The Chemical Peel Treatment Process at our Minneapolis Area Medspa Clinics
Your aesthetician will customize your peel or peel series to fit your desired downtime, price point, and skin concern. They will also tell you how to prep your skin for the peel and care for it afterwards. We have found that skin that is properly prepped gets dramatically better results.
On the day of your treatment, we cleanse your skin first, then apply the peel. We may apply one layer or several, depending on the desired outcome. It may feel like a light tingling or a mild sunburn, but this will subside within minutes.
Many patients love the way their skin looks immediately after a peel — fresh, dewy, and hydrated! Flaking typically starts two days after treatment. With some peels you may not even notice flaking, and with other peels it will be dramatic!
It is a good idea to schedule a peel on a Wednesday or Thursday so the exfoliation is complete by Monday. While results can be seen with one peel, a series of peels will yield a more dramatic improvement. Treatments take about 30 minutes and can be scheduled 2-3 weeks apart.
If you are a minimalist, a series of chemical peels quarterly along with sophisticated home care regime is a great skin care strategy!
