Rejuvenize Peel

What to expect?

Immediately following the peel:

  • Skin may be tight and more red/pink than usual.
  • Skin may feel a bit tacky and have a yellowish or orange tinge due to the retinol; this is temporary and will fade within a few hours.
  • Wait until bedtime to wash your face.

24 hours after the peel & until the peeling is complete:

  • Your skin may feel tighter until it starts to peel
  • Peeling generally starts 48 to 72 hours after the procedure and can last 2-5 days
  • DO NOT PICK OR PULL SKIN. Allow your skin to peel at it’s own pace (premature peeling can result in dry, cracked, raw skin that can become hyperpigmented after an infection)
  • Individual results may vary

What to Avoid?

  • Any strenuous exercising the day of your procedure and until your skin stops peeling.
  • Direct sunlight for at least 1 week—Use sunscreen recommended by your provider for or at least SPF 30.
  • Use the following products/procedures until your skin stops peeling completely:
  • Tretinoin, retinoids, alpha-hydroxy acid ( AHA) products, and bleaching creams
  • Facials, injections, facial hair removal, injectable fillers, microdermabrasion, and laser treatments ( including laser hair removal.

Easy Post-Peel Care for Optimal Results?

  • Ask your skincare professional how to compliment your SkinMedica Peel with an at-home skincare regimen
  • Use a comprehensive treatment plan in between peels or following any in-office procedures.
