Hi Dr. Todorov,

- I'm wondering if you have any updates on the effectiveness of BHAs. It seemed that you last addressed the topic sometime around 2006, and I wondered if new studies had been done since, as from what I can tell on the internet, BHAs and AHAs target two different areas, with BHAs exfoliating deep within the pore, and AHAs only being on the surface. As well as BHAs having an anti-inflammitory effect, helping redness, bumps, and also increasing collagen. i.e. BHAs may not simply be for if you only have acne.

BHA's don't seem to have been studied much lately. Their main applications remain acne treatment and certain types of chemical peels as far as I know.

Beta Hydroxy Acids or BHAs are fat-soluble organic compounds that are acidic in nature. The usual structure of a beta hydroxy acid includes a carboxylic acid and hydroxy functional groups. These compounds are called so as their functional groups are separated by two carbon atoms. You can find more information at zovon.com/hot-topics/aging/beta-hydroxy-acids/
