Question:

I have always had horrible acne and now I have horrible acne scars.  I am very pale with sensitive skin and I would like to know if a chemical peel would be safe for me and if it would help with acne scars?

Answer:

The combination of active acne with acne scarring is difficult to treat because the active acne is causing ongoing inflammation in the area.  Having both you would not be a good candidate at this time for the combination therapy using dermabrasion, laser and chemical peel.  You could possibly tolerate a light chemical peel but we are more likely going to treat you with topicals to treat the acne, such as Retin-A or possibly Triple Action Cream (with Hydro-Quinone, Retin-A and a light steroid).
