What is the Full Vitality Spa salicylic acid facial ?

In cosmetics, acids are used to exfoliate the skin, that is to say, to eliminate the oldest cells in order to accelerate its renewal.

Salicylic acid is a beta hydroxy acid (BHA) that is derived from willow bark, and is soluble in oil rather than water.

This acid is able to penetrate the deepest layers of the skin and kill blackheads and whiteheads. It therefore stands out for its great potential on this type of lesions typical of acne-prone skin.



Why Full Vitality Spa’s salicylic acid is so effective against acne

The reason is its ability to penetrate into the deepest layers of the skin and “undo” the glue that binds the cells together, thus promoting their elimination. This makes it the perfect ally for clearing acne lesions such as blackheads and comedones, but it is also quite effective on pimples and inflamed skin in combination with other ingredients such as benzoyl peroxide.



How long does the Full Vitality Spa salicylic acid facial treatment last?

The Full Vitality Spa salicylic acid facial treatment is a ritual of about 60 minutes but this will always be tailored to the client’s needs.


What are the benefits of salicylic acid?

1- Regulates oil secretions: its long-term application significantly reduces the skin’s sebaceous secretions, which helps to prevent the creation of new blackheads and comedones.

2- It has a keratolytic effect: your exfoliating action removes dead skin that tends to accumulate and clog pores, and in the long run this helps to even out skin tone and make skin look more luminous.

3- It is depigmenting: it has a certain depigmenting potential, perfect for fading spots and previous acne marks.

4- It is anti-dandruff and helps to treat seborrhoeic dermatitis in very low concentrations.

5- It is anti-inflammatory: it helps to reduce inflammation of active lesions, such as swollen pimples, due to its antimicrobial potential.
