What to expect:
Procedure time takes approximately 20-30 minutes.
It is normal to feel a slight tingling or stinging sensation during the peeling process which takes 3-5 minutes.
Skin will immediately feel smoother, but will normally be a little red and irritated in appearance for a few days. It can easily be covered with light foundation and you may resume regular activities.
Over the course of 24-48 hours skin will feel tight and occasionally sting if moistened or sweating. Skin may appear dryer initially and it is normal to have a light peeling of the very top layer of skin. A washcloth may be used to gently exfoliate the dead skin cells from these areas. Occasionally areas with acne may bleed slightly and gentle pressure will be needed. About 10% of the time there will be itching which will resolve within a few days of treatment. You may use an over the counter Hydrocortisone cream over irritated areas twice daily or Bacitracin ointment.
Over the first 1-2 weeks the skin will be rebuilding collagen and tightening helping to improve the youthful appearance of the skin. Skin will feel smoother and refreshed.
