Salicylic Acid 20% Gel Peel, 30ml (Professional)

The outside layer of your skin is covered in oil, and being oil soluble, the Salicylic acid is able to penetrate this outer layer.

Salicylic/20 peel breaks down the protein bonds between the layers of skin, which is why a much quicker peel can be achieved.
For acne, the Salicylic acid has several properties that make it a very effective treatment for acne.

Salicylic/20 peel acts as an anti-inflammatory and helps to immediately reduce acne spots
Salicylic/20 peel is effective at reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and improving overall facial texture because it exfoliates both the skin surface and within pores.

Great For Acne Salicylic acid is highly effective for acne and oily skins.
Salicylic acid blends powerful skin exfoliation with skin soothing actions. It has ultraviolet absorbing properties that help to protect the skin from the damaging effects of the sun.

Customer Reviews

Review 1:
This peel works great! I used it on my clients and myself and have seen great results. For those who know what they're doing and have used active treatments before, this is a great weekly peel to keep major acne outbreaks at bay and smooth out the skin's surface.

If you're thinking about using this peel and you've never used anything but hand soap on your skin, I would say put the credit card down and do some research before you buy. The treatments really work, but if you haven't built up your skin's "readiness" with some home treatments, even over-the-counter acne washes with 2% salicylic, the burning this peel will produce will be too much for you.

Review 2:
This peel is just perfect. It not only works on the scars but also helps control acne. I've used it for 4 weeks now (applying it once a week ), and haven't had a single new breakout. The peeling is subtle, but none of my blemishes are visible anymore.

Although the instructions say not to keep it on for more than 5-7 mins, I keep it on for 2 hours. I'm not saying everyone should do that. (I did try keeping it on for 10mins for the first time and nothing happened). Maybe it's because my skin is used to salicylic acid.

I have been using the Neutrogena 2% salicylic products for three years with no great results. And this peel worked wonders in a month. Needless to say, I've discontinued using them.

Also, the processing was pretty fast. Got it in four days flat.
All in all, a wonderful product.

Review 3:
Product works great, noticeable immediate improvement, though not drastic. I have been repeating it and have not had harsh results, just the expected peeling. I have large pores on my nose, chin and between eyebrows. After the peel I notice a change in pore depth and size. I am very impressed.

Review 4:
I started having problems with adult onset acne at about age 25 - am now 40. Have tried everything - oral antibiotics, topical antibiotics, retin-a, etc. etc. Despite trying numerous dermatologists, I never got what I considered good results - just a three minute visit and a couple of scripts. Decided to try this - at the price, nothing to lose. Man am I pleased. For the first time, acne is resolved (I have used the peel once a week for about six weeks). My scarring is improved and my skin tone is becoming much more even. Even improving my melasma. I would highly recommend this product. Word of caution. Acne will worsen after the first treatment - wait it out - it will improve Dramatically.

Review 5:
Best price I found, super fast delivery. Great product, my breakouts have really diminished and i'm only on my second application, comes with full instructions and works greeeeat! will definitely continue to buy more of this supplier's products.

Review 6:
I love this product!! I have not been able to find anything this strong or at this price anywhere. My face is always even and beautiful now, this is definately my favorite of the peels skin laboratory puts out.

Review 7:
I've struggled with acne prone skin since I was 10 years old...Now I'm 26 and STILL have problems, mainly with clogged pores and what seems like too much oil production. After trying any and every product I could get my hands on, I decided to try a peel. I have very sensitive skin, so I was a little weary at first, but the 20% solution has worked great for me so far! The first time I used it I could only leave it on for about 30 seconds. (The stinging was a little more than I had expected.) But even after leaving it on for such a short time I have had great results! My face is not nearly as oily as it was before. I used to get really shiny about an hour after applying my makeup, but now my face looks great throughout the day. And the number of pimples has also dramatically decreased. I would strongly suggest using this product.

Review 8:
After years of sun damage and wrinkles forming on my skin, I never thought I could finally find something to help my complexion. Not only did it clear up my acne, but it made my skin feel soft and new. My wrinkles are much less noticeable and my skin looks a lot healthier. Not many products actually work but I'm glad to say that this one did. I'm very happy that I decided to use this product and I recommend it to everyone that wants better skin.

Review 9:
I used a wide-tip paint brush, poured a little of this acid in a glass container, and painted it on. The first time I left it for 15 minutes, the second and third times I left it on for about 30. I should have bought the 30% because it doesn't burn how other people have reported, but it does make my complexion clear for a while. Makes me look younger for sure.. I love this product and will continue the application, but with the stronger dose next time. But for people with delicate skin this is probably very good.

Review 10:
I didn't purchase it here on Amazon but I have to say this is a great product. It is not for the faint of heart. I have very sensitive skin. I was only able to leave it on for probably less than 30 seconds the first time, the second time putting it on, I could only handle a minute BUT the difference was noticeable the 2nd time. If you can handle the tingling/burning sensation, it really is worth it. I make sure to start with the forehead, then to my chin, upper lip, then my checks as that is the most sensitive for me. There isn't another product like this for such a great price.
