What is Perfect Derma Peel?
Glutathione, Kojic Acid, TCA, Retinoic Acid, Phenol, Salicylic Acid, and Vitamin C are all used in the Perfect Derma Peel. The antioxidant Glutathione stops free radicals from harming, slows aging, and keeps wrinkles from forming.
Kojic Acid is a powerful skin lightener that has been shown to increase collagen and elastin production. This makes the skin brighter and firmer. TCA, Phenol, and Retinoic Acid eliminate wrinkles and fix pigment problems.
Salicylic Acid gets rid of dead skin cells and reduces inflammation. The ingredients are potent on their own, but when they work together, the results are excellent.
This treatment is a beautiful mix of nutrient-rich ingredients meant to exfoliate and refresh the skin, making the cells turn over faster. The dead skin comes off quickly. So, what should your chemical peel aftercare look like?
Here’s what we suggest.
Your Peel Aftercare
Here are some great tips for taking care of your skin after a chemical peel so you can keep the best results:
1. Hands Off
The main goal of a chemical peel is to pull up and slough off damaged skin cells, revealing healthy, glowing skin underneath. When the dead skin starts to come off, don’t touch it, pick at it, or scratch it.
Let the dead skin fall off, and don’t peel it off with your fingers. Peeling dead skin off with your fingers can cause scars.
2. Keep Your Hair Away!
Using a hair band to pull your hair away from your face can help you avoid touching your face and keep breakouts from happening. It is essential to let your skin naturally peel without touching it when you brush your hair back.
If you touch your skin with dirty fingers or hands, the dirt will stick to the new skin and could cause breakouts. If you do get pimples, don’t try to treat them yourself! Have your esthetician take care of them, or don’t do anything.
3. Moisturize (As much as possible)
Your skin will be sensitive after you get a chemical peel. Some of the products you usually use to take care of your skin may have too potent or irritating ingredients.
During the peeling process, the only things you should put on your skin are sunscreen and just enough of a neutral moisturizer to make you feel good. Part of the peeling process is that the skin feels and looks dry, and your moisturizer won’t be able to fix that.
We recommend you use very little or no moisturizer for the first few days after treatment. Be careful not to rub or scrub the moisturizer into the skin when you put it on.
Spread a thin layer of moisturizer all over your skin and repeat as needed throughout the day. Once the peeling process is done, and your skin no longer feels, usually about a week after your chemical peel, you can return to your regular skincare routine.
4. Remember the SPF!
You just got a chemical peel to get rid of damaged skin, so it’s essential to protect the new, sensitive skin that’s coming out by putting on sunscreen whenever you can be in the sun.
You must protect your newly brightened skin, whether sitting by a window, outside or in front of any screen. Make sure to choose a physical sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher and a high safety rating that covers a wide range of wavelengths. Your skin will thank you later.
5. Let It Peel
You shouldn’t rub, peel, or pull dry, dead skin off during peeling. As soon as the skin is no longer too sensitive, it is safe to exfoliate.
We recommend asking your doctor for the best way to get rid of dead skin after a peel. We understand how each product is different and may contain gentle enzymes that soften and melt away dead skin.
Also, you can’t only use brushes once the skin stops falling off, which can take up to a week after treatment.
6. Lighten Up
Now is an excellent time to come for a consultation and get a personalized skin care plan to keep your skin looking bright and healthy.
You should ensure you have a good antioxidant, your first line of defense daily against free radicals. Specialists in skin care can tell you more about how melanocyte down regulators can help with stricter pigment.
7. Think Positive!
Also, it’s a good idea to read a book for a few days and not worry about how your skin looks. The result is more than worth what it took to get there! Thinking positively can help you long for smooth and happy skin.
