WHAT IT IS:
Salicylic acid is a BHA that exfoliates skin and can improve oil production. It also helps with acne and acne scarring and fine lines and wrinkles.
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. Salicylic acid will help to control sebum and keep oil production at a minimum which helps to address acne.
FOR BEST RESULTS:
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 Daily Collagen Complex, Hyaluronic Serum or Squalane 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
Mild/Moderate - The 20% Salicylic peel has mild to moderate downtime. Typically you will see some light to medium peeling and some areas of the skin may frost ( turning a white/offwhite color ) during application. It is common for frosted areas to darken before peeling off. The peeling typically starts on day 4 or 5. You can resume to normal exfoliation after one week.
2oz Acid Peels contain 10-15 applicationsPeel can be repeated every 2 weeks.
Please read complete instructions that arrive with your peel prior to applying peel.
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 20% 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 ant-aging serum, we recommenf MedPeel Hyaluronic Replenish Serum. Step 6: Follow with any moisturizer of your choice, we recommend MedPeel Hyaluronic Moisturizer Cream
