Hello , I'm fairly new to the industry . I've been reading Everything I can get my hands on also surfing the  internet. Glad to have found you all . I've read about peels, I've done enzyme peels, and I've been using a 20% glycolic peel on my self . Wondering if anyone can help me to understand what is meant by layering  a peel ? I'm just not sure where to start, I have  been working in an Aveda Salon/Spa . Love the products but, there is'nt alot you can really do . Very limited. But still need to know about peels and Where or how do you learn to do chemical peels . Is there classes that  teach them? How did everyone else start out any help or ideas would be GREATLY appreciated Thanks much

I have signed up to take the PCA skin seminar. I really hope this is as informative and as good a product line for facial peels (includes the art of layering) as I have seen in comments.

Aveda is awesome but yes the exfoliation realm is limited. Layering a peel is when you place on a peel and then place another type or the same peel on top of it to make the first one more potent.


The best way to learn about peels in general is to take post graduate classes at places like International Dermal Institute or something like that. Another option is to find a line that you are interested in and take some to the product knowledge classes that they offer. The latter can be free or minimal in charge. You can always see what classes they have available at conferences like Face & Body.


Hope that helps.

I highly recommend checking out the facial infusions by Osmosis. Loooove them and they are so gentle while giving amazing results. I plan to use them in my practice.

Hi, I have been in practice for 5 years now, I started using Rhonda Allison about 2 1/2 years ago.  the company specializes in chem peels, especially layered peels, they have excellant education and  customer service. I strictly follow her protocols, as they are tried and true. Love love love the product line. It sells itself the clients love it!

I believe anything 30% and under I can do as far as Glycolic peels. But I would love to find some classes that offer more training on Skin peeling with the glycolics and the lactics ect. I have been scouring the internet for all the info i can get at the moment . Hungery for knowledge lol ! very exciting. How long have you been in the industry and where did you start out at ? Any info is more then welcome :)Thanks much Nina

Hi Cheryl,


Depending on what state you live in you may need an extra certificate to do Chemical Peels just like with Micros. Only certain Peels can be layered and it depends on every clients tolerance and reaction to the chemical as well. Hope that helps a little.
