    The skin-focused esthetician sits down with the client to go through a questionnaire about the individual’s skin type to determine problem-areas, ensure that the individual is a good candidate for and best customize treatment to the direct needs of the individual.  Lactic and glycolic acid is used in the Maxi Peel Facial.

    First, a papaya enzyme is smoothed onto the skin.  The face is steeped with steam for seven to 10 minutes to allow the enzyme to work into the skin.

    The maxi peel itself, is custom-blended on the spot to take into consideration client sensitivity, acne and needs, and is applied onto the skin.  For example, Vasseur’s Benzo Clear 5 or 10 acne treatment can be applied directly to the peel for clients with inflamed skin. The client receives a relaxing scalp massage as the peel works into the skin for three to 10 minutes.
