When will I see results and how long will they last?

Results may differ based on the number of sessions attended. In general, after undergoing the treatment, the skin will experience a period of peeling and flaking that lasts approximately one week. During this time, it is common for the skin to take on a sunburned appearance and feel dry. However, once this phase has passed and the old skin has shed away, you will be left with revitalized and radiant-looking skin. It is important to note that the extent of peeling does not necessarily indicate how effective or successful the treatment was. To achieve optimal outcomes from this procedure, it is usually recommended to undergo multiple treatments – typically, no less than three sessions are advised. Continuing with a medical-grade skincare routine can help maintain these results over time.
