How much will I peel?
Everyone experiences different levels of peeling, which depends on skin type, resilience, type of peel used, and the number of layers applied. Some people experience ‘sheeting,’ when large portions of the skin peel off at once. Some experience’ flaking,’ when small pieces of skin peel off, similar to dry, winter skin or mild peeling after a sunburn. Others experience exfoliation that is not visible. If you don’t peel, your skin is still exfoliating. In this case, the exfoliation is happening on a cellular level that can’t be seen by the naked eye. Typically, the deeper the peel you receive, the more extensive peeling you will experience.
What activities can I do after a peel?
Peels are easy to work into a busy lifestyle as there is no downtime — you’ll leave your appointment with a healthy glow and be able to carry on with your regular activities. However, there are steps to ensure that your results are maximized. You will receive a recommended post-procedure protocol to enhance your results following your peel. It would be best to avoid anything that causes sweating for 48 hours after treatment. Your clinician will give you more detailed instructions after your procedure which is catered to your skin’s needs.
