Please note that these are considered clinical-grade treatments, and are more more aggressive than superficial "Spa" peels. Each peel product varies in strength from light/medium-depth, to more aggressive peels which involve greater down time. Individual protocol will be determined at time of consultation. In most cases, a series of 6 or more treatments is recommended at 4 week intervals, along with appropriate at~home maintenance for optimum results.
Please be advised that common side effects may include temporary erythema (redness), tightness, irritation and increased sensitivity for 2-7 days post-treatment. Use of tretinoin (Retin-A), retinols, glycolic acid, fruit acid, salicylic acid or any other acid-based or exfoliating products should be ceased 5 days pre-and-post treatment. Accutane should be eliminated 6 months prior to any peeling treatment. Sun exposure should be avoided 3 days pre-and-post treatment. Use of a sunscreen of at least SPF 30 UVA/UVB protection at all times is imperative!
