INTRA TREATMENT CARE:
CHEMICAL PEEL INSTRUCTIONS:
You may be more sensitive to sun exposure. Take precautions by using Sunscreen SPF 30 and wear protective clothing. We recommend limiting sun exposure for at least one week after your Vitalize peel and 2 to 3 days after your Illumines peel.
This procedure utilizes ingredients that may increase the skin’s sensitivity to the sun and particularly the possibility of sunburn. The use of a sunscreen of at least SPF 30 and limited sun exposure is recommended while using this product and for at least a week afterwards.
The skin may look and feel like a mild windburn for the next two or three days prior to peeling. After 48 hours a slight flaking may occur which can easily be controlled with Aquaphor or Vaseline. Many ingredients in foundations are greasy, fragranced and can be irritating; therefore, foundations should not be worn after the Vitalize Peels or during the days when the skin is actually peeling. Avoid the sun, scrubs, AHAs, glycolic acid, Vitamin C or retinal creams. Let the skin shed at its own rate to avoid scarring or rashes; avoid pulling or peeling shedding skin. After one to two weeks, the skin should look clearer and smoother and the use of normal skin care products can resume.
