This treatment may cause increased sensitivity to the skin depending on the skin type and home care regimen.
May include, but are not limited to, stinging, itching-irritation, redness, swelling, tightness, peeling and scabbing of the skin. Avoid sweating,exercising, hot baths or showers, scrubbing, picking or rubbing, which could lead to scarring.
The skin may appear red and flushed immediately after the treatment. On the second day, peeling may begin around the mouth, chin, cheeks. The neck and forehead are often the last areas to peel. Peeling usually occurs from the second and third day and may last until the seventh day following the treatment. It is important for you to understand the peeling process and not to pull on loose skin. Hyperpigmentation and infection often occur when loose skin is pulled.
A series of 3 treatments (maximum), 1-2 times per year, scheduled 4-6 weeks apart. This is NOT a regular monthly treatment.
There are alternative professional resurfacing treatments such as glycolic peels, lactic peels, pumpkin resurfacers, etc. on a monthly basis.
If you are currently using retinoids and/or alpha hydroxy acid products, they may be gradually re-introduced once the skin is healed; usually 5 to 7 days post peel. Protect the skin from direct sun exposure with a broad spectrum sunscreen for a minimum of 3 days post-treatment to prevent hyperpigmentation. A hat may be worn if necessary. Your compliance with the use of daily sun protection on an ongoing basis is mandatory, especially with exfoliation treatments.
You must cease using Retin A for two weeks and no facial waxing for one month prior to the TCA [7%]/Salicylic Acid [2%]
Peel. Clients using benzoyl peroxide products must cease use for one week prior to the peel. Those who are prone to herpes
breakouts can be referred to our physician for a prescription prior to the peel to help avoid breakouts during healing time.
Does it hurt?
Some people have different pain thresholds, but generally you may experience a hot stinging sensation.
