Clinical peels are recommended for almost all skin types. Certain conditions, like rosacea, require an assessment prior to treatment.
The sensation of a clinical peel is likened to mild stinging. Because the peel is on no longer than 5 minutes, most patients find treatment completely comfortable. Cool compresses or a fan can be incorporated into the treatment to maximize comfort. Once neutralized, there is no persistent sensation - skin feels softer, makeup can be applied and patients can return immediately to regular activities.
Patients may return immediately to most regular activities after clinical peels - avoidance of significant sweating is recommending the day of treatment.
Treatments are scheduled over 30 minutes to allow for the included pre-treatment cleansing and post-treatment skin soothing rituals.
A series of 4-6 clinical peels spaced 2 weeks apart are recommended twice per year. For ongoing maintenance, patients may opt for monthly refresher peels between series.
