How many treatments will i need?

A course of 3 is recommended for the best results.


As you know the skin is a very complex organ and will respond in different ways with different people, it really depends on the client’s background regarding medication, skincare products, Fitzpatrick etc.

When the skin is introduced to active ingredients for the first time it can on some occasions become over stimulated to quickly causing the skin to respond by creating a dermal clear out, slight tenderness, an erythema, slight flacking due to the cell renew process becoming faster, these are not bad reactions, they are normal skin reactions a client with an unbalanced, dehydrated skin may experience.

  • Directly after your Salicylic Acid peel you may experience some redness, this will fade within 24 hours
  • Three to six days following your peel you can expect some skin flaking, please do not exfoliate this as your skin will be sensitive.
  • As with all acne treatments you may experience a breakout following the peel, this is the pores being naturally cleansed and will lessen after each treatment.
  • Total recovery time, including peels and breakout could be seven to ten days.


You will need to prep your skin prior to treatment and the time prepping will depend on your Fitzpatrick. You will need to use DermaQuest products to prep. This will be discussed in your consultation with your Meliz.
