Arctic Peel

Effectively Exfoliate your Skin on a Deep Level

The “weekend” skin peel is a great way to freshen your appearance and improve your overall skin clarity and smoothness, reducing the appearance of fine lines. 

The arctic peel is designed to treat conditions associated with aging and an active lifestyle. Some patients undergo a series of two to four times over six to eight weeks to help with keratosis and hyperpigmentation, acne scarring and deeper wrinkles.

How do you prepare for a chemical peel?

To maximize the benefits of your treatment, you must prepare your skin beforehand.

  • Don’t exfoliate. Since a chemical peel is an in-depth exfoliation, it’s important that you don’t exfoliate for at least one week before your appointment. Check ingredients in your daily skin care products that may have an exfoliating effect. Using such products prior to your treatment could cause damage to your skin.
  • Refrain from using make-up. Take a break from wearing makeup for a few days before your treatment and let your skin detox! 
  • Avoid the sun. Avoid the sun as much as possible prior to your treatment, and if you are outside, make sure to wear a wide-brimmed hat and sunblock (at least SPF 40).
  • Stay hydrated. Drink lots of water. Your skin should be well-hydrated on the day of your chemical peel. Make sure you stop using any products that dry out your skin a few days prior to your appointment.
