THE NEXT DAY after a chemical peel - you must wash your face with a gentle cleanser
The day after the chemical peel and several days afterwards, the skin will feel tight and "pulled", raw and itchy. All this is normal.
Your skin will start to peel, 2 to 3 days after. Everyone peels differently.
Your skin may look darker in different spots and uneven after the chemical peel. Depending on your skin color, it may look either brown or red. THIS IS NORMAL. It is part of the process. It will lighten eventually but may stay that way for up to two weeks. Your skin will continue to flake for a week as well (and sometimes up to two weeks if we do a strong one)!
If there is excessive redness or any discomfort, please splash cold water or apply a cold compress. Please call us for further assistance!
It is best to hydrate the skin well with a moisturizer as and when required
For the next 2 days, do NOT: use Jacuzzi, steam room or sauna, go swimming, and participate in activities that make you perspire like the gym.
For the next 7 days: Do not get electrolysis, collagen injections, Botox, depilatories and facial waxing and bleach
Discontinue use of products containing Retino-A or AHA for 7 days prior and post service
For the next 3 weeks: Avoid direct sun exposure and excessive heat. Do not go tanning for at least 3 weeks. .
