POST PEEL TREATMENT TIPS

 

You have received an AlumierMD skin treatment.

Due to the nature of these treatments, you should not necessarily expect to ‘peel’.

However, you may have light to moderate flaking in a few localised areas for 3 to 7 days.

You may also experience residual redness, which lasts in most patients from 1 to 12 hours.

It is recommended that you do not apply makeup the day of the treatment. It is ideal to allow the skin to stabilise and rest overnight. However, makeup can be applied, if necessary 

Tonight your skin will feel tight and ‘pulled’. Although you may or may not actually ‘peel’. It is likely that you will experience light ‘exfoliation’. 

It may take 2 or more treatments to target the deeper layers of skin to loosen and ‘peel’. 

In order to obtain maximum results and avoid complications, please follow the post peel instructions listed below for approximately 5 to 7 days. 

Avoid direct sun exposure and excessive heat. 

Only use the following skin care products for 5 to 7 days post treatment. 

AM routine

Step 1: Sensicalm Cleanser
Step 2: Recovery Balm
Step 3: Sheer Hydration Broad Spectrum SPF 40 Sunscreen

 

PM routine 

Step 1: Sensicalm Cleanser
Step 2: Recovery Balm

Discontinue use of any product that irritates your skin and contact your skincare professional. It’s important to keep your skin hydrated. Hydration is key to proper healing.
