An exfoliation process, very effective in treating a large range of skin concerns such as aging, sun damage, acne, mild scarring, improving overall skin brightness and evening skin tone.
Peels can be light, moderate or deep. Light peels require no down time from work or normal activities. Moderate peels may require a day or two of down time, and deep peels can require a week or more to allow the skin to fully heal.
Estheticians who are not working in a medical setting perform light to moderate peels only.
Deep peels are performed by a physician, or under a physician’s supervision, for your safety.
What about home care:
Much of the success of maintaining a visible improvement after treatment depends on consistent, correct home care.
Your esthetician is trained to select the products that will most benefit your skin, and to advise you on how to maintain your professional results between visits.
Like medical or dental care, following the right daily regimen at home is essential if you are to get the most out of your visits to a professional.
Visiting an esthetician:
It is always a good idea to schedule a consultation appointment prior to your first treatment, especially if you are new to esthetic treatments.
This gives you and your therapist a chance to discuss your goals and expectations for the first visit, and long term goals for the future.
During a consultation, your therapist will go over an extensive intake form and most likely do a cleansing of the skin followed by a detailed skin analysis.
This will give your therapist the information she/he needs to create an individualized treatment plan, both for a series of professional treatments and recommendations for products you can use at home.
