Chemical Peel Care
WHAT ARE THE PRE CARE INSTRUCTIONS FOR CHEMICAL PEELING?
Typically, we ask that you discontinue the use of retinoic acid products
and glycolic acid products for 3 to 4 days before your chemical. In
addition, we will prescribe an antiviral medication which is taken 1 day
before your procedure for deep peels if you are vulnerable to cold sore
HOW MUCH DISCOMFORT CAN I EXPECT?
There is minimal if any discomfort with this treatment.
HOW LONG WILL I STAY RED?
There can be some minor redness and peeling of the skin. This quickly
disappears within a matter of days unless you receive a deep peel such
as the Melanage peel
WHAT ABOUT POST OP CARE?
We recommend emu oil and sunscreen post peel. It is important to stay
out of intense sun for at least one week after your treatment.
Concealing makeup, e.g. Jane Iredale™, can be used to minimize redness.
Chemical Peel Results
HOW LONG WILL THE EFFECTS OF THE TREATMENT LAST?
The benefits from chemical peeling can be seen for months. Repeat
treatments are especially benefical and are offered as one of the
benefits of our Skin Club.
