Chemical Peel Pre and Post Procedure Care

Chemical Peel Pre-Procedure Care

For best results, it is advised to avoid sun exposure (no tan permitted) and the following products & procedures at least two weeks prior to your treatment:

  • Pre-treat with Valtrex/ Anti-Viral medication if any history of cold sores (5 days before, 5 days after)
  • Electrolysis
  • Waxing
  • Depilatory creams
  • Laser hair removal
  • Any exfoliating products
  • Any products that may be drying or irritating, including products containing salicylic acid, alpha hydroxy acids, vitamin c, hydroquinone, retinoids, and prescription medications
  • Shaving of the area to be treated

Chemical Peel Post-Procedure Care

For two weeks or while you are peeling post procedure:

  • Stay cool! Heating internally can cause hyperpigmentation.
  • Do not put treated area directly into a hot shower spray.
  • Do not use hot tubs, steam rooms or saunas.
  • Do not go swimming.
  • Do not participate in activities that would cause excessive perspiration.
  • Do not use loofahs or other means of exfoliation.
  • Do not direct a hair dryer onto the treated area.
  • Do not apply ice or ice water to the treated area.

General Guidelines for Chemical Peels

  • Must pre-treat with Valtrex/ Anti-Viral medication if any history of cold sores. (5 days before, 5 days after)
  • After receiving a chemical peel, the skin may look and feel like a mild windburn for the next 2 or 3 days. After 48 hours, slight flaking may occur for 7 to 10 days, which can easily be controlled with moisturizers.
  • It is recommended that makeup not be applied the day of treatment, as it is ideal to allow the skin to stabilize and rest overnight.
  • To minimize side effects and maximize results, use the post-procedure moisturizer (Coconut Oil) for 3 to 5 days or until flaking has resolved.
  • Moisturizer should be applied at least twice a day but can be applied more frequently for hydration and to decrease the appearance of flaking.
  • Avoid direct sun exposure and excessive heat. An SPF of at least 30 must be used daily, and applied every 2 hours.
  • Do not go to a tanning bed for at least two weeks post procedure. This practice should be discontinued due to increased risk of skin cancer and signs of aging.
  • Do not pick or pull on any loosening skin. This could potentially cause hyperpigmentation.
