments have failed. This product contains licorice extract, a powerful botanical skin lightener. Is a gentle acid treatment for sensitive skin. No "downtime", no skin cracking, simply sloughing off of dried sebum and surface skin detritus.
30% Glycolic Acid is used in exfoliating cleansers, toners, and even face masks. But what are the advantages of a glycolic acid peel? A Glycolic Acid Peel at Home may be appealing if you've only ever used glycolic acid in your at-home skincare products.
