In brief: Not really.

Salicylic acid is a mild skin peeling agent that removes the top sun-damaged layers of the skin, allowing the healthier skin cells from within the hair follicles and sweat glands to resurface your skin as it heals after peel.
More collagen and elastic fibers are produced, making your skin look more youthful and less wrinkled.
