For most patients, peels should be done at minimum, three to four times a year starting at puberty to repair sun damage that is already present, and to avoid permanent scarring for those affected by acne.
The frequency of the peel depends on various factors, and will be determined by your doctor. For extremely damaged skin, the VI Peel can initially be done once a month to get quicker desired results.
After 1 treatment you should start to see results! Some conditions like acne scars, pore enlargement and hyper pigmentation might require multiple applications. It is a restorative and painless repair of damaged skin, including sun damage and acne.
Well...Like everything else in life, skin needs maintenance. The peel’s results will last as long as skin is maintained with the help of skin care products. A chemical peel should be performed at least three to four times per year.
Not really. You will feel a slight stinging sensation for a few seconds which subsides almost immediately. The peel is applied topically, and numbing of the skin takes place after the first pass. But don't worry I supply a fan for guests who need more cooling during their service.
Yes you will peel. There a some peels where you don't peel at all but the specific peels that I use (VI Peel) you will experience some peeling. The peeling is a light, fluffy peel that will start on day three and generally be finished by the end of day four. The peeling is easily hidden by moisturizer. In some cases, the peel is virtually invisible. Though the more aggressive peel you use, the more peeling you will have.
The skin will look slightly tan, yellow or red immediately after the peel. On days one and two the skin will feel slightly tighter, with no visible signs of having had a peel. Any pigmented areas might appear slightly darker. On approximately day three, you will begin to peel. The first signs of peeling usually begin around the mouth area and continue for a day or two. By day six or day seven you will be done peeling. If a more aggressive peel was performed, a secondary peel might occur around day seven.
There are no restrictions. Though I do recommend avoiding heavy sweating for the first few days after the peel. Normal activities can be resumed immediately after the peel!
Chemical peels are incredibly effective in removing sunspots from the hands, arms and chest and eliminating the wrinkles associated with sun damage on the décolletage. The peeling process is different and longer than for the face.
All new chemical peel guest must have a complimentary consultation first to see what the proper steps we should take for the best results. But for a returning guest it should take about 20 minutes.
