Immediately after the skin may feel tight and appear more red than usual
The degree of peeling may vary depending on your skin type and skin condition at the time of the peel. The success of the peel should NOT be determined by the amount of peeling, but by the end results that the peel will produce.
Regardless of the degree of peeling, the skin is still sloughing off at an accelerated rate, which will result in the improvement in skin tone and texture, and diminishment of fine lines and pigmentation.
Peeling may start 1-3 days after treatment, usually starting around the nose and mouth
Avoid direct exposure to heat or sun for 48 hours post peel
Do not pick or scratch at treated skin - Premature peeling of the skin may cause hyperpigmentation.
Avoid the following products/procedures until your skin has completely stopped peeling: Retinoids or retinols, alpha-hydroxy acid (AHA) products or beta-hydroxy acid (BHA) products, bleaching creams, and facial waxing or the use of depilatory creams.
Wash face gently with mild cleanser and apply moisturizing cream twice daily.
Recommend follow up and repeat treatments in 4-6 weeks.
Best results are obtained in a series of 4-6 treatments.
