  • How long until I see results from the Salicylic Peel?

    The time it takes to see results depends on the skin’s condition to start with and the type of concern we are treating. A series of peels is recommend for targeting blackheads and congestion with best results seen after 2-3 peels. For severe acne approximately 6 peels are usually recommended. After just one peel you will notice a smoother, softer complexion, decreased oil production and less breakouts and congestion from around day 10.

    A Salicylic Peel can be done every 2 to 4 weeks. We recommend a series of treatments for best results.

*Results and longevity of treatments vary on an individual basis and can be dependant on a person’s age, genetics, skin type, skin condition, environmental factors and lifestyle habits. Just like ageing is a natural process that occurs over time, preventing, achieving and maintaining results is also a gradual process that may involve more than one treatment.
