WHAT IS A PEELING?
Peeling is an act of applying a chemical substance (most often an acid) to the skin to cause limited and controlled destruction of the epidermis or even the superficial layers of the dermis, helping the skin to re-oxygenate.
What skin issues does it target?
Fine lines or moderate wrinkles
Diminished texture, tone
Acne with comedones or microkystes
How many peelings should I expect to see results?
We recommend between
3 to 4 peelings
Done at an interval of 3 to 4 weeks
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF PEELING FOR MY SKIN?
It will stimulate the natural regenerating and repairing functions of the skin. It works on dilated pored, brown spots, acne scars and overall lack of skin brightness. Furthermore, with the skin brightening peeling, you don’t work on only one or two issues, but you improve the overall state of your skin. It refines the grain and makes the skin softer.
Will I need special care after A treatment?
The peeling works as a skin detox, you may notice some imperfections coming out in the 2 to 5 days following the treatment.
Apply SPF 30 and up the next day
Avoid any sports, spas/saunas, hot showers, sun exposure during 24-72hours following the treatment.
Hydrate after 4 hours then regularly.
You can apply makeup the next day, preferrably mineral makeup.
Do not apply any active ingredients for at least 72 hours following the treatment (For ex. Vitamine C, Retinols, etc)
who can receive a peeling?
Men and women, of any age, and any skin type or skin colour. The acids used during the treatment vary, and are used in different concentrations, based on your skin’s specific needs in order to obtain the best possible results for you!
HOW DOES IT WORK?
We will first clean your skin thoroughly. Then we will apply one or more chemical solutions -- such as glycolic acid to small areas of your skin. That creates a controlled wound, letting new skin take its place.
Followed by vapozone and extraction of comedones, specialized serum application, soothing mask and massage.
During a chemical peel, most people feel a burning sensation that lasts about five to ten minutes, followed by a stinging sensation. Putting cool compresses on the skin may ease that stinging.
