Acne is the result of hair follicles (tiny holes in the skin) becoming blocked. Too much of an oil substance called ‘sebum’ is then produced and this mixes with dead skin – creating whiteheads, blackheads, and pimples. While usually associated with teenagers, acne affects people of every age. Acne is one of the most common and distressing skin conditions to suffer from, and in some cases can cause scaring.
At Luxe Skin, Dr Q can offer chemical skin peel treatments to help with reducing the appearance of acne, as well as helping with acne scaring.
The primary treatment for issues with acne are chemical skin peels.

Chemical Skin Peels
A light chemical skin peel can be a superb way to treat mild to severe cases of acne – and can be provided to any part of the face where acne is an issue.
There are four kinds of chemical skin peels, though all work by ‘exfoliating’, not truly peeling, the skin. A combination of dilute acids allows for dead skin cells (as well as excess oil) to be shed from the face.
