Where indicated it may be combined with a mild TCA peel to treat deep seated pigmentation.
For best results, and to ensure that your skin is not harmed in any way, peels must always be performed by a professionally trained and trusted skincare therapist. Legs eleven’s experienced therapists are expertly trained in all of the Lamelle peel protocols. They offer clients a free consultation during which they will discuss your individual concerns, assess your medical & lifestyle history and perform a skin assessment in order to recommend the best peel for you. More than one peel type may be required to achieve the desired results, but your Legs eleven therapist will design a customised peel treatment course fully catered to your specific requirements.
Also critical to the success of your peel, is proper pre and post peel skin care. Your therapist will recommend home care products to prepare your skin for the peel and for post-peel use to prevent any side effects and ensure beautiful, long-lasting results.
For optimal results a course of 3 to 6 peels are recommended at intervals of every 2 to 4 weeks. Prices range from R390 to R650 per session depending on the type of peel with discounted package rates available.
