Make sure that you are also avoiding direct sun exposure and excessive heat. Continue to use a broad spectrum UVA/UVB sunscreen of SPF 30 or higher just as you were prior to your peel.
Make sure to keep your skin well hydrated with a protective moisturizer. Apply it twice daily or more often if needed to reduce the appearance of flaking.
For five days after your chemical peel, do not have electrolysis, facial waxing or use depilatories.
Avoid using retinols and glycolic acids for 10 days post peel.
Do not use scrubs, loofahs, exfoliating sponges or other means of mechanical exfoliation on your face for 7-10 days.
Do not go to a tanning bed for at least two weeks post procedure.
If you are on an acne regimen, delay the use of tretinoin, Retin-A, Differin, Renova, Tazorac, Avage, EpiDuo, or Ziana 5 days post procedure.
It is fine to resume using a vitamin C serum five days after your treatment.
It is extremely important that you DO NOT have another chemical peel until your clinician advises you to. Dermalogica's Pro Power Peel treatments must have atleast a 2 week break since the last treatment.
If you notice increased redness, increased hyperpigmentation or crusting of the skin, contact your doctor or skincare professional.
