FAQ - Frequently Asked Questions
What is The Perfect Peel?
This unique formula debuts a new era in skin health. Never before has a chemical peel offered results at this level to all ranges of skin types. The Perfect Peel founds itself on a key anti-aging ingredient never before used in a peel: glutathione. Glutathione is the ultimate antioxidant known to prevent damage to important cellular components caused by free radicals and peroxides. As we age, our glutathione levels are depleted due to sun exposure, air pollutants and environmental stress.
The Perfect Peel is the only peel that premieres glutathione as a founding component and is the only true anti-aging ingredient offered exclusively in our formula. The Perfect Peel works from the inside to repair and nourish the skin by giving it a radiant glow, refining pores, improving skin hyperpigmentations, lifting melasma, diminishing fine lines and wrinkles, eliminating acne and preventing acne marks. Most importantly, the glutathione element defies the aging process.
Glutathione penetrates deep into the cellular level of the skin to fight oxidant damage and is the anti-aging answer to premature wrinkling. Glutathione is proven to reverse the melanin’s metabolism turning dark pigmentations (eumelanin) into light pigmentation (phaeomelanin).
The Perfect Peel is considered a strong peel and is effective in delivering a vast improvement with just 1 treatment. The peel is not painful during application and entails a slight sting for the first 30-45 seconds. Patients will experience peeling throughout days 3-6 and will be finished with the peel process by day 7-9.
How does The Perfect Peel compare to other peels?
The Perfect Peel combines powerful ingredients with effective acids to deliver outstanding results after one treatment. This unique formula allows for an increase in lifting of fine lines and wrinkles as well as reducing dark patches from sun damage or melasma. The Perfect Peel is a non-invasive, virtually painless treatment with 2-5 days of peeling. Peeling starts about 3 days after the treatement. Therefore, planning purposes, the peel should be done 10-14 days before your big event.
Who is NOT a candidate for The Perfect Peel?
• Patients who are pregnant or breast-feeding.
• Patients with an allergy to any Perfect Peel ingredient or to aspirin.
• Patients who used Accutane within the past 4 months.
• Patients undergoing chemotherapy and/or radiation therapy.
• Patients with a history of autoimmune disease or weaken immune system.
• Patients who recently had treatments such as waxing, electrolysis, laser or chemical exfoliants on desired treatment site.
How long will my results last?
As long as the skin is maintained with proper skin care products improved results will last. We recommend 2 – 4 Perfect Peel treatments per year to sustain desired results for regular maintenance and rejuvenation.
Alternating The Perfect Peel with micro-needling has produced substantial positive results for our patients.
What skin types respond well to the The Perfect Peel?
All skin types (Fitzpatrick 1-6) and all ethnicities are safe to treat and will benefit from The Perfect Peel.
How many treatments are necessary for visible improvement?
After one treatment of The Perfect Peel, overall skin tone and complexion will appear smooth, glowing and fresh. Depending on skin conditions, multiple treatments may be necessary for desired results. A series of 2-3 treatments applied once every 4 weeks will allow for optimal results for more severe skin conditions such as melasma and active acne.
How long will my results last?
As long as the suggested treatment plan is maintained with proper skin care products as recommended by your treatment provider, results can last upwards of 4-6 months with as little as 1 treatment. We recommend averaging two to three (2-3) treatments per year to sustain desired results for regular maintenance and rejuvenation.
What skin types respond well to the PRF Treatment?
All skin types (Fitzpatrick 1-6) are safe to treat!
How long does the process take?
The Perfect Peel application only takes 15 minutes to administer.
How severe is the peeling and what is the duration of the peeling process?
The amount of peeling skin associated with The Perfect Peel is mainly a sloughing of thin sheets of the top layers of the skin (epidermis) that begins around day three and generally is completed by day six or seven.
What will I look like during The Perfect Peel treatment process and post peel?
Immediately after the peel has been applied the skin will appear slightly pink and bronzed. On day three, peeling will begin around the nose and then extends to cheeks and forehead. If the neck is peeled, this may not be as dramatic as the face’s peeling. This is normal. The neck skin or other non-facial areas usually don’t experience as much peeling skin. It doesn’t mean that the peel was ineffective. This skin also has to be treated more gently than facial skin to maintain safety. The Perfect Derma Moisturizer will reduce the visibility of peeling by hydrating. By day six or seven the peeling process should be mostly complete (especially for facial skin).
Will my daily routine be affected after the treatment?
Normal activities may be resumed immediately post peel.
We recommend avoiding heavy exercise and excessive sweating during the peeling process. Also, it is extremely important not to pull or rub on peeling skin. If skin is prematurely or forcefully peeled, adverse side effects are higher.
Can make-up be worn post peel?
The day the peel is applied the patient should not put any make up or other products on his or her face post peel. Make-up may be worn on day 2 of the peeling process.
Can The Perfect Peel be applied to other parts of the body other than the face?
The face, neck, chest and hands are the most commonly applied areas. The Perfect Peel can be applied to other areas of the body, but the process and the results will not necessarily be the same. It may take more treatments to achieve the same effectiveness as facial skin. Again, this is because there are less pilosebaceous units off the face, which make this skin more sensitive. We take this into consideration when determining your treatment plan. Safety and effectiveness are both extremely important at Beautify Agency.
How will The Perfect Peel improve my skin?
The Perfect Peel will reduce or eliminate dark spots from sun damage and melasma. It will control acne and reduce acne scars. In addition, it will help erase fine lines and wrinkles, reduce enlarged pores and build collagen and elastin for a healthier, firmer complexion. The overall tone, texture and clarity of the skin will be improved.
Is sun exposure permitted post peel?
Sun exposure should be limited if not avoided before and during the peel process to avoid uneven exposure. When you expose your skin to the sun’s ultraviolet light rays before and after peels, you increase your risk of side effects from a peel, especially post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (paradoxical darkening from peel).
