Are there any post Peel instructions?

Published on January 10, 2018 by

It is crucial to the health of your skin and the success of your peel that these guidelines are followed.

  • It is important to use a sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30 and avoid direct sunlight for at least 1 week.
  • Your skin maybe more red than usual for 2-5 days. Please avoid strenuous exercise during this time.
  • Patients should avoid exposure to heat sources as these may induce sensitivity and swelling.
  • Approximately 48 hours after the treatment your skin may start to peel. The peeling will generally last 2-5 days. Do not pick or pull the skin. Allow the skin to peel at its own pace.
  • When washing the face do not use any exfoliating scrubs for up to 1-5 days.
  • The regular use of alpha hydroxy acids(AHA) products or bleaching creams can only be resumed AFTER the peeling process is complete.
