WHAT IS SALICYLIC ACID
Salicylic Acid is a beta hydroxy acid derived from the bark of the willow tree. Beta hydroxy acids have a larger molecule than their cousin, alpha hydroxy acids. The larger molecule size keeps the beta hydroxy acid on the surface of the skin allowing it to more effectively penetrate and exfoliate within the pore. This action within the pores make it an ideal exfoliant for use on acne and acne-prone skin.
The larger molecule size of Salicylic Acid produces less irritation than alpha hydroxy acids, making it a welcome alternative for those with sensitive skin.
Salicylic Acid works by softening keratin, a protein that forms part of the skin structure. This helps to loosen dry scaly skin making it easier to remove. When Salicylic Acid is used in combination with other medicines it takes off the upper layer of skin allowing the additional medicines to penetrate more effectively.
In acne, Salicylic Acid helps slow down shedding of the cells inside the follicles, preventing clogging. Salicylic Acid also helps break down blackheads and whiteheads.
A SERIES OF SALICYLIC ACID PEELS CAN BE UTILIZED FOR
Salicylic Acid is a key ingredient in many skin-care products for the treatment of acne, warts, psoriasis, calluses, corns, keratosis, and pilaris. It works by causing the cells of the epidermis to slough off more readily, preventing pres from clogging up, and allowing room for new cell growth.
Salicylic Acid also helps reduce the appearance of light scars as well as scars caused by acne.
Salicylic Acid is excellent for wart removal.
Salicylic Acid will also help freshen skin by producing new collogen
Brightens and illuminates the skin

THE FOUR LEVELS OF PEELING
The ingredient and concentration obviously play a very big role in determining the ultimate depth of the chemical peel. However, other variables can make a difference such as whether a pre-peel de-fatting prep was performed, the amount of chemical applied, and the length of time the chemical was allowed to stay on the skin.
Another important factor is which area will be treated. The variations in skin thickness can affect the ultimate peel outcome. For instance, the face usually heals far more rapidly and typically experiences far fewer complications (such as discoloration, scar formation and infection) than areas such as the backs of the hands or neck. And regardless of what type or depth of peel used, exfoliation always increases one´s sun sensitivity. Always wear a broad spectrum SPF 30 when using any type of chemical or physical exfoliation.
This really isn’t a true peel, more of an exfoliation. The most superficial layers of the stratum corneum (at the top of the epidermis) is removed or thinned during exfoliation. Most chemical peels have a preoperative regimen of using exfoliating agents such as Renova, Tazorac or a strong glycolic acid cream for 2-4 weeks prior to the actual procedure. This helps the chemical peeling agents penetrate more deeply and evenly. The use of these exfoliants also have the obvious beneficial properties of smoothing out thickened rough areas, helping self tanners go on more evenly and helping other skin rejuvenation products reach deeper tissues. Additionally, there has been good evidence that vitamin A exfoliants can help stimulate collagen deposition.
Superficial chemical peels remove skin through a portion or all of the epidermal layer. These are the “refreshing” forms of skin peels. They can also help with reducing the appearance of very mild blotchy skin discoloration, remnant acne discoloration and help cleanse the pores. This is the most common form of peel that you would find performed in a spa or by an aesthetician. And typically they would only utilize glycolic, AHA blends or BHA as the active ingredients. True peels with higher levels of glycolic acid (30% or higher) or those containing TCA, resorcinol or Jessner’s ideally would be performed in a medical setting.
A medium strength chemical peel allows the acid to penetrate through the epidermis, down into the upper most portion of the dermis known as the papillary dermis. A medium strength peel will be far more likely to be associated with complications, both temporary and permanent.
This peel goes through the epidermis, papillary dermis and into the deeper portion of the dermis known as the reticular dermis. These peels are not a simple procedure. Absorption of the active ingredient, phenol, has been known to cause cardiac arrest and even death. Patients who undergo phenol peels should be placed under general anesthesia and on full cardiac and pulmonary monitoring.
Persons allergic to aspirin products should not use this peel. Do not use this peel is you have herpes simplex. Do not use this peel if you are HIV positive or have AIDS. Do not use this peel if you suffer from eczema, sebhorrheic dermatitis or any other drying skin conditions. Do not use on keloids or hypotrophic scars (type of deep scar). Do not use if you have recently had cryotherapy on warts or moles. Do not use if you are allergic to Gycolic Acid, Salicylic Acid, Resorcinol, Trichloroacetic Acid., Latic Acid. Do not use if you have been on Accutane within the last six months. Discontinue retinoids within 5 days of use. Do not use if you are undergoing chemotherapy or radiation. Do not use if you are pregnant or about to be pregnant. Do not use if you are nursing.
If you have never had a chemical peel before, or if you have sensitive skin, it is recommended that first time users start with the 20% Salicylic Acid solution. The 30% level of Salicylic Acid Chemical Peel is recommended for people who have used this product previously and know that their skin can tolerate this level of strength.
If you are using this product to control acne, remember that your acne will appear worse before it looks better. The reason is that as the dead skin layers are peeled from the face, the acne will be brought to the surface. This is actually accelerating the healing process. In this case, don't be discouraged and continue recommended use to see improvement.
WHO CAN USE SALICYLIC ACID PEELS
Salicylic Acid is ideal for people with acne or rosacea but can be drying if used too often. The pore-cleansing properties of Salicylic Acid make it a more effective comedone fighter. Those with sensitive skin who cannot tolerate alpha hydroxy acids may find that they are able to use Salicylic Acid with good results. However, alpha hydroxy acid's penetration into the deeper layers of the skin produce better anti-wrinkle and anti-aging benefits.
Salicylic Acid is particularly successful in treating acne, because it targets oil in hair follicles and exfoliates pores. (Remember, clogged pores are one of the three contributing factors to acne.) Many popular acne treatments contain benzoyl peroxide, which is highly effective but may be too irritating for high-scorers on the sensitive scale. If you think that applies to you, try Salicylic Acid instead.
Then there's the case of alpha hydroxy acids, which seem to be touted everywhere you look these days! AHAs are indeed a good option for some skin types, but they may also be too harsh for rosacea skin types.
Once again, Salicylic Acid comes to the rescue - by speeding up cell turnover in much the same way alpha hydroxy acids do, Salicylic Acid is an effective alternative for treating sun-damaged and hyperpigmented skin, with some anti-inflammatory activity to boot.
You see, Salicylic Acid isn't just an exfoliant - it also has anti-inflammatory properties, making it an effective option for sensitive types who suffer from rosacea.
Best of all, Salicylic Acid-based products are affordable and easy to find. Always use caution: This product should not be used by women who are pregnant or breast-feeding, or by anyone allergic to aspirin.
