We recommend that pregnant or nursing women do not receive chemical peels. As of yet, there are no studies about the effects of these peels on fetuses or nursing babies, however due to the chemical changes in the skin we would advise against this.
If you have been off Accutane for less than 6 months you cannot receive a peel from ourselves.
If you are prone to cold sores, a chemical peel can actually bring on an outbreak of these so we advise taking anti-viral medication before, on the day and the day following your treatment.
Finally, if you have a tendency to scar easily, are taking any form of antibiotics, suffer from cancer or any form of autoimmune disease, or have any open sores you will not be able to get a chemical peel.
Following your treatment, your skin will be more sensitive to natural sunlight and we advise that keep sunscreen on hand and applied for a few days following your peel. Our aesthetician will either include post-peel products in the price of the peel or will sell them afterwards for a reasonable price.
