Preparing For Chemical Peel Treatment

During your consultation a complete medical history will be taken to assess your suitability, and the benefits and possible side effects will be discussed. If you suffer from cold sores, oral anti-viral medication should be started 2 days prior to the treatment and continued for 3 days after the treatment.

Before a peeling procedure, it is recommended that the client undergoes 2 weeks (minimum) of pre-treatment with twice daily use of a glycolic acid home-care product. This will improve the peel results, and identify potential sensitive skins to glycolic acid.

On the day of the procedure you should arrive at the clinic without make-up or perfume.
