WHAT IT IS:
Salicylic acid is a BHA that exfoliates skin and can improve its texture and color. It also helps with acne and acne scarring.
WHAT IT IS FORMULATED TO DO:
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. In acne, topical salicylic acid helps slow down shedding of the cells inside the follicles, preventing clogging.
FOR BEST RESULTS:We recommend adding on the Premium Salicylic Peel Essentials Kit to accompany this chemical peel.
Before Your Peel
For best results, prep the skin for a week prior to peel application with the salicylic 2% daily exfoliator. We strongly recommend conducting a patch test 3 days before applying a peel to ensure no negative or unusual reactions occur.
After Your Peel
Generously apply Hyaluronic Serum and Natural Squalane Oil or Hyaluronic Moisturizing Cream as needed for tight, dry skin. Use a minimum of broad spectrum SPF 30 every day to protect healing skin. Begin using a daily exfoliator in between peels for long lasting results.
Mild - The Salicylic 10% peel will have little to no downtime. During the application you may experience slight redness and burning but will subside after application. You may see some light peeling/flaking starting on day 4 or 5 and can last approximately 4-7 days.

Please read complete instructions that arrive with your peel prior to applying. You can also read more about how to apply a chemical peel here.
Step 1: Wash the skin with a gel based cleanser, we recommend our Pre Peel Cleanser and pat dry. Then apply pre-peel solution using a cotton ball to ensure the skin is properly cleansed.
Step 2: Apply the Salicylic 10% peel to a gauze pad and smooth it over the desired area of the face, neck or decolletage.
Step 3: Allow the peel to set for no more than 3 minutes during the first application. Observe the reaction and note the results. During future treatments, you may increase the peel time up to 8 mins at which point it will self neutralize. If the skin feels uncomfortable, apply cool water gauze compresses to calm the sensation.
Step 4: Remove the peel by applying the Neutralizer Solution directly over the applied area. Rinse the remaining solution with cool water. Gently pat the skin dry.
Step 5. Apply anti-aging serum, we recommend MedPeel Hyaluronic Replenish Serum. Step 6: Follow with any moisturizer of your choice, we recommend MedPeel Hyaluronic Moisturizer Cream
