During your peel: A session generally lasts 20-30 minutes and is comprised of several steps: cleansing of the area to be treated, the application of the peel and finally, only in certain cases, neutralization.
After your peel: A few hours after the session a slight redness comparable to the effects of a mild sunburn will appear. The treated area will start to peel 3-4 days after the initial peel. Redness and peeling can last from 3-7 days, and varies depending on the skin condition you are treating and level of treatment you receive.
You MUST ensure that the treated area is protected from the sun for at least one month after treatment.
During the application of the product you will experience a slight tingling/burning sensation; this will subside in 3-5 minutes. A fan is used to alleviate any minor discomfort felt by the patient.
