Salicylic Peel?

Recommended Posts

Hi, can anyone tell me if they have had a salicylic peel done and what were the results like. I was on accutane when I was younger and don't suffer from acne anymore, but have some minor scarring (looks like large pores or small ice pick scars). He recommended the salicylic peel. I did a at home tca peel 25% a few months ago and it seemed like it helped a little. Trying to get some feed back as to if the salicylic peel will help even my skin tone complexion as well tighten my skin?

No, a salicylic peel will not even the complexion or tighten your skin. Salicylic peels are used for highly congested pores.

If you only saw "a little" results from a 25% TCA peel, you'll need to look into laser resurfacing or very deep resurfacing peels performed by a physician. None of the at home strengths will help you.
