If you suffer from acne, you might have heard that glycolic and salicylic acid can help your skin. There is evidence that it can restore skin to its pre-acne state and help to balance the skin’s PH. An added benefit of a good acne treatment plan is that is can reduce the look of acne scars and dark spots from acne.
Acne Treatment Program:
The best treatment for acne seems to be the following program of care. First, patients use a glycolic acid facial cleanser (which likely will also contain benzoyl peroxide) for about 2 to 3 weeks.
They will follow that with a series of glycolic and salicylic peels which will usually be performed each week for 6 weeks.
