Abstract

Salicylic Acid 30% is often considered as gold standard in chemical peels for the treatment of acne vulgaris and has been proven to be very effective in the treatment of inflamed lesions in acne vulgaris and comedonal acne. The purpose of this study was to measure sebum levels on facial skin before and after chemical peels with 30% salicylic acid. The data was collected before and after chemical peeling with 30% salicylic acid. Of the total 15 samples measured, the average sebum content before chemical peeling was 79.93 ± 23.50%. And after chemical peeling was 66.20 ± 18.72%. Based on the normality test using the Shapiro-Wilk test, levels of facial skin sebum before and after chemical peeling with salicylic acid 30% significance value > 0.05, this implies the data are assumed to be normally distributed. Then the data is analyzed by paired t test. The result is sig .000. From the results, the average skin sebum level before the procedure was 79.93%, while the average skin sebum level after the procedure was 66.20%. There is a significant difference between the levels of sebum in the skin before and after chemical peeling with 30% salicylic acid in patients with skin types Fitzpatrik III, IV, V aged 17-35 years.
