Hi sir I have many dark spots left by acne


Q: Hi sir
I have many dark spots left by acne on cheeks so I tried everything but it didn't fade.I got to know about chemical peel at home so I m currently doing 25% glycolic peel at home which is showing gud improvements.I m using cinthol old soap which was suggested by my ddermatologist and kojivit at night.so please suggest gud face wash and moisturizer so I didn't get breakout after peeling?


A:   Hello. Welcome to ask the doctor.

Chemical peels are very helpful in acne and acne pigmentation reduction.
But I personally advise my patients to get it done by an expert dermatologist. Many a times inappropriate application leads to side effects like burn etc.
You may use moisturiser containing aloe vera, vitamin E 2-3 times per day.
I advice mild face-wash use to my patients with peels.

I hope it helps.
Take care.
