Frequently asked questions

Q: Do theses peels work for all skin types?

A: The peels can be tailored to the individual and work on most skin types.

Q: Is there downtime?

A: Depending on the solution used, the skin may continue to peel after treatment as the dull surface layers shed. There is some downtime required for both the Vitalize and Rejuvenize peels, though it is minimal compared to other surgical and non-surgical procedures. What to expect and post-peel instructions will be discussed in detail at your consultation.

Q: How long will the results of the peel last?

A: The results of a peel are fairly long-lasting; with retreatments being performed once your skin becomes dull again, usually every 3-4 months. A broad-spectrum sunscreen is vital after a peel. Your skin will be even more susceptible to damaging UV rays. Sun protection preserves your results by preventing additional sun damage.

Frequently asked questions

Q: How does the Perfect Derma Peel compare to other peels?

A: After just one treatment of The Perfect Derma Peel, the overall complexion will appear smooth and fresh. Depending on skin conditions, multiple treatments may be required for desired results. 2-3 treatments applied once every 4 weeks will allow for optimal results when treating more severe skin conditions such as melasma and active acne.

Q: How long do the results last?

A: The results will last as long as the skin is maintained with appropriate skin care products such as The Perfect A., The Perfect C., and The Perfect Bleaching Cream. 2-4 treatments of The Perfect Derma Peel per year are suggested to maintain desired results for rejuvenation and maintenance.

Q: Does The Prefect Derma Peel burn?

A: There is a slight tingling or stinging sensation which subsides after 30-60 seconds. Some numbing takes place after the first pass of the solution is applied.

Q: What will I look like after the procedure and post peel?

A: Immediately after the peel is applied, the skin will either appear red, like a sunburn, or darker. On day 3, the peeling begins. The Perfect Derma Moisturizer reduces the visibility of peeling by hydrating. The peeling process is complete by day 6-7.
