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. Often times what may seem unusual to you is really very normal and finding out will save you needless concern.
