If you are undertaking a course of peel treatments, it is very common for underlying deep congestion to work to the surface of the skin. It is advised to add Steam and Pore Extraction, which will enable us to remove any blockage as it appears.
Does it hurt?
Some mild discomfort may be experienced during the time of the Acid Peel application; care is taken to make it as comfortable as possible.
A sensation of sensitivity and skin tightening will be experienced immediately post treatment for up to 2 days, followed by skin dryness whilst the dead skin is peeling; the severity of these symptoms will depend on the strength of the Acid Peel taken.
How Many Treatments Do I Need?
A single treatment provides outstanding results. However depending on your skin condition and your skin improvement goals, you may need further treatments to achieve desired results.
How quickly will I see the results?
You will see results immediately. However due to the 1 to 2 day peeling process the skin can appear dry and flaky until the completion of the peeling, when the true results become visible.
How long will the results last?
Commencing a single treatment the skin will appear clearer and brighter for several weeks and up to several months commencing a course of treatments. However this depends on many factors such as how one cares for one’s skin post treatment, the severity of one’s natural oil production, diet, stress, hormone influences and lifestyle.
