EXPERT POST TREATMENT ADVICE

Your skin is about to turn the corner. Your skin may or may not peel depending on the condition of your skin at the time of treatment. Please understand that the success of your treatment is not predicated on skin peeling. Treatments may cause slight redness, tightness, peeling, flaking or temporary dryness. Redness should subside several hours post treatment. Most clients find it unnecessary, or even undesirable to apply makeup, as the skin will be fresh, smooth and renewed.

Immediately following your peel, your skin is likely to feel strained or tight. This is perfectly normal. It may take 6 or more treatments to target the deeper layers of skin to ultimately loosen stagnant skin cells and reveal a truly brand new complexion. It is imperative that post-peel instructions for home care are followed in detail.
