Q; How do I select the right sunscreen?
A: When selecting a sunscreen you should always purchase one with SPF 15 or higher, you should also select broad or full spectrum sunscreen because it is designed to protect you from UVA and UVB rays.
Q: Do chemical peels hurt?
A: In general you can experience mild stinging sensation during light to medium peels, but there should be NO PAIN! If you do experience pain the peel should be rinsed off immediately with cool water to neutralize the peel.
Q: Will I breakout after a facial?
A: When doing a lot of extractions, sometimes not all of the lodged oil will come out and because we don't force anything that doesn't want to come out, some purging can occur a day or two after a facial as the pore does its own self-cleaning.
