How does it work?
Peels treat a wide range of skin concerns.

Peeling usually involves redness followed by scaling that ends within three to seven days. Mild peels may be repeated at one to four-week intervals until you get the look you’re after.

There certainly are some chemical peels that can be applied in a matter of minutes and most likely would therefore require multiple treatments in order to give the affect that is desired.
A light chemical peel or glycolic peel will last 1 to 2 months. About 4 to 6 monthly treatments work well to maintain fine wrinkles, discolouration and photo damage, and once this series is over, maintenance or “lunchtime” peels can be scheduled as needed. Light peels require very little downtime.
Who doesn’t want baby soft skin? We naturally shed and replace our skin cells every few days, but as we age this process slows down. With most treatments there is always maintenance. Having peels on a regular monthly basis, will keep your skin soft, bright and glowing!
