Welcome To HealthcareMagic forum,

Before telling you details about pimples ,let me tell you first about chemical peel.Its a very safe procedure if done by a dermatologist and it can be done even if you have pimples .It works both for pimples and dark spots.The best peel would be salicylic acid peel .
Now, pimples are multifactorial ,and therefore one has to find the exact cause of it.
It can be because of wrong use of soaps to moisturizers or any fairness creams which one is using , to hormonal disturbances if anybody has(esp in females).So,a complete work up is necessary in all patients.Also one should remember that its not a short course treatment,but a matter of say 6 months or so if pimples are sever .
Firstly I would advise you to stop all cosmetic creams if you are using on face.
Also look for other features of hormonal imbalance in body like weight gain,irregular periods,facial hair & scalp hair loss.If you have any of these then get a hormonal profile done.In such cases conventional treatment(antibiotics) for acne would not work,and one needs hormonal tablets to cure acne.
In case you don't have any hormonal imbalance & you don't respond to conventional treatment, then one can take retinoids .Retinoids is a wonderful medicine for acne ,provided one gets all the relevant investigations and takes care of all the precautions associated with it.Along with chemical peel ,this would give you a flawless skin.
I advise you to consult a dermatologist and take proper treatment .
After few days my web site would be launched (,you can get details and pictures about pimples and their treatment.
If you have any further questions you can write back to us.

it is very common to have acne till 28 yrs it is not that you have this problem till that age use the same soap wash your face 3-4 times daily apply an ointment called persol gel after washing and drying the face with clean and dry towel never touch the pimples anytime with hands as it causes the spread of the pimples on your face

Chemical peeling helps but only after all the pimples are cleared and no active pimples on your face It takes some time to clear the marks and pimples dont go for chemical peeling right now my friend got it done though it reduced her marks but she gets pimples now and the marks are left
