    What to expect after the peel / treatment?

    Read More

    One would experience 3 to 4 days of moderate ‘social’ downtime. Pigmentation often darkens before it gets better- this is a normal reaction. This deeper exfoliation produces noticeable flaking in the following 3-4 days after the peel (during downtime).

    Avoid all sun exposure for 14 days following a peel- even when indoors.

    Please note that all exfoliation treatments make your skin more sensitive to the sun thus a sunscreen of SPF 30 should be used daily, and sun exposure avoided.

Review -"Beautiful Skin"
Reviewed on 4 March 2015 by Virginia Mkhabela

Dr Chrisna examined my skin when I first came to Skin Renewal in March 2014 at the Fourways branch, and the prescription she made has worked wonderfully and my skin is currently looking healthy and beautiful. It seems like a miracle has transformed my skin. She is a very pleasant person and has advised me well. Nicole has also been my therapist, she has done incredibly well with my treatment and I will continue to do my treatments with her.
