A salicylic acid peel is a light, superficial chemical peel that only affects the outermost layers of the skin. This means that the results are limited only to the epidermis, and does not damage deeper layers.
A salicylic acid peel works to improve several skin conditions, such as:
- Clogged pores
- Congested (oily) skin
The peel chemicals are then applied to the skin. Your skin will likely feel warm and a stinging sensation may be present in addition to your skin turning red. This treatment makes your skin reconditioned and smooth. The therapy consists of 4-6 treatments carried out at the intervals of 2-3 weeks.
