What to Know Before Your Treatment: 

What Does it Do?

A Chemical Peel is a mid-deep level peel designed to improve the texture and appearance of your skin.

When Should I Not Get a Chemical Peel?

  1. You have active cold sores or warts, skin with open wounds, sunburn, excessively sensitive skin, dermatitis or inflammatory rosacea in the area to be treated. 

  2. History of herpes simplex.

  3. You have a history of allergies, rashes, or other skin reactions, or may be sensitive to any of the components of this treatment. 

  4. You have an allergy to salicylates (i.e., aspirin). 

  5. If you have taken Accutane within the past year, or received chemotherapy or radiation therapy.

  6. You are pregnant or breastfeeding (lactating).

How Do I Prep For My Chemical Peel?

There are many things you should avoid before getting a chemical peel. Make sure to avoid the following the week before your treatment: 

  1. Electrolysis

  2. Waxing 

  3. Depilatory Creams 

  4. Laser Hair Removal 

  5. Medical cosmetic facial treatments or procedures (e.g. laser therapy, surgical procedures, cosmetic filler, microdermabrasion, etc) should wait until skin sensitivity completely resolves before having a Chemical Peel

  6. BOTOX® injections should wait until full effect of their treatment is seen before receiving a Chemical Peel 

  7. THREE DAYS BEFORE YOUR CHEMICAL PEEL: Avoid these products and/or procedures: Retin-A®, Renova®, Differin®, Tazorac®

  8. Any products containing retinol, AHA or BHA, or benzyl peroxide 

  9. Any exfoliating products that may be drying or irritating Note: the use of these products/treatments prior to your peel may increase skin sensitivity and cause stronger reactions. 

What Should I Do After My Chemical Peel?

  1. After receiving a PCA Peel, you should not necessarily expect to "peel." However, light flaking in a few localized areas for several days is typical

  2. It is recommended that makeup not be applied the day of treatment, as it is ideal to allow the skin to stabilize and rest overnight. However, makeup may be applied 15 minutes after the peel if desired

  3. To minimize side effects and maximize results, use the Post-Procedure Solution for 3-5 days or until flaking has resolved. 

  4. Avoid direct sun exposure and excessive heat. 

  5. Do not go to a tanning bed for at least 2 weeks post procedure

  6. Do not pick or pull on any loosening or peeling skin. This could potentially cause hyperpigmentation. 

Things to Consider Post Treatment:

  • Do not put treated area directly in shower spray.

  • Do not use hot tubs, steam rooms or saunas.

  • Do not go swimming.

  • Do not participate in activities that cause excessive perspiration.

  • Do not use loofahs or other means of mechanical exfoliation.

  • Do not direct a hair dryer onto the treated area.

  • Do not apply ice to the treated area.
