Glycolic Peel
Pre-Peel Instructions
Please notify the office at your earliest convenience if you have a history of cold
sores or have had previous laser treatment to your face.
You may wear make-up to your appointment however, it will be removed as part
of the cleansing process.
Peels are not recommended for patients who smoke. Please inform the office if
you are a smoker prior to your appointment.
Post-Peel Information
You may experience redness, stinging or crusting after your procedure. These side
effects usually resolve within 48 hours. Please call the office if you have residual
redness, stinging or crusting that lasts beyond this point.
Apply moisturizer to your skin to maintain hydration after the treatment.
Your next peel may be scheduled no sooner than 2 weeks from your treatment.
The most important thing you can do in the interim to maintain your result is use a
good skin care regimen at home.
Use sunscreen daily to prevent any sun damage and keep your skin protected from
both UVA and UVB rays.
Remember the most dehydrated area of the face is typically around the eyes. Use
an eye cream that moisturizes as well as reduces puffiness and dark circles.
