How can I maintain the results?

The GLYTONE by ENERPEEL® results will last as long as your skin is maintained with a proper skin care regimen (customized by your skin care professional).  For enhanced results, go on a customized post-peel protocol, avoid direct sunlight and apply Sunscreen Lotion Broad Spectrum SPF 40 daily.


What can be experienced with a procedure?

A peel procedure should take around 20 minutes depending on the type of peel you are having and the number of layers applied.  During the procedure it is possible to experience a mild tingling, itching and heating sensation.  These are completely normal and are temporary.  After neutralization, these symptoms should subside.  Follow post-peel care regimens to experience the benefits of the peel.

 Every peel procedure will cause some degree of flaking or peeling with varying amounts of redness post-procedure.  The degree and duration of flaking, peeling and redness are dependent upon the acid strength and type.  The day after your procedure you may start to feel skin tightness.  During the next 7-14 days flaking and/or peeling may occur.  If you do not experience any flaking or peeling, it does not mean that you will not achieve optimal results provided by GLYTONE by ENERPEEL® Peel systems.  All peel procedures cause sensitivity to heat and sun for several days.  It is critical to the success of the peel that you comply with post-procedure care requirements. Individual results and experience may vary.

Physician Grade Chemical Peels

Regular cell turnover and exfoliation is important to healthy skin.  With chronological aging, as well as exposure to environmental damage (including UV rays), our desquamation slows.  This can lead to buildup of dead surface cells, followed by an appearance of dull complexion, and compromised skin barrier function.  Chemical peels (such as GLYTONE by ENERPEEL ®) help to accelerate exfoliation revealing even and radiant complexion.

Chemoexfoliation from GLYTONE by ENERPEEL® utilizes unique acid solutions for specific skin concerns.  Our advanced peel systems are characterized by a patented technology that delivers optimal outcomes reducing the usual discomfort and social downtime associated with other peels.
