Pre & Post Care - Facials and Chemical Peels | Greenwich
Please observe the following after a Chemical Peel:
- Due to multiple variables, you may not peel, although light flaking in localized areas for several days.
- Your skin may experience residual redness for twenty-four hours.
- Do not apply makeup the day of treatment.
- Your skin may feel warm, tight and “pulled” for several days.
- Do not apply any skin care products containing alpha or beta hydroxyl acids, or other medication since they will irritate your skin. Cleanse the skin with a gentle non-acid cleanser.
- Do not pick, pull or remove any loose or exfoliating skin. This could result in permanent scarring and hyper pigmentation.
- No tanning or direct sun exposure for a minimum of 21 days following this procedure. The use of a sunblock a SPF 30 or greater is mandatory while undergoing treatment.
- Refrain from Laser / IPL, electrolysis, facial waxing or facial depilatories until healing is complete.
