Chemical Peels

A chemical peel is a technique using chemical solution to remove layers of skin, revealing the more youthful skin underneath. It's recommended to have a chemical peel done in a series of 4 to 6 times- 3-4 weeks apart. Here are some important homecare tips for you.

  • Optimize Healing by being gentle to the skin

  • Refrain from steam, scrubs, or exfoliation procedures for a minimum of 7 days

  • DO NOT USE washcloths, face brushes, or other device until skin has finished peeling

  • Avoid tasks that increase heat in skin or body during the peeling process

  • DO NOT pick at, pull, or in any way try to take off peeling skin. Let the process happen naturally or you’ll risk permanent damage such as hyper/hypo pigmentation or scarring. You may carefully trim excess skin with scissors

  • Use only a gentle cleanser and mild hydrating lotion AM and PM as recommended by your licensed professional for 2-3 days after the peel and during the peeling process. Resume usual home care products as skin allows (approximately day 5-10)

  • Once your skin returns to its normal state, you should use a customized recommended preventive, corrective, and protective homecare regimen, as suggested by your licensed professional

  • AVOID THE SUN - use protective hats, glasses, clothing

  • In the morning and throughout the day, apply a sunscreen such SPF 30 or higher and avoid sun

  • Use of make-up is at the discretion of the client
