Salicylic Acid peels are great for getting rid of old skin and sebum debris that clog the inside of your pores. Being a Beta Hydroxy Acid, Salicylic Acid is oil soluble, meaning that it can “eat” through the oils on your skin’s surface, and penetrate into the pore to loosen up the dirt the plugs up the pore which cause blackheads and pimples.
Microcurrent / Galvanic ion exchange, is the use of electric current to “push in” the ingredients of the topically applied conducting serum, and “pull out” impurities and dead skin cells. Usually, after a Microcurrent treatment, you will find bits of old skin debris on your skin’s surface. (I use a home beauty gadget that has galvanic/ultrasound/far infrared light/ micromassage)
Used as separate treatments, they are both phenomenal in keeping your pores open and clean, and your skin looking younger and lifted. Common sense tells me to think about what happens when using the two wonderful skin care treatments together.
You have the Salicylic Acid within your pores, which stays there for another day or so after peel, continuing to do its job of loosening debris. You also have the SuperSerum of choice, with its many nutrients, being pushed into the pores, and impurities extracted.
What happens to the Salicylic Acid? Is it being pushed further than it should into the pore? Is the SuperSerum blocking the action of the Salicylic Acid? Is the Microcurrent treatment pulling out the Salicylic Acid?
Because the individual treatments may have an impact on the actions or results of the other, I have come to the conclusion that for best results, a Salicylic Acid Peel should be done on a different day than a Microcurrent treatment. What do you think? I appreciate your comments!
