SOMETHING I DIDN'T COVER AND
YOU STILL HAVE QUESTIONS? 

Please don't hesitate to CONTACT ME DIRECTLY

  • I DON’T NEED A SUNBLOCK IF MY MAKEUP HAS SPF RIGHT?

    Most likely no.
    To be effective, sunscreen should be applied at 2mg/cm2 and reapplied every 2hours or after swimming or excessive sweating to maintain stated SPF, which for face and neck is ½ teaspoon. I always tell my clients putting a little sunscreen or sunblock IS NOT AN INVISIBILITY CLOAK it is just better than being buck naked to the sun.

  • I HAVE SENSITIVE SKIN, CAN I STILL GET A PEEL?

    If you have eczema or reactive skin I don’t recommend peels but I still want you taking care of your skin and I can help you get on a healthy regimen.

  • DO PEELS HURT?

    Depending on the type of treatment there will be anywhere from a mild tingling sensation to an intense itchy, prickly, or burning sensation but it is very temporary. I would call some of the treatments intense but I wouldn’t say they are painful.

  • HOW LONG DO THE RESULTS OF A PEEL LAST?

    Your at home regimen greatly affects your results and how long they last but here is my general opinion: Mild treatments like enzyme or Vitamin C peels will exfoliate the skin and leave it smooth and glowy for a couple weeks. Medium treatments that cause a little flakiness can leave the skin smoother and softer for 2 to 6 weeks. The results of more intense treatments can cause the skin to shed and will bring smoothing and pigment lifting results that will last for up to a couple months.

  • HOW MANY TREATMENTS WILL I NEED?

    This depends on a few factors that we will discuss in our first session:

    -what are the current challenges

    -what your skin goals are

    -how aggressively are you looking to work toward those goals

  • HOW DO I GET RID OF DARK SPOTS?

    This is the trickiest to treat safely and effectively and takes the most commitment to the process in order to achieve the best results. Monthly peel treatments combined with an aggressive at home care regimen is required to migrate pigment to the surface of the skin. You have to stay out of the sun, period. There are so many factors that come in to play I have to see you in person to come up with your customized plan but you should mentally prepare for intense peel treatments, at home use of retinol, vitamin c, hydroxy acids and pigment-correcting products.

  • ARE THE PRODUCTS YOU USE CHEMICAL-FREE?

    No. Chemical is not a bad word and our bodies are literally chemical factories. Our skin responds to chemicals in products to bring great results when combined expertly, at the proper Ph, at the correct percentages and ratios.

  • ARE WIPES THE SAME AS WASHING MY FACE WITH CLEANSER?

    No.

  • HOW DO I PREP FOR A PEEL?

    Make sure you have stopped Retinol/ Retin A and strong hydroxy acids at least 3 days prior your peel. Avoid coming in with a sunburn or sensitized skin. If you are experiencing a cold sore breakout or pink eye you will need to reschedule your appointment. Message us if you have another concern not listed here.

  • WHAT DO I DO AFTER I GET MY PEEL TREATMENT?

    Following your treatment, you will receive customized detailed instructions, but here are some general rules ...

    -don’t pick or scrub your skin

    -don't go into the sun without a hat and sunblock

    -avoiding intense workouts for 24-48 hours post-treatment

    -embrace Aquaphor and reapply several times per day - if you are experiencing itching or burning you can also apply hydrocortisone 1% up to 4x per day, avoiding eye area

    -vitamin c serum may briefly burn when applied, that’s normal - if it’s longer than a brief burn, discontinue for a day or two until the skin feels back to normal

    -you can wear makeup it just won’t look very good - I recommend tinted SPF

    -no Botox or fillers 72 hours prior to your treatment, or as advised by your injector
