POST CARE- CHEMICAL PEELS/MICROEXFOLIATION

It is crucial to the health of your skin and the success of your treatment that these guidelines be followed:

  • It is imperative to use sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30 and avoid direct sunlight for at least 1 week

  • Clients with hypersensitivity to the sun should take extra precautions to guard against exposure immediately following the procedure

  • Skin may appear slightly redder than usual after 1-2 hours after the treatment, but returns to normal coloring shortly after.

  • When washing the face, do not scrub; do not use a wash cloth. (Use your post treatment kit for the best results.)

  • Some clients may have minor flaking after the procedure

  • The regular use of Retin-A, AHA products, or bleaching creams can be resumed after 7 days.

  • Wait until flaking or mild peeling completely subside before having any other facial procedures.

  • Please avoid strenuous exercise, swimming, and saunas during this time

  • DO NOT PICK OR PULL THE SKIN. Allow the skin to peel at its own pace.

  • Smile! You are well on your way to a more BEAUTIFUL you! Enjoy!
