Before we get started with any treatment, we will have a no-obligation consultation to pinpoint any issues and talk about your goals. This conversation will involve relevant medical and family history to ensure the treatment you are seeking is right for you.
We will then discuss your expected results and any associated risks with the procedure before moving forward.
We offer Skinceuticals’ Gel Peel, which consists of 20% glycolic acid and 10% lactic acid. This formula is designed to exfoliate skin while reducing irritation and dryness.
First, we’ll protect certain sensitive areas of your face with petroleum jelly and goggles. Next, we will apply the peel solution to your face. After the appropriate process time, we will neutralize and remove the peel with warm water. We may also apply a special calming mask for 5 minutes or so after your treatment to give you optimal results.
Your skin may feel a little bit sensitive immediately after treatment, but it should subside shortly.
Within 10 to 15 days, the outer layer of skin will most likely have completely peeled away. For best results, you will probably need 4-6 treatments, each spaced approximately 2 weeks apart.
