I have a big event. When should I get a Power Peel?
We find that a lot of people wait until a day or two before a big event to get a Power Peel. But we recommend getting a Power Peel at least 7–10 days before a big event so that any skin irritation has subsided and the full effects of the Power Peel are noticeable.
What should I do to prepare for a Power Peel?
Our Power Peel focuses on the neck up (cleansing, toning, etc.), so you may want to remove your makeup and pull your hair away from the face. Cosmetics can be reapplied after the treatment. Men should be clean shaven, unless bearded. We recommend shaving the night before the treatment to reduce possible irritation.
What can I expect during a Power Peel treatment?
Prior to your facial, you will be asked to fill out a consultation form to help us identify your most important concerns. Your Power Peel will start with an initial consultation by our esthetician, who will view your skin under a magnifying lamp. Based upon the analysis, your esthetician will recommend the right treatment for you.
Your facial treatment will include a cleanse with steam, application of appropriate peel, facial mask, facial and upper shoulder massage, and finishing products such as moisturizer, eye cream, and SPF. In addition, your esthetician may recommend additional add-on treatments that will enhance your results, such as laser facials, lip/eye hydration, or oxygen hydration.
Can I get a Power Peel if my skin is broken out?
Facials help correct and maintain healthy skin, and most skin is not free of blemishes. Your esthetician will select the facial best suited for your skin type. If you have any open blemishes, your esthetician will work around those areas. In extreme cases, we may recommend that you see a cosmetic dermatologist.

Not all at-home products are the same; we offer a variety of high quality at-home skin care products that should be used between your facial treatments to maintain results. Please ask your esthetician for the products that are right for you.
What is a series of Power Peels and why is it recommended?

Most of our clients benefit from adding on other treatments to enhance the facial results and skin appearance, including laser facials and/or extractions.
