Duration:5-20 minutes.


Step 1:Face is cleansed and any traces of make up is removed.

Step 2:Vaseline is applied near eyes,nose,mouth before applying peel.

Step 3:Doctor applies chemical peel on face.In this package contains combination of  glycolic acid,lactic acid,kojic acid etc lightening peels are used.The type,concentration and duration of peel left on skin again depends on skin type and tolerance.I was started on 35% Glycolic acid peel for 10 minutes and was increased to 50% and 15-20minutes.Kojic acid,Lactic acid,TCA(Retinoic acid) peels was used on alternate sessions.

Step 4:Neutraliser is applied and peel is removed.

Step 5:Cold compress is given to soothe the skin and minimise any redness or irritation.

Step 6:Face is wiped clean and Sunscreen is applied.

Post Procedure Care:

After procedure they advise and hand you out a list of precautions to be taken.I have discussed pre/post procedure care in detail in another post which you can check out all here.Some of the most important ones are:
1)Always wear a sunscreen.
2)Do not use harsh cleansers cause it may cause more dryness.
4)Do not use acne creams for the next 2-3 days.

If necessary they will give a prescription for acne applications and give you a skin care routine to be followed.

My Experience & Final Verdict:

My first package-acne free aqua therapy was to treat acne.I signed up on the second package-Intense Clarity Peel to treat my acne blemishes.Hyper-pigmentation was bothering me a lot,Epiduo which was prescribed Kaya Doctor itself helped tremendously with acne and blemishes but I still wanted faster results to opted for this package.Peel is customised as per your skin requirements.Though higher concentrations of Glycolic acid peels was used,I could tolerate well. After 6 sessions my face cleared up really well.I do have future plans for laser and if I do sign up,you can expect a review from me. Laser gives faster results when compared to peels in terms of skin lightening.If not Laser, I am thinking of signing up another peel package for skin maintenance once in a while.For now I am following Epiduo Acne Regimen,which you can check out here.As I said before you get a free product when you sign up on their packages,this time I got Kaya Soothing Cleansing Gel which I have reviewed here.If you have any questions,please drop a comment below :)
