Persistent oily, acne-prone skin can be annoying and embarrassing. Strong and penetrating, our professional-grade Salicylic Acid Peel deeply cleans pores while exfoliating the skin, removing old and damaged skin – leaving behind a tighter, firmer, and smoother you.
Naturally derived from willow bark, salicylic acid is a highly effective superficial peeling agent, helping to reduce oil and penetrating deeply to cleanse clogged pores. Providing its own organic balance, salicylic acid’s antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory properties, soothe and heal your skin while aggressively exfoliating.
During treatment, the top layer of skin is chemically encouraged to peel, opening obstructed follicles and exfoliating dead skin cells, facilitating a natural return to the normal skin cell replacement cycle.
More than just a treatment for acne, Salicylic acid peels are known to improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, texture and pigmentation. A series of salicylic acid peel treatments can aid in fading dark spots and discolorations like melasma, freckles, and post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (that discoloration left behind after a pimple heals).
A series of treatments is generally necessary to achieve the desired results. Some patients may need more treatments, some less. The number of peels necessary will depend on the severity of the specific skin condition or concern being addressed.
Most patients experience some facial redness following a Salicylic Peel. This generally subsides in a few hours. For some individuals, facial redness can linger for up to several days following treatment.
Patients being treated with a salicylic acid peel for active acne may experience some post-peel purging. Treated skin may also turn dry and flaky following the peel. Some light peeling may occur. Your Skincredible provider will discuss all pre and post treatment instructions and expectations prior to your peel as well as any follow-up treatments that may be necessary.
