Green Peel FAQ
Is a Green Peel treatment painful?
During all of our Green peel treatments herbs are massaged into the skin. You will feel a stinging heat sensation during the peel. The herbal massage can be uncomfortable no different to a chemical peel.
The main difference between the stronger method, our GREEN PEEL Classic and the gentler methods ( Fresh Up / Mela White/Energy & Energy+ ) are the concentration of herbs applied, the pressure and duration of massage.
What is a green peel & how does it work?
The Green Peel is a herbal peel, a selection of eight carefully selected herbs, each containing specific enzymes, vitamins and minerals that will help to rejuvenate the skin when massaged in.
The Green Peel is known worldwide for its non-invasive skin rejuvenation results. Herbal Green Peel helps increase blood circulation to encourage a faster metabolism and collagen production. This helps result in the outer layers of the skin peeling away to make way for newer, more youthful skin. however depending on the type of green peel and strength chosen peeling may or may not occur.
Importantly, the Herbal Green Peel is a peel without any chemicals. Instead, the green peel is a compound of the herbs’ own micro-particles that polish the upper layer of the skin.
our green peels can be done on the body and the face. Body areas include: Vulva (Brightening vajacial peel), inner thighs, chest, back, elbows, knees and knuckles.
