Remember before you do a body peel you need to Prep and understand Which Acid is the Best Choice for you! Watch This Video First:
When you peel your body the skin is much thicker than the face. This leads to a longer process. Generally it will take 30 full days to complete a body peel. You will also use a stronger acid on the body - or in some cases more layers of an acid.
Please keep in mind that we do not want to use too much TCA on a single day. If you are doing larger body parts (torso or legs) ... you will want to break this up a bit.
For example: Do your upper legs today and then your lower legs tomorrow. Or do your arms today and your face/neck tomorrow.
The same will go if you are using jessners - *which is very good for hyperpigmentation on the body. Jessners can be used alone or as a first layer to a TCA peel of 20% or 13%. We do not recommend it prior to a 30%. That is too strong for most.
Watch this video to see 2 versions of a body peel. One with TCA and the other with Glycolic.
*Remember if you have ethnic/darker skin you will need to pretreat with a melanin inhibitor for 2-4 weeks and use a milder percentage. 20% would be a better option for the body than a 30% if you have olive or darker skin tones.
