Salicylic acid peel is a chemical peel mostly used to treat acne.
Peeling will generally start 48-72 hours after your treatment and last up to 2 weeks
Can be repeated every 2-4 weeks depending on the patient’s skin reaction.
The skin will likely start to peel after 48-72 hours. It’s important not to attempt to speed up the peeling process by picking at the skin, as this can damage the skin.
The peel will be applied to the face with a cotton tip applicator. Tingling and warmth can usually be felt in the treated areas. One area may react more strongly than another. A fan can be used to cool down the tingling and warmth. The peel is also then neutralized with TCA.
