How Does Salicylic Acid Treat Acne?

Posted in Acne At Home Treatments by . | Leave a Comment
Salicylic acid is one of the most common over-the-counter medications used to treat acne.  Salicylic acid is available in many formulations, including cleansers and spot treatment creams, at concentrations up to 2%.  Dr. Schweiger explains that, "Salicylic acid helps remove dead skin cells from the skin, which prevents clogged pores that can attract acne bacteria."  Salicylic acid is not the only effective over-the-counter acne medication.  Benzoyl peroxide, sulfur, tea tree oil, glycolic acid, and retinol can play an important role in the treatment of acne.  However, as effective as over-the-counter medications can be in the treatment of acne, it is important to see a dermatologist for acne that does not respond quickly.  When left untreated, acne can cause permanent scarring.  Click here to read more about over-the-counter treatments, such as salicylic acid, for acne.
