What to expect at your visit
Your skin will be assessed and also your suitability for this treatment.
There are different strengths and types of peels ranging from superficial to deep and the choice of treatment will depend on assessment of your skin condition. Peels can be made of alpha hydroxy, glycolic, lactic or fruit acids.
Our aesthetician will use a brush, cotton ball, gauze or sponge to apply the chosen chemical solution. You might feel mild stinging while the solution is on your skin.
Chemical peels can cause some redness. This will vary depending on the strength of the peel. However forget stories of sheets of skin falling off your face, the after effects of a mild peel are nowhere near. Expect shiny, ultra-clean skin post peel and a radiant glow. There may be dryness and some flaking on day 4 to 5 as you shed skin cells
The only thing you have to be careful of is sun damage. Post peel your skin is sensitive to UV so make sure you avoid sun for a few weeks and use a high SPF on your face.
