How often can I have this treatment?

The Essential Peptide Peel is a superficial treatment. It can be performed as often as every 2 weeks if desired. However your aesthetician will discuss a progressive treatment plan for you and advise on the amount of treatments needed and how often.

Does this treatment require any prep?

No, this is a Level 1 resurfacing peel with encapsulated Vitamin A. It is a superficial peel, which is gentle enough for all skin types and conditions. While it does not require any prep or skin priming prior to having the treatment, results will always be enhanced by using the correct home care products. You aesthetician or skincare specialist will discuss the use of products post-treatment in order to maximise the results and start priming the skin ready for Level 2 or 3 treatments. To get started we recommend using one of the new CosMedix 4-piece essential skin kits.
