Darst Dermatology offers personalized salicylic peels in Charlotte, Matthews, and the surrounding North Carolina communities.
What Is a Salicylic Peel?
This type of peel uses a beta hydroxy acid to remove the excess sebum – facial wax made up of wax and dead cells. It also kills bacteria that live deep within your skin. Salicylic peels are effective for treating a variety of conditions, including the following:
- Acne and acne scars
- Blackheads and whiteheads
- Wrinkles and fine lines
- Uneven skin tone
How Does It Work?
During the procedure, your face will be cleansed so that no impurities remain which could damage your delicate skin following treatment. A thin layer of peeling agent will be applied and left on your face for several minutes. The solution will be washed away and a moisturizer with sunscreen will be applied. You may require more than one peel to see results.
Are There Any Side Effects?
In general, redness, swelling, flaking, and peeling may occur for several days following a salicylic acid peel.
