Q. How many peels can you do and how far apart should they be done?
A. For most patients, peels should be done three to four times a year starting at puberty to repair sun damage that is already present, and to avoid permanent scarring for those affected by acne.
The frequency of the peel depends on various factors, and will be determined by your doctor. For extremely damaged skin, Peels can initially be done once every week – every 2 weeks to get quicker desired results.
Q. How are Skin Tech Peels different from other peels?
A. Without exception, obsolete peels of the past epitomize the “No pain, no gain” approach to skin care. Before the Skin Tech peels the deeper the peel, the more painful, the more downtime, the better the results. Skin Tech peels combine the safest and most effective acids, yet it’s virtually painless with little downtime.

Q. How badly will I peel?
A. The skin peeling associated with the Easy TCA peel is a light, fluffy peel that will start on day three and generally be finished by the end of day four. The peeling is easily hidden by moisturizer. In some cases, the peel is virtually invisible. Patients using Retin A may experience heavier peeling. The peel can be modulated by your skin care provider to produce a deeper, more aggressive peel, if necessary, depending on your skin condition.
Q. What will I look like right after the Peel and during the next few days?
A. The skin will look slightly red and glowing immediately after the peel. On days one and two the skin will feel slightly tighter, with no visible signs of having had a peel. Any pigmented areas might appear slightly darker. On approximately day three, you will begin to peel. The first signs of peeling usually begin around the mouth area and continue for a day or two. With the use of a barrier repair cream, you may go about your usual daily routine. By day six or day seven you will be done peeling and the results are dramatic! If a more aggressive peel was performed, a secondary peel might occur around day seven.
