WHAT SHOULD I DO BEFORE THE TREATMENT?

Do not use Retin-A for 1 week or AHA/BHA products for 2-3 days prior to the treatment. If you have a breakout of cold sores or fever blisters on the face before your scheduled appointment, please notify us and we will reschedule your appointment. Avoid sun exposure or sun burning before your scheduled appointment.

HOW MANY PEELS ARE NEEDED AND WHEN DO YOU START TO SEE BENEFITS?

With a lunch time peel, you may only experience microscopic flaking or no flaking at all within a few days of treatment. With medium depth peels, you may experience slight flaking to peeling of the skin for 3-7 days after treatment. If you do not experience flaking or peeling, this does not mean the peel was ineffective. The ingredients and delivery agents still worked. Please know that flaking or peeling of the skin is only a side effect of a peel.

 

If you have never received a peel or resurfacing treatment before or do not follow a good home care regimen, you will be more susceptible to seeing visual exfoliation, whereas someone who has regular treatments and has a professional home care regimen, will have healthier skin and not as much visual exfoliation. Either way, the peel is still doing what is needed to be done and you will see significant results.

WHAT SHOULD I DO BEFORE THE TREATMENT?

It is so important to use products that work in conjunction with your peels to help prevent and lighten discoloration, as well as, using hydrating and healing ingredients to reinforce the skin's protective barrier. Remember, 70% of your results comes from what you do at home! 

 

Avoid sun exposure, do not use Retin-A for 1 week or AHA/BHA products for 5-7 days or wait until the peeling stops.
