CHEMICAL PEELS

  • Do not go swimming for at least 24 hours post-treatment.

  • No strenuous exercise that causes sweating. Avoid jacuzzis, saunas, or steam baths until the skin is healed.

  • Do not use makeup for 24 hours post- treatment.

  • It is important that you avoid direct sunlight for at least 1 week, and make using a sunscreen with at least SPF 50 a long term part of your daily routine.     

  • Patients with sensitivity to the sun should take extra precautions to guard against sun exposure following the procedure as they may be more sensitive following the peel.

  • Your skin may be more red than usual for 2-3 days.

  • Approximately 24-48 hours after the treatment, your skin will start to peel. This peeling will generally last 2 to 7 days. DO NOT PICK OR PULL THE SKIN.

  • Apply a light moisturizer with sunscreen as often as needed to relieve dryness and tightness.

  • Do not have any other facial treatments for at least two weeks after your peel.
