Salicylic Acid Peel is the new generation of products for improving the appearance of aging skin. Dermatologists agreed that Salicylic Acid peel is a superior exfoliate that improves the appearance of aging and sun-damaged skin.
Because it is oil soluble, Salicylic Acid Peel can be used several times a week. The outside layer of your skin is covered in oil, and being oil soluble, the Salicylic acid is able to penetrate this outer layer.
However, under this outermost layer is the dermis, and this layer is made up of mostly water. Oil and water don’t mix, and this keeps the Salicylic acid peel from moving down past the outermost levels of the epidermis. This is what makes it safe to use several times a week, and for some even daily.
Our AMCsquared Salicylic acid peel is ideal for oily/acneic skin, clogged pores and seborrheic dermatitis. Salicylic acid peel acts as a peeling agent dissolving the top layer of the epidermis and resurfacing the skin, resulting in a smoother and healthier complexion.
A Salicylic Acid Peel is also beneficial for dehydrated/dry and sensitive skin, sun damaged, dull and uneven skin. And it helps reduce acne inflammation, psoriasis, ingrown hairs, wrinkles and fine lines while improving texture and clarity.
Our Salicylic acid peel 15% is considered a 2nd step, and is safe for novice usage.
This Salicylic acid peel 15% solution can be used no more than 1x every 1-2 weeks to keep pores clear and oily skin under control.
You may then move up to the 25% Salicylic acid peel if you have severe acne. The next acid option for acne skin would be either the Jessners or TCA peels. Many times you will have to try multiple acids to see which works best to control your acne issues. After time your skin may become acclimated to a particular acid. This would be the time to try a different peel for awhile.
Remember to not get frustrated…exfoliation is a process that takes some time. You are beginning your treatments with pores that are clogged with embedded dirt, dead skin cells and sebum. Typically within the first 3 weeks, the skin will begin to show improved clarity with very few breakouts. Deep cleansing and exfoliation is a ‘process’ which takes some time to work. After the skin has cleared, It is also important to continue weekly treatments to keep the pores from becoming clogged.
