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 feel slight tingling and warm effect during the application of the 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.

What are the benefits of Salicylic Peel?
The salicylic peel specifically targets the epidermis correcting dozens of skin concerns including:
• Correct the dullness of the skin
• Removes pores
• Treats the sun harmed skin
• Keratinolytic in real life, which implies that it evacuates the abundance of keratin (a sort of protein) from the skin’s surface and further aids in unclogging the pores
• Treats hyperpigmentation of various types, for example, spots, lentigines (age spots or liver spots), melasma, and skin break out imprints
• Removes whiteheads, blackheads and acne scars
• Lessens post-skin inflammation redness and aggravation
• Influences the skin to seem firm and supple as it initiates collagen creation
• Helps the composition
• Minimizes large pores
• Gives the skin a characteristic shine
Are there side-effects?
You may experience redness, dryness and pigmentary changes in your skin after the procedure. The majority of the symptoms do not stay for a long period and disappear in few days.

Salicylic Acid Peel, being a light peel, does not have major side-effects. This makes the recovery period negligible after the peel session, which is the reason this peel is called as the ‘noon peel’ in some cases.
