We carefully have our lead aesthetician look at your face or other area you are considering a peel on and determine what you need. In most cases our aestheticians are licensed to do these peels but by Nevada law must call them “chemical exfoliations”, which is what most light peels are. The deeper peels are done only by trained medical staff and will be done as a medical procedure. The deeper peels can penetrate as far as the “papillary dermis” or “live skin” leaving your dead skin, which is the skin you see every day, as a sort of bandage over your now improved skin.
You will feel a moderate amount of pain, though we do minimize this, and after that subsides you will feel a moderate sensation of being sun burned. You will likely swell, depending how deep we go, and we will advise you not to pick at the skin as it first turns brown, like a deep tan, then slowly sloughs off revealing new, younger, more radiant and less flawed skin. Keep in mind most peels are not this deep and require little to no down time, the deepest of our peels, which are medical grade, will require downtime due to swelling and peeling though most patients feel confident to go about their daily activities within hours or at the most a day.
