PEELS Q & A
Peels are the next step in corrective skin care! We offer a variety of light, medium and deep peels for all skin types. Peels enhance and smooth the skins texture. They are also an effective treatment for blemishes, wrinkles and uneven pigmentation.
Enzyme Peel: Slight rosiness right after, a little tight day after, no visible peeling, smoother more radiant skin.
Light Peel: Rosy, taught skin, dryness with very light flaking. Downtime is minimal with 2-3 days. These peels are great for people always on the go!
Medium Peel: Rosy, warm, tight, sunburn like feel. Moderate flaking with a little more irritation than a light peel. Downtime is a little longer with 5-7 days.
Deep Peel: Significantly more redness, very tight, rough texture, aggressive peeling. Quite a bit more sensitivity. Downtime 7-10 days.
I have multiple things I want to correct. What peel should I choose?
After we meet we will select the peel that best suits your needs. Many of our peels help with more than one concern.
Will a deep peel remove my scarring or hyperpigmentation?
No, not right away. Peeling is a process and it takes time, commitment, and consistency to reduce discoloration and improve texture. Every client is different so we are unable to give an exact number of peels that you will need. Just know that with each visit you will see improvement.
Will I start peeling right away?
No, the skin will be tight for 2-3 days after application. Usually on the 3rd day you will begin to peel.
How often should I get a peel?
Everyone is different. Ask your esthetician! She will help you to determine what is best
for your skin.
I have darker skin. Are peels safe for me?
Yes absolutely! We have peels that are formulated for all skin types.
I am pregnant/nursing. Can I get a peel?
No unfortunately. You can however get several of our enzyme peels.
I am using prescription acne medication or creams. Can I get a peel?
You can BUT you must stop using 7-10 days prior to a peel.
What will I look like during the peeling process & can I wear makeup to cover it?
Not as bad as you would think. Expect some irritation with skin sheading in flakes.
As long as you are using the post peel kit you can hide the process well.
We don't recommend it but do understand at times it is necessary.
Talk to your Esthetician on proper application.
