PRE PEEL CARE:

  • Avoid unprotected UV (sun) exposure for a minimum of 4 weeks prior to treatment.

  • Wear broad spectrum SPF 30+ (UVA/UVB) daily.

  • The use of skincare products including a gentle cleanser, hydrating serum & gentle moisturiser will help prepare the skin for treatments & enhance results. Your therapist will advise you of any other preparation required during this time. We also ask if you can refrain from partaking in other skin treatments that aren’t recommended by your therapist. If you do, please notify your therapist so we can accommodate & customise your treatment.

  • Discontinue using prescription vitamin A or high strength over the counter retinol 5-10 days before your treatment unless advised otherwise. Roaccutane must be discontinued for 6months before skin treatments. Please also notify your therapist if you are taking medications & of any additional medications as this may alter the treatment outcome.(you may want to create a list- Blood thinners, antibiotics (both topical & internal, anti-inflamatories etc)

  • If you have a history of herpes simplex or cold sores, you may wish to take anti-viral medications prior to treatments, to prevent an onset.

  • Areas treated with muscle relaxants or dermal fillers must be completely healed or wait 2weeks before any skin treatments can be performed.

 

POST PEEL CARE: 

  • Do not exfoliate, use moisturisers or lotions, which are highly perfumed, or contain active ingredients such as retinol, glycolic acids & vitamin C, for 48-72hrs – 1 week depending on the treatment performed. Your therapist will advise you post treatment.

  • Avoid exercise, excessive sweating, hot showers, spas, beaches, pools, saunas & pools for at least 24-48 hours post treatment.

  • Do not pick or pull at any areas of crusting, as this may increase your chances of infection, resulting in a scar. Your skin will also darken in colour depending on the peel performed. This is normal & if left alone, will be fine. It is normal to experience a purge in breakouts after treatment. This is normal as we are creating stimulation & change in the skin. Please contact your therapist should you be concerned.

  • Do not have waxing done or anything that may cause trauma to the skin during the healing phase.

  • For Jessner’s or TCA Peels: Avoid water for 4-6hours immediately after your chemical peel.

  • Wear broad spectrum SPF 30+ (UVA/UVB) daily & avoid unprotected UV exposure. This will be advised by your therapist.

 

For maximum results, & for long term maintenance, it's important to combine your skin treatments with home care that supports your skin, & keep your skin looking good & feeling great. A routine including a gentle cleanser, hydrating serum & gentle moisturiser is recommended for the first 3 days post treatment.
