Salicylic Chemical Peels
Salicylic Acid is one of the latest products designed to improve the appearance of aging skin and to treat acne. Dermatologists now agree that Salicylic Acid is a superior exfoliant that can dramatically improve the appearance of aging, sun-damaged skin without the irritation associated with Alpha Hydroxy Acid.
How does a Salicylic peel work?
Salicylic acid is a beta hydroxy peel. It is self-neutralizing and has limited penetration. Similar to the Glycolic peel, the Salicylic peel promotes the exfoliation of the outer surface of the skin.
What are the results?
There will be a cleaning of clogged pores and exfoliation of oily areas of the face. It may also help fade superficial age spots and areas of pigmentation. The overall texture of the skin will be improved.
