DermaPeel is our signature aesthetic treatment, which combines a chemical and physical exfoliation. A DermaPeel can be tailored for any skin type and sensitivity. Regular treatments improve overall texture and tone leaving the skin smoother and brighter.
The dermasweep or dermaplaning portion of this treatment is relatively painless. Once the peel is applied you may feel a mild-moderate stinging sensation.
Discontinue use of any topical retinoids (Retin-A, Tazorac, Differin, Ziana, Epiduo, Tretinoin, Clear Plus, Avene Retrinal or Triacneal, Triluma, etc.) and mechanical or granular exfoliation for five days prior to treatment. Avoid facial waxing for seven days prior to treatment.Follow the recommended skin care regimen as directed by your service provider for treatment. Make sure your skin is not irritated or inflamed before a peel.Please tell your provider if you have a history of cold sores as we recommend pretreatment to prevent a flare. Treatment may not be performed if there is an active cold sore.
Your skin may appear slightly flushed post treatment. This will vary depending on the strength of treatment given. You may experience peeling one to five days post treatment. The amount of peeling can vary from invisible microscopic peeling to more noticeable dry skin flaking. In most cases your skin will feel instantly smoother and brighter.
A series of treatments are recommended to start (four to six treatments), spaced two to four weeks apart to achieve the best results and four to six weeks apart for maintenance. During your first treatment you will meet with your provider. At that time a treatment plan will be discussed.
Results will vary per patient and realistic expectations will be discussed during your first treatment. Having a good at home regimen will help attain optimum results. In addition, smoking, excessive alcohol and excessive sun exposure will limit results.
DermaPeels are safe for all skin types and colors. Patients who have taken isotretinoin (Accutane) within the previous six months cannot have this treatment.Pregnant and nursing patients: We can tailor all treatments using chemical peels and products that are safe for expectant or nursing mothers.
