FAQ’S SKIN

DO I HAVE TO REMOVE MY MAKEUP BEFORE A FACIAL?
No. You don’t have to worry about removing makeup prior to your appointment, as we will cleanse your skin for you to remove all traces of makeup before treatment.

WHAT DOES A SKIN PEEL FEEL LIKE?
Skin peels will range from a light prickling sensation to intense heat & prickling, based on the percentage & type of active ingredients in the peel. Erythema/redness is expected post treatment & settles within the first hour. Superficial peels do not require any down time & minimal flakiness of skin can sometimes be expected. Our therapist will advise you & explain in detail prior to your appointment your expected downtime and aftercare.

DOES SKIN NEEDLING HURT?
Skin needling can be uncomfortable on the nose, lip & forehead due to these zones being more sensitive with less padding. We offer our clients to have numbing applied for this treatment, so it is a more relaxing & enjoyable service. Numbing will need to be applied 20min prior to appointment.

WILL I SEE RESULTS AFTER 1 SKIN TREATMENT?
You will notice very superficial changes in the skin such as hydration & a glow to your appearance initially after your treatment. When we are working on congestion, ageing, uneven skin tone or texture concerns, results take a few treatments to be noticed. Skin is an investment and more of a lifestyle commitment. Our therapist goes through a detailed consultation when you first come in to experience Aesthete & will provide you with a customized skin plan. A skin plan commonly consists of an average of 6 treatments spread over 3-4mths to obtain optimal results. Maintenance treatments are required periodically depending on the skin.

HOW DO I CHOOSE THE RIGHT FACIAL FOR MYSELF?
For all our new clients we offer 1.5hr appointments which include consult & treatment. This allows our therapist to assess your skin & talk to you about any concerns you have & educate you on best recommended products & treatments. Our therapists will customize a skin plan & recommended treatment for you on the day based on your budget & skin goals.
