Advanced Corrective Peel

What Is a Chemical Peel?

A chemical peel is a skin treatment used to improve and smooth out the surface of the facial skin. A chemical solution removes the top layers of skin allowing the dead surface skin to peel off. The peeling process leads to new skin growth, which is usually smoother, healthier, and less wrinkled compared to the old skin. Chemical peels should be performed by aesthetic professionals.

  • Clients should expect the peeling process to be from 5-10 days after treatment and should avoid all sun exposure, swimming, sweating, and makeup. For optimal results, a series of 4-6 treatments every 4 weeks is recommended.

  • Electrolysis

  • Waxing

  • Depilatory creams

  • Laser hair removal

  • Any exfoliating products

  • Any products that may be drying or irritating, including products containing salicylic acid, alpha hydroxy acids, vitamin C, hydroquinone, retinoids, and prescription medications.

  • Shaving of the area to be treated

 

 

POST-Treatment Instructions

For two days post-procedure:

  • Stay cool! Heating internally can cause hyperpigmentation.

  • Do not put the treated area directly into a hot shower spray.

  • Do not use hot tubs, steam rooms, or saunas.

  • Do not go swimming.

  • Do not participate in activities that would cause excessive perspiration.

  • Do not use loofahs or other means of exfoliation.

  • Do not direct a hair dryer onto the treated area.

  • Do not apply ice or ice water to the treated area.

 

General guidelines:

  • After receiving a chemical peel, the skin may look and feel like a mild windburn for the next 2 or 3 days. After 48 hours, a slight flaking may occur for 3 to 5 days which can easily be controlled with moisturizers.

  • It is recommended that makeup not be applied on the day of treatment, as it is ideal to allow the skin to stabilize and rest overnight.

  • To minimize side effects and maximize results, use the post-procedure solution for 3 to 5 days or until flaking has resolved.

  • Moisturizer should be applied at least twice a day but can be applied more frequently for hydration and to decrease the appearance of flaking. We recommend SkinCeuticals Epidermal Repair. 

  • Avoid direct sun exposure and excessive heat. An SPF of at least 30 must be used daily.

  • Do not go to a tanning bed for at least two weeks post-procedure. This practice should be discontinued due to the increased risk of skin cancer and signs of aging.

  • Do not pick or pull on any loosening skin. This could potentially cause hyperpigmentation.

 

Do not have any other facial treatment for at least 2 weeks after your peel. You may resume the regular use of retinoids, alpha-hydroxy acid, beta hydroxy acid, vitamin C, or bleaching creams ONLY after the peeling process is complete.
