The Science of Chemical Peels
AlumierMD Chemical Peels cause controlled damage into the epidermis (top layer of the skin) or dermis to help stimulate new tissue to boost your natural collagen elastin & improve overall skin tone and texture.

What should I do to prepare for my Chemical Peel?
Female clients: Come to your appointment with a fresh makeup-free face. Also ensure no retinoids, AHAS/BHAS, active serums are stopped 7 days prior to your appointment.
Male clients: Ensure face is shaved a day prior to your peel and that retinoids are stopped 7 days prior to your appointment.
What should I expect after having a Chemical Peel done?
This depends on the type of Chemical Peel recommended by the professional. There is no downtime for the peel however with more advanced peels you may have minor redness, minor tightness a few days after the peel and minor flaking 3 - 7 days post treatment. We supply a Post-Procedure Kit to help enhance the results of the treatment and help with any possible redness, dryness and flaking. Ultimately after your AlumierMD peel, you will have fresh, hydrated and glowing skin.
When will I see results?
Beautiful skin doesn’t happen overnight. A single chemical peel can provide the immediate effect of bright and radiant skin. Results vary on the individual and treatment plan. Results can be seen as little as right after the treatment and can take up to 5-7 days after treatment. Best results we recommend a minimum of 6 sessions - 4 weeks apart.
