Facial peels require the client to follow a skin care regime at home at least a week before the peel treatment to insure satisfactory results. A typical peel treatment plan, which is usually 3 peels between 2-4 weeks apart which will be dependant on their individual strength, it is important to prepare the skin so as to reduce the Stratum Corneum thickness, increase the overall hydration as well as limiting the overall skin reactions during the treatment. Re-epithelisation is enhanced which is an essential component of wound healing throughout the peel process.
Peel type 1 & 2 have a better overall success rate on our facial skin condition if used as part of a treatment plan, however you will see a marked difference with just one. It must be stressed however the importance of using carefully chosen medical skin care range both prior to, during and between treatments.
Peel facial plans can be ongoing anywhere from *1-24 weeks. This will be dependent on skin type and any skin problems at hand.
