What to Expect From Your Facial or Peel Treatment
All of our facial and peel treatments are performed by a highly trained and licensed aesthetican to ensure maximum safety and effects while minimizing discomfort during and after treatment. Facials and peels are non-to-minimally invasive. Peels can be performed on their own or as an add-on to another service.
Our premium facial treatments are consciously designed to cleanse, exfoliate, and moisturize the skin using high-quality serums and medical-grade products. Recovery time for facials is little to none, though it’s best for patients to avoid heavy makeup and skin care products and postpone exercise until the following day.
For patients desiring more dramatic results, we offer a range of chemical peel treatments to resurface the skin, reduce fine lines and wrinkles, repair sun damage, and improve the appearance of acne or facial scars. During the procedure, our provider will safely apply a chemical solution to remove dead skin, dermal debris, and pore impurities. The recovery time for a chemical peel depends on the depth of peel received, but patients can expect some redness, tightness or irritation for one to two weeks after the procedure. Follow your provider’s post-procedure directions and recommendations.
You will see visible results immediately following your facial treatment, including cleaner pores, increased hydration, and brighter, dewy skin. Patients who receive a chemical peel will notice results after the skin has healed (one to two weeks). Lighter chemical peels will yield improved skin texture, tone, and smoothness. Medium to deep chemical peels produce more dramatic results, including sun damage repair, improvement in the appearance of acne or scarring, and correction of irregular pigmentation.
A regular facial or peel routine is recommended to maintain peak skin health and performance. Your provider will help you establish a treatment routine based on your skin type and desired outcome.
Risks & Side Effects
While the risks and side effects of facial treatments are little to none, please contact your provider if you experience prolonged redness, irritation or an allergic reaction. Temporary side effects are common in patients who receive a chemical peel. These include:
- Mild to severe swelling or stinging (depending on the depth of peel)
- Swollen eyelids
Please contact your provider if you have any concerns regarding your healing process. Your provider may recommend a follow up appointment to monitor your healing.
