Pre Treatment Advice (up to 5-7 days prior)
Aftercare for skin peels
Risks & Reactions
Reactions from treatment include: skin redness and flushing, peeling, dryness, irritation, tightness, itching, tenderness, accentuated lines & wrinkles due to dryness, stinging and swelling. These effects will usually resolve within hours and many people are able to return to their normal activities the same or next day.
All skin is different and you may experience these reactions for longer. However, these reactions are temporary and typically resolve within 3-7 days as the skin returns to normal. There is a small risk of side effects causing the skin to turn very red, blister, swell, peel and later scab and crust. In severe cases infection and ulceration may result, although this is not expected to occur due to sterility of the procedure and the minimally invasive nature of the peel. There is a small risk that hyperpigmentation of the skin can occur after the procedure, although this is not normally expected due to the superficial type of peel used.
Failure to follow the aftercare advice detailed can increase the risk of the above.
