Acne Center of Michigan is proud to offer a variety of chemical peels for the improvement of active acne and acne scarring. Chemical peels open clogged pores, penetrate oil glands, and reduce bacterial counts, with improvement of pimples and zits. They can also improve the dark discoloration that develops after acne resolves, especially in skin of color. And finally chemical peels can improve certain types of acne scarring.
See below for the recommended chemical peel based on skin condition:
Acne (active acne with blackheads, pimples, and cysts)
Dark spots from Acne
Active acne during pregnancy (after 12 weeks)
Salicylic peels are the workhorse peel for acne.
These are mainly for patients with active acne. You do not need to stop any of your medications before the chemical peel. These are done every two weeks. Patients will need at least 3 to 6 chemical peels for optimal results. The peeling is usually invisible, and you can go back to work or school right away.

A more intense, medium depth chemical peel that treats:
– Acne with hyperpigmentation
– Acne scarring
This is a more robust and intensive peel for patients who want to see actual peeling. The peeling usually starts 48 to 72 hours after the chemical peel and last for about 3 to 4 days. These are painless and require no anesthesia. Preparation of the skin in the form of retinoids, and sometimes bleaching agents are recommended for several weeks prior to the chemical peel. Also, patients must avoid direct sunlight for one week prior and one to two weeks after the peel. And they must stop using any retinoid for five days prior to the peel. An aftercare kit is provided.
$250 per peel – A normal series is three peels
(There are four other types of VI peels. However, the Precision plus is optimal for acne.)
A combination of salicylic acid, lactic acid, and resorcinol
This is a slightly more intense peel than the beta lift peel, and there will be actual peeling starting two days later. A mild burning sensation is experienced during the peel. Anesthesia is not necessary. Downtime is like the VI Peel. Retinoids must be stopped five days prior.
$125 per peel
These are chemical peels for patients who are at least 12 weeks pregnant, and who have active acne such as papules pimples, pustules, and clogged pores. This is also called a “lunchtime peel” as patients can immediately go back to work, since the peeling is usually invisible. Preparation of the skin in the form of glycolic acid pads is recommended for several weeks prior to the chemical peel to ensure the patient skin can tolerate the peel.
These are typically performed every two weeks.
$60 per peel
