How Should I Prepare for a Salicylic Acid Peel?

Before receiving a 30% Salicylic Acid Peel for my forehead acne, how soon should I stop my regular daily acne treatment? I use a 2% salicylic acid gel applied in the morning and at night. I have extremely oily skin and it's not easily irritated. I'm hoping the peel will remove some of the more stubborn clogged pored on my forehead. After the peel, how soon may I resume my daily treatment, how often can a peel be done? I've read everything from weekly to monthly as safe frequency.
