A Salicylic peel is a superficial chemical peel that alters the uppermost layer of the skin to treat numerous skin concerns including acne, large pores, blackheads and oily skins.
How is it done?
Initially, the target areas are cleaned and prepared for the treatment. The salicylic peel substance is then applied to the surface of the skin and is left on the skin for a required period anywhere between 10 to 30 minutes. You may fee slight tingling and warm effect during the application of salicylic peel, but these normally disappear in a very short time.
The lesser downtime and minimal discomfort make this treatment a lunchtime procedure. These peels are applied two times in a week to achieve the desired outcomes.
