Peels at AWC!
There are so many options when it comes to having a Facial Peel. AHAs, BHAs, Vitamin C.......it's a lot to sift through. I'm here to make it easier for you to under stand what does what to create a plan for smoother, blemish free skin.
It all starts out with a thorough consultation. Since every person can react to a peel differently it is important to know every aspect of your home care, lifestyle and expected results. Peels can range from no/light flaking all the way to a heavy/sheet peeling. You cannot just start at the top of intensity. If you have never had a peel treatment before, you will start with a light peel and work your way up. This ensures treatments are safe with minimal adverse side effects.
Now let's get down to business. This will explain what each peel does and what it treats.
