Skin Care FAQ
How do I know if a peel or microdermabrasion is right for me?
Regardless of your skin type you can benefit from either of these treatments. We have a large range of peels for different skin types and conditions. You can setup a free consultation with one of our licensed estheticians for more information.
How often can I get a peel?
Mild peels can be done once a month. If you have acne prone skin or hyperpigmentation you should commit to five to ten peels in order to get the best results.
How often should I get a facial?
This depends on your skin type, skin goals and skin condition. Once a month may be ideal for someone who wants to take good care of their skin. We recommend getting a facial at least four times a year, when the seasons change.
After any facial service we recommend you wait at least 24 hours before applying cosmetics or going out in direct sunlight.
