PRE TREATMENT

Preparation for a Peel Treatment

Please follow the instructions below to prepare for your skin treatment:

  • For best results and to reduce the risk of complications, it is recommended that you use Alumier MD home care products for 10 to 14 days prior to your treatment. Use of Alumier MD will allow for better treatment results and reduce the risk of complications.

  • If you are lactating, pregnant, or may become pregnant, consult your physician before receiving any treatment.

  • Avoid sun exposure and tanning beds for at least two weeks prior to treatment. Avoid the use of retinoid products (eg. retinol, Retin A, Tazorac) and AHA and BHA products for approximately 7 days prior to treatments. Consult your doctor before temporarily discontinuing the medication to prepare for treatment.

Please allow 14 days post laser hair removal, photo-facials, radio frequency, microdermabrasion and previous chemical peels.

Please allow 7 days post waxing/threading, botox and dermal fillers.

POST TREATMENT

After your Alumier MD skin treatment, you should not necessarily expect to “peel”. However, you may have light to moderate flaking in a few localized areas for 3 to 7 days after treatment. You may also experience residual redness, which lasts in most patents from 1 to 12 hours.

Alumier MD skin treatments may cause slight redness, tightness, peeling, flaking and temporary dryness. Most clients do not find it necessary to apply make-up, as the skin will be smooth, dewy and radiant following your treatment.

It is recommended that you do not apply the home care products the day of the treatment. Instead, allow the skin to stabilize and rest overnight.

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

 

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