Is Microdermabrasion & Chemical Treatments right for you?

You must be seen previously before any peel or microdermabrasion treatment, for a client consultation and a skin analysis to determine what suitable regime will be recommended for your skin needs, and also your home care. Clients will fill out a detailed health and skin history form prior to starting any peel treatment.

Many clients will need a series ranging from 2-6 treatments, depending on skin issues.

Some clients will need “pre-treating” 2 weeks prior to treatment to prepare their skin.

Please  read the following list carefully to see if you are contrainindicated for treatment.


  • NO Botox injections within the last 24 hours

  • NO dermal-filler injections within the last seven days

  • Skin cancer
