Are you struggling with acne or skin discoloration? A salicylic peel can help unclog your pores to reveal clearer and brighter skin. If over-the-counter acne products are ineffective in treating your breakouts, you may want to consider this minimally invasive treatment for clearer skin.

Salicylic Peel Treatment Process

During treatment, the provider will cleanse your skin and apply up to three layers of the salicylic solution. A mild stinging or burning sensation can be expected. After about five minutes, the salicylic peel is neutralized with water and removed. You may experience redness and skin flaking for up to a week after treatment. Normal activities can be resumed right away.

Mild irritation and redness may be experienced for the first few days after treatment. Your provider will give you specific aftercare instructions to help minimize discomfort and speed healing. You may need a series of four to six treatment sessions done at monthly intervals to achieve your desired results.

Benefits of a Salicylic Peel

A salicylic peel can provide multiple aesthetic benefits. These peels unclog pores to clear acne and help reduce age spots. Salicylic peels can also exfoliate sun-damaged skin to brighten your appearance. It can also reduce fine lines and wrinkles. This treatment is safe for all skin types to achieve a more youthful and healthier appearance.
