You may be a little nervous before your first chemical peel. But, it’s so different from what you see on TV. First, your skin will be cleansed and toned. An alcohol wipe may be used to clear any sebum off your skin. This allows the peel to work it’s magic even better.

The peel is applied all over the face, with extra attention on areas of concern.

After your peel, we tailor a serum, moisturizer, and SPF to help your skin start the recovery process. You will look more glowy and hydrated, and may not peel for a day or so. Depending on the peel you get, you may peel for around a week. You may experience light flaking or full sheeting.
