Chemical PEEL Treatments
PRO RESOURCE: This is the literature to present to each patient in advance of performing a chemical peel.
PREPARATION FOR A PEEL TREATMENT Results from your chemical peel treatment can be affected by a number of factors. To maximize the potential of your treatment and reduce the risk of complications, it is important to follow the pre-peel instructions outlined in this form. Also, take note of the post-peel instructions to ensure you book your treatment on an appropriate day.
It is recommended for all skin types to prepare for a minimum of 14 days prior to a peel using AlumierMD home care products including a medical-grade broad-spectrum sunscreen.
By improving skin health before your treatment, you will allow for better treatment results and reduce the risk of complications.
The use of specific AlumierMD home care products for a minimum of 14 days prior to a peel, and during a course of peels, is essential for patients with darker skin tones to reduce the risk of post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation.
Your skin care professional will build a hyper-customized skincare program to suit your skin type and condition.
To reduce sensitivity on the day of treatment, avoid the use of Retinol Resurfacing Serum, Neck & Décolleté Firming Cream, or Retinol Eye Gel for seven days prior to treatment.
The use of Bright & Clear Solution, Enzymatic Peel, AHA Renewal Serum, Acne Clarifying Cleanser and Acne Balancing Serum should be avoided for two to three days before your peel.
OTHER TOPICAL TREATMENTS TO AVOID
Avoid the use of all retinoid products (eg, retinol, Retin A. Tazorac") and high levels of AHA and BHA products for approximately seven days prior to treatment. Consult your physician before temporarily discontinuing the use of any prescription medications.
To reduce inflammation in the skin and subsequent risk of post-inflammatory pigmentation, avoid sun exposure and tanning beds for at least four weeks before treatment.
Laser/IPL/radio frequency/chemical peel should be avoided for four weeks before treatment.
Filler injections should be avoided for two weeks before treatment.
Toxin injections/microdermabrasion/enzymatic peeling/ waxing/threading should be avoided for seven days before treatment.
The area to be treated should not be shaved 24 hours before treatment.
