ProPower Peel Questions and Answers

Your full participation during and after the ProPower Peel treatment will determine the outcome. It is important that you strictly adhere to the post-care products and regimen that your professional skin therapist has recommended. It is possible to have a poor reaction or less-than-expected improvement of the skin. No guarantee is made or implied regarding your precise results, peeling times or discomfort.

After treatment you may experience some tightening of the skin, which may last for several days. Light flaking may begin within 1-3 days and will usually subside within 7-10 days; however, it is impossible to predict this shedding process.

Post Care

  1. Immediately following your treatment, apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen protection (minimum SPF30). Avoid direct sun exposure for 2-3 weeks to prevent hyperpigmentation, and wear a wide-brim hat if you must be in the sun.

  2. Avoid strenuous exercise on the day of your treatment, along with prolonged exposure to heat sources like dry saunas or steam-rooms: these activities increase blood circulation to the face, which can lead to discomfort, redness, swelling or other side effects.

  3. On the night of your treatment you should rinse your face with cool water and cleanse with UltraCalming Cleanser then moistruie with Barrier Defense Booster and Calm Water Gel (all included in the Pro Power Peel Post-procedure kit).

  4. Increase your fluid intake for the next 2-3 days.

  5. Avoid direct sun for 2-3 weeks.

  6. Do not wax or use any type of exfoliating products for 72 hours, or until your skin shows no signs of sensitivity on the treated area.

  7. You will likely begin peeling within 2-3 days. This is normal: Do not pick or peel at scabs, blisters or loose skin, as scarring may occur.

  8. Avoid any type of exfoliating product until directed otherwise by your Professional Skin Therapist.

It is good practice to discontinue the use of prescribed exfoliants at least 48 hours prior, and during Pro Power Peel treatments.

What is the downtime associated with a ProPower Peel treatment?
ProPower Peel is especially designed to deliver all the benefits of a chemical peel without the scarring and downtime.

How do I care for my skin post peel?
You will be given products to use on your skin for the three days following your peel. You should increase your water in take in the days following your peel as well as avoid physical exertion for 24 hours post peel. In the 2-3 weeks following your peel, you should avoid direct sunlight, wear a daily sunscreen of 30SPF or higher, as well as wear a wide brim hat if going in the sun is necessary. These precautions are to prevent hyperpigmentation.

I used to take Accutane.  Can I receive ProPower Peel treatments?

I’m pregnant.  Can I receive ProPower Peel treatments?
