Post-Treatment Instructions

SkinMedica™ Rejuvenize Peel™

Post Peel Instructions:



-It is imperative to use a Broad-Spectrum UVA/UVB Sun Block of at least 30 and avoid direct sunlight immediately following the procedure and for at least 1 week.

-It is expected for the skin to be more red than usual for 2-5 days. Strenuous exercise should be avoided during this time.

-The skin may look and feel like a mild windburn for the next 2 or 3 days prior to peeling. After approximately 48-72 hours from peel application, the skin will start to peel. This may last 2 to 5 days.

-DO NOT PICK OR PULL THE SKIN.

-When washing your face, DO NOT SCRUB and do not use a washcloth. Use a gentle cleanser that does not contain soap.

-SkinMedcia™ TNS Ceramide Treatment Cream should be used at least 2 times daily immediately after cleansing UNTIL PEELING BEGINS.

-Once the peeling process begins, a layer of SkinMedica™ Restorative Ointment should be on the skin at all times.

-Once the skin starts to heal, resume use of SkinMedica™ TNS Ceramide Treatment Cream in place of the SkinMedica™ Restorative Ointment. The more often this product is applied, the better and quicker skin will heal.

-Let the skin shed at its own rate to avoid scarring or rashes.

-The regular use of Retinoic Acid, Vitamin C, Salicylic Acid, Alpha-Hydroxy Acid, scrubs and/or bleaching creams can be resumed only after the peeling process in complete (usually around 7 days).

-Wait 1 week or until flaking or mild irritation subsides before having ANY OTHER FACIAL PROCEDURES, including:
• Facials
• Microdermabrasion
• Laser Treatments/Laser Hair Removal
• Facial Waxing
• Injectable Filler
• BOTOX® Injections
