Salicylic acid peels is a type of beta hydroxy (BHA) peel. The name “salicylic acid” might sound familiar because salicylic acid is very common ingredient in acne treatments and is also great for treating clogged pores and acne. It’s a safe and effective treatment for treating mild acne, oily skin, textural changes, blackheads and post-inflammatory hyper pigmentation in people of most skin types.
Mild acid solutions of salicylic acid encourages the peeling of the top layer of skin and the opening of plugged follicles, which helps to reestablish the normal skin-cell replacement cycle.
For milder acne, salicylic acid helps unclogging pores to resolve and prevent lesions. It does not have any effect on the production of sebum or the presence of the acnes bacteria. Like many other topical acne treatments, salicylic acid must be used continuously, even after acne lesions have healed. It’s effect stops when you stop using it, so your skin will return to its uneven shedding; pores become clogged, and acne returns.
You will need approximately 4-6 peels for optimum results. Though some people will need more and some will need less because the number of peel sessions depends on the severity of the skin issue. You can get back to your normal lifestyle soon after the treatment, and there is no after care as such.
