Frequently asked questions
1. Can a GREEN PEEL® treatment be performed during summertime?
Yes. Our GREEN PEEL® Herbal Peeling treatment is performed in more than 50 countries, amongst others in South Africa where the sun is shining almost all year long. A GREEN PEEL® treatment can be done at any season. However, intensive sunbathing should initially be avoided after a GREEN PEEL® Classic treatment, as the rejuvenated, fresh skin is particularly sensitive to sunlight.
2. Is a GREEN PEEL® treatment painful?
There are 3 methods of the GREEN PEEL® Herbal Peeling: Fresh Up, Energy and Classic. During all three methods our GREEN PEEL® Herbs are massaged into the skin. Depending on massage pressure and consistency of the skin, this can involve sparkling and prickling, but no pain. At the utmost the herbal massage can be slightly uncomfortable. The main difference between the stronger method, our GREEN PEEL® Classic and the 2 softer methods are pressure and duration of massage. This can’t be considered a wellness treatment, but it is well bearable.
3. Is a GREEN PEEL® treatment aggressive?
No. You can tell this by the fact that your skin therapist does not wear gloves during treatment. Our Herbal Peeling is purely natural and includes neither chemical substances nor abrasive particles.
4. Does the skin have to peel after a GREEN PEEL® Classic?
No. The strength of the skin peeling depends on individual condition. However, this has no influence on the effect of GREEN PEEL® Herbal Peeling. The herbs always initiate a renewal- and regeneration process in the skin.
5 .May I leave the house after a GREEN PEEL® Classic?
Yes, every skin is individual. Before the treatment, it is hardly possible to predict how intense the peeling will be. With most customers, the skin starts to peel on the 3rd day after the treatment. On day 5, after the mandatory Beauty Finish treatment, the peeling process is mostly completed. If you prefer not to be seen in public during the peeling process, you should schedule the GREEN PEEL® Herbal Peeling treatment for a Wednesday, so the peeling process will take place over the weekend. The post-treatment will follow on Monday then and downtime (if any) is minimized.
6 .What's the difference between GREEN PEEL® and fruit acid peels/ micro needling?
Our original GREEN PEEL® Herbal Peeling treatment is based on a medically refined and worldwide proven biological method, on a purely natural basis. It is safe and can be used with almost any skin type. GREEN PEEL® does not need machines and successfully solves various of skin problems.
The fruit acid peeling however is a chemical peeling, which is based on milk-, lemon-, apple- or wine-acid. A fruit acid peeling is preferrably done in low-sunlight months, as during the summer months there has to be paid a lot of attention to sun exposure. This kind of peeling r equires 8-10 sessions in weekly intervals before showing visible results.
Micro-needling is a relatively new instrument for treating aesthetic skin problems. Here the skin is injured with numerous small needles to stimulate its self-regeneration. Additionally, active ingredients are transfected into the skin. Some skin problems, such as scars, wrinkles, stretch marks can be improved by micro-needling.
7 .Does a GREEN PEEL® treatment cause my skin to be thinner and more sensitive?
No. After a GREEN PEEL® treatment the skin is young and fresh. Of course, this skin needs special attention. With every GREEN PEEL® treatment your skin becomes stronger, firmer and more resistant. The metabolism is activated, microcirculation as well as the interlocking of skin layers is improved. This in turn results in the skin receiving more oxygen and nutrients. The connective tissue fibers (collagenous and elastic fibers) are activated and metabolic wastes are reduced.
