CHEMICAL PEELS

A chemical peel is a treatment used to improve skin texture and tone. An acid is applied to the skin to lower the PH, which loosens the connections between dead skin cells, including exfoliation and stimulating new cell growth. This process causes superficial layers of dead skin to peel off, revealing a smoother and more radiant complexion.

HOW TO PREPARE FOR YOUR PEEL

We recommend you stop using any products that contain active ingredients such as retinoids/Retin A, Vitamin C, or any alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs like glycolic acid & lactic acid) or Beta hydroxy acid (BHAs like salicylic acid) at least 7 days prior to treatment. Do not have skin treatments of any kind for at least 7 days prior to treatment.

THE EXPERIENCE

Your face will be cleansed and dried. You may feel a warm and tingling sensation that peaks and then dissipates within a couple minutes of peel application. The peel is precisely timed and generally the treatment is well tolerated. Once the peel is neutralized, a soothing medicated moisturizer is applied to calm and rebalance the skin. Lastly, a non-chemical SPF is applied to protect your skin from UV damage.

WHAT TO EXPECT

Initially the skin feels slightly tender and more sensitive as the epidermis renews itself. Peeling does not always occur, however, if it does peeling it usually only lasts 3-5 days after treatment. After this you will see baby fresh new skin emerging and so you will want to protect it with high-quality products at home. Your Clinical Aesthetician will guide you in choosing skincare products to use after the post-peel kit is used.

AFTER CARE:

DermNurse provides a free post peel kit containing cleanser, moisturizing/recovery cream and non-chemical SPF to use immediately following the peel for up to 4 days. Light day makeup can be worn if necessary.
