The first step of a Micropeel is a dermaplaning process, which frees the skin of dead cellular layers and proteins by reducing the top layer of skin. This lessens the appearance of fine lines and brown spots. A change in skin texture can be felt right away by just brushing your hands across your cheeks!
Depending on skin sensitivity, lactic or glycolic acid solution is then applied. This solution stays on the skin for at least 15 seconds but no more than 3 minutes. A slight stinging sensation might be felt, but it is only momentary. The part of the micropeel frees impacted debris from the pores.
Unlike a facial, most people notice a change in their skin right away after a micropeel. You might be pink for 2-24 hours depending on the type of peel used, You can apply makeup immediately after the procedure. Your aesthetician will help you determine how frequently you should have a micropeel based on the condition of your skin. More frequent treatments may product dramatic results.
After a micropeel, skin is temporarily more sensitive to the sun, so wear sunscreen every day. It should say “broad-spectrum” on the label, meaning it protects against the sun’s UVA and UVB rays.
