Peel Treatment After Care Instructions
You have just received an AlumierMD Skin Treatment. Due to the nature of these treatments, you should not necessarily expect to “peel”. However, you may have light to moderate flaking in a few localized areas for 3 to 7 days. You may also experience residual redness, which lasts in most patients from 1 to 12 hours. It is recommended that you do not apply makeup the day of the treatment. It is ideal to allow the skin to stabilize and rest overnight. However, makeup can be applied, if necessary. Tonight your skin will feel tight and “pulled”. Although you may or may not actually “peel”, it is likely that you will experience a light “exfoliation”. It may take 2 or more treatments to target the deeper layers of skin to loosen and “peel”. In order to obtain maximum results and avoid complications, please follow the post-peel instructions listed below for approximately 5 to 7 days:
Avoid direct sun exposure and excessive heat.
Only use the products provided to you in your post-procedure kit for 5 to 7 days post treatment.
Discontinue use of any product that irritates your skin and contact your skin care professional.
Important: Keep your skin hydrated. Hydration is key to proper healing.
DO NOT cleanse your skin on the evening of your peel.
DO NOT pick or pull any flaking skin.
DO NOT tan or use a tanning booth for at least 14 days post peel.
DO NOT have electrolysis, waxing, threading or any other form of hair removal for 7 days post treatment.
