The Perfect Derma Peel FAQ

Complimentary Consultation

Q: Is The Perfect Derma Peel treatment as harsh as I’ve heard?

A: A lot of unfair stigma comes attached to derma peels due to TV and movie representations, where characters get into trouble after having a derma peel. The character’s face might be red and inflamed, creating an additional problem for the character to deal with while they try to get whatever it is that they want. Of course the instances are magnified, which increases stakes and drives entertainment, but these TV and movie representations are false.

You might feel a slight stinging or burning sensation, but this will subside after half a minute or so. Numbing initiates after the first pass of The Perfect Derma Peel solution. We’ll also direct a fan or cool breeze towards the area to maximize patient comfort.
