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.
POST PEEL EXTRACTIONS
Extractions & peels CANNOT be done in the same visit. An optimal time to do extractions is 4-6 days after the peeling has occurred. Included is a post-peel follow up consult, skin prep and 30 minutes of light extractions for $60.
For a deep post peel extraction session 60 minutes for $80 *ask your Esthetican which to choose during peel application*
*THIS MUST BE BOOKED WITHIN ONE WEEK OF YOUR PEEL*
The purchase of a post peel home care kit is REQUIRED and not included in the price of the service.
Products included in the kit are designed to insure the your skin heals properly during the peeling process.
Kits range in price from $40 to $70 depending on the depth of the peel.
Chemical peels CANNOT be done if you are currently using topical acne medications, prescription creams or over the counter retinol. Clients must discontinue use for a minimum of 7 days prior to any peel application. The expert Esthetician will determine after an in-depth analysis which peel or facial is most appropriate for you.
POST PEEL HOME CARE KIT REQUIRED
I have multiple things I want to correct. What peel should I choose?
Choose a peel based on your top concern. 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 the Aesthetician! 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.
