For most patients, we recommend a minimum of one month in between peels. The frequency and number of peels depends on various factors and should be determined by you and your skin care professional.

Chemical Peel: What to Expect

 

PEEL FREQUENCY:

The Perfect 10 Peel can be scheduled in a series of two or more peels to achieve your desired results. There should be a minimum of one month separation between each peel. A good rule of thumb might be to plan for a series of 3 chemical peels about 5 weeks apart. The Perfect 10 Peel complements many popular aesthetic treatments including Botox and fillers. Your peel can be enhanced by pretreatment with aesthetic skincare products including DermaGlo Retinol Antioxidant Smoothing Serum as recommended by your provider.

WHAT TO EXPECT:

Shortly following your peel, your skin may feel tight. You are likely to see visible peeling within 2-3 days after the procedure which may last between 7-10 days. Please note that although you are likely to see physical peeling of the skin following your in office chemical peel, this is not necessary in order to benefit from the chemical peel Immediately after your procedure, you should avoid direct sunlight and use a broad-spectrum physical sunscreen SPF 30 or higher for at least 10 days. Beginning the evening of the peel and continuing for a minimum of 10 days, it is highly recommended that you cleanse your face with a gentle cleanser to ensure tolerance. DermaGlo Antioxidant Botanical 

Soothing Cleanser would be one great option. Please cleanse the skin morning and evening. Gently wash the skin using your hands. Avoid using a washcloth or loofa. Do not scrub your skin or pick/remove peeling skin. It will slough naturally.

Moisturize as necessary (it is not uncommon for your skin to be very dry especially during winter months). In the event the you experience irritation you may apply a 1% hydrocortisone product for a few days. In general, apply Perfect 10 Peel Soothing Recovery Ointment once or twice per day for the first few days (for acne prone skin limit use of this ointment). Once dryness has diminished, you may apply a slightly thinner moisturizing product such as DermaGlo Potent Triple Antioxidant Cream or DermaGlo Enriched Bio-Thearpy Cream. Every morning apply a physical barrier sunscreen such as DermaGlo Tinted Physical Sunscreen BB Cream or DermaGlo Sheer Sunscreen Spray- Broad Spectrum Physical SPF 50 (sprayed into the hand and applied to the face from the hand). Reapply sunscreen as needed. It is recommended that you avoid sun exposure for 10 days following your peel. 


Microneedling

Microneedling is a minimally invasive procedure used to soften fine lines and wrinkles, improve skin laxity and texture, even skin tone, and diminish scars and signs of premature aging. Also known as collagen induction therapy, microneedling incorporates the use of a specialized pen with tiny motorized needles to stimulate the skin's natural healing process. Collagen is a vital protein which gives our skin strength and elasticity. Collagen synthesis begins by creating micro-injuries in the skin, and the end result is smoother, firmer, younger-looking skin. This procedure is performed in a safe and precise manner with the use of a sterile needle head, and it is normally completed within 15-30 minutes, depending on the required treatment and anatomical site. Best results are achieved after a series of microneedling treatments. 

Integrated Dermatology of Fairfax uses the Strata MicroPen (previous known as Skin Stylus). Unlike other popular automated microndedling systems, the Strata MicroPen is the only micro therapy system that can be autoclave sterilized. The Strata MicroPen seven step safety system prevents cross-contamination between patients and incorporates the patent-pending Biolock cartridge. Safety is our priority! 

While micro needling has many applications, it is most popular in our practice as a treatment for acne scarring. Call to schedule your consultation today!
