The Perfect Peel Instructions

Days 1-2

The treated area will feel tight and may appear slightly darker.

  • The peel solution should remain on the treated area(s) for at least 6 hours.
  • During the first 6 hours, do not wash, touch, rub or apply make-up to the treated area.
  • If needed, make-up can be applied on Day 2. Do not apply sunscreen, moisturizer, make-up or any other product the day of peel application.
  • If you are not experiencing any irritation or discomfort, the peel solution can remain on until your evening cleansing.
  • On evenings 1 and 2, gently wash and dry the treated are. Effectively apply the post-peel treatment towelette to the treated area and discard actual towelette when finished. Let dry thoroughly. Leave the treatment on overnight, do not wash off.
  • If you are experiencing any irritation or discomfort, apply a small amount of 1% or 2.5% hydrocortisone to the area.
  • Do not use any moisturizing products on the treated area until peeling begins (usually on Day 3).

Days 3-5

Peeling generally begins on Day 3.

  • After peeling begins, apply The Perfect Peel moisturizer (which is included in the post-peel take home kit) to the peeling areas to control the peeling and to alleviate the tightness.
  • Do not rub, pick or pull on the peeling skin, let the peeling occur naturally. Rubbing, picking or pulling can cause scarring. You may cut hanging skin with a pair of small scissors.
  • Gently wash (do not scrub) and dry the treated area morning and night. Apply The Perfect Peel moisturizer and SPF 30 sunscreen every 2-3 hours.
  • The treated area will be very sensitive to sun exposure so daily sun exposure should be limited and sunscreen of at least SPF 30 should be worn.

Day 6>

The peeling process is generally complete (Mild sloughing may still occur in certain treated areas).

  • You may resume use of your normal skin care products.
  • If the treated area becomes irritated, wait until the sensitivity subsides.
  • Continue to protect your skin with a sunscreen containing at least SPF 30.
