Custom Peel FAQ

How often should I get a Custom Peel?

  • Peels are best done in a series of 6 treatments, spaced 2-4 weeks apart. Ideally, we up the level with each peel, starting with level 1, then level 2, and then level 3. Doing it this way ensures that your skin gets accustomed to the peel process, and we are able to really treat the skin concerns that you are working on. Home care is necessary when doing a series of peels in order to see the best results, and to regenerate your skin safely and effectively.

How much peeling will I get from a Custom Peel?

  • The peels that we use at Skintuition are superficial skin peels, which means is that they work within the epidermis, and do not penetrate the dermis. Visible skin peeling is often a side effect of getting a professional peel. It may appear as flakey skin, or it may be considerable and peel off in larger sheets. But, visible peeling does not always occur with every client. The texture, tone and overall appearance of the skin can still be improved considerably whether or not peeling occurs. 

Are there any post facial instructions that I need to follow?

  • Avoid make-up and sweating immediately after your peel, as it may irritate your skin. Avoid direct sun exposure, saunas, hot tubs and steam rooms for 1 week. Wear SPF30 or higher daily and keep skin moisturized. No retinol, Retin-A, tretinoin, acids or exfoliation for 1 week before and after any peel.
