Salicylic Acid Peel Treatments
Salicylic acid is a common ingredient in many skin care products today. You can find it in the form of cleansers, soaps, creams and even makeup. Benefits of salicylic acid for skin include:
- Removing dead skin cells from the top layer of your skin, which can help clear clogged pores and hair follicles.
- Reducing oiliness or sebum (natural oil) production on your skin.
- Treating acne by unclogging pores and reducing inflammation.
- Helping to prevent breakouts on oily or acne-prone skin.
If you’ve never had a chemical peel, you’re not missing out on much. They’ve always been perceived as painful, and in the past, that perception was well-earned. But now that we can use salicylic acid instead of lactic acid as a peeling agent? It’s a whole new world!
Salicylic acid is gentle to the skin—it breaks down more slowly, so your skin doesn’t have to peel off all at once. That means less pain, but just as much benefit. Salicylic acid is a natural exfoliant and antioxidant that clears away dead skin cells and leaves your skin feeling fresh and clean after every treatment.
Salicylic acid is so gentle that you could probably get away with doing it more often if you really wanted to. This chemical is naturally found in plants such as willow bark, which has been used for centuries to treat skin ailments, has anti-inflammatory properties that help reduce swelling in your pores and calm redness.
The salicylic acid peel also includes other botanical extracts that can aid in treating acne. These include: chamomile flower extract, aloe barbadensis leaf juice, and green tea extract.
These botanicals combine with the salicylic acid to get rid of all of those dead skin cells so your skin can breathe again and look healthy and refreshed. This powerful combination of acids and botanicals is what makes our salicylic peel so effective at removing dead skin cells and reducing sebum production on your face. This treatment is recommended if you suffer from acne or want to go back in time by 10 years without having Botox!
