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.


    -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

    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.
