Resource Center Post-Treatment Instructions SkinMedica™ Illuminize Peel™ Post Peel Instructions: -It is imperative to use a Broad-Spectrum UVA/UVB Sun Block of at least 20 and avoid direct sunlight immediately following the procedure and for at least 1 week. -Because of the very superficial nature of this peel, you should not expect to see visible peeling. Occasionally you may have very minor flaking 3-4 days after the procedure. -Skin may appear slightly more red than usual for about 1-2 hours after the treatment. -Skin should look normal the next day. -When washing the face, use a gentle cleanser. Do not scrub or use a wash cloth. -Apply SkinMedica™ TNS Recovery Complex® 2 times daily followed by SkinMedica™ Ceramide Treatment Cream for 4-5 days after the peel or as often as needed to relieve any dryness. -The regular use of Retin-A, alpha-hydroxy acid (AHA) products or bleaching creams can be resumed after 4-5 days. -Wait 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 Please do not hesitate to call the office with any questions or concerns 217-355-7546.
