Do not wax or use depilatories for at least 48 hours after the treatment. Don't use any medium or deep chemical peels or laser treatments for at least two weeks after your facial treatment. Don't use any exfoliating treatments, like glycolic acid or enzymes, for at least 48 hours after the treatment.
If you feel your skin could benefit from both hydradermabrasion and a light chemical peel, schedule your peel two to four weeks after your hydradermabrasion session. You may be so satisfied by how much your skin has improved after hydradermabrasion you may decide you don't need a peel.
Because of this, it is generally recommended to at least begin with a hydrafacial treatment over a chemical peel. Here at Skinworx, we offer result-driven skin treatments to get your skin looking younger, clearer, and more vital.
Pre Chemical Peel:
Avoid extensive sun exposure, especially in the 10 days prior to your scheduled chemical peel. No facial waxing for 7 days prior to treatment.
There is no downtime after the treatment, and you can remain active at home or at work while you recover. The results of the treatment are immediately noticeable, but your new skin may be sensitive. A chemical peel after your dermaplane session will provide you with clean and radiant skin, but it will not last forever.
It usually takes several treatment sessions to see the desired outcomes. Most people notice some improvement after their first chemical peel, but with multiple treatments over the span of several months, patients will be astonished by how much better their skin looks.
Peeling skin before it is ready to come off can be counter-productive. After three to four days, most of the peeling should be complete, but it may take anywhere from five to seven days before your fresh, new skin has developed. Within seven to fourteen days, your skin should be completely healed.
Combining chemical peels and microneedling enhances your skin inside and out. We recommend that you have a chemical peel first to exfoliate the top layers of your skin. Then, 4-6 weeks later, you start your microneedling treatments to boost collagen production in the deeper layers of your skin.
It's critical to protect skin from the sun at any time, but especially after a peel – no matter how strong or what the type of peel was. Ideally, a person would avoid the sun for the first week or two, but if they can't, then they should wear sunscreen.
While dermaplaning and chemical peels are effective apart, they work synergistically together. Dermaplaning helps to remove the outer layers of the skin, making the chemical solution in a chemical peel far more effective.
Firstly, unlike chemical peels, Hydrafacial is a non-invasive skin rejuvenation treatment. Hydrafacial and chemical peels both exfoliate your skin but unlike chemical peels, Hydrafacial doesn't cause any skin damage. Plus it gives Hydrating benefit which cannot be gained from chemical peels.
Best for: Microneedling is a good option over HydraFacial for those who have a deep, permanent acne scars and other facial scarring, and is recommended for all skin tones. It is not a good choice for those who are at a higher risk of infection or have a low tolerance for pain or needles.
The easy answer is that you can have HydraFacial CT treatments about once a month, or once every 4 weeks. This is the general frequency that is most compatible for most people and that can generate the best skin-boosting benefits.
Yes we recommend that you discontinue retinol and related products 3 days before your Hydrafacial. You should also avoid any glycolic or other home-based peel for the same amount of time. If you are using these products please speak with our staff for specific guidance several days before your Hydrafacial.
Different acids are able to penetrate to different depths during the treatment. Over the following week, the cells separate away giving visible signs of flaking or peeling. Sometimes this may only be happening when you wash your skin so you may not be aware of the 'peeling'.
Wait 24 hours before getting any skin rejuvenating treatments like microdermabrasion, microneedling or chemical peels.
Doctors will generally recommend waiting at least six weeks before revisiting your tanning spot outdoors or under the tanning bed lights. The deeper the peel, the longer you should wait, and a strong treatment may even require that stay out of the sun for two months or more.
Chemical peels generally work best on superficial imperfections; conversely, microneedling penetrates deeper to improve more troublesome issues. Many people with wrinkles find a combination of microneedling and chemical peels deliver the best results.
To ensure the right healing environment, for 2-3 days do not use AHA's (glycolic Acid), retinol, acidic or “active” ingredients. Exposure to sun should also be avoided or zinc based sunblock should be used.
Peeling and flaking of the treatment area may occur three to five days after microneedling as a result of increased skin cell turnover. Avoid picking and scratching at your skin. Instead, use a gentle moisturizer to help combat dry skin.
A licensed esthetician is authorized to perform the light and moderate peels, but only licensed physicians, such as dermatologists, can perform a deep chemical peel.
Chemical peels not only remove sunspots but also improve the appearance of the following: Scars. Wrinkles. Dark Spots.
For deeper wrinkles, a medium or deep chemical peel is the best option. For rough skin caused by sun damage, microdermabrasion or a light chemical peel will work. If you have severe damage or are at risk of melasma, medium or deep chemical peels are better suited.
In some cases, it may make sense to receive a light chemical peel every two to five weeks. If you opt for a medium chemical peel, you may want to receive this treatment every three to nine months. A deep chemical peel is one of those treatments that is only performed once.
