Collagen Booster RF Peel Post-Treatment Instructions:

For two days post procedure:

  • After receiving a chemical peel, the skin may look and feel like a mild windburn with itching, stinging, redness, heat and/or tightness for the next number of days. After 48 hours of a superficial peel, flaking may occur for 3 to 5 days which can easily be controlled with moisturizers. After 72 hours of a medium depth peel, a more extensive exfoliation will occur for 3-7 days. It is recommended that makeup not be applied the day of treatment, as it is ideal to allow the skin to stabilize and rest overnight.
  • To minimize side effects and maximize results, use the post procedure creams provided which is recommended for 3 to 5 days or until flaking has resolved.
  • Moisturizer should be applied at least twice a day but can be applied more frequently for hydration and to decrease the appearance of flaking.
  • Avoid direct sun exposure and excessive heat. An SPF of at least 30 MUST be used daily.
  • Do not go to a tanning bed for at least two weeks post procedure. This practice should be discontinued due to increased risk of skin cancer and signs of aging.
  • Do not pick or pull on any loosening skin. This could potentially cause hyperpigmentation
  • Do not have any other chemical peel or medical device treatment until your practitioner at releases you to do so.
  • You may resume the regular use of retinoid, alpha-Hydroxy acid, beta-Hydroxy acid, vitamin c or bleaching creams ONLY after peeling process is complete.
  • Stay cool! Heating internally can cause hyperpigmentation.
  • Do not put treated area directly into a hot shower spray.
  • Do not use hot tubs, steam rooms or saunas.
  • Do not go swimming.
  • Do not participate in activities that would cause excessive perspiration.
  • Do not use loofahs or other means of exfoliation.
  • Do not direct a hair dryer onto the treated area.
  • Do not apply ice or ice water to the treated area
  • You should avoid saunas and extreme heat for 24 hours. A recovery cream may be applied after your treatment to help soothe and calm your skin.
  • You should avoid UV exposure for up to 3 weeks after treatment.
  • On an on-going basis we recommend wearing sun cream and skincare products to protect and maintain the skin health, your practitioner will recommend a regime most suitable for you, which will also help maintain the results.
  • Do not shave the treated areas for 24 hours.
  • Avoid sun exposure and/or use SPF 30 with UVA and UVB protection
  • No self-tanning lotions, salon spray tans or tanning beds for 7 days after treatment
Collagen Booster RF Peel Possible Side Effects:
  • Immediately after the treatment you will experience some redness, which can last up to two days.
    • You may apply Mineral makeup immediately after treatment to minimize the redness.
  • Micro-crusting: You may also develop micro-crusting, as the skin cells renew and the resurfacing takes place. This can last for five to seven days but is easy to cover with makeup
  • Skin irritation: May cause mild skin irritation.
  • Pain: There is usually no discomfort after the peel, but, in case there is mild discomfort, pain medications can be provided.
    • You may take an anti-inflammatory Paracetamol if necessary.
  • Redness: A pink or red coloration of the skin may persist for 2-8 weeks after a TCA peel. In rare instances, redness may persist up to six months. This can occur all over or only in certain spots.
  • Wound Healing: Peels cause a superficial wound to the skin that takes approximately 5-7 days to heal. Once the surface is treated, it may be pink and may be sensitive to the sun for approximately 2-8 weeks.
  • Pigment Changes: The treated area may heal with increased or decreased pigmentation. This occurs most often in darker pigmented skin. The darker or lighter areas usually fade in three to six months, though pigment change can be permanent.
  • Swelling: Immediately after the peel, there will be mild to moderate swelling of the skin. This is a temporary condition and will resolve over two to three days.
  • Scarring: There is a very small chance of scarring. This includes hypertrophic scars or, very rarely, keloid scars. Keloid scars are very heavy, raised scar formations. To minimize chances of scarring, it is important that you follow post-operative instructions carefully. It is important that any prior history of unfavourable healing be reported.
  • Eye Exposure: There is also a risk of harmful eye exposure with peels. We will give you protective eyewear. It is important that you keep your eyes closed and have protective eyewear at all times during the treatment.
  • Sun sensitivity: You will be sensitive to the sun for 6-8 weeks after the treatment and will need to protect your skin daily from the sun with sunscreen, hats and sunglasses.
  • Accutane: Generally, you should not have a medium depth peel if you have used Accutane in the last 12 months.
  • Cold Sores: If you are prone to herpes (cold sores, fever blisters), you may need a prescription for acyclovir prior to having medium depth Peel. You will need to avoid exfoliating treatments during a herpes breakout.
