Am I suitable for a Chemical Peel?
The majority of people are suitable for Chemical Peels. We offer treatments for a variety of skin types. We do recommend booking in a complimentary consultation to discuss your skin and ensure the right peel or other treatment is recommended to you.
Do I need to prep my skin before treatment?
Our peels do not require you to take home products to prepare the skin for treatment. We do recommend avoiding the sun two weeks prior to treatment as well as AHA, BHA, & Vitamin A products.
Does it hurt?
Chemical Peels are viturally pain-free! You will feel a hot sensation when the peel is applied, and your therapist will ask how it feels. The peel will be removed and cooled as soon as it’s penetrated into the layers of skin.
Will my skin peel off?
Unlike peels of the past (think Samantha from SATC), very minimal downtime is required. Your skin may appear slightly red and flakey.
Are there any after effects or risks?
There are only a few side effects associated with Chemical Peel treatments. Redness, swelling and irritation normally subside with a few hours and there is no downtime. Our therapists will guide you on how to take care of your skin post peel.
Can I go in the sun after a chemical peel?
Since ultraviolet light is likely to cause further damage to your skin, it is vital that you use sun protection to prevent damage to the new skin during and after your chemical peel treatments. A broad spectrum SPF 50, like our Active Protect sunscreen is recommended.
When can I expect results?
Results will vary, but you will see a definite change in your skin once you complete your recommended treatment plan.
