Immediately after the procedure some clients may have a “white/chalky” tint to their skin. This usually subsides on its own within 30 minutes and you will be able are able to return to your regular activities.
The second day:
The skin looks darker, more like a tan and can start feeling a little course to the touch. Please do not moisturize your skin until the peeling begins.
The third day and following:
Usually by the third day the peeling process starts and lasts for about 2-3 days. The skin peels around the nose and chin area and moves outwards toward the ears and hair line.

An average recovery time takes about 7-10 days. Once the skin is peeled off, please remember, SPF is your BFF!
