Our certified Salicylic Acid Peels in "so easy to use" pre-moistened pads. These are professional grade, "Cool-Action" peels buffered to a pH of 2.1. Salicylic is most beneficial for acne skin types as it is oil soluble and can dive deep into the pores in search of oil. Salicylic peels can be a tremendous solution for those dealing with grades 1, 2 and even 3 acne. Salicylic peels will be applied 1x per week or every other week. For best results in breaking the acne cycle, realize that your daily products are as important as your peels.
Choose from one of the three available percentages:
- Level 1 Salicylic 3% - Pre-Teens, Teens and Adults multiple times per week.
- Level 2 Salicylic 15% - Weekly peel for all non-sensitive, clogged pores
- Level 3 Salicylic 25% - Move up as needed.
The Higher pH level slows down the action of the peel and makes it safer for home usage. If you are searching for the correct acid to clear your skin then salicylic or mandelic are the proper choices. Salicylic peels are great for improving skin issues such as:
- Large pores
- Re-freshen the skin
Salicylic works nicely on acne and oily skin types to accelerate the turnover of skin cells, clear pores, and slow sebum production.
After you have prepared your skin for 2 weeks, we suggest the following application process:
- Wash face with acidic cleanser.
- Dry and swipe Peel Prep Solution A Pad over all areas to be peeled.
- Air Dry.
- Take one Salicylic Peel Pad and swipe over all areas to be peeled.
- Time then apply Neutralizer.
- Rinse well with cool - cold water until no irritation remains.
What is Cool-Action?
To make this peel more comfortable, we added in a bit of menthol to minimize the 'burning effect' that many people feel while performing peels. This ingenious action allows for a more comfortable peel. You will find it in several of our peel formulas.
Do not use a salicylic peel if you are pregnant. It is in the aspirin family.
Oily skin is prone to blackheads, breakouts, and large pores - especially in the T-zone (forehead, nose and chin areas). Salicylic acid, a beta-hydroxy acid is a highly effective superficial peeling agent and pore cleanser. It loosens and removes aging cells, oil and debris attached to the skin's surface. Stimulates new cell production and increased collagen formation. Is oil soluble and lipophilic, thus it is able to penetrate sebum filled follicles and clean out clogged pores, resulting in marked improvement in acne prone skin.
Your daily treatments are just as important as your weekly or bi-weekly peel. Make sure to read about How Our CEO Cured her Acne.
