Treat your skin gently with care. Use a gentle cleanser such as Pure Cleanse from our Silkwood Medical Cosmeceuticals range.
We recommend using our Vitamin B Boost serum immediately after. This helps to repair the skin’s barrier and aid in faster healing.
Avoid Retin A, Retinoids, AHA’s and BHA’s for 5 days post peel as these have an exfoliating effect.
Wear sunblock. You’re exposing vulnerable immature cells so you must make sure they don’t get damaged from UV rays. Apply sunscreen daily on the face and neck and limit your time outdoors to reduce sun exposure.
Use a skin lightener. Since chemical peels can stimulate melanin activity, you don’t want to end up with post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation, a condition where you can develop brown spots post-peel (common in skin that already struggles with discoloration/brown spots). Our Vitamin C serum and brightening serum works beautifully for preventing and lightening discoloration.
If you are prone to cold sores it is best to take anti-virals prior to treatment.
