Salicylic acid peels are a safe and effective way to reduce acne prone skin and restore a blemish free complexion.
If OTC products are not working and you are looking for a more aggressive treatment that will give you good results without down time or dangerous side effects, then salicylic peels may be the perfect solution for your skin care problems.
If you are looking for a skin peel to treat oily, acne prone skin, salicylic acid will likely work better for you than glycolic acid treatments.
Salicylic acid is a popular ingredient in many over-the-counter acne treatment products, however, the concentration is usually between 0.05% and 5%. Although some people may notice improvements in cases of mild acne or occasional breakouts, severe skin conditions typically require much higher concentrations.
Professional strengths range from 10% which is considered a light treatment, to a medium strength 20%, and a 30% concentration for deep facial peels.
Since it can penetrate the skin better than glycolic acid, BHA peels are often used instead of stronger strength AHA peels because there is also the added benefit of deep pore cleansing.
Salicylic peels are mild to medium treatments that are considered to be safe when used properly. However, like any acid product, some side effects may occur, but the skin will usually fully recover within 3-7 days.
Salicylic Acid peels are safe for any skin type and are often recommended for those with sensitive skin since they are gentler than many other chemical peels.
However, depending on the problem being treated, BHA peels are not always the best choice. Salicylic acid is the most effective on oily, blemish prone skin. It is very good at treating acne, enlarged pores, blackhead, whiteheads, and scars.
Although an improvement in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles has been reported evident from Salicylic acid peel before and after results, if this is your main reason for seeking treatment, another type of peel may be more beneficial.
For safety and optimal results, it is recommended that you visit a doctor or skin care professional who is qualified to administer chemical peels.
