Salicylic Acid, a Beta-Hydroxy Acid (BHA), is a very effective peel, oil reducer, and pore cleanser. This chemical peel is often done as an add-on during a facial but can also be done as a standalone service. Salicylic acid is one of the most effective ingredients to combat oily skin, as it dissolves the sebum in the skin that triggers breakouts. Salicylic’s exceptional ability to penetrate the hair follicle allows it to clear pores at a deeper level particularly helpful for treating acne and blackheads.
At a medium strength of 30%, salicylic acid acts as a peeling agent dissolving the top layer of the epidermis treating ingrown hairs, acne, wrinkles, and fine lines while improving texture and clarity. Including both anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial properties this peel is an excellent choice for improving acne prone skin.Contrary to its name not all patients will experience visible peeling. Lack of peeling is not an indication that the peel was not successful. With or without noticeable peeling you are still receiving all the benefits of the peel, such as stimulation of collagen, improvement of skin tone and texture, fine lines, and pigmentation. Our salicylic acid peel also contains Pentavitin to maintain the skin’s physical moisture barrier while smoothing and plumping skin making it acceptable for even dry, mature, and sensitive skin types.
A single salicylic peel will brighten and smooth skin, but a series of peels is more effective for significant results. Schedule your complimentary consultation today to meet one of our experienced, skilled aesthetic professionals to discuss the best solution for your skincare concerns.
