Are different peels designed to repair certain types of scarring?
Superficial chemical peels are really not designed to treat facial scarring. Chemical peels can help in decreasing the appearance of facial scars by tightening the skin of the face and thereby tightening and lightening up the appearance of the scar but this is more of a positive side effect of the chemical peel rather than the objective of using chemical peels for scar reduction. Deeper chemical peels can, however, significantly reduce the appearance of acne scars in the proper individuals.
