How often can i have a salicylic peel for acne


Most commonly we perform this at about 1 month intervals (minimum time between treatments). The recovery period is usually from 3 to 7 days for each peel, depending on a number of factors including skin type, and the strength of the salicylic peel. Salicylic peels are especially effective for acne as they are more oil soluble than similar peels, and can penetrate further.
