If you are undergoing Microdermabrasion, Hydro-wand, Glycolic Peel or Flash Peel today, Read below for Side effects/post care instructions:
It is normal to experience redness, dryness or slightly irritated skin after undergoing any of these face related treatments.
Potentially, the skin will result in redness or dryness after Microdermabrasion, Hydro-wand, Flash Peel and Glycolic Peel. This will vary with each patient depending on age, skin type, sunlight exposure, & other environmental changes. Avoid direct sun exposure for at least 3 days post treatment. If avoiding sun exposure is not possible, wear a hat that covers the full face and reapply facial sunscreen each hour. Cleanse your face twice daily as normal. Follow up with a facial sunscreen that is Spf 30 or higher in the morning & EGF cream twice daily for at least 2-3 days. You must stay clear of using any active products that would cause your skin cells to turn over for 2-3 days. These products include Glycolic Acids, Benzoyl Peroxide (BPO), Vitamin C serums, and Retinols (including Supreme-A). Contact your Esthetician for any questions regarding post care questions or instructions.
If you are undergoing a Flash Peel: the healing period will vary depending on age, skin type, & environmental changes. Some clients take longer to peel than others. It is important to inform your Esthetician if you are open to having a deeper peel than your previous one. Some clients may require a series of peels before the intended goal is achieved. Follow the same post care instuctions in the paragraph above, but continue these instructions until your peeling, sloughing and flaking has completely stopped. Once your peeling has come to an end, return to active products & skincare routine as normal. Do not pick off or pull at the peeling on your face as it can result in scarring. Allow the epidermis to shed at its own pace as it is different for every skin type. You may use small precise scissors (can also be called eyebrow scissors or cosmetology scissors) to gently snip the dead skin that has peeled.
