What to do after enzyme & peel treatment 

It is so important to use products that work in conjunction with your peels to help prevent and lighten discoloration. Hydrating and healing ingredients must also be used to reinforce the skin's protective barrier. Remember, 70% of your results comes from what you do at home!​

  • Cleanse your face with Facial Cleanser, using warm water, dry with towel, spray Toner / Mist

  • Continue with Lightening Serum & Moisturizer. In the morning, protect with SPF 50, reapply as needed

  • Reduce any visible shedding / flaking: moisturizer may be applied 2-3 times during the week to reduce any visible shedding/flaking while infusing the skin with antioxidants to protect & hydrate the skin          

  • Do nothing that will cause your body to become heated, perspire, or cause inflammation and/or breakout (exercise, sauna, hot tubs, etc.)

  • Always use warm water on your face & do not scrub. Avoid chlorine.

  • You may or may not experience some visual flaking or shedding of the skin approximately 2 - 4 days post peel. The amount of visual flaking is not indicative of your end results. If heavier shedding is present, do not under any circumstances, pick or manually peel the skin.

  • You must take precautions to avoid sun exposure to protect your skin as well as to get the full benefit of the peel. Peels increase your skin's sensitivity to the sun and particularly the possibility of sunburn. Recommend staying indoors as much as possible and use SPF50 daily

  • Do not use any Glycolic, Retinol, or Retinol A until your skin is back to normal. Use the Post Treatment Kit for proper home care post peel. For Men, do not shave for at least 72 hours or more after peel. Everyone's experience is unique.
