WHAT ARE THE DIFFERENT TYPES OF PEELS?

All Rhonda Allison treatment procedures are considered superficial; they do not penetrate beyond the epidermis or papillary dermis.  They are not to be confused with medical or physician-strength peels that affect the reticular dermis.

WHAT IS A CORRECTIVE PEEL?

A corrective peel is a technique which involves the application of a variety of enzymatic or acidic solutions to remove the damaged outer layers of dead skin cells from the skin’s surface.   The peels we use are from Rhonda Allison Clinical Skin care and deliver stunning results. 

Peels can improve many skin conditions such as:

  • hyper-pigmentation
  • rosacea
  •  acne
  •  sun damage
  •  photo aging

By removing the build-up of dead skin cells and stimulating the regenerative process, clients notice marked improvements in the formation of wrinkles and fine lines, texture and tone of the skin, hydration, reduced pore size, clearing of blemishes and more balanced oil production and an overall healthier skin appearance.

BEFORE YOU BOOK A PEEL

Peels are not for everyone.
This is why we require  a pre-peel consultation and facial that helps us determine the right peel for you.

We have a wide range of active ingredients in our peels - your skin type determines which is right for you. During your consult facial, we'll determine which corrective peel will be most appropriate for your skin.

WHAT TO EXPECT

Our corrective peels range from Progressive (mild), Mid Depth (medium) and Deep.  

The entire process takes about 30 minutes.  The peeling solution can feel very warm, tingly, itchy and hot.  The intensity varies depending on the strength of the peel.

Post peel the skin may be red and feel tight and irritated like a sun or wind burn.  The following days after your peel the skin can feel tight, dry and will flake and peel anywhere from 5 to 14 days depending on the depth of the peel.

You will be given post care home instructions the day of your treatment AND the outcome of the peel depends solely on YOU.

 You will need to refrain from:

  • PICKING!
  • Vigorous workouts
  • Sun exposure
  • Steam and Sauna
  • Using scrubs or exfoliants

 It's best not to use makeup during the peeling process. *Many makeup lines contain ingredients that will irritate or damage your new, already-sensitive skin.

BOOKING A PEEL

Why must clients receive a facial treatment from Skin and Tonic before booking a peel.  

  • This allows us to examine and evaluate whether the client is a good candidate for a peel.  
  • Determine if there are any contraindications to the products or treatments. The facial will also prep the client's skin which provides deeper exfoliation and better results!

ONE WEEK POST PEEL CHECK UP

It is important that clients return 7 to 10 days after their peel treatment.  This allows us to examine the skin and recommend future treatments.  We will also perform any extractions if needed, slough off excess peeling and infuse nutrients into your fresh new skin!
